Our family of four took the Manta Ray tour. Two of us did snorkeling, one scuba and one came along for the ride. Riding out to the dive area, we had a whale display that was almost as much fun as the dive itself. The guides were terrific and it was an overall great experience for all.

We loved swimming with the dolphins! We even saw whales, mantas and small sharks! David was a great guide and this activity was so much fun with my two children. We loved it!

We did the dolphin experience first and loved the crew so much that we did the manta dive the following night. The experience was great, but what made it best was how awesome the crew was. From Chad, Seth, David, Jeff, Jim, and Kenny, everyone was amazing and so personable. The guys were great and amazingly knowledgeable and we will... More

This was an amazing experience! A bit nervous for my first nightdive but it was great, dive master Josh was the best. We were one of the First divers in the water and only with a group of 6 divers. We had a private show of 3 mantas. It was very beautiful. We were also very happy we booked this... More

Just came back from an evening manta dive with this very friendly team, I must say I am speechless. First, on our way to Makako Bay (the mantas spot) with the boat, we were lucky enough to see a whale breaching out of the water ten times in a row: the captain kindly slowed down the boat and followed the...

The guides were very fun and helpful. The boat ride was not long which meant that we spent most of the time diving and not wasted travelling.

Very chatty and friendly staff, lots of manta knowledge. Amazing visit to Manta Village with plenty of manta action. Great for mixed groups of snorkelers and scuba divers.

Was a crowded boat with some divers and mostly snorkelers...traveled to the Sheraton on a bit of chop but the weather was warm and comfortable. Got to the sight at sunset and were in the water within 10 minutes to get acclimated. You will be in groups wth a lighted surfboard with pvc frame to hold onto and I think... More
