    Itinerary

    Upon arrival on the uninhabited island of Gibbs Cay, your guide and marine biologist will tell you all about the resident Stingrays and answer any questions you may have. Then you will be able to either observe the animals from the beach or watch them swim around your feet in the shallow waters. If you're feeling adventurous, don the snorkeling equipment provided for you and swim alongside these gentle creatures. Don't worry, they are very friendly and used to humans.

    Please note that this is an eco-tour and does not feature feeding, catching or touching the Stingrays.

    After your Stingray encounter, you will set off to experience more of the beautiful underwater world at a nearby reef. Besides colorful coral, you may see Parrotfish, Butterflyfish,Tangs, Damsels and Snappers during your snorkel.

    At the end of your tour you will be dropped off at White Sands Beach where your tour departed.

    Entire geoup had an exciting fun filled trip. Loved watching the stingrays in their natural habitat. Looking forward to a humpback whale experience in February.

    Hi, we do not coral the stingrays, feed or touch them. It is evident that your review is for a different company. We will ask TripAdvisor to remove your comments. Thank you.

    Humpback Dive Shack has a great website that you can check out. I looked and found they list the price as $72 per person. There isn't a child price listed. Hope this helps!
