“A perfect day of snorkeling!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The weather was perfect. The water was perfect. The whole experience was perfect! Alfonso and his guides went out of their way to be sure that everyone was comfortable throughout the trip. It was amazing to stroke both sharks and rays. We actually snorkeled with a nine ft. shark! Our guide pointed out all kinds of interesting things for us that we might have otherwise missed including eels, turtles and coral formations. The length of the trip was just about right and we wouldn't have changed anything!

“Loves what they do”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Alphonse and the other tour guide were fantastic. I had never been snorkeling before, so I was a little nervous. They set me up with all the appropriate equipment- taught me how to use it and kept a pace so no one on the tour missed a beat. There were 10 of us snorkeling on that tour. Alphonse was the most enthusiastic guide- he knew about every single creature and made sure to teach us about all of them. You can tell how well he knows the water and the animals in it. It was as if they were just his friend he was stopping in to visit. He got a huge moray eel to come out of its home to show off a bit- the sharks and the rays flocked to him- with or without the chum. If you want a fun action packed snorkel tour- go with Lil Alphonse for sure!

“AWESOME”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Lil Alphonse took our group of 16 students and staff on a mission trip to San Pedro out on the water for an Awesome Snorkeling trip. This was a fabulous way to end our time on San Pedro. The guys were so accommodating to our group and made the students feel welcomed. They explained all the processes and procedures thoroughly before taking us out. The guides explained what we were seeing as we were in the water. We are so appreciative that the guys of Lil Alphonse took the time to make this snorkeling trip a great experience for the students.
