This was a great experience being able to swim with many stingrays. As they are fed regularly they are very tame and come up close to you. If you are able to take the early morning trip at 7.30 then you get to the area before the rest of the boats with the cruise ship passengers arrive.

As you well know...world famous stingrays city is an absolute must-do. It's often an experience of a life time. There are many tour companies that will pick you up by shuttle and take you on the tour. The creatures are mostly gentle, splash some water on you here and there when you feed them .. it's worth spending half a... More

This was our second time here but this time it was more fun. The water is gorgeous and only about waist high on this huge sandbar. While frightening at first, I got used to the adorable stingrays. The boat crew were fantastic and it was so much fun to ride the catamaran with Red Sail Excursions.

I have been with sting rays in an enclosed area so it was great to be with them in their natural environment. Watch the time of day and if there are a lot of cruise ships in town as it can get very busy. Guides bring food which bring the rays up close and personal with you. Water is not... More

This is a chance of a lifetime to interact with stingrays in their own environment. The guide was awesome, but please respect the animals. The stingrays were very large and easily weighed at least 50-100 pounds. The stingrays here are mostly tame due to the amount of feedings and people around, but don't be the idiot not to listen to...

SO Many Stingrays! A great experience, if you want something different this is the place to go! We went through Stingray Sailings, and would definitely recommend them.

Did a sand bar and snorkel trip with the family. Really is a unique experience to touch the super friendly stingrays. Water was 3-4 feet deep with a few waves.

The only chance you get to see Stingrays close up in their own environment. I loved it. Respect & enjoy them. I went with Captain Marvin. Established 1951.

I am sure many people might be scared at the idea of swimming with the stingrays. They are harmless. Hire a good tour guide, one that is familiar and respectful of the rays and go. The water is only about waist deep and you can either just stand in the water and let the rays swim by or hold one... More
