Ramon is passionate about whale sharks and has been studying them for many many years. He is highly respectful of them and hires the best boat drivers and guides and follows all the rules and regulations (unlike others we saw). We took his tour twice as we loved it ! Make sure you book with Ramon!

My best friend and I have always wanted to swim with whale sharks. When we were in high school in Los Angeles many years ago, we played hooky one day, went to the beach and saw a pod of dolphins swimming off the coast of Zuma beach. We swam out to them and had about 30 magical minutes with wild... More

Ramon and crew were terrific in guiding us when we swam with the whale sharks. The whale shark experience was extraordinary. We also snorkled on a reef and saw amazing reef fish. I would definitely book with Ramon again.

We had a horrible situation come up with the airline we booked to go to Cancun with, were forced to miss our flight, and we had to cancel our vacation because of the airlines mistake. Ramon was so incredibly kind to show empathy for our situation and gave us our full refund back within a day or two. He was... More

This was a "Bucket List" item for us. We booked as soon as reservations were available for 2016 to get the tour during Full Moon in July. What an amazing trip. We met with Ramon the night before as briefed. The reservations are easy on his web site and you can use PayPal if you wish. We left at 7:30... More

Amazing experience to see whale sharks on the surface and then to snorkel with them. The whale sharks congregate to feast on fish eggs, especially a few days before and after the full moon. Two people per guide were allowed in the water at a time. Ramon kept us pretty close to the boat for safety. You must wear a... More

I would highly recommend you choose this tour company. Ramon is the one that actually started these tours many years ago and accomplished the rules and regulations for the authorities to give permission to tourist to have the magnificent experience. It feels right to venture out to visit these amazing creatures with someone that is highly respectable of them and... More

First off, the whale sharks were amazing and I would absolutely recommend snorkeling with them! However, after all the great reviews I'd read for Ramon, I was pretty disappointed. He was late to the meeting point the night before the trip. The equipment they had (snorkels and masks) were not very good at all. I would definitely bring your own... More

We spend a good 7 hours on the speedboat racing through the ocean trying to find these beasts. We traveled quite a lot of miles and saw many Dolphins from up close, but sadly no whale sharks. Crew was very nice and gave us back half our money :) Felix
