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!
Adam (the smart looking Jesus) and the crew were great. Follow instructions and you will enjoy your experience. They do have a information session before you dive, listen to the instructions and ask questions. Enjoy the dive, and soak in the experience as it is out of the world. They are gentle giants so keep your distance and have fun. And submit your review after the experience so more people can dive and enjoy with Adam and his crew.
This app is a must if you want to see the island with the eyes and knowledge of a local. We were able to see so many things I'm sure we wouldn't know about if we just tried to figure it out on our own. The only difficulties we had were some of the hikes not being marked well enough. The app gives instructions but its not always clear (was that the fork back there?)
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.
There’s not many words to describe this adventure..... This was a privilege and breathtaking at each turn!! The guide was awesome, knowledgeable, and you knew that Mark cared about the adventure he was taking you on. Must experience.
