This is by far the best way to see the manta rays, especially if you're afraid of getting in the water with them as the lights are right under the outrigger so they come so close to the canoe which gives you fantastic views of...More

Bullet and Hanna were great guides. This was a perfect choice because one of us wanted in the water and one of us did not. These exquisite gentle giants cruise right in. At first you think you will swallow your snorkel, then you just enjoy...More

Highly recommend. We took our 6 and 8 year old. They didn't get out of he cable but you could still see the mantas. Something they will remember for a lifetime I hope. Staff were incredibly patient and friendly.

Holly and Keenan were awesome. Both were very knowledgeable and made you feel at ease during out snorkling trip.. The setup on the canoe was perfect for watching the mantas come within inches of your body and face. Highly recommended and very professional.

This trip on the canoe was amazing. For one thing, you are so close to the water you can actually stay in the boat and have a great experience watching the mantas without getting in. If you are prone to sea sickness I highly recommend...More
