OMG do not pass up this experience! This was the coolest snorkel excursion ever! Giant manta rays in front of your face! Jacob and Adam were absolutely amazing. Their boat is very nice and has comfortable seating. They were friendly and knowledgeable. We felt very safe with them. We brought our 2 kiddos (6 & 7 yrs old) and they were very accommodating with them. They even helped them get back to the boat while mommy and daddy stayed a bit longer in the water to watch the rays. They had a bunch of snacks and drinks on board and asked several times if we wanted more. They fit everyone with wet suits before getting on the boat and they provide snorkels and masks as well, but we brought our own. Everything was in good condition too. Absolutely recommend!

This was an awesome experience and so cool to do in the dark. We saw at least 6 Manta Rays and they literally are right next to you swimming! The team was personable and helpful too. Be sure to bring a jacket or sweatshirt for ride back (which is suggested in the details). I would consider this a must do activity if you enjoy the water.

We had our two grandchildren with us (ages 5 and 11). They just loved it. The manta rays swam so close to us, we were all amazed. The staff were great and kept an eye on our little one, helping her back to the boat when she was tired. Fantastic experience. The snacks helped too.
