We got there by Royal Caribbean. It’s a short walk from the pier to Captain Marvin’s office . If you want a more up close and personal experience I highly recommend going with Captain Morgan. Your boat won’t be loaded with a huge crowd like...More

A short boat ride out to the sandbar where hundreds embark at a time to mingle and feed the friendly stingrays which swim around your legs. The coolest experience that I've personally done over the past 20 years. Great for the kids too.

Even for an experience diver like me it is always great to bring people to Stingray City and interact with the stingrays. Kids are thrilled and the stingrays are so tamed and friendly. There are many operators in the island that will take you to...More

You have to take a boat. Pretty sure you can only go to the sandbar by tour. Pick a small tour as it is more personal and in morning so not so many other boats are around.
