As perfect as any snorkeling trip could possibly be. The water clarity allows one to fully explore and appreciate the natural beauty of the coral garden. Sam, our guide, was the consumate professional. He was engaging, fun and totally aware of each of our fellow tour guest's situation while in the water.

Sam was quite the guide. In an open boat, 12 passengers went first to a location beyond the reef to swim with the sharks.The sea was quite rough, so only the hardy members of the excursion got in the water. Sharks were plentiful. From there we went to a location where we all got in the water with the sting rays. They were also plentiful and attracted to our boat driver and all of us. Finally, we went to the coral garden for snorkeling. The currents were quite strong and the snorkelers needed to pay attention to where the boat was so as not to drift off. We were there on a cloudy day, so did not really get the full benefit of what was there to see but still worth the trip. All in all a very wonderful day full of new experiences.

This is absolutely amazing, the tour has 3 stops.
1st is on a Coral packed with fishes, you can even find Nemo.
2ns is feeding stingrays, they are docile, huge and they do love humans.
3rd is the Sharks, this is a life experience, we were swimming in a sea with 20+ sharks, from 1 to 2,5 meters long, this is a life's experience, I'd advise everyone to to this.
Not to mention the guide was amazing and playing local songs on his ukulele all along the way.

This is probably my favorite excursion to date. We made three stops, all were different, and enthralling. We got lotsa pictures of Manta's and Sharks, and felt very safe. While the price you offer beats the pants off of the cruise ship prices, the real value is how nice and friendly your tour operators. Mahalo (as they say in Hawaii). Frank Honolulu.......

Awesome experience! Just as advertised, we snorkeled in a shallow bay (30ft depth), spend another 30 minutes watching and touching the rays as the tour guide directed them around us with bait fish, and spent another 30 minutes snorkeling in reef shark infested waters outside of the reef. We were lucky enough to see a dolphins as well as a lemon shark. Weather wasn't the best, but we had a great time. They also brought along a professional photographer so you could spend more time taking in the sights and less time worried about pictures

Excellent trip. Went to the same places that Oceania's tour went for half the price.

Outstanding, once in a lifetime experience. The guys, Ty and Leroy, were excellent guides and even played ukelele while we swam with the sharks and rays. Our afternoon trip was made even more enjoyable by the fact that we were the only couple on the boat, making for a private trip with our own personalized guides.

This was an amazing tour. The snorkelling was great and swimming with the sharks is something I'll never forget. The only downside was the tour was cut a bit short (it didn't go the full three hours) and I would have liked to have spent even more time in the water! Also, some people on the boat had purchased their tickets much cheaper by just buying them at the dock. But that said, we were glad we were already organised through Viator so we didn't have to stress about finding a decent tour.

The entire experience was great. We were with 3 other couples and our tour guide was great. We all had such a fun experience and saw a lot of awesome sites! The sharks were definitely the best part. The only downside was that it said snorkel gear was included, but this did not include flippers. Great overall experience!

Excellent trip. Met at the dock a little late and that had us worried, but this was a great day out. Met the Rays and the Sharks, and had a great time snorkeling with them in the lagoon, and also in the deep outside the reef.

The weather was horrible and we were the ONLY boat out. Everyone questioned the operators judgement in continuing the tour in light of 4 to 6 ft waves at the shark feeding site. One person was terrified and in tears, another was launched in the air and fell to the boat floor. Good tour but the operator should have at least asked if we minded being rescheduled. Trust me no one would have minded.

I was really excited about this tour because I love close interaction with animals. I don't have a lot of fear- I've cuddled tigers and ridden elephants and been face to face with cobras. The snorkeling with the rays and the fish was amazing. The snorkeling with the black tip fin sharks was wonderful. AND THEN LEMON SHARKS SHOWED UP. None of us tourists knew any better and continued to swim among the lemon sharks while they were feeding on the bait the guide had brought for the black tip fin sharks. Turns out while lemon sharks are fairly docile when you maintain a good distance it's not such a great idea to get up close and personal while they are feeding. I was bitten. And what did our guide do? He laughed. He laughed! 300 in medical bills later and a bitemarked foot and I didn't think it was so funny. The guide showed an incredible lack of responsibility - any marine animal expert will tell you that you shouldn't be close to lemon sharks while they are feeding. An experienced guide like ours should know that.

No explanations, only 2,5 h duration of tour, no circle island at the end with the boat, no outrigger boat.
