We saw whales, sea turtles and a pod of thousands of spinner dolphins! So much fun. Even jumped in the water with them.

Not quite as sold. Was supposed to be in English. Was not. Fortunately other travellers interpreted. Was suppose to be VIP while boat. Was not. A good trip none the less.

One of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen! Our Captain was very knowledgeable & respectful about the ocean. Also got the opportunity to swim & snorkel in the sea and a interesting way to meet other travelers.

Can't find you ...
, Mar. 2020
Didn't have Trip ... Went to Puerto Escondido at agreed time but could not find designated beach ... No signage and locals we talked with didn't know of beach ... Are we talking about the same Puerto Escondido (south of Loreto Bay)? ... So, we missed a gorgeous day and we're out of pocket a fair bit of money

Hello Rick. I am so sorry for replying so late, I didn't see this review. I deeply apologyze and I don't have any feedback on what happened because we don't know any Loreto Bay. Anyways, thank you for letting us know we will be much more attentive. Thank you for your feedback and if you are ever around Puerto Escondido we would like to make up this experience. Have a great day.
Seeing the Dolphins under water and a mother and baby whale swimming
, Mar. 2020
I had the best time with Eco adventures I went with Carlos on his tequilla boat! We saw so many dolphins and turtles!! Carlos was great when I felt a bit sea sick and he assured me that getting into the water would make me feel better (which it strangely did) we also snorkeled and saw and heard the dolphins under water. After the tour was done he called us back as his colleague had just spotted the whales and so off we went again, and yes we saw them a mother and baby whale swimming together ahhhh it was increcible. The next time I am in Puerto escondido will do this tour again and I honestly couldn't recommend this tour any more than I already have. Do it you won't regret it one bit. Thanks again Carlos!

Mind blowing experience
, Mar. 2019
The company was very caring of the arrangements, and very flexible. They called us one day before to confirm the pick-up time and location. Since we were staying a bit further from Puerto Escondido they offered picking us all they way to our accommodation for a very reasonable price. The trip was excellent. We saw three types of dolphins, turtles, and whales! We snorkeled with the dolphins, sardines, and small harmless jelly fish. The boat ride was smooth and safe. They provide Life vest if you need. We were also surprised that the trip lasted more than 3 hours. They really wanted us to have a great time and not just hurry thru the program. Finally, the price of 40 USD is very good compared to some of the prices people offer at the beach, which can go up to 100 USD. Highly recommended. Miguel, Joel, and Jasiel are great people.
