We had an amazing tour with Pelican tours yesterday. Jose the caption and Gerard our guide we're both really friendly and knew a lot about marine life. The boat was great with seats down each side so everyone gets a clear view and they don't overcrowd the boat like some of the other tours. We saw lots of dolphins swimming and jumping, flying fish, black fin tuna, a turtle, some eagle rays, pelicans and other birds. Then we went snorkelling and took in the beautiful scenery and beaches. The tour lasted over 3 hours in all. No whales seen but that's the luck of the draw this time of year. No-one saw them yesterday and we weren't left disappointed. Really good value for money and a great experience. Our two boys loved every minute of it. Thank you Jose and Gerard!

We really liked our tour with whales! It’s true that it was a little expensive but it’s almost the same price everywhere. The people are very polite and the tour guide has knowledge about the whales so he explained to us a lot of things! We had also a great time in ocean’s water!

We booked a tour at Pélican for the next day because it was the only agency opened at 4pm in the low season! The captain Jose gave us a fair price for 10 persons. He was on time in the morning and made the extra effort to go far to find the dolphins - the kids were ecstatic! We couldn’t snorkel because the water was dirty but he did ask us twice at different place if we wanted to take a dip. We also saw some rocks and tunnels but that was not so interesting. The English speaking guide he has with him didn’t say or explain much. The boat has all the necessary equipment, for kids’ security as well

The staff spoke a few other languages which I thought was awesome since there where some people from France on the boat too. My friend and I of course went out with this company ready to just enjoy a day at sea and go for a snorkel. There were alot of boats going out and they worked together to find wildlife. We were captivated by spotted dolphin, and a female grey whale and her calf. Both the baby and mom swam right under the boat so we could see them so well and sang so loud we could all hear !! Truly an experience never to be forgotten ... very special !!! We also were shown sea caves, sea turtles and had a wonderful snorkel trip. Our guide seemed very happy to be with us and provided us with tons of info about all the animals. I would definitely recommend this trip !!

The boat boarded off of the beach and we were off on our adventure!! Saw dolphins, sea turtles and caves but the best was the snorkeling in the beautiful Pacific Ocean!!
