  • Loved it! A great first time experience!

    We did the Stingray and snorkel excursion with Captain Marvin and it was great! The office really close to the cruise port. You took a short shuttle to the boat dock. We had a very intimate group of 10 people which was great. It was my first-time snorkeling and it took a bit of warming up to leave the boat and the guides were so patient and very considerate. The reef was amazing! So many fish and the corals were so pretty. The stingrays were so nice and friendly. We feed them and took photos.

    Absolutely the best experience swimming with the stingrays...ever. The crew was exceptional, and showed expert guidance, and made sure everyone was safe while in the water. The stop to dive for conch was exciting, in the crystal clear and warm water, and the conch shells were offered to the guests. The next stop to Stingray City, which is a sandbar with waste deep water where you are able to actually swim with, interact with, and feed the stingrays. The crew would bring a stingray right to you to get your picture taken, which was a hoot. The included lunch was held at a beautiful, quiet, park, which was catered in and delicious. One couldn’t ask for a better tour, a better crew, or a better memory. Thank you Captain Marvin. John & Nubia
