Sting Ray City was amazing. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and talked with us about the sting rays and how to handle them. Absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I booked this tour after a recommendation from the Marriott concierge. Lorenzo arrived at the front of the hotel on time and drove us along with a few other guests to the boat. Our group consisted of 22 guests and 3 crew memebers. Our guides were Davide and Daniela and they were very informative and friendly. Davide gave us the boat rules and then an interesting history lesson on the island and also gave us the island "gossip" and showed us where Sylvester Stalone's vacation home was on the island. He gave instrictions on all we needed to know about the stingrays and feeding and interacting with them. He and Daniela answered all of our question and then some. Lorenzo asked if anyone wanted to drive the boat and there were a few younger kids that were willing.At first, my hubsand and I were hesitant to pet the stingrays, but Davide ensured us that the stingrays had their barbs clipped and were unable to sting. Daniela and Davide made sure everyone had a chance to feed, pet and kiss the stingrays as much as they wanted while they took photos that were later uploaded to facebook for us to download for free! After we left SRC we went a little further to where we would snorkel. The snorkeling was fun, despite the rough waves. Daniela made sure that the fish and eels interacted with us by having a small bottle of food to attract them and draw them out from the coral. Davide and Daniela were exceptionally knowledgable about the sea creatures (especially Frisbee -a stringray without a tail, and Jenny- an eel). There was plenty of sodas and water and on the ride back we all had pizza. Make sure you bring sunscreen and a towel. I would recommend paying with cash as it is quicker, but they also accept credit/debit cards. We had a fantastic time with fantastic people! We definitely recommend this to people!

We had so much fun yesterday on our trip to Sting Ray City. Lorenzo picked us up at our hotel and brought us to his boat. David was his first mate and he was friendly and informative. We had less than 20 on the boat (he won't overbook like some of the boats do). We got great service and David showed us so much once we got into the water at our first stop. In SRC we all got to hold a sting ray and they took photos and placed them on Facebook for all of us to download for free! There were no up charges and the $60 per person included pizza, water and soft drinks. I would definitely book his catamaran again! Small groups, great service, nice people. We saw other large boats with lots of people but the smaller boat with fewer people made for a great excursion.

We'd do it again for sure!

Booked the afternoon Stingray City tour with "the Italians", as they're known on the island. Service was impeccable, valet pickup on time. Captain Lorenzo and the crew Davide and Paulo were all very entertaining and very knowledgeable. Davide and Paulo went out of their way to make sure everyone had a chance to feed the stingrays, hold, and kiss them. After the stingrays, we had the ability to snorker on a shallow reef. Davide displayed his uncanny free diving skills and his interaction with Jenny (the mooray eel) was priceless. The sail back combined with the pizza was a nice touch. I would highly recommend them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Stingray City experience with Sun Rays Tours. The crew was fantastic. All of them friendly and explained everything that we needed to know. I loved learning about the stingrays and getting to swim with them. I highly recommend this group.
