A once in a life time experience. My group was super friendly. Silvia has been super reassuring as I was really anxious about breathing with the snorkeling mask. with all the layers and dry suits they provide you, you do not feel the cold and even if it was quite cloudy outside, the spectacle underwater was amazing!

Thomas was super nice guide. Easy and Spectacular snorkeling. I shot some nice videos myself. Cold water killed my GoPro battery before the shallow Gulf at the end of the dive. Didn't matter though...trip worth taking
