The overall experience was amazing. Nice to have a tour with small group numbers (our boat had 10 people). Expect a long boat ride and come prepared for rough waters (bring gravol or some other anti-nausea meds no matter how tough you think you are). Once the boat passes Isla Mujeres the sea can get quite rough, especially in the season these tours are offered. Our boat was the first to spot where the sharks were, but within half an hour there were roughly a dozen other boats swarming the area; which initially left me feeling a little bad for the animals, like they were being corralled into a petting zoo. However, there were plenty of the sharks around and all the boats seemed to be very mindful not to encroach into the experience by having a number of snorkelers around one fish. You are led by the guide in pairs and when under the water, you don't encounter anyone but the guide, your partner and the fish. Back on the boat, they offer water, soft drinks and juice. After everyone on the boat has had their fill of swimming with the sharks, they bring you to calmer waters for a small lunch. This tour is a little on the pricy side, but for the size of the group you go out with, and the experience alone, it's well worth the money.
