“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Booked this excursion on line with Island Marketing. Very reasonably priced at about $35 per person. We first went out to the sandbar and got off the boat, the water was only about 3 feet deep. There was always plenty of these facinating fish around (probably because the guides had squid to feed them), and our guide gently picked one up, which we could then hold, and for good measure kiss the fish for 7 years good luck! After about an hour or so we got back on the boat and went out to a reef to snorkel. All the gear was supplied by the operator. Great trip well worth the money.

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The entire crew did an excellent job making sure everyone got to interact with the sting ray. Bert in particular made sure to talk to everyone, take pictures for people and give a little history. We very much enjoyed our tour. Just wish it was a little longer.

“Everyone should try this once!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What an awesome experience! Everything about it is fantastic. We went with Marineland tours. The fellow came around and took pictures of everyone with their own cameras. Nice gesture. There were drinks you could buy on the boat and the guide was so knowledgeable. By far holding and kissing these stingrays is one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life.

“Soto's Cruises--Great Tour of Stingray City & Coral Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We booked online with Soto's rather than with our cruise ship and were so glad we did. We saved a lot of money and got excellent service. When we disembarked Soto's van was ready to take us on our excursion. The staff with efficient and speedy in getting us to our destination. The guide was patient and thorough in our dealing with the stingrays and encouraged us to feed them. This was a fantastic experience and a great photo opportunity. Next we visited coral gardens for excellent snorkeling. Lastly we asked to be dropped off at Seven Mile Beach to enjoy some relaxation in the sun. We were extremely happy with our tour and would recommend Soto's Cruises unequivocally.
