  • Take this opportunity to explore the coral reef, approximately 50 yards from the beach, and get up close with a myriad of colorful fish.  
  • During your time at Gibbs Cay, the crew will demonstrate the art of cleaning a conch, a local delicacy, and you’ll have the opportunity to explore the island or go in search of the elusive Osprey.    
  • Watch as the graceful stingrays approach the small bay, one by one.  
  • Enjoy swimming with the stingrays while the crew assists you in handling these beautiful sea creatures.
