Allura staff are knowledgeable and professional.I loved the history lesson from Louan and the pictures she captured were awesome. Captain Nick and Lee were great too. I prefer this experience as it is much more intimate than being crammed onto a boat with a hundred other people. there were 30 tops on the catamaran and enough room to layout on... More

We had a very pleasant morning on the Allura as we motored out to Sting Ray city. Lu and the rest of the crew were a delight and very patient with some of the passengers who were apprehensive about being in the water with the rays. On the sail back to the yacht club, we looked at the photos and... More

Of the three excursions we experienced this week, the Allura crew created the ideal afternoon for our family of four. The crew provided all the information needed to ensure our safety on the catamaran before we even left port; on the way to the sandbar the team leader spoke with us in small groups about how to respectfully interact with...

We booked this excursion through a cruise. It was absolutely awesome! The crew was Lou, Captain John and Christian and they were all wonderful. On the trip out, they all instructed us how to behave in the water so as not to startle the rays. The boat was clean as a pin and the ride out to Stingray City was... More

The ride out to Stingray City Sandbar was very relaxing and scenic, and the crew was great (super nice and friendly). Upon arrival at the sandbar, it was so crowded with boats that we literally had to wait for about 15 minutes for a boat to leave and create a spot for us to anchor. I figured that it would... More

This was the highlight of our Caribbean cruise. The crew was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Lu, Chris, and Glenn took us out to the sandbar and guided us through the process of swimming with these incredibly friendly fish. They also were eager to discuss the ecology, history, and life in the islands. They made us all feel right at home.... More

The crew from the Allura were incredible. They do a great job making you feel comfortable by providing the knowledge you need to know. They let you hold the rays as well as feed them. It was such an incredible experience I would do this again!

This excursion was not bad. The boat was really nice. It was less crowed than most other boats as well. There was plenty of space to layout on the way there and back. It took a while to drop anchor. In general Sting Ray City seems very choppy with waves. I have been there twice and both times the waves... More
