The tour was booked with Hammerhead Watersports. The adress provided by a friend, who has been there twice before.
Depends on the size of the group - the Captain decides, what boat to take. The smaller Trimaran was good enough for us 10. A little Bus picked us up at the port.
Went out for 15 minutes ride to the port of the boat, where we met Captain Crosby. A very friendly older man, with much experience about stingrays ! After a 30 minutes ride on the boat to a sandbank , far outside, we got out of the boat , and the water endet at youre hips.
Then you better walk , instead of swimming !!! You might hurt one of the stingrays with youre legs , when they are diving under you..and that could force a reaction. Everything else seems like a dream ! Crosby puts some peaces of fish in the water.. and there they are ! You should get ready for some kind of an invasion of stingrays. Between you and youre partner..between youre legs -right before youre chest.. they are everywhere ! And if you go slow..you can touch them. The captain got a hold of one - and we feeded him by hand. That sting did not even try to escape , while we where touching his rough skin on the top, and the very soft skin underneath on his bally ! Unbelieveable ! The Captain told us some things about those wonderful animals , and my wife even kissed one ! That will cause 7 years of luck.. so the Captain said ! Then we went to another place for some snorkeling . He provided the needed equipment on board.
Tip : If you have some more time - order a 3 stop tour ! Better snorkelplaces ! And : Dont forget to take some drinks with you !
Sometimes on the way back , the captain sets sail ! Sometimes not .. But always gets out the guitar and sings some songs , while riding back from an experience that you will not forget ! Because we´ve been a little group only , its 45$ per person - but its OK , cause he took time for ten people only, so the group stayed unique ! Bigger groups for snorkeling and diving might be cheaper on the big boat.
We felt very safe with him , and next time I come there with another group , I will join my new friend Captain Crosby !
