It was such an amazing and beautiful experience. I was able to see a manta ray, and in the blink of an eye, there were seven of them. I could safely encounter them very closely. The captain and crew were so friendly and fun that I couldn't stop smiling. Everything was perfect, from the music and complimentary suits to snorkeling equipment, noodles, and the atmosphere! I highly recommend it. I'll come back with my family within the next ten years, so stay healthy until then, Captain!
