Small Group experience at its best!
, Jan 2022
Captain Jeff and Jake were awesome. Loved the small group atmosphere. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely do again!
Spectacular Experience!
, Jan 2022
Took the tour last night with Eric as our guide. Our experience was spectacular. I did not know what to expect seeing the manta rays but they did not disappoint. Before we got in the water Eric warned us that seeing 2-3 manta rays was a good sighting and not less than 2 minutes in the water we were surrounded by 5-6 manta rays. Eric was so knowledgeable about the animals and kept informing us about different facts about the manta ray… which made the experience of staring into the dark abliss of the ocean less terrifying for me. Thank you so much Eric for all your knowledge and kindness during this trip! Great experience.
Will only choose or recommend this outfit. They are fantastic
, Jan 2022
The experience was life changing. These are such gentle animals and our guide, Eric is very passionate about the manta rays he showed us. He knows them by name and tells you about their personality. He provided a lot of information about the manta rays and made sure we knew how to treat and respect them. We had a private group of 4, all of us shared the same desire to experience being close to these amazing creatures. It still seems so surreal. Our captain had a fantastic boat that handled the waves smoothly and he cared about his passengers. This is the only outfit I will go with
Refund still missing

The tour was cancelled, this is not the problem. But we never got our money back. Cristelle called us, what was nice and promised to do the refund in the next 3 days. Now 3 weeks are gone. Please Vivator or tour guide, do the refund.

Saw 5 huge manta rays up close
, Nov 2021
Great experience. Saw 5-6 HUGE manta rays. One of them gave me a belly rub. Jacob was great. My kid couldn’t swim but he took care of him in the water. When the kids got scared of the rays after a few of them swam close, Jacob took them back to the boat allowing me to continue in peace.
Amazing experience!...
, Nov 2021
Amazing experience! Seeing the mantas up close was so cool. Once in a lifetime. Having a small group made it less stressful too.
