Has anyone done this tour? We are looking at booking it for April 16.

We have swam with Stingrays in Grand Cayman and wondering if it is similar

Thanks

We did it in June and it was fun. They gave everyone a pretty long amount of time with the stingrays and the beach was really nice. They also supplied snorkel equipment if you wanted to snorkel off the beach
