Went out with Anna and Captain Eddie for an amazing day in and on the water. Really smooth ride out, great conversation and education, yummy snacks, and of course an unforgettable swim with Valiente – a very gentle whale shark who let us swim beside him as if we where part of his clan. Anna shared great insights and took great photos and videos of each person. A really memorable time, indeed!

Dear Lisa G

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Valiente is definitely one of my favorites, he always swims slow )). I am glad you like the pictures and videos, we do our best so all the guests have several to choose. We hope you visit us again soon! next time tour to the islands of Espiritu Santo.

We originally booked with another company, who canceled on us a week before our trip because they claimed the whale shark season was over. Anna and Capt Eddy were confident they could still find some. They delivered 100% and located three beautiful whale sharks for us to spend time with.

Takeaway: Anna and her team are amazing and delivered where others were too afraid to try. My brother and I had a great time and highly recommend everyone go with her!

Dear Peteman100

The season ends on April 30th, but in April there is less sharks that in peak season and finding them requires more time and effort, but we don't want any guests to leave disappointed and not enjoy this great experience. Thank you for trusting us and yes, we were lucky, we found not one, but 3. Until the next time!

This was the most majestic, magical experience I have ever had in my life. And, thats saying a lot. Anna, the owner, was absolutely hilarious from start to finish. Her energy and passion about the sea/ocean life is remarkable. She gave us a personalized experience by staying away from the other boats and finding our own private whale sharks to swim with. Despite the size of the animals, she made us feel confident and comfortable in the water. I would definitely book with her again.

We couldn't have been happier with our all day tour to see the whale sharks in La Paz. It was an amazing journey and both the guide and boat driver were super helpful, kind and attentive to our every needs. I would recommend this trip to anyone!!

Family trip including 8 yo granddaughter was lots of fun, amazingly eye-opening (literarily) and run very well by VIP tours and the guide Katrin (trilingual) so everyone understood! We were provided wet suits to fit, mask and snorkels (we had ours tho) and fins to dive w the amazing whale shark and sea lions; we then had a excellent ceviche nd taco lunch on a beach shared with just another boat-this place is a gift to the sensesit is so beautiful
we simply loved this excursion
