    What an experience!
    It’s a must if you like marine life, the stingrays are totally free to come and go as they please but choose to be around, be looked at and even touched. It is in the middle of the ocean but the water is about chest height so you do not have to be a strong swimmer unless you want to do some snokelling also. These creatures are gentle giants and it was amazing to spend time with them.

    Amazing!
    We were in a big group which was not ideal however the experience was fabulous. There were many rays which swam in between people and often touched your legs. There was an opportunity to feed them which was special and a photographer was there taking pictures which you could buy for $15 when you got back. On our visit not many fish to see. Definitely an experience to try - we loved it!

    Absolutely worth it!!
    Most Antiguans are a little grumpy and this place is no exceptions. However, the tour is absolutely worth it! We did the Southern Rays and the Giant Tortoises (90 min, $90) and absolutely loved it! The rays are bigger than in Cayman and the morning tour wasn't crowded so there was lots of time to interact with the rays. The giant tortoises are imported from the Seychelles but no less of an experience. You can feed and pet them - and the guide there was wonderful. This should among the top 3 things to do in Antigua!

Visited for the first time. Just far too busy for us to get to enjoy the experience.

On a cruise tour and imo the numbers going out to stingrays should have been halved and time cut as well to really enjoy the experience.

An amazing interaction between nature and humans, some of the rays are huge and quite un-nerving but they are gentle giants, (don’t let the Steve Irwin tragedy spoil a visit)

You get an in depth safety brief before you head out on fast boats, when you arrive you are then invited into the water (waist height) you get chance to get used to them, then if you wish you can hold them, have pictures taken or just stand there or swim with them.

Truly incredible experience at US$60 per person.

We had a great time with Dijon. They took us by boat to the sandbar where the sting rays come. The rays swim in and out of the area. We not only got to pet them but also take a photo holding one and fed it squid. They are very gentle and so soft. Dijon took care to explain how to remain calm and take care of these gentle creatures. It was a much better experience than we had in grand cayman which was also wonderful. No swimming required but they did provided snorkels and we saw lots of fish here as well. We took photos and video underwater. Very cool.

The stingrays get SUPER close but are really cool to see. You get to feed them too which is great. Definitely worth doing

10 out of 10 a great way to spend a few hours. We opted for the combo of a visit to Stingray city and had a swim with many Stingrays then a visit to A private island (Lavisham island) Where we got to meet and feed many tortoises from tiny new borns to 50+ years giant tortoises.it was a great experience made even better by our guide.
Many thanks

Open ocean on sand bar and with ranger supervision this is a great way to meet these fantastic creatures.
