We booked with Nativeways for our March cruise.
I've read great things about them online so we decided to go with them.
When I emailed them with questions they were very prompt in replying too.

We just cruised the first week of Feb. and booked our stingray tour with Soto's Cruises. The price was only $24, they picked us up right by the pier. The two guys that took us out were just great, very helpful with new snorkellers and made sure to find us interesting things to see (like a moray eel and conch). We were really glad that we had booked with them.

I wasn't impressed with Captain Marvin when I emailed him questions. On the other hand, Nativeways were great - I asked a bunch of questions and Sharon replied back very quickly each time. We went with Nativeways and they were fantastic!! I highly recommend them, although I've also heard many good things about Captain Marvin. I'm sure you'd be fine with eitther one. If I was able to go again, I'd use Nativeways in a minute!

I have recently booked Sotos for my 3/28 cruise. Have read many good reviews of him and @ $24 with 3 stops for 3 hours he is a good deal.

Have done the stingrays with Nativeway -- wonderful! Nativeway was great and I would go with them again in a heartbeat.

Has anybody gone with Stingray City Tours? They look like they make one extra snorkeling stop.

What about booking through the ship? I know it's usually more expensive, but I was told you get to the tenders faster when you have a tour booked through them. Will they let you off on the first tender if you book a local tour?
