This excursion was arranged through our Carnival cruise ship. It was the best experience in swimming with the stingrays. Bert was our guide and was the most helpful, knowledgeable and nicest guy! We were able to hold, feed, kiss and touch the 'rays in very shallow waters and the crew took our photos (with our cameras). Their prices were less... More

This was the highlight of our recent Carnival cruise vacation. The best excursion we have ever been on. Would definite recommend snorkel and mask for underwater viewing. The crew let you hold the stingrays, feed them, and were very caring of these marine creatures. They also took photos of you with your own camera if requested. Would highly recommend this... More

Deluxe Stingray City Sandbar was a great excursion! There were so many people and boats out there and the amount of stingrays were spread out! Fun time feeding and playing with the stingrays!

This was a great time and an incredible adventure. The crew put everyone at ease by telling us what to do and expect. There was plenty of time in the water and interaction with these beautiful animals. Everyone got to hold, pet and kiss the rays if they wanted. The crew took pictures with our camera so could hold one... More

Me, my husband, and another couple did this excursion through Carnival. It seemed well organized and everything went smoothly. There were lots of other tour groups at the same site but the stingrays swam about plenty. My only complaint was the cold water, which someone should have done something about (sarcasm folks)! I'd definitely recommend.

The crew were fantastic getting us to the boat, giving us instruction about how to get in the water and line up, taking our photos with the Stingrays and giving us food so we could feed them.
