This is an otherworldly and amazing experience! The boat crew and captain were professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. The ride to the location was pleasant with great views of the island. During our time in the water, we had several interactions with rays with the crew sharing information about the specific ones we encountered.

We had an incredible experience. The hang loose crew was so friendly and knowledgeable. The boat ride out was smooth and enjoyable. We saw about 11 manta rays, and it was one of the coolest experiences we have ever had. They get extremely close to you, providing awesome views. We felt safe the entire time with the crew. Would highly recommend!!
