We booked this tour after reading previous reviews which were all positive. This one is not! The tour was scheduled to leave at 9:15am. We didn’t leave until closer to 10am due to waiting on buses with more guests. The water was really choppy when we got to Stingray City. After 20 minutes of trying to park the boat, hitting 2 boats in the process and then having people get in unsafe waters, I was extremely disappointed. We went to the snorkel location, at which point so many people were feeling seasick, that the majority of the guests didn’t even snorkel. Including myself and my children. Our saving grace was the starfish beach, but due to the waste of time in the beginning of the trip, we were only there for a short time. I would not recommend this tour group. The captain and crew were oblivious to the safety of the guests on board.
A great experience swimming with the stingrays! The staff was very helpful! Starfish beach was awesome too!
Awesome experience !!! The guide (Vincent) and Captain were very friendly and helpful. The Stingray tour was out of the world.
We were met at the cruise terminal and driven to the marina to board the boat. The journey out to the reef took about 30 minutes but was very pleasant. Once there we were in the water and our guide took us carefully through the handling of the stingrays, especially tips for their protection. There were lots of young and what appeaed to be adult rays. Amazing experience. The only tiny criticism was that we were only offer the masks at the snorkel site, not with the rays - I could have asked if I'd thought of it at the time.
We then moved about 200 yards to the reef for snorkeling. There's an abundance of coral but it's not colourful like in Australia. The fish were gorgeous colours.
Final stop was the starfish point, Again extra care was taken to advise us on handling the starfish for their pretection, something not followed by other groups where a mother twice removed one from the water to show her child.
The journey back was very relaxing.
Nice excursion, we enjoyed all three stops. There were lots of people at Stingray City, but it was fun anyway.
