Eduardo and Fernado ! These "kids" know their rays. They are living encyclopedias ! We stopped there on our cruise and only had the day. We chose Stingray Beach for the marine nature. Great find! The first half starts with up close interaction with the rays. You hold them, kiss them and feed them ! Great for kids. I had mine ( age 9 and 11 ) and they enjoyed it so much.
Second half was "swimming" with the rays. You get all the snorkel gear ( vest, mask and fins ) and can swim down ~ 20 feet and hang with them. You also see many other fish. I could have stayed there all afternoon!
They even have a trampoline in the water when you are done. The kids loved this as well. Wife and I sat and watched them tire out as we enjoyed a drink. They will let you stay as long as you want! You can have lunch and drinks at the bar. You can even get a massage outdoors! Restrooms and shower available.
Trusted lockers.
They charge you for the photos ( reasonably priced ).
Will certainly return.

We did the stingray encounter in late June. The staff was very knowledgable and understanding if you were a little hesitant with stingrays. This was our first time doing something like this and I would love to do it again. We were able to feed, hold, and even kiss the stingrays. There were tons of them! They are clipped so they are not dangerous in any way.

The beach area was beautiful, too! The pictures are for purchase and a little pricey but it's a great way to capture the experience.

We don't snorkel and were hesitant about paying $64 for a half hour excursion. They were happy to give us a discounted rate of $42 to not snorkel. It was totally worth it. Those in our group that did snorkel said it was amazing!

We had a very nice time swimming with the stingrays. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Our kids enjoyed playing on their water trampoline. The only disappointment was with the snack bar. Eat before or after you go, they only serve beverages.

Not even close to Grand Cayman where they come out of 4000 ft water to get a meal, the show the the workers put on or good where they pick up the rays and make them spit.

Very friendly and informative. Gave a lot of information about stingrays and small groups gave you more time with them. They really spend a lot of time educating and you can tell they care about each one of the sting rays. At the end they even let you hold the iguanas and take pictures. Great little place.
