All was great for this unique experience. Cruise team was very helpful during the event. Manta were there. We spent a great moment in the water (45 Minutes), during the night. I highly recommend this activity

Snorkeled with family. Captain Danielle and snorkel guide Flipper. We saw over 20 manta rays and felt safe and in good hands the entire time. Would definitely suggest this excursion if you can fit into your schedule !!!
