Once in a Lifetime!
, Sep 2021
Once in a lifetime experience! We were in the fence about doing this trip but it was so worth it. There is nothing like having a manta ray swim right up to you in the water! The staff was very attentive and ensured everyone on board was comfortable. The snorkeling was the highlight, but the boat ride in the ocean at night was also lovely.
Life changing experience

We really enjoyed our trip with Captain Charlie. It was educational and a lot of fun! The Manta Rays swim right up to you! 45 minutes in the water was enough for some but my group wishes we could have stayed even longer! Definitely worth it!
