So much fun to drive through town learning interesting facts then driving straight into the ocean to see underwater and experience a totally different type of sightseeing.

This tour was AWESOME!!!!! The tour leaves from the port and takes a short trip out to the boat for another short ride to the sandbar where the stingrays are located. Our guide Bert "the stingray whisperer" was very informative and did an amazing job educating us about the stingrays. This was one of the BEST excursions we have done... More

Bring your waterproof camera for this excursion. The tour leaves from the pier and shuttles you to their boat. It's a short trip out to the stingrays! The water is beautiful blue with white sand. The stingrays swim around you and the guides will help you to hold them. Bert was our tour guide he is very informational as well... More

This was by far the best excursion I have ever booked. Took a short bus ride to the boat that took us out to stingray city. The water was cold at first but got use to it very quickly. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white so you can see everything. It was kind of intimidating at... More

This tour is excellent. Very easy since the water is only chest deep. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white and soft. You can see the sting rays without any type of face mask or snorkel gear. This is a great tour for older and younger people. The staff were great in explaining the area and about... More

By far one of the best excursions I have been on! Easy access in and out of the water using the steps. Clean gear. Great guides that were entertaining and knowledgeable. Felt like we got to spend more time in the water than some of the other boats. Encouraged you to take your own pictures and would even take them... More

OMG this was so much fun, first we boarded a trolley that took us to the Marina. That in itself was kind of cool. The boat we boarded at the marina was like something I had never seen before, not your run of the mill catamaran or dive boat. The way in and out of the water on this boat... More

Bring your waterproof camera for this excursion. The tour boat takes you out far to the sandbar and pretty soon you'll see dark round masses start to surround the boat...those are the stingrays! Now the water can be pretty cold at first but once you get in, your body will adjust. The stingrays swim around you and the guides will... More
