The good:

The workers were very nice. Also, the kids of the owner were very nice and helpful as well. The stingrays were great. It was very neat feeding the rays! It was also neat holding them!

The bad:
We booked via cruise line and the bus drivers that drove us were not very friendly at all.
It felt like an assembly line for the busses and at stingray city. There was not adequate cover from the sun for the whole boat. The coral cut my wife up when a wage washed her into it.

Great and exciting. Had a great time. When you tell people that you swam with stingrays they look at you like you are crazy because they think that its dangerous.. These are the friendliest creatures that there can be. They are gentle and soft. It’s definitly a GREAT experience for the whole family including infants and was very well run. The attendees were very knowledgeable,curtious and funny

Stingrays are loving caring animals, and love to cuddle with others. Were glad that you have such kind words to share. Thank you for your visit

This trip is really good value for money. You are taken by boat about a quarter of a mile from the coast to a shallow sandbank where the Stingrays are waiting. The water is crystal clear and warm and the knowledgeable and experienced staff help you to get up close and personal with the Stingrays. Snorkling equipment is provided and there is access to a shallow reef for those that want to look for more marine life. On return to the visit centre we all had rum punch (strong stuff) and an opportunity to buy photographs. There is also a few stalls selling local goods. The whole trip leaves you buzzing! Not to be missed!

We visited stingray as part of the 360 trip around Antigua on the Extreme powerboat. Stingray City is a fantastic project which allows visitors to get up close and touch or view these animals. The local fishermen were struggling with the fishing trade and this project has allowed them to make a living without killing animals or damaging the environment. We took loads of great photos. Do take an under water camera or you can buy your photo from the rangers for $15 USD.
Definitely recommended.

This was a fantastic experience. Not to be missed . There was a briefing followed by a short boat ride. Once we arrived there was a platform to climb down into the water. The water was about chest height so easy to stand up in. Snorkeling equipment was provided. There was a roped off area for the people. The stingrays are free to come and go. They come for the food. There is the opportunity to feed and have a photograph taken with the stingrays. You are free to use your own waterproof camera. The stingrays are BIG and feel soft, they were not nervous of people. Also chance to look at the fish and sea cucumbers.
