Amazing to see the stingrays in their natural habitat. Beautiful island. We didn't go around it, but have some beautiful photos and the water is amazing!

We saw a few sting rays, but there were not 100's of them. We could touch them and there were some large ones. Beautiful Beach too!

We went here with Grand Turk Diving. There were two other couples with us. One was a newly married young couple and female did not swim. The other was a father and daughter team and the daughter had never been snorkeling. The DM, Smitty, took both ladies, gave them a quick lesson in snorkeling, then grabbed one in each arm,... More

The water in Grand Turk is amazing! WE decided to do the Stingray encounter/Snorkeling tour at Gibbs Cay with Oasis boat tours. The boat ride was fun, and stingrays were amazing! Snorkeling was great as well, however keep an eye on your teenage daughters as there is at least one of the tour guides who is a HUGE pervert!!! BE... More

A trip by boat to an off shore island, Gibbs Cay, provides the opportunity to feed the sting rays by hand, have a fresh conch ceviche on the beach and snorkel in crystal clear waters. The sun on your face, the beer in your hand and calypso music blaring on the boat's stereo... is there anything better??? This is a... More

The last port of our cruise was in Grand Turk. We took a snorkel excursion with TI Adventures to Gibbs Cay and fell in love!! It was the best excursion we have ever had. The water is clear as day and the stingrays were plentiful! At one time I counted 10 rays around me. My husband and I are looking... More

There were only about 10 of us on this expedition and what a FABULOUS expedition it was thanks to Captain Julian and his crew with Oasis Aquatic Tours! When we first got off his boat (after a short boat ride to a deserted island), we were surrounded by curious but oh so gentle stingrays - some small and some quite... More

Resource is over-utilized/poorly managed leading to low species diversity and lines to see the stingrays. Operators seemed to forget these were wild animals and handled them with casual disregard.
