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.

Captain Tim with Crystal Sea Adventures was great and allowed me and my family to take as much time as we wanted swimming with the sting rays and snorkeling. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever been to. I would highly recommend Gibbs Cay to anyone traveling to Grand Turk.

We did this as part of a Chukka Tour, and we had a positively great time! Our tour guides on our boat were great, and they took us snorkeling as well as out to feed the sting rays. They took care of everything we needed, and looked after the safety of everyone in the water. Tip: If you want to... More

My husband and I just returned from a cruise aboard Carnival Freedom and had booked this excursion through Carnival for the Gibbs Cay Snorkel and Stingray tour. It was ran by Chukka Excursions in Grand Turk. You easily checked in for this excursion right at the end of the pier when you depart the ship. Once everyone has checked in,... More

We took a private charter to Gibbs for some stingray time. It was beautiful, water was perfect, and the stingrays and fish made for great snorkel Adventures! Don't miss Gibbs Cay if you come to Grand Turk.

Booked this through Carnival. Family had a blast. The stingrays came right up to you. The guides were very informative and helped us get great pictures. Also, the snorkeling was great. My wife did this for the first time and loved every minute of it. Highly recommend this tour.
