We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people booked on our trip so we had a lot of contact with the stingrays. We also learned a lot from the staff who were out with us - very knowledgeable and they have names for the stingrays! Although apprehensive at first, once in the water with them we were so glad that we had chosed this experience - its one we will never forget. We were amazed at their gentleness and the size of them. They are beautiful creatures and once the feeding is finished they stick around and you can swim/snorkel with them and all the other beautiful fish. Unfortunately Harry the barracuda didn't show on the day we were out there so we didn't see him! Take an underwater camera and you will get some brilliant pictures. Well worth the money.

“Best Experience”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We decided to do this excursion while visiting Antigua. We never regretted it. The weather was overcast the day we went but that was fine. We took a short boat ride to stingray city and once we got there, you could see all the stingrays swimming around. It's a bit intimidating at first but once you're in, it's smooth sailing from there. Listen to the guides as they are very knowledgeable. We took pictures holding the stingrays and it's an experience I continue to recommend to this day.

You dont just HOLD a STINGRAY you swim with them and they do TOUCH YOU. Very unique encounter, a must do at least once in your life.
