Stocking Island is a hidden gem. Make sure to venture beyond Chat N' Chill. It is easy to explore whether on foot or by small boat. We are so glad we did.

We had an awesome time over at Stocking Island. We took a ferry from Captain CJ for $15 round trip (per person) and had a great time on the island swimming with the stingrays and relaxing in the sun!

I'd highly recommend taking the water taxi over to Stocking Island. Chat N' Chill is a blast! Take the walk/swim over to the other side of the island if you want to have the whole beach to yourself :-)

Awesome experience! Island Boy Adventures took us to Chat and Chill so we could feed the sting rays. The guys gave us fresh conch to offer the sting rays and it was perfect.

We first explored the beaches with Captain Peter from Exuma Cays Adventures. He showed us all the best spots, so when we rented a boat from Minn's later in the week we knew exactly where to stop. Highly recommend exploring first with Peter!

We had a great day here feeding and petting the sting rays and eating at Chat N Chill. The water was so beautiful and we even snorkeled with a dolphin who seemed friendly and curious. We only watched it for a short time and did...More

You have to take an excursion to see the "real" swimming pigs, and it is a full day with other stops to see thunderball grotto, iguana island and other stops. The real pigs you see advertised are about a 2 hour boat ride... More
