This is a must do if you are in Antigua! A fantastic and nervous experience with these great creatures who are wild but remarkably tame. They push and touch you looking for food which you also have the opportunity to do as well as cradle them in your arms. Also had the added bonus of seeing 'Harry' the barracuda who... More

This is a must-do trip if you have children. It is offshore, but very shallow, and the stingrays are all wild and free to come and go as they please. You are told that the rays are pretty much harmless, but one ray got a bit tetchy at being held by a guide and it spun round with the barb... More

We had a great time at stingray city. The stingrays are free to come and go, just out in the open ocean. They brush up against you as they swim by. It is a really neat feeling and experience. I would definitely recommend doing this excursion if you have the opportunity to.

We like to do at least 1 excursion when we visit a new travel destination. Considering the choices in Antigua are not the best, Stingray City is an attraction that rivals any we have ever done. We loved it. The guides were great. The experience was great. They really went out of their way to help my daughters feel more... More

This was the best $50 per person we spent all trip. I'd held stingrays before in the more sanitised environment of Discovery Cove in Orlando. This is a completely different experience - these fish are wild and in their native habitat. After a fun ride out to the reef on the motor boat it was a joy to watch these... More

Nice man take us out to the reef and the fish come swimming to get food. My friend say that the fish were big and look angry! I wait until you get into the water so they can start eating on you, my friend say. Well in the water we get some food to give the rays, that what we... More

Great fun for a couple of hours for £30. Very big gentle rays, up close and personal - and a friendly resident 5ft barracuda too!

Our first sea experience in Antigua was a fascinating up close interaction with stingrays. So many rays in the area and other fish to see in waist deep water. Family friendly. Staff were very professional and gave confidence to the visitors who doubted the safety. Experienced these graceful creatures in all their glory including feeding them by hand.

the size will amaze you and they are safe. The water is shallow so a great trip for all even those not too confident in the sea. Also great snorkeling - couldn't have asked for a better day out
