This tour was amazing! The small group size and knowledgeable guides made it all worth while. It was some of the best snorkeling I’ve done thus far and they even let us keep a conch shell once they were cleaned. Highly recommended tour if you’re in Grand Turk!
Would recommend this excursion. Mackenzie was our guide and he was lots of fun. He swam 25 feet down to retrieve a conch, cut it open and let us try the raw fish. Snorkeling on the reef was beautiful, but a bit hard for the children as the water was somewhat rough. Mackenzie made do as he used a life ring to pull the children along. The interaction with the stingrays was fun. The interaction with the Barracuda not so much. Mackenzie kept telling us that he would only bother us if we had food! Our response, aren't we the food.
This tour was excellent. There was our family of 5 another family of 4 and a couple on this tour so it certainly felt different from the large tours booked through the cruise. We were able to hold and pet a baby sting ray. Donovan (skipper) made sure we were back in time for cruise departure.
What an absolutely incredibly tour! My family of 6 has a wonderful time with Captain Donovan. He was kind, answered all of our questions, and didn't rush any portion of the tour. We ended up at 4 beautiful stops and the stingray encounter was our favorite! This was worth every penny, definitely the highlight of our cruise vacation!
We had a great time of this tour with Crystal Seas Adventures! Yudi helped us check in on the beach was very friendly and helpful. Donavan and his boat mate took good care of us on the boat. Just 4 of us on the tour, went to a couple of nice snorkel areas, water is clear and beautiful, then they went and dove for conchs, went to another island where they demonstrated how to remove the conch fish, and then they prepared a salad we ate right there, with some soda or rum punch. There we also got to see and hold sting ray. Got back to the cruise ship in time, had 1:30 all aboard. For those taking tour please note that ship time is not always same as island time, please be on time so you can head out ASAP to start the tour
Gibbs Cay Stingray and Snorkel may be the best excursion we have ever booked. This company took care of us the second we stepped off of the ship. We spent the day snorkeling, and hanging out with the rays. It was absolutely fantastic. Can't wait to go back!!!
The Best of the Best, worth every penny, my whole family greatly enjoyed every minute.
The man and woman that ran this excursion are natives to the island and did an amazing job! My 10 and 14 year old were amazed at the hands-on and beautiful things they saw ... they even ate the newly harvested conch salad two picky children!! made before their eyes. Of the four cruise excursions we did, this was their favorite and my husbands too. We only expected two hours but he went out for four, really a big bang for our buck! :-
We had an amazing day with Captain Brent! The ride out was a little rough but he was so attentive to everyone on board. My daughter had a panic attack and couldn't snorkel, but he always tried to ease her and include her in the activities. The reefs were great and saw some pretty little fish, but even with the rough waters, it was so calm underneath! The stingrays were awesome and the demonstration of how to open a conch, along with the home-made conch salsa salad was awesome! My thanks for a great day!

Amazing.. probably one of the best tours I've been on.. wasn't only supposed to be 2 hours however the captain Donovan said there wasn't enough people to fill another's tour so he combined two tours for us and made it a little over 4 hours for the tour!! We started out snorkeling where him and daedae the other tour guide got right in the water too snorkel with us and show us things we most likely wouldn't have known to look for. Then Donovan literally went into a cave to pull a baby shark out so we could all see and pet it!! We left went to a different spot to snorkel where we were given bread to feed the fish which was amazing and we saw the 7000 foot drop! We then went to dive for conch and Donovan and whoever else wanted to dive for it we got a bunch of conch. We went to shore where he showed us how to shell it and make it edible. While daedae was cleaning and shelling them, Donovan found us a stingray to swim with and feed! After swimming with the stingray we were hanging out on the boat where they had drinks including rum punch for us and Donovan was cutting up the conch and made the most delish conch salad for us, doesn't get fresher then that! Sadly we went back to our ship after lunch. We felt that they went above and beyond for us from the first second we said help to the last minute we left. I would reccomend this tour to anyone. Thanks again for such a great experience!!!
Loved this tour. The staff was friendly and informative. We had a small group on our tour. We really appreciated the personalized attention. This was our first snorkeling experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the highlight of our trip. Petting and holding the stingrays was also very enjoyable.
Lots of fun. A scenic boat ride to snorkeling site for great underwater beauty. Then on to an island for viewing/touching stingrays, soaking up sun, and a swim. Crew was awesome. Very helpful and friendly. Worth the money.
This was an awesome experience! The guides were a lot of fun. It was a small group with hands on attention. Because of the tours that were booked we also did the conch dive and had conch salad for lunch. I would have never! ever! have eaten Conch but he keep talking me into it and it was very good. the stingrays were way cool!!
Lovely tour great people. A young couple ran concession. Saw many fish. Nurse shark. Pointed out sites on shore. Well kept equipment, both boat and all snorkel.
Wonderful experience! Rum punch, snorkeling, stingrays, and an experienced guide who took very good care of us newbies!
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!
Amazing. A must do when in Grand Turks! Thanks to the Captain and his mate for a great day!
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!!
They were great...didn't nickle and dime you for extras like pictures or video, helpful, and caught conch, made conch salad fresh and gave us the shells....amazing experience
My family had a wonderful time on this trip. The beach was beautiful and our group of 6 was the only one participating in this excursion. It was an intimate experience and ours kids absolutely loved it.
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.
Great Trip, walking on the small island was wonderful, snorkeling with the stingrays was wonderful, our guides were very accommodating, and helpful.
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!
Very enjoyable-- Can we get the website adress to see the pictures that were taken on that day?
