One of the best experiences, I swim with manatees for my job and this was a top of the line eco-tour! The guides were relaxed and funny while still assertive and directing of their clients. I actually loved it so much I wanted to apply!!!!!!! I do wish the tours were slightly smaller for more time with the rays but other then that 5 stars from me!

We did the starfish, stingray, and coral gardens tour via Captain Marvin’s. Our tour guides were Arthur, Keith, and TJ was the photographer. The coral gardens are absolutely beautiful and untouched since you have to take a boat out to see them. I could have easily stayed there for an hour exploring the coral and fish. I saw a variety of fish and corals, a stingray, and there was even a moray eel! Stingray city was a bit crowded but it is totally fun to watch and feed the stingrays. The guides do a great job educating you about stingrays. Starfish point was the least exciting for me but that’s only because I love to snorkel. It was great to take beautiful pictures in shallow water of the starfish.

Stingray City was very cool and unique. Crew was nice and it was fun interacting with marine animals on their own turf. Only disappointment was the boat crew did not take pictures as had been advertised. Photographer said he did "not feel like it". Would have been fun to have had pictures and we did not bring cell phones since informed company would provide pictures for sale. Otherwise was a nice boat ride and friendly, helpful crew.

The Robert and his crew were great. There were just way to many people on the sandbar. Though stingrays were swimming all around, it was a lot of waiting around to interact with the 1 stingray the handler caught (about 30 people on our boat). And, of course, if you wanted photos, you had to pay $20 per photo. The snorkeling portion of the trip was more enjoyable.
