We went on a combo snorkeling tour/Shark Ray Alley visit and had a blast! There were SO many sharks here! No worries, they were all nurse sharks that weren't aggressive towards us at all. However, they were so large that it was very intimidating to...More

What an exhilarating, brilliant, and more importantly, humbling experience to be in the presence of these beautiful creatures! As chum was thrown from the boat, masses of large fish, massive nurse sharks and rays glided towards us, peacefully chomping (?) away at their lunch. They...More

Great fun for my school-age boys -- but fairly crowded. Expect a swarm of sharks and rays. We didn't see turtles on our visit, but fantastic nonetheless. Note that, despite the photographs shown by others, one should NOT touch the animals as it weaken their...More

Guides chum the water which attracts small schools of nurse Sharks. You can either watch from the boat or be in the water with your snorkeling gear. I was in the water and it was great. Very exciting to be that near sharks. It may...More

It isn’t as great as sting ray alley in Cayman, but it was cool to see sharks up close and personal. Seaduced guides were great at this spot. Try their tour company!

Loved being able to interact with these beautiful creatures. Our guide referred to them as the puppy dogs of the sea. Don't miss out on this amazing experience.

Your boat arrives and anchors among a crowd of others, many of whom are throwing chum into the water to attract the sharks and rays, who swarm in hopes of getting fed. You are then instructed to jump in the water and snorkel among them....More

After snorkeling in another area, they at Del Mar Amigos took us to shark/ray alley. They did put chum in the water to attract the nurse sharks, which was kind of scary as it was like a feeding frenzy. So just be careful and don't...More

You definitely want to visit Hol Chan if you're in the area. Snorkeling with the sharks, rays and turtle was something I will never forget!! Watching the marine life feed was incredible. The green turtle actually came up and swam a circle around me. You...More

This excursion was a part of a snorkeling trip. We went to the location, got in the water, and the guides threw chum to draw the nurse sharks. Many came around to devour the food! The sharks completely ignored us and swam away as soon...More

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.

You know, as a diver I struggle with that situation as well. The only way that I rationalized it in my mind is that these creatures are still in their native environment and are not in a marine park tank. Yes, it is a... More
