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

An excursion with Chukka to white sands and warm blue seas. Snorkled and swam with Rays. Fabulous - I'm smiling with the memories:) Take an underwater camera the water is so clear. The company will take your photo but costs around $10 and you wait ages in a queue to view the computer screen on shore.

Upon traveling to the private island of Gibb's Cay, we got to hold the sting rays, get a "sting ray massage", and even kiss his tail for 7 years of good blessings. Our guides, Cap'n Gary and O'Brien, made us feel very safe with the rays, and our group was small enough (5 other people) that we got enough time... More

We went on an excursion booked through our cruise and it was the high spot of our holiday. The company was Chukka and they were amazing. I am not a good swimmer so one of the staff stayed with me a lot of the time and by holding on a rubber ring I was able to enjoy a bit of... More

We were collected by boat and taken the 20 boat ride to gibbs cay.... More

We booked our excursion through our cruise ship (Royal Princess). Our sting ray swim was awesome and our crew to helpful in letting us pet the rays. The water was crystal clear and the small island was beautiful. From there we went to the other end of the island for snorkeling. The whole adventure was wonderful.

We took the Gibbs Cay Reef and Rays tour while visiting Grand Turk from the Carnival Sunshine. The excursion was really great. The staff did an excellent job of helping get everyone into their gear, and into the water. They also take pictures of the group, and sell them for VERY reasonable prices. The gear that they used was in... More
