Description

Visit Stingray City and snorkel with some new friends among the coral reef and blue Caribbean waters. Don't be fooled by their name—stingrays are friendly and graceful creatures.

Your day starts with a briefing on equipment and safety before boating out to Stingray City near the quaint fishing village of Seatons. Disembark from your boat and step onto the floating platform to survey the calm, crystal-clear waters around you. Your guide issues snorkel equipment and offers a quick instructional briefing before beginning the swim. Easing into the warm ocean isn't hard—it only reaches about 4 feet (1.2 m) in depth.

Your guide coaxes the people-friendly rays up to the surface so you can reach out and feel their skin or snap a photograph. If you're feeling brave, feed the rays squid with help from your guide—the stingrays lack teeth and will ingest the squid via suction. In addition to rays, you may also see crabs, lobster, shellfish, and starfish.

Return to home base for refreshing rum or fruit punch while browsing through photos of your adventure.

This is a terrific experience for both adults and children. Before I went I was a bit apprehensive that this would simply be an exercise of feeding rays that are kept in captivity, however the opposite is true. The feeding takes place on a sandbank / reef some 8 mins boatride from the meeting place on shore. The rays are not corralled at all, they simply come in from the open sea as (from previous experience) they know there will be easy food available. I acknowledge that handling the rays may seem cruel and unnatural, however the rays did not seem the least bit distressed. Rays who's wing width were in some cases over a metre are large and were plenty strong / speedy enough to look after themselves. The sandbank is covered by about four foot of water so the experience can be enjoyed by non swimmers (life jackets available if needed). Snorkels are provided - these were of good quality. The staff were very friendly/reassuring. Thoroughly recommended..

The guides were wonderful and gentle with the animals. I felt safe. The experience far exceeded my expectations.
