The boat trip we booked was not possible due to an engine problem. We switched to another trip with the same company but (effectively) covered the same options. It was a really good trip. The dolphin sightings were amazing and we had some good snorkelling also. Our hosts were friendly and fun. I would definitely go back to them. My daughter had a wonderful birthday trip
John was an exceptional guide, for a hillbilly (private joke with John), passionate and really paying attention to details to make sure the guests are happy at any minute during the tour. to john: is there a Costco at the visitor center of the volcano? (private joke again with John)
First of all: it was awesome. We went from the Marina to a bay that I have been looking at all vacation, that I didn't know that Dolphins congregated. And so many Dolphins! Unfortunately I got sea sick, but the staff was very understanding. (I was the only one that did. I have very serve Motion sickness. And didn't take any thing for it. So silly me!) after that we went to another bay and went reef snorkeling. It was so pretty! I had recovered by that point and was able to enjoy myself throughly. Then snacks because that much swimming made us hungry! My only tip (with thankfully we did) have this be your only activity of the day, if your not used to swimming in the ocean. Both of us who went were wiped out for the rest of the day. (In a great kind of way, but still)
