We went out for a snorkeling tour and had lunch near the shark pen. There were a couple of men in the pen with the shark holding it up for all too see. The shark looked really sad and unhealthy.

I can't get over the cruelty of the shark being held in the pen and being forced out of the water for selfies. Travel with compassion, use your dollars for good.

This was a stop after a snorkel trip. The 'grilled fish' was ok, but the BBQ style cooking could hide poor quality. The rice, pasta and other items provided were poor. There was a shark holding pen outside with 2 nurse sharks and people lined...More

I am not a fan of caged wild life; but I do understand that hard working people have to pay the bills. So there has to be some sort of balance. The restaurant was quite good. My husband and I had the fish fillets that...More

Gorgeous beach. I wished we would have spent more time here after I found out how great it was. We went to the turtle farm near here which I also highly recommend. Simple and cheap. Loved the turtles.

Seeing the shark in the pen was sad. It was well fed and looked healthy, but not really our thing to do, so we didn't go in. Cheap like 2-3 bucks to go in. If you want a picture then 6 bucks. A few vendors...More

They are both offensive, but I wouldn't put them in the same league. I would rather have someone swear at my dog than beat it.
