“Stingrays Everywhere”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We signed up for this excursion on the Jewel of the Seas Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship. They took us over by a couple of shuttle vans and gave us a tour along the way. Then we all got on a couple of motor boats and headed out to the stingray area. The water was very calm and clear so you were able to see them up close. This was an amazing experience and well worth the price. They provided snorkel gear and life vests. Besides stingrays there were other types of fish and even a barracuda was spotted.Bring a water camera for best pictures! Afterwards we came back to the island and had rum punch. You are also able to buy souvenirs and a picture that they took of you holding the stingray.

“Another fantastic visit!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited Stingray City in September 2013, and had a fantastic time. Yet again there were just the 2 of us out with the guys and the weather was great. We had plenty of attention from the stingrays and held and fed them (they didn't appear star struck despite a visit from the 6 X-factor hopefuls who were in Antigua with Nicole Scherzinger!). There were loads of stingrays and plenty of fish to look at when snorkelling, and the stingrays stayed around for the whole time we were in the water. Its one of the best value trips in Antigua, and I would recommend it to anyone. We will be going back again next year as we think it is the most incredible experience and so enjoyable.

“Once in a life time experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We visited Antigua in September and booked this excursion with days left to go.

By far the best experience.

To be able to feed, hold and swim with them was incredible.

“WOW!!!!!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We heard about the stingray trip when looking at the Antigua holiday before we booked. Thought it would be fantastic to do. Easily booked when we got to our resort, trips go about 3 or 4 times a day every day. I can't swim so I was a bit nervous to say the least, I also don't like the look or feel of any fish. When we got there we had a short talk from an obvious expert in stingrays which was very useful. The water was quite shallow (and warm) and the stingrays took no coaxing, they came as soon as the boat docked. I was so nervous but put on a safety jacket and got in. The stingrays float around your legs and the only way I can explain the feel of them is like wet, warm chammios leather. Very soft and smooth. Lovely animals, even got to hold one, they are very gentle. So glad we did it, great experience.
