We were there on a private tour (just my wife and I plus the guide), and had the place to ourselves. Truly wonderful. Mantas swam up to us and played with us for a while (don't hassle them or pick them up please!).

Wasn't sure we wanted to "do the stingray thing" again, but this was a very different experience than that at Stingray City on Grand Cayman. We did Stingray City years ago when our children were young, and one daughter was absolutely terrified at the sight of dozens of stingrays approaching the boat from all sides. She climbed down into the... More

When you're done enjoying the stingray entertainment, ask your guide about the trail that leads up to a high point on this little island. It's an easy walk and the views are amazing!

Great place to see sting rays in a non captive setting! Play with them and snorkel in the pristine waters around Grand Truk.

Worth while, just a few hours but a beautiful experience, going over in a boat with an excellent guide and also doing some snorkeling at the border of the ridge.

The water was warm, the beach was soft, the stingrays were friendly like little puppies in the water. The snorkeling was decent. The captain of our ship was hot! The music was wonderful and the weather perfect. It was definitely a good time.

I was on the Carnival Victory and as part of an excursion we ended up here. It was truly amazing. Beautiful waters, secluded, sting rays (all in a controller environment). It's everything you see in pictures and movies but in reality. It's probably the most beautiful beach i've ever seen.

Saw tons of fish, and petted a shark. This was one of the best sites we ever went to. We went with White Sands tours and liked it better than the cruise tours.

If you go to Grand Turk, be sure to make your way here. The sting rays swim right up to you, and it is not over crowded.
