Super fun! Luis and his crew were awesome! They went out of their way to make sure we had a great time and delivered that. We snorkeled first then took a short boat ride to the “natural pool”. However, there were no sting Ray or sharks, just fish. And it wasn’t really a natural pool so much as the shallow end of the same water we were already snorkeling in. The drinks were bottomless and the photographer was awesome.

We got to the drop off point and then we were waiting for about half an hour before we got on our boat. The water was beautiful and snorkeling was fun but if you're not swimming by coral, you won't see as many fish. After snorkeling, that's when they let people drink. They had some half gallon sized boxed juice boxes they'd pour for people, clear and dark rum, and they had pineapple and melon available. We headed to where they had the shark and stingray encounter. It was cool seeing nurse sharks just swim underneath you but it felt kinda lackluster that you swim to the end of their entrapment and back and then you sit in another section, someone holds a stingray so you can feel it and then you go back to the boat. The whole thing probably took about 10 minutes which makes me feel the price is a higher than it should be.
Then we went to a "natural pool" but it was really just a shallow part of the water and there was a dozen other boats anchored in the same area. Every single boat was blasting their own music so it was a bit sensory overload for me but it was nice to get to talk to people from different boats. They had a photographer on board and I'm not sure how much they were charging for pictures but just be wary that they'll just tell you to pose so you have to be firm when declining.
I ended up drinking a lot more than I thought and went into the souvenir shop after. Everyone was really nice but, again, if you know you shouldn't be spending money, be firm because they'll try to sway you to buy stuff.
Overall, I'd give it an 8/10 cuz the encounter didn't make the price feel worth it and I thought they'd have more fruit available.
Not worth the trip

Snorkelling was good but swimming in a cage with sharks and stingrays was nothing short of cruelty. We were then taken to a beach with at the very least 50 boats and left to puddle around for 40 min. They advertise open bar but the only drink available was their rum punch others boats had beer and a variety of other drinks
