It’s a bad practice the way all these boats chum the waters to attract sharks... but it’s an easy snorkel and you’re all but guaranteed to see at least twenty of them. Fun for a quick dip and a photo of video.

A must if you like snorkelling and sharks! Quite shallow, about 8 to 10ft and you have to travel out by boat to get to it. Need to be confident to jump off a boat and not touch the bottom. Go early as v popular!

Easy snorkeling, not too deep, some current. Nurse sharks and rays will come next to the boat. It was a thrill to swim along a big turtle. While snorkeling you can see the sharks under the other boats. Coming early is the best time, being...More

SUNBLOCK! You're unable to really go to Shark Ray Alley without booking a tour, and we booked through Tsunami Adventures. Tsunami Adventures let me use their underwater iphone housing, and I was super happy about that since I hadn't brought a waterproof camera! The woman...More

Anyone with a boat could take you there, but probably easier just to go on a trip. People who own boats are probably tour operators anyway... Some of the operators feed the sharks too so they are more likely to come to the... More

You’re in deep water but the guide we had, had a life ring that you could hold onto. It allowed you to snorkel a little but have the security of the life ring near you.
