3 time customer of Oceanológico says "there's a reason I booked more than once!" The simplest thing I can say is that I loved snorkeling w/ Lisa @ Oceanológico so much that I've booked 3 separate sessions! Each experience was unique and different, and I had a good time every time. The first time I got to chatting w/ Lisa about snorkeling, the environment, and her business, it became immediately clear to me that she's a great guide: patient, well-informed, passionate, and dedicated. I've learned to spot many of the fish endemic to La Palma by name, which is interesting, because I didn't care that much about fish before meeting Lisa, and now I can tell you the differences between male, female, and juvenile Ornate Wrasse! My favorite so far was the young black moray. Maybe you'll get lucky and spot one, too! TL;DR -- worth it
