This is simply and opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful and amazing creatures.

This was a great trip. Make sure after you see the rays that you stick with the guide for snorkeling. Thereis a small reek and he will feed the grouper, lobster and eel. Good for any level of snorkeler The only thing I would not recommend is the island safari to get there. Someone else said the speed boat trip... More

We stayed at the Verandah Resort and it was a short walk to Long Bay where the boat pulled right up to the beach and picked us up. It was about five minutes by boat to Stingray City. When we got there,they have us a quick but thorough briefing and then we were off! It was even better to get... More

The day we arrived at Stingray city was a little overcast, which was great since we had a 1pm launch time. There was a group of about 30 there and Scooby led an orientation about the rays full for facts and information about what we were about to do. It was a beautiful 8 minute boat ride out to a... More

This is a great experience for adults and children alike. On land the staff explain what to expect and how to touch and feed these creatures and do the stingray shuffle! Then you take a short speed boat trip out to a coral reef. It was a bit daunting getting in the water to start with as waters are teaming... More

This was one of the best excursions I have been on. I toured Antigua with a group of 16 and we all agreed that this was a first-class tour. As the other reviews have stated, the location is beautiful turquoise waters, the staff are super knowledgeable & friendly, and the Stingray's themselves are a blast to play with. As other... More

A fantastic attraction, amazing to get so close to the ray and have a decent amount of time with them as well chance to do some general snorkelling in a safe environment. Good facilities back at the land base and quick efficient service for photographs

Staff, especially Bernie were FRIENDLY, KNOWLEDGEABLE and GENUINELY wanted you to have a great experience. The Bus Ride and Driver were friendly and comfortable. The animals and little flea market were a nice added feature. Rum Punch was just that a PUNCH, I recommend going half punch and half alcohol free punch. Would go back in a heart beat! WELL... More
