We had a great time swimming with the nurse sharks and they rays. The animals aren’t interested in the people, just want the chum they are being fed.

Unforgettable and not to be missed. Swimming with the docile nurse sharks. The tour guides feed them of the side of the boat so there is a swarm of them. Very cool to snorkel here
