The trip was overall a 4, based on my experience. Seeing the Manta rays was an awesome experience. We had two 8 foot long Manta Rays that came within arms length of everyone. And the duration of this was about 45 minutes. The host and his crew are very experienced and reliable. They assist people that are advanced swimmers to those who can't swim. They are prepared with snorkeling equipment and life jackets. However, I would recommend that people take seasickness medication prior to the boat ride. Because of the large waves on the bay, people may experience elevated levels of seasickness.
snorkeling in thunderstorm day is a nightmare

Captain and crews are very nice and friendly. but the weather is not good at all. My husband vomited whole way. Wave is super strong and tight. I will never come back again.
Don’t miss this excursion!

The manta ray adventure was great! We were in awe that we were able to see these beautiful creatures so close in their natural habitat. The ship and crew were great but the belle of the ball were the manta ray! Take a camera so your friends believe what you tell them!
Enjoyed the Manta Rays!
