Unforgettable Experience
, Oct 2021
Amazing! Even in choppy water the tour guides made it an unforgettable experience! Would definitely a must do.
Excellent Family Experience
, Oct 2021
Unbelievable experience. I'd recommend this Company Hands Down, perfect from start to finish. Manta Ray's cone within an inch. Crew was amazing, food and drink provided.
Great boat, great crew, great strategy
, Oct 2021
This was the best thing we did on our visit. We had no clue how great this boat and crew would be, they’re amazing. It’s critical to get on a fast boat, spend your time in the water instead of in the boat and this boat is great! But even better was the captain’s strategy. We were the last to leave and when we got to the site the other boats were leaving. We had all the mantas (20+, hard to count) to ourselves. The other boats attracted the mantas, we cashed in!
My friend the manta ray
, Oct 2021
What a magical experience!!! Simon our captain and crew where super nice and helpful, I cannot recommend this enough!!!! The mantas really get close !!! I know I was not supposed to touch them but after three tries I was able to removed a huge fishing hook out of the wing of a very big grateful Manta, she came twice after it happened and pad me in my belly, I will treasure that moment for ever!!!
Manta ray magnificence

Two thumbs up!

Great experience! Well maintained and professional operation. Captain and crew were friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. Make sure to turn right once you turn into harbor b/c it is a little difficult to find in the dark.
