We chose to do a half day out swimming with the stingrays adventure on our Antigua trip and Stingray City was recommended by our hotel. We had such a wonderful time with this company and I would also recommend them. On arrival you’re briefed comprehensively on safety and stingray protocol and then whisked off on a short boat ride to a shallow reef with an army of stingrays swimming towards you. And, if you hold out your arms, incredibly they swim into them and will lie there quite happily. They are extremely attention seeking and will literally barge into you for attention. And, although gentle, they are powerful and several times I was knocked off balance a little by an inquisitive one. Swimming with these large creatures is an extremely unique experience and one you will remember long after you return home. When you are finished being amused by the stingrays, there is some great snorkeling and a nice coral reef. On return to the shore there are showers and changing rooms if required, photos available for purchase, and, in true Antiguan style, you are handed a cold rum punch.
