    Despite it raining harder and harder as we got suited up and ready to go, this was an amazing experience, led by an outstanding group of people. Vanesa, who was our guide, was not only super informative, but very sweet and fun. Every step of the way she made sure we were safe, comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Cannot recommend her enough! Pablo was also helpful in gearing up our group and getting us warmed up after. The photos taken were very nice to round out the experience!

    This is an absolutely unique and amazing tour. Do NOT be reticent to enjoy because of the cold water. Your cheeks and hands will get wet and be a little cold but the suits you use kept us very warm, even for Floridians. Check-in instructions were clear and easy. Guides were extremely helpful and the phots turned out great. No where else in the world can you experience what this is so do not miss it.

    Alvaro was a great guide! He was very knowledgable but also let us appreciate the quiet while we were snorkeling. The gear worked very well, and we did not get wet at all. We wore leggings, wool socks, and long sleeve shirts underneath the dry suit. Even though the water was cold, we felt comfortable while we were snorkeling because of all the gear. The meeting place is a short walk to the parking lot. We were glad that we did the first snorkel of the day, because we did not have to wait in line to get into the water. The parking lot was also empty when we arrived but was full upon leaving, so I would recommend the earlier time slot. The water was extremely clear, and this was truly an unforgettable experience. Also, the pictures that they take are a bonus. They are included in the trip cost and are easy to download after your snorkeling experience. I highly recommend!
