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

Before this snorkeling trip I was always a bit scared to go. Ernesto really made me feel comfortable by having me hold onto a ring and getting me used to the breathing . After awhile I was able to go by myself without the ring and see some beautiful blue snapper. Thank you Ernesto!

The sting rays are not enclosed and they only come in when they hear the sound of a boat as they know that food has arrived. You get into the water with them and you can stand up in the water so it is not too scary. you need to shuffle your feet so you do not step on them.... More

Brilliant way to spend a few hours in Antigua! We were picked up from long bay beach by very friendly staff. A short speedboat trip to see the stingrays! These fish are worryingly big to start with but once in the water it is a really memorable experience! Beware the rum punch on the way back though!

Our family of five, including two scared children of 12 and 15 went to stingray city. Thanks to the patience of the guides our fifteen year old daughter turned from the initially nervous - wouldn't touch a stingray- to a child pleased as punch that she held a stingray and has the photo to prove it! Chris, one of the... More

My son said this was the highlight of the trip for him. It wasn't an expensive excursion (especially as son being 4 years old was free) and it is a short walk from Verandah Resort to Long Bay for the boat to pick you up, so no transfers really. The guys who run the trip were gat fun apparently and... More
