Gibbs Cay and Stingray Encounter

We invite you to come with us on this Grand Turk excursion and explore the quaint uninhabited private island of Gibbs Cay, located a short boat ride away at the southeast tip of the Island.

At Gibbs Cay you will get to relax on the beautiful white sandy beach surrounding the secluded island. If you are feeling adventurous you can also hike around to the top of the island, and explore nature at its best as you bask in the spectacular views looking out over the vast Atlantic ocean.

You will also get to experience a unique Stingray encounter on your Grand Turk excursion, as your experienced guides teach you how to interact with these majestic and graceful creatures face to face. The rays frequent the shallow water just off the beach, so you will get to pet and swim amongst them.

There is complimentary bottled water on board. The boat does not have a restroom. Guests must be able to jump from the boat, and climb back into the boat via the boat's ladder.

This excursion was excellent. We left on time and had such a fun experience holding and interacting with the stingrays. The travel by boat to the Cay was nice and both captains made it safe and enjoyable. They kept our belongings dry while we swam in the water and we had a bottle of water on the way back.

Beautiful island, the water is unbelievable, turquoise and clear. The stingray encounter was the experience of a lifetime, we actually got to swim with them, admire their beauty and touch them, not to mention the amount of pictures we got to take!!! This was by far the best tour we had during outlr trip to Turks and Caicos.

5 StarsBest day of our cruise!April 10, 2019

Reviewer: Kim A
My family had our favorite day of the whole trip on this excursion. We were able to go snorkeling on two different reefs and saw tons of fish including a giant barracuda. We then went to Gibbs Cay and were on the most gorgeous beach without a lot of other people. The guides were fantastic and picked up the sting ray so we could hold it and take pictures and we could swim with them. We have amazing pictures and it was great for my children too, ages 7 and 11. We were so happy to have a smaller group with this tour company instead of the big group excursion offered by the cruise ship.
