Viewing the manta ray was an amazing experience! However, I was very uncomfortable that night for a combination of factors: 1. the ocean was very choppy that night with huge swells, 2. I was not given a full size life jacket which would have made me feel much more comfortable, 3. the jump off the boat was a bit scary and added to my anxiety, and 4. there were jellyfish in the water and there was a monk seal very near the other swimmers. That said, the crew was amazing at helping me calm down and manage my fear, so that I could view the incredible manta ray! If you are very comfortable swimming in the open ocean at night, then I highly recommend this experience!!! If not, then I recommend bringing your own life jacket, and asking for a ladder into the water (the jump can be a bit unnerving). Kuddos to the crew though, they were great!

We sent our four kids to experience this adventure. The oldest two are 20 and the youngest is 11. They had a blast. Had such a great experience. They saw a lot of Manta Ray. They documented it on a go pro. We were amazed at how amazing the footage was when they showed us. Very Impressed

Simon and his crew were amazing! Was kind of scared to do this, but they were helpful, funny, kind & amazing! They made all my nerves chill & helped me have a blast! 100/100 would recommend! The manta rays were so cool & huge! One touched me on its way under the light! For anyone who thinks they might not like this or are iffy about doing it, do NOT hesitate! This is so far by far, the most amazing activity on our trip! Wish we could do it again during this trip!
