Stingray Encounter: Fall in love with friendly Southern Rays on this personal encounter! Stingray Beach is only a short boat or taxi ride from the pier. Stingray handlers provide a full briefing on how to safely interact with these gentle creatures. 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 it’s feeding time! The stingrays will gather around you, gently rubbing against your legs. Feel their incredibly smooth and silky skin as you rub the underside of the stingray’s wings.
Snorkeling: After a 30-minute encounter, you’ll swim with stingrays, parrot fish, starfish, crabs, and the new nurse sharks in a larger, protected area featuring an installation with more than 800 coral. After snorkeling, you’ll head to Stingray Beach’s Seaside Club, where you can relax, sunbathe, see the new macaws, or order Mexican specialties from Ray’s Sand Bar (extra charge). A free taxi takes you back to your ship or downtown for shopping.
