As soon as your boat pulls up, the sharks will come! The feeding frenzy begins and you can jump in and watch (from a safe distance). As soon as the chum is gone, so are the sharks. But there are fish, stingrays and we saw...More

The sharks follow the sound of the motor by the tens. Almost like cattle to a hay bale. Once the chumming starts they are everywhere and it is an outstanding experience to swim with them.

I cannot recommend this more. Go through Raggamuffin Tours and snorkel this place. So amazing to see all the rays, nurse sharks and turtles.

Swimming with the nurse sharks and the rays was a lot of fun. They were everywhere! Super fun experience. We went with Suya tours & I highly recommend them.

It's amazing to be in the water with the beautiful sharks and rays! Try to go at an off peak time to be able to appreciate it without a ton of people. You will not regret your time in the water here!

It’s a bad practice the way all these boats chum the waters to attract sharks... but it’s an easy snorkel and you’re all but guaranteed to see at least twenty of them. Fun for a quick dip and a photo of video.

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

You’re in deep water but the guide we had, had a life ring that you could hold onto. It allowed you to snorkel a little but have the security of the life ring near you.
