Comments Wonderful clean resort owned by an American. Friendly staff and locals. Captain was Willy who is a whale shark expert. We found whale sharks most days during surface interval or in PM. You don't dive with whale sharks, but instead the captain locates them and then several swimmers will jump off side of boat (when told) to snorkel with them. Not long before they dive, but you get a great look at them. No touch policy enforced.

Operates on schedule. We arranged for a bartender on her day off to take us 4 wheeling in the afternoon on back roads. Really saw the island.

OK for other fish. Like most of Central America it has been over fished.
