Excellent trip - marine park, sharks & rays, some fishing and lunch. We were able to rent a boat at the last minute but there are various tour options. Well worth it on our own as the crew were able to concentrate on showing us...More

This place is amazing! After our dive with Amigos Del Mar at Hol Chan they took us to snorkel in Shark Ray Alley. Those nurse sharks are huge and very friendly.

Anyone with a boat could take you there, but probably easier just to go on a trip. People who own boats are probably tour operators anyway... Some of the operators feed the sharks too so they are more likely to come to the... More
