Star rating:

The pick-up went well, but it became relatively impersonal on site. In the end, about 40 people were let on the same boat and transported to the shark and ray tank. Posing with the animals for photos was also rather difficult for animal lovers to see, as you could tell that the animals wanted to flee rather than be petted. Otherwise there was cool staff and a relaxed party atmosphere on the boat.
