    This was such a great experience. The water is was choppy and Martin was great sticking with the weaker swimmer in our group and providing support and teaching. Even on a low visibility day we saw turtles and a stingray! Great recommendations. Kind person 💜

    Martin was amazing and the experience was magical! He is super nice and didn’t mind pulling me around with his ring buoy since I’m not a great swimmer. Made me feel really comfortable in the ocean. Best part was we saw lots of marine life.

    What a wonderful experience! This was our first time swimming with turtles and other marine life and we were not disappointed. Martin was very knowledgeable and kind. My wife and I really enjoyed every minute of it. Since my wife is not a great swimmer, Martin made sure to stick by her side and make sure she had the best experience without feeling nervous about the big ocean. We definitely recommend this experience to anyone coming to look for a great day!

    Such a dream! Martin was very kind with us, he had a lot of patience because I was not really confident by breathing… and then under water, that was just amazing, we have seen turtles, fishes, stingrays, coral… it was so beautiful! Thanks a lot Martin for everything…

    Martin ha sido un excelente anfitrion para nadar con tortugas. Nos ha guiado a ver Tortugas y otros animales marinos en la excursion y ayudado con el equipo de snorkeling.
