Happy to hear you had a good time. Due to sanitation precautions we do not allow guests to place their contaminated face coverings on any surface which another guest may be at risk of touching. Agreed, if you're concerned, you may like to bring a small bag to place your mask in while you are in the water. Our company strives to be sustainable and does not provide single use plastic materials.

I'm sorry to hear your leg was unexpectedly stung by something in the water and you exited the water early. If you would like to join us again I would surly confirm you were accompanied by only the best, in and out of the water. Aloha.

The manta ray night snorkel was a magical experience!!! I was blown away by the breathtaking eerie beauty of the rays soaring in the ocean, inches away at times -- and by the relative ease of the trip. Indescribably thrilling. Also thoroughly impressed by the professionalism of
