White Sand Water Sports located at the Reef Resort in East End offer a variety of excursion to keep you entertained all vacation long. Small group boutique style SCUBA diving, Two stop snorkel trips, Hobie Getaway sail snorkel safaris, jet ski wreck adventure, and snorkel tours, and our MOST popular, sunrise sting ray city trips, that also take you to a great snorkeling site. We also offer ISLAND WIDE delivery, and the best price for stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkel gear rentals. But what we are MOST excited to announce is our new toy the Jetovator. Sore 25 feet in the air, or 10 feet under water, barrel rolls, back flips! Or just relax and cruise around at a slow pace. These water jet bikes are SUPER fun, and surprisingly easy to learn. We usually have people flying within 10 minutes. If you are interested in any of our tours send us an email with your questions. We HIGHLY recommend booking in advance to guarantee spaces, especially our sunrise tour.

Fantastic snorkeling and a visit to friendly stingrays

We went on a 3 PM trip from Kaibo to Stingray City sandbar and snorkeled at a nearby reef after that. It was crowded in both places, although our group was the smallest and thus... read more

We went on their stingray trip and it was so choppy & the waves were HUGE! My teens had a hard time navigating the waves and the rays. The snorkel close by was nice! Try and pick a calm day at sea. Captain was great.

We went on a 3 PM trip from Kaibo to Stingray City sandbar and snorkeled at a nearby reef after that. It was crowded in both places, although our group was the smallest and thus we got better help from our guide and captain Chris than others coming on cattle boats. Rays were great. However, the reef was my favorite... More

After doing two dives with White Sands, I decided to get certified by them as well. They like to dive in smaller groups rather than large. So 8 people vs 12 to 14. The smaller groups are more personalized. They are great instructors and help you master the diving skills properly. Super glad I was certified by them. Very professional... More

This company is wonderful! A smaller boat, I think the max is 16. Our Sunrise Stingray Snorkel was about 12 people total. We booked on a non-cruise ship day. We had the whole area to ourselves and it was quite an experience. Our Captain was so know,edge lie and wonderful with he stingrays. The spot he took us to for... More

We did the 7 am tour. Chris was very organized and took us 15 min to arrive to the location of the sand bar. Everyone jumps off the boat and Chris hands you Squids to feed the Sting Ray. Phenomenal experience for adults and kids alike. Super safe! Then we continued to a spot on the nearby reef where you... More

My husband and I took a dive trip with White Sand. Despite several kinds of decongestants, Dramamine, and antihistimines, I was unable to equalize my ears and descend to depth. I really appreciated the absolutely kind and patient efforts of our dive master, George. When I surrendered and boarded the boat, the crew was solicitous and made every effort to... More

I had traveled once before to this destination and had booked a tour to sting ray city. Much to my surprise it was the same captain Chris. I was so glad as I had such a great time last time. He was so friendly and helpful and most of all so knowledgeable. It made us all at ease and truly... More

I definitely wasn't planning on going to Stingray City, since I thought it was very touristic and cruel for the animals. Someone we met during our vacation convinced us otherwise, so on our very last day my husband and I quickly booked a tour with White Sands. And it was the best decision ever!! :) It was amazing! I totally... More

We went to Stingray Sandbar in the past on one of the medium size boats at the standard mid morning time. It was great, but totally overrun with people. This trip I booked a 7am boat from Kaibo Yacht Club with Captain Chris at White Sands. It was a totally different experience. The boat only holds 16, so we aren't... More

Highly recommend White Sand for stingray city trip! They are one of the few that will pick up in rum point/Kaibo area. Our captain Chris was fantastic! Very friendly, knowledgeable and gave us all the time we wanted to spent at stingray city & the reef. We also enjoyed that the excursion groups are smaller.
