Surround Yourself with Whale Sharks, Rays & More

You'll Get To...

  • Work with a Trainer

    Our divers are with you at all times to answer questions and ensure your safety.

  • Spend 30 Minutes in the Water

    You bring your excitement, and we'll supply everything you need during and after your swim.

  • Take Home a T-shirt

    A souvenir photo and an exclusive t-shirt will remind of this rare experience for years to come.

The manta rays are very playful and love to come over and swoop right above your head! It's also fun to go over the tunnel and up to the window and interact with the people since you have become part of the exhibit... It's such a unique experience.
