Am so glad that I did, but never dreamed that I would be this close to sharks. They are truly beautiful and awe-inspiring - would love to bring my kids here next time and I will take pictures from the boat.

Wasn't real impressed with this tour. Just a bunch of nurse sharks near the boat once they put bait in. You could get out in the water and swim around with them if you wanted.

Beautiful day on a great catamaran, meeting new people who were a lot of fun! The crew of Seaduction were great! They were so attentive to us. They made sure we were having a great time!

The water is shallow and clear with seagrass on the bottom. The rays skim gracefully along the bottom looking for food. The nurse sharks are shy and keep a... More

This is a very shallow place to have close encounters with nurse sharks and rays, including opportunities to touch them. Nurse sharks are a nice introduction to sharks, not nearly as scary as other varieties. The guides will feed and hold the animals so divers and snorkelers can have to chance to touch them. It's not great for diving, but... More

We went to Shark Ray Alley right after Hol Chan and it was a great experience. I've never seen so many sharks in the water at once. Nurse sharks will not hurt you as long as you are not near their food and they are beautiful creatures. There are lots of boats here but lots of sharks so you will... More

This was such a cool place!! Immediately nurse sharks and stingrays were swimming up to us! Our guides were able to hold onto both sharks and stingrays in order for us to get a better look! Definitely recommend going here! Especially with an experienced guide to get the full experience!

I never thought I'd be swimming/snorkeling with sharks, yes sharks nurse sharks tons of them. Unbelievable to be in the water with so many sharks and once you got use to it, your fear goes away quickly. An amazing experience. Glad we did!

Akin to Sting Ray City in Cayman, but so much more. The guides feed the sharks and quickly they appear. Some sharks as long as 9 feet amid other smaller ones. Our guid held a shark in his arms and we all got to rub the skin...wow!
