This was an amazing experience. We loved swimming with the sharks and stingrays. We did an excursion through Carnival Cruise Lines. I wish I could remember the name of the tour operators who took us, but Kim was one of the main guides. What I...More

Ok, I thought we'd see a few sharks swimming nearby like a lot of "shark" places... but Holy Crap! By the time the boat stopped there with at least 30 of them fighting to be closest to the boat! Girlfriend said, "I'm not getting in...More

In the past the tour guide would get a shark and let you hold it for a really cool photo opportunity but not anymore. We came here twice with different guides and both said they dont allow that anymore. Now what you get is a...More

Great Experience, the minute we stopped the Catamaran there were nurse sharks everywhere. We jumped in and swam with them, truly once in a lifetime trip! A MUST DO!!!

This event is really nice to be able to say you went swimming with the Sharks. Of course these are nurse sharks(not the kind that will eat you), very friendly and it was a nice experience.

I couldn't believe the number of nurse sharks and sting rays that came up to the boat. The dive folks leading our group held several so all in the group could see how they felt. A whole lot of fun!

We visited Shark Ray Alley as part of a snorkel day trip with Action Divers. Our guide, Chocolate, brought us to Shark Ray Alley first as a first snorkel stop from San Pedro. Chocolate told us that the area is protected so that is why...More

You will see sharks and rays. And maybe a turtle! Spending more than 15-20 minutes here would take away from time better spent elsewhere in Hol Chan or along the reef, but you shouldn’t miss it! We had a great time with Eddie and Giovanni...More

Anyone with a boat could take you there, but probably easier just to go on a trip. People who own boats are probably tour operators anyway... Some of the operators feed the sharks too so they are more likely to come to the... More

You’re in deep water but the guide we had, had a life ring that you could hold onto. It allowed you to snorkel a little but have the security of the life ring near you.
