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.

We went to Grand Turk last January (2014) and the place the kids (and also adults) love the most was Gibbs Cay. Being in GDT do not miss Gibbs Cay. The stingrays came so close in a wild beach of this paradise island.

We booked a tour to go here and see the stingrays and that was very cool bit other than the rays there is nothing else to do here but sit with the other hundreds of tourists waiting to see a ray while waiting your turn to get into the water with them. Great experience when you get to meet the... More

We did the Gibbs Cay stingray adventure and had a blast. The island and water were just breathtakingly beautiful. I was nervous to touch the sting rays at first but the guides helped to handle them and made us feel comfortable. Afterward they retrieved a conch shell from the ocean and cut it up for each person to try. Definetely... More

This was one of the cruise excursions we took. Very laid back and relaxing. An AAA+++ experience! I just wish we had more time here.

If you love Stingrays, you HAVE to go on a trip to Gibbs Cay! you'll have a delightful 20 minute boat ride along the coast and on to the Island. Once you arrive there, after your guide has thrown pieces of squid into the water, gradually one by one the rays start to arrive. It is in very shallow water,... More

My college-age daughter and I did this excursion on a Carnival cruise. To be fair, we have been to Stingray City in the Cayman Islands and this does not compare as far as magnitude of stingrays, but we liked the low key aspect of this one. There were fewer people and the waters and calm and beautiful. The guides were... More

I was on a Carnival Cruise and took an excursion to Gibbs Cay to see the stingrays. The boat ride to get there was quick and very scenic. I still can't believe how clear and blue the water is out there!! The stingrays and other fish seemed very comfortable around people, and would swim right between your legs! There were... More
