“Awesome!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Wow, I can finally say, "I swam with sharks!' So what if they were only nurse sharks, it still counts! How cool that we had the chance to swim around with sharks and rays and be in this harmonious world together. It was so neat to just hover in the water with them. And wow, what a rush, when the chum got thrown in the water and they all rushed towards us! Cool experience!

“WOW!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Sharks and sea turtles. Sure there somewhat "domesticated", being fed regularly by fisherman and guides. But it is still very very cool to see the nurse sharks, rays and large Jacks all swarming around the boat!

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

I've never swam with the sharks or sting rays before, so it was very exciting! Jayson from Serious Adventures was a great guide! Watching him with them made me feel comfortable enough to get in the water and touch them! Thanks so much!!

“Sting Rays, Nurse Sharks”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I had never been this close to either of these animals of the sea. Being able to touch them and feel them and watch the swim by you, is exciting. Then watching your drivers handle them so easily like they are complete friends is astonishing. Really a great experience!

“Pretty wild experience”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

They bait the nurse sharks so that they swarm all around, there are rays and sometimes turtles as well. Worth the trip.
