Omar was a wonderful and experienced guide who made our Dolphin & whale watching tour a worthwhile memory. Thanks to him and his mindfulness we got to see both a family of bucklewhales and dozens of dolphins at a close range. He made sure to stop at a distance that was close enough to enjoy the beauty of these mammals yet undisturbing to them. Unlike other boats (who all seemed to stop at the exact same spot at the same time and hence scaring dolpfins and whales away) he made sure to only stick around long enough before the mammals felt disturbed and leave a little before all the other boats came along. He was knowledgeable, friendly, mindful and spoke very good English. We were the first boat that left that morning and we got everything that was promised - time-wise and quality-wise. I recommend him and his tour to anyone who thinks about doing it. He is 100 % the best and he offers the tour for the exact same price as the others.

Literally just finished the sea safari tour and could not recommend it enough! We went out with Johnny who spoke excellent English and was really helpful and friendly the whole trip. We got a great tour of all the beaches and he was really informative, giving the best spots for snorkelling etc. Saw so many dolphins and some of the group even got to swim in the sea close to them. The sea turtles scare a little easier but we still saw a fair few - an absolutely incredible experience! Also managed to see some manta rays in the distance. The guides genuinely want you to enjoy yourself, nothing is rushed and the whole trip is pleasant. Even of you don't see much wildlife, the boat trip itself is amazing. At 500 pesos a person it is well worth the money and one of the best things you could do in Puerto Escondido.

We went out with Omar and his team to see the humpback whales, dolphins and sea turtles. Omar was full of amazing information and although we were not lucky enough to see the humpback whales, we saw hundreds of spotted dolphins and sea turtles. We could not rate this company highly enough. So professional and informative.

Omar is a fantastic captain, safe and great at finding the perfect location to see the wildlife promised. We had a fantastic experience and saw so many turtles, spotted dolphins and humpback whales. Omar speaks both Spanish and English and makes it a fun experience for all aboard. A true highlight of our visit!
