Everything ran a little behind schedule. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The excursion is setup for swimmers of all levels. The less experienced swimmers went straight from the boat to the in-water enclosure where the rays and sharks were kept, swimming/pulling themselves along a guide rope. The more experienced swimmers went for an open water swim, mostly designed to buy time for the others to get to the enclosure first. If I had it to do again, I would have said I was a weaker swimmer and then be able to go straight to the enclosure.

Had a fabulous time on the Marinarium excursion! Got to enjoy the water with attentive staff, snorkeling in the open water a bit as well as entering the Marinarium to see the sharks and stingrays. Loved getting to interact with the stingray! Had a great time also during the lagoon swim - staff had a great time with us and made sure everyone had everything they needed. We were a family of adults, but saw families with very young children on the boat and they seemed to have a great time too. I was too busy enjoying myself to take many photos, but it was a great way to spend a very hot day!

The excursion was very good. The workers on the trip were very friendly and most helpful. This was our first snorkelng adventure. I feel I am a very swimmer but getting off the boat in the middle of the ocean freaked me out really bad. I came back on the boat to calm down and they were very attentive on helping me out so that I would feel more comfortable getting back into the water. I thought that there would be more nurse sharks and stingrays in the tanks than there was. So that was the only disappointment for me. But the different colorful fish was amazing!!!!
