Gibbs Cay is beautiful, the Rays swam right up, snorkeling was good and the beach is beautiful. Water is warm and clear. The tour is only 2 hours, and not really much beach time. The way they have the photo viewing/purchasing set up is completely disorganized and takes forever. The boat staff was very professional.

The grand Turk is an amazing and beautiful place. The beaches are typical photo op places. Snorkeling and diving are common due to the coral. It is also sharp on your feet, so bring aqua sox to protect feet and make your visit better.

We had a party of 4 that was on the Carnival Valor may 1 2015 and we stopped in Grand Turk for a day. We had a private charter booked with whitesands charters and Captain Donavan and his right hand man Eric. This was our last stop for the day and this little Cay was so beautiful . Both Eric... More

We took our two kids and swam with the sting rays on the guidance of an experienced tour guide. The experience was amazing ... These sting rays are in their natural habitat so no concerns about their freedom and well being. The only thing we would say is be sure to go as early in the morning as possible or... More

We took a shore excursion with the Carnival Valor to swim with the rays. The ride over to the island was breathtaking. The water was crystal clear even past depths of 25 feet. Upon arrival we went snorkeling. The guides kept us together in the water and took lots of underwater pictures. We got to see an awesome sea turtle... More

White sand and beautiful water with a limited number of tourists makes this a 5 star location for Grand Turk. There's not a lot of coral here, so don't come to do much snorkeling. The sting rays come here for the tours, but if you just want to sit on a pretty beach (isolated), this is it. You will need... More

We took a shore excursion off of our cruise ship. One of the stops was here to see the sting rays. We didn't have much time to explore the island. I did climb part way to the top of the hill to take a picture. If you do this, wear shoes because of all of the little prickers in the... More

We booked a snorkelling & stingray tour from our cruise ship and were not disappointed. The stingrays are beautiful and gentle I would recommend a visit to Gibbs Cay for everyone its a great spot. The water is crystal clear and warm.

This place was pretty cool. The stingrays just swim to the sand bar and crave affection. They gently rub up against you and allow themselves to be handled by the guides. It's a great excursion for all ages as long as you meet a height requirement.

Gibbs Cay is this small island where you can snorkel, swim, do a short hike and interact with gentle stingrays in their natural habitat. It is well worth a half-day of your vacation. Many people who come off their cruise ships go no further than the shore and have overpriced meals and drinks at Margaritaville's and think they have experienced... More
