What You Can Expect

Gibbs Cay Stingray and Snorkel Adventure in Grand Turk

Snorkel in Grand Turk!

After a pickup from your cruise ship or hotel on Grand Turk, take a 15-minute ride by power catamaran to Gibbs Cay. Along the way, gaze out at sights of Grand Turk's nearby islands. Cruise through Turks and Caicos' Land and Sea National Park, and enjoy stops along the reef to dive into the warm Caribbean water, which teems with sea life. Snorkel or swim here alongside Mother Nature’s finest; butterfly fish and parrot fish are just a few of the ‘locals’ you might meet.

Stop at Gibbs Cay, a popular spot to see southern stingrays, and hit the sand to lounge in the sun and beachcomb the shores. The water here is shallow — about 2 feet (6 meters) deep — and stingrays abound. Bob in the water with your knowledgeable guide to learn about the stingrays’ habitats, breeding patterns and life alongside humans. Even small children and non-swimmers will feel safe throughout the experience.

Finally, travel back to Grand Turk and finish with a drop-off at your hotel or cruise ship.

Amazing experience! Our boat captain took us to a reef to snorkel first,he gave us bottles of food to attract the fish. Beautiful! He then took us to Gibbs Cay and got in the water,the stingrays came up to him. As he put his arms in the water they swam up for hugs. We got in one at a time for kisses from the stingray and some really Awesome pictures! It's an experience you won't forget! We can't wait to go back!

This excursion was EXCELLENT!! I would highly recommend it to everyone! We arrived in Grand Turk on a Cruise, and it was only a short 5 minute walk down the beach until we arrived at their boat. Our two tour guides were SO nice and very personable. There was about 12 people total. It was a very intimate excursion not like the one's we saw that were booked through the cruise line that had over 100 people. On our boat ride to our first stop, the guides gave us some history about the island which was very interesting! Our first stop was snorkeling at the coral reef, and we saw tons of fish, and a little shark!! It was harmless, and the guides fed it. Next we went snorkeling at the drop off. We were given water bottles with bread by the guides to feed the fish out of. When you opened the top, there must have been a hundred fish swarming you to try and eat! AND we saw Harry the Barracuda!! What an experience! Next, we went diving for conch so we could feed the stingrays at our next stop. When we arrived at Gibbs Cay, there was about 10 stingrays swimming around us. At first I was nervous, but the guides made you feel extremely safe, and the stingrays were very gentle. Each of us got to hold and kiss the stingray! Our amazing guides also took the fresh Conch, and made each of us Conch and salsa salad! It was delicious!! This excursion is one you absolutely cannot miss!! I promise you will not be disappointed!!

Our cruise ship arrived late and the boat was still waiting for us. Great service, very friendly crew and a wonderful experience. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Grand Turk. Worth every penny! They kept us up to date via email and were very professional.

We had an excursion booked but they had a problem with their boat. They work tandem with White Sands charters and tours so they took us on one of their excursions to Gibbs Cay. The owner of White Sands was awesome and we really enjoyed the excursion, our captain and crew were wonderful!!! Great experience with some great underwater video with the stingrays!
