My daughter passed on paying $230 to swim with manatees at Atlantis, then happened on to this experience this past week at NCL's private island in the Bahamas.

So wait, this wasn't an excursion? They were just there at the private island? Where they in the cove part or did she have to go out past the rocks?

That is awesome!
