Although we did not catch anything, the experience was still a fun one!

I booked a fishing and snorkeling trip with Mario.  Mario did greet us but had 2 others that took us on the excursion.  No fish were caught and they took us through very rough waters.  My son got very sick and they finally talked to us for the first time about 45 minutes into the trip…most of the time they talked to each other in Spanish.  When we arrived at the snorkel sight they realized they forgot to take the snorkeling masks so we wasted about 25 minutes getting snorkeling equipment from other boats in the area.  Then they didn’t have the right size flippers for my husband even though I gave them all of our shoes sizes several days before the excursion.  The best part of the trip was the personalized snorkeling Julian gave us ...he did an awesome job…showing us many fish and fed the sting ray.  Many improvements are needed on this excursion, but we made the best of it and really enjoyed the snorkeling .
