Eric (sp) was a great guide. Since it is at the end of the season, there are fewer whale sharks around and he wanted to be sure we experienced swimming with the whale sharks. Small group, individualized attention. It was a perfect day! No wind, clear water and three sharks!

Experience of swimming with the whale shark was great but we were promised GoPro footage which we never received. This was disappointing.

Whale shark of a time.

Carla was an excellent guide and so helpful navigating around the sharks that were moving most of the time. Her lecture before the dive was interesting, helpful, and done efficiently while we were on route. The captain did a fantastic job also maneuvering the boat to get us close enough to the sharks without endangering shark or swimmers. The only issue is when we dove in to see a whale shark and a shadow turned out to be a great white (just kidding).

We had a great experience swimming with whale sharks. The tour left on time and we were back in La Paz before noon. Tania was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. I’m a ridiculous claustrophobe and had trouble wearing my mask but Tania and our captain (sorry I don’t remember his name!) went out if their way to make sure I had the opportunity for an encounter.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to see and dive with the whale sharks. Rodrico and Carla were both accommodating to our group which ranged in ages from 3 - 72. The trip out was longer than expected because of where the whale sharks were feeding but it only made the experience better. We still had plenty of time to view and swim with these incredible animals. Thanks again!
