We had a wonderful tour of the 3 islands surrounding Isla Holbox. The guide was welcoming and extremely informative. They picked us up at the hotel and allowed us to take our time exploring the islands. I recommend VIP Holbox and will definitely use this company again!

Friendly staff but after the 2hour boat ride to the whale sharks we only got a total of 10minutes swimming with them (split into 2, 5minute swims). This was very disappointing considering the price. The ceviche was very yummy and the other beach to see the flamingos was nice. The snorkelling was good too but have seen better reefs elsewhere. I would expect to pay around $80 for this experience max.

Thank you for leaving a review.

We are glad you enjoyed the tour.

We understand the price could be high for you, but there are many costs to be covered: fuel, boats maintenance, insurance, permits, guide's salary, captain's salary, logistics...

The only way to operate and provide a good service is by charging our clients a fair price.

Such a wonderful experience! My husband and I would do it again in a heartbeat! Our guide cared so much about the whales and helped us understand so much about them!
