What You Can Expect
The dive lights of the vessel are safe for the manta rays, and allow better visibility for your evening dip. These creatures are extremely gentle and don’t have stingers, teeth or barbs. As you swim alongside them in the water, you’ll be able to see how truly big they are, featuring wingspans up to 15 feet (4.5 meters) wide.
After your night snorkeling, dry off and enjoy a helping of soup and a hot drink. You will return to your original departure point when the tour concludes.
Awesome experience!! Had to wait a little while in the water fro the mantas to show up, but when they did it was wonderful. We had 2 different ones swim directly under and in front of us. Our tour also had the unexpected bonus of a pod of wild dolphins showing up and swimming and jumping right next to our boat.
The Manta Ray Night Snorkel with Fairwinds was a once in a lifetime experience. Everyone should do this. There were 5 or 6 boats out there from other companies and it was obvious that ours was the best prepared and had the best equipment and crew. Two women we talked to on our trip said they had gone before with a different company and this was so much better. I recommend it. Even my husband, who is not a snorkeler, loved it!
This is one of the best things I have ever done. So cool to be this close to these majestic animals. If I was only able to do one excursion, this would be the one!
This was truely the most amazing experience we have had on our trip. I have a fear of swimming in the ocean but this was wonderful, the crew are really good and help you . We were very lucky to see half a dozen Manta Ray and yes they come close very close to you. But wow. The only down side was their video person was away . So I took my camera in cheap one got some shots - but would of loved their one . But we still would recommend them.
Best ever experience, crew were excellent, knowledgable
Awesome. Exceeded expectations. Fantastic crew and amazing sights.
This is a must do. Being within inches of these big, beautiful and graceful ocean creatures is truly a thrill. We watched two Mantas perform what looked like a ballet as they mirrored each other in the water before our faces. Captain Dave and his crew were wonderful hosts and guides - the hot soup and hot chocolate after the snorkel was a welcomed treat. I highly recommend this activity. Also, I would suggest a dose of Gravol prior to your outing if you are motion sensitive being sea sick would spoil your fun.
This was an incredible experience, but unfortunately we only saw one manta ray. Hopefully when we return we have a bit more luck.
