My sons (22 and 17) had a blast and got to experience so many cool things in this one outing. - caught lunch fishing, snorkeling a small shipwreck, a trip to Sandy Cay to see and snorkel with stingrays, lemon sharks and black tip sharks. They talked about this for days after. Keith Cooper of West End Ecology Tours is one of a kind. I'm so glad I chose this activity for our family.

This tour is perfect for all ages. Keith took out 11 of us and all of us loved the tour. He is very good with the kids and very knowledgeable about the stingrays. Highly recommend!

We had an excellent adventure with Keith Cooper. He is a great guide that shares his knowledge and experience dealing with stingrays and wildlife in the reef. My youngest child was fearful of the stingrays but watching Keith feeding and handling the stingrays gave her a sense of security and ended loving the experience altogether. We want to support Keith efforts to get Sandy Cay area declared as a National Park.

My husband and I went with our 13 y/o and 5 y/o. We had an AMAZING time!!! This was something both age kids really enjoyed. For the little one, the majority of the activities were right off the beach so when he got nervous he could take a break on the shore and come back in at his convenience. For the bigger kid, such a cool experience so close to shore! The stingrays were amazing and captain Keith is truly amazing with them- safety is his #1 priority (followed quickly by us having a great time!!). We were joined by a handful of little lemon sharks, all little guys that were not a threat but it was super cool for the kids to be able to swim with sharks (and me since I am terrified). The shipwreck snorkel tour was cool, TONS of fish, but very contained (I am used to snorkeling spread out reefs). It was, again, perfect for the kids. My oldest could dive down to check out the fish and it was perfect for my 5 yr old's first snorkel experience. Captain Keith provided photos of the whole day, and truly loves what he does. He was AMAZING to interact with and really wanted to make sure we all had fun and was not trying to simply get paid and move on to the next. We highly recommend this to everyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience!

My daughter and I had an awesome time with Captain Keith. From the booking up to the end he was so professional and a pleasure to hang out with for the day. He picked us up at the hotel and took us to the boat. We started out with a pleasant 30 minute ride to the island and reef. We did some great fishing for a few hours. My daughter even caught a small fish! Then we headed to the island where, right away, we saw a shark! Then Keith got in the water and the giant sting rays started showing up! It was amazing to see them so docile and taking fish right from his hand. After some great instruction we were able to join in the water. My daughter was a little scared and hesitant at first but Keith was able to calm her and she fed the sting ray right from her hand. The whole trip was so much fun. I highly recommend if you visit Freeport, to be sure to book an experience immediately!
