It was very special to have two amazing tour guides all to ourselves for the duration of the experience. They were so kind, so experienced, and genuinely got to know us during the 40 minute drive. They were also very honest with us and let us know what to expect when we got there - he honestly told us that it is where a lot of fishermen work and gut and scale their fish for sale and therefore it would smell like fish, he was right; he told us that we would be experiencing a fisherman there who spoke to the turtles but would yell at guests who would try to touch the turtles, but that he has a good heart and doesn't know how to communicate with people in a calm manner but he's harmless, again he was right; he told us that the fishermen there would allow pictures but the respectful thing to do before taking the pictures would be to ask them, again he was right.
The experience was wonderful and the water was so clear. We expected there to be a lot more turtles, but the turtles that we did see definitely swam right near us and were unafraid. It was a magical experience. The only thing that was a little "off" about the experience was that there was no real guidance on how to snorkel or where the best place to enter and see things would be. We kind of just were given the supplies and were told "okay go for it." NOT a bad thing, but something to be aware of if you have never snorkeled before.
The guides also told us that we could safely leave our stuff on the bus instead of paying for a locker. We definitely felt the safety in that and took them up on their offer. It was definitely safe to do this!
We went and drove by the flamingos but it was a downpour rain when we finally got around that part of the island (yes, different parts of the island could be pouring while others are bone dry). They explained that they would normally take us out to see the flamingos but wouldn't be able to with the way the weather was. Still a nice view!
All in all, we were very happy with this experience and would recommend it to ANYONE who is on the island!
