This was a highlight of our 6 snorkeling trips. There were plenty of ray and sharks and the snorkeling was not too vigorous. I definitely would add it to your list if you're in the area.

This event is really nice to be able to say you went swimming with the Sharks. Of course these are nurse sharks(not the kind that will eat you), very friendly and it was a nice experience.

I couldn't believe the number of nurse sharks and sting rays that came up to the boat. The dive folks leading our group held several so all in the group could see how they felt. A whole lot of fun!

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.
