DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$ TERRIBLE SNORKELING!! They tell you it’s snorkeling and all it is is 1 shark in a fenced in closed space and 1 stingray. No fish. The winds and waves were high. Terrible weather conditions and still chose to send us out there. Several people turned back after they got in because of the rough waves. There is NO reef. No calm sea. The catamaran is not open to lay on. No open mesh area to lay on. The glass sea bottom is about 3 ft by 4 ft. They take you out to the middle of the sea. Make you swim along a rope to get to the caged in areas. Climb over a fence and swim with white caps and “snorkel”. A complete joke!!! Go elsewhere!! I’m shocked Amstar recommended this!

Not a lot of stingrays or sharks to see but still a fun trip. Don't expect more than rum, vodka, and beer or ham sandwiches for the "all inclusive part." Overall would still recommend that anyone do it. Fun for beginners or people nervous of sea life.

Dear melferz1721 We are glad that you recommend our tours. It will be wonderful that people looking to discover the wonders of the reef and marine life visit our 40,000 mt2 marine park, where they will swim with 10 sharks and 10 stingrays in each aquarium. After the snorkeling, they will enjoy the open bar and snacks which included: rum, beer, vodka, sodas, juice, water, ham & cheese sandwiches, fruits tray, cookies and coffee. Thanks a lot for coming and for sharing your thoughts with others. kind regards, Your Marinarium Excursions team

This was a great day! We took a bus ride to the boat and then after brief instructions we were in the water and snorkeling. There were not many fish to see but the ones we did see were pretty. Being in the netted area with the sting rays and nurse sharks was a little scary but the crew stays right there with you and take awesome photos while you hold the sting ray.
