Owner description: Sting ray sandbar and snorkeling on the reef with a sail boat. Small groups - 20 maximum
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Unfortunately our stingray tour was cancelled due to bad weather. We were the only couple he wasn't able to contact, but he still came to meet the ship to tell us, despite the pouring rain. He drove us in his car to the local bus depot ( pointing out places of interest on the way) so we could get a bus and go and see the turtles instead rather than waste the day on the Island.
And in response to Brett F review. When you have a tour booked and you need to tender in to shore. You need to make an effort and get up early so you get the first tender in, even if it means queuing for half an hour!

My family of 4 just went on a Sunday afternoon trip with Dexter to Stingray City. He picked us up at our Condo which was a huge convenience. His family has lived on the island for 6 generations, so he shared things about the island that we would not have known. We loved that. There were only 14 people on the catamaran. We had plenty of time with the stingrays and felt comfortable in the water. The stingrays were so amazing and gentle. Something I thought was a bonus was Dexter used our Iphone to take family pics of us with the stingrays. For free! (We didn't have to pay extra later for pictures of the trip.) We loved our experience and would do this again when we go back!

Dexter's did not disappoint. Our boat was at his max capacity (20 guests) due to the holiday, but even so, he and his mate made sure everyone on board had cold drinks (water, Gatorade, sodas), snorkeling gear, and a great time. Fed the rays squid at Stingray City, timing our visit so that the bigger boats weren't there at the same time. Our location by the reef was full of interesting fish, and we stayed long enough that everyone seemed satisfied. We had two disabled passengers and both were able to participate fully, thanks to the extra support Captain Dexter provided their families.

Dexter did a great job taking our family of 22 people in a private charter boat to sting ray city. We had several unexperienced and nervous folks that were afraid to go in the water and Dexter and his crew did a great job making the experience calm and fun for us. We would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to experience sting ray city and snorkeling.

We booked with Dexter (private charter) online, a couple months before our trip. He communicated with us about times and suggested dates to avoid large crowds.
We had an amazing experience at Stingray City, snorkeling and stopping at a great spot to see starfish. Dexter and his crew shared lots of great info about the marine life & made sure we all had a fun, relaxing time. Highlight of our trip!
