We went snorkeling first and enjoyed the reef area. After we did that our tour guide took us to shark ray alley. It was wild swimming with the sharks and rays. She's your heart beat fast! Memorable experience.

Definitely one of the most crazy things I've done and also crossed that off my bucket list. The most beautiful water I've ever seen.

Is there a weight limit for a snorkeler? the cruise excursion has a weight limit if 275 lbs per person.

That would be totally up to whoever is running the boat trip out to the marine park. My guess is that they'd want to know what kind of shape the person was in and how strong a swimmer they are.
