Experience the graceful beauty of the southern stingray, one of Grand Cayman’s most widely misunderstood marine creatures, while snorkeling in their natural habitat. It won’t take long to reach Stingray City, a collection of shallow sandbars teeming with stingrays. You will have the opportunity to interact with these magnificent creatures according to your comfort level. You may feed them, stroke their sandpaper-like skin or simply watch the stingrays glide along by flapping their sides like wings. The choice is entirely up to you. Although some people may be apprehensive about being in the water with stingrays, these creatures are actually shy and docile. Many of the same ones frequent the crystal-clear waters at Stingray City and have even been named after famous “Rays,” such as Ray Charles. Southern stingrays are fascinating creatures with flat, diamond-shaped bodies. They use electro-receptors and their heightened sense of smell to locate prey buried in the ocean floor.


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Visit a series of shallow sandbars with so many stingrays that it’s called Stingray City.

  • Feed and touch the stingrays or simply observe them from a distance.
