Average Product Rating: 2.0 / 5
This was the most commercial and touristy of all our trips. Big boat and lots of people. The two Manta sightings were brief and amazing but some of the "guests" did not follow instructions and should have been moved out of the water as they were spoiling it for everyone. However, the crew did not seem to want to pursue that route. There were drinks but no real snacks - just a cookie on the way home and 4.5 hours from 5pm to 9.30pm was a long time without anything substantial. I would not really recommend this trip based on our experience. There were just too many people and the crew were ok but not personal. We felt just like a number with a ticket...
