THINGS TO BRING
We have limited space to stow gear and keep it dry. Sea Paradise operates a “shoe-less boat” so wear sandals or shoes that are easy to remove. We suggest you bring: towel, cover-up, light jacket or sweater for after you’re out of the water, and you may also bring an underwater camera just make sure the flash is turned off. Gratuity is not included in the price of the tour but tips are greatly appreciated.

IN THE WATER
Once you reach the Manta Ray Village, our staff will provide a knowledgeable and professional briefing on the manta rays.
For our snorkeling guests, our staff will prepare and guide you onto our state of the art “manta floatation device”. Here guests of all ages and skill levels can hold onto our float that rests above the majestic manta rays as they feed on the microscopic plankton that rises from the bottom of the ocean at night and is attracted to the light source attached to our float. Snorkel time is approximately 45 minutes.
For our ride along guests, you will watch the majestic manta rays as they feed on the microscopic plankton, from the comfort of our 45 foot trimaran in the World Famous Manta Ray Village.
