The coolest thing I’ve ever done without a doubt. I would definitely recommend doing this tour, I would do it over and over. We had so much fun. It was amazing.


Our guides were knowledgeable, kind, and very attentive. They made things awesome. At the end they noticed where more plankton was and moved us there and we had a grand finale with 8 or 9 rays because of it!


Watching Manta Rays swim around us and below us was an awesome experience. The guides helped and we're friendly. The ride out there was bumpy but that's expected.


Great experience ! They were good with my kiddos too! 10/10 ! I would deff recommend this experience !


The staff are amazing from start to finish. A pod of dolphins jumped in our wake on the way out. Saw an amazing sunset. Mantas are amazing. The staff went above and beyond to have us see them. The juice and snacks provided on the way back were much appreciated.


Had a great time! Wonderful Staff, great experience! We saw at least 6 different ones while 1 of them followed us for awhile.


Dark and vast sea at first but as you arrive at the site and start joining the Manta-rays you see how amazing it is. Dolphins join our snorkeling trip. It was so much fun for the family and kids even enjoyed it.


An absolute blast! You are literally inches away from these magnificent creatures. This is a true bucket list event! The crew was awesome!


Amazing experience with a best-in-class crew! We went on the 6pm swim with manta rays. The sun was starting to set and we had a beautiful ride out to our snorkeling spot. We’re not experienced snorkelers, but the crew was able to walk us through what to do easily. We had a great experience and saw a lot of manta rays - that came right up to us!


Snacks included chips and some soda and water. We saw 14 manta rays! Crew were super fun, helpful, and attentive. Water was a bit cold so a sweater and change of swimming trunks was key!
