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.

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.

We loved the opportunity to be able to swim with and handle the stingrays. Our 10 year old granddaughter was in heaven. After a short boat ride we came to a small island where we were given instructions on how to shuffle along the sand and then were treated to swim with these majestic animals. Our guide really tried hard to give us a great experience. It was wonderful.

I would go on this again. Our guide was awesome! The sting rays swim right up to the guides. They love being cradled — it’s like a massage according to our guide. I was hesitant at first but our guide helped me cradle the sting ray. We took tons of pics in our group complete with getting a back massage with one and a kiss!

It was a great time. Loved seeing the sting rays and getting up so close to them. The tour guides were excellent. Very friendly and informative. I would highly recommend this excursion to others.
