Stingray Encounter

Offer Image
See stingrays up close and explore a private island on this relaxing Bahamas stingray excursion.

Bahamas Stingray Excursion

See stingrays up close on this unique Nassau excursion. During this island getaway, you will have the chance to touch Southern stingrays, which can reach four feet in diameter! This is the only place in all of Nassau where you can interact with this particular species. Don't miss out on this exclusive Nassau stingray experience.

When you arrive on the island, staff members will break travelers up into groups. Your tour guide will provide information about this species of ray, then you'll head down to the water and begin the stingray encounter. For about half an hour, a trainer will talk about stingrays and give you the opportunity to pet and feed one. You can even have a photo taken with a stingray for an additional fee (not included).

The rest of your time on the island is free time - spend it however you like. You can work on your tan, go kayaking, enjoy a cold drink or just relax. Restrooms, fresh water showers, and foot baths are provided in different areas around the island. Don't worry about getting back in a hurry, as the first departure from the island to downtown begins at 12:00 PM. The staff on the island will schedule your departure accordingly in order to ensure you are back to your ship on time.

Please Note: Cameras, cellphones, and loose items like jewelry are NOT permitted during the animal interaction portion of the tour.
