I had a great time on this activity and it was well worth the cost. The guides were helpful and quick to provide a helping hand and answer any questions. They even offered to video the manta rays for me when they saw I was having issues doing so and holding on to the platform. Many thanks!

The trip is worth every penny and I experienced very close encounters with the Mantas. I could not find the location to meet them, but if I read the directions and not the GPS I would have found it. Simon dropped his location to my phone and I was able to find it with ease. We were slightly late but the crew were very nice. Beverages and snacks were offered frequently from the staff.

There are going to be places and adventures that you will do and big companies will just go to through the motions and it would not be genuine... however, this place is beyond an experience... from the friendly staff, to seeing the night sky, this goes beyond the manta rays, each of the staff made sure everyone felt safe and catered to everyone’s comfort level! Everyone has to book these guys !! Best night of my life
