Talked about doing this trip for a year, finally built up courage and would do it again in a heartbeat! Fabulous time. It was so cool! You can’t imagine what it is like until you do it. The best part of our trip!

We had an amazing time swimming with the mantas! We got amazing footage of them doing flips, and the guys that took us out made sure we had a great time! Highly, highly recommended!
