Great value and experience! One of the best of our trip. Teens and up. Very minimal water experience required, not physicallydemanding. Doesn't take too much time out of schedule.


This was an experience of a life time! So many beautiful Mantas swimming around us! We had a fantastic crew, that was very informative and helpful. They made us comfortable in the water so we could have a wonderful experience. It was an AMAZING experience! Would definitely do this again!!


Had great communication with staff before the trip. We got there as instructed 30 min before our trip and got fitted for our suits. Got usuful information from them of what to expect and what is best for our experience. Arrived at the manta ray spot and even before getting into the water we already could see huge manta rays. Once in the water we were able to see up to 5 huge mantas and they would get sooo up close. Over all experience was great.


We had a great time. The trip went off as described. We saw 5 manta rays. One came so close it almost touched me. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this to other people.


Horrible! Coast guard was out and there was a high surf advisory and they still took us out in rough conditions. Almost all other companies canceled except ocean encounters. Over $1000 wasted


The surf was pretty bad so the boat there and especially back was very rough many people got sick. This of course isn’t in the control of the tour. We saw about 10 mantas and they got very close. It was super cool and worth it. The reason I am rating it four is I got completely covered in tiny Clear crabs things that got in my hair and in my shirt and they bite. It was very gross and not pleasant had I known this was something that could Occur I would not have gone!


The boat crew was totally focused on safety and ensuring the guest had a great experience. The crew was so effective with getting manta rays to our boat other boats moved their customers over and linked to us to see the manta rays. The boat captain is a marine biologist and he taught us about manta rays and other sealife in the area. All crew members were very friendly and helpful.. T strongly recommend Bite Me Manat Ray tour.
