What you can expect

Stingray Beach is only a 10-minute taxi ride from the main square. Stingray handlers provide a full briefing on how to safely interact with these gentle creatures, which is followed by two main activities; the Encounter and the Snorkelling.

Standing in the shallow waters of the Encounter area you will spot dozens of dark shapes gliding along the sea floor. It’s a group of Southern Stingrays, who know its feeding time! The stingrays gather around you, gently rubbing up against your legs like hungry kittens.

The stingray handlers show you how to safely hold the food as the toothless rays suck down the herring, mashing it between two cartilage plates. Feel their incredibly smooth and silky skin as you rub the underside of the stingray’s wings.

After a 30-minute Encounter it’s on to Snorkelling in a larger protected section of Stingray Beach, where you’ll swim with parrot fish, starfish, crabs, and a lot of tropical fishes, see a new 800 coral reef installation: 10 Artificial Marine Habitats study done in collaboration with NOAA, et al. Also, check out the water trampoline, a favourite of kids and adults alike.

Next, dry yourself off and head for Stingray Beach’s Seaside Club, where you can relax, sunbathe, see our New Macaws, or order Mexican specialities from Ray’s Sand Bar (at extra charge).

This thrilling Everybody Loves Rays! is an exciting way to add fun ashore to your fun afloat.
