This excursion was awesome from start to finish. Really friendly staff. They provided a good overview of the manta rays and brought us to a spot where we eventually saw 8 rays. We signed up for the 6pm event.


The information provided by Viator about trip was absolutely incorrect. Very angry about the mess up. Thank heaven the company providing the adventure came through. Guess I will use trip advisor in the future


Make sure you review your booking to make sure you are a in water participant and not just a ride along. The website was a little confusing but we were able to rectify it at check in. The night was perfect and the crew was beyond amazing! Where we initially set anchor, there weren't many Manta Rays, but we adjusted while in water and had the show of a lifetime!


Beautiful experience! Lovely crew all very happy and attentive to everyone on the boat ! We had a great show many manta rays came up to us. Just the right amount of time snorkeling with them as well!


Our guides were amazing and we had the best time! We saw so many manta rays! Such a fun experience! Highly recommend!


The crew and experience was amazing. This is the best excursion on the islands. The manta swim right up to you! The crew is very friendly and does an amazing job!


The captain & crew were very knowledgeable and professional. Safety was of their upmost importance, both for their members on board & the Manta Rays. The rays showed up quickly once the lights were turned on and in numbers! They were literally swimming within inches of you and all around. They are amazing creatures and this tour gives you a whole new perspective of what awesome really is!! We HIGHLY recommend this tour!!


The crew was very helpful and safety conscious We enjoyed the evening and would definitely do it again


This experience was outstanding! The guides are friendly & informative. The boat ride was great although if you get seasick, make sure to prepare.


We saw two manta rays float by, for a total of five seconds of manta ray... Well on the water in the freezing cold, feeling like our arms were going to drop off (and my husband and I are gym rats), for 45 minutes. On the boat ride back, two of our kids and 5 other passengers were vomiting over the rail from sea-sickness. The boat was not well cared for either. The crew was GREAT.
