Willy & Edie were excellent boat tour guides and they made our island hopping trip so fun! The cenote at Yalahua is worth swimming in. Passion island was the last and best stop of tour. This boat tour was the highlight of our trip!

My partner and I had a fantastic time on the private 3-island tour, which included stops at Yalahua lagoon, Isla Pajaros, and Isla Pasion (Passion Island). Isla Pasion was especially fantastic! Our guide (Edier) and boat driver were both phenomenal. I can't say enough great things about our tour...it is a must-do private tour while visiting Holbox!

We had a great time with our guide Eddie. Swimming in Yalahau, the natural spring, was pretty cool, oh and on the way there we were very fortunate to see dolphins in the lagoon! I guess that’s fairly rare though. The birds were also fun to see. Overall we had a great experience.

We were picked up in a 4-wheeler at our hotel by our guide, Alex, and taken to the boat dock. At the dock, we boarded the beautifully painted boat and took a tour to three islands. Our guide Alex was the absolute best! He was well informed, funny and passionate about wildlife conservation. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Isla Holbox. We had such a great time and would do it again in a heartbeat.
