Wade into the shallow water with the friendly rays, so used to human interaction that you can pet, feed and hold them during an interactive 30-minute session.

Snorkel gear, lunch and drinks are available for purchase (own expense). Round-trip transportation from Nassau via ferry is included.


  • Balmoral Island stingray encounter
  • Take a scenic ferry ride across the turquoise water
  • Pet, feed and hold a stingray with a trainer's supervision
  • Enjoy the rest of the island at your leisure: use the beachfront pool, go swimming, buy lunch or rent snorkeling gear
  • Relax on a white-sand beach, away from busy Nassau

What You Can Expect

Stingray Encounter and Beach Day from Nassau

Interact with stingrays during your trip to Nassau.

Make your way to the Nassau waterfront, then board the local ferry for the half-hour ride to a tiny private island off the coast. 

When you step off the ferry, meet a staff member and get a short introduction and safety briefing. Learn about the biology and behavior of the southern stingrays, which can grow up to 5 feet (2 meters) wide and hear about how to safely handle them.

Follow the onsite trainer into the shallows, where you'll stand waist-deep for a half-hour session with these graceful, gentle marine animals. Pet, feed and hold the rays, then pose for a souvenir photo that will be available for purchase later.

You'll have a few hours of leisure time after your stingray experience. Jump in the pool or go for a swim in the calm ocean. Relax on the soft sand beach with lunch or a drink in hand, both available for purchase at the island bars. 

You'll cruise back to Nassau on the ferry at the conclusion of your 4.5-hour eco-adventure.

The staff were really helpful and arranged for us to come back on an earlier ferry to ensure we were back in time for the ship. The lady showing us the stingrays was knowledge and answered all questions she was excellent. This was a fabulous experience and one I would recommend to anyone.

This trip was a lot of fun. Guides were very friendly. Lots of available beach chairs and umbrellas. Unfortunately we were not able to snorkel or feed the stingrays. They don and #39;t offer it at all. We got to hold one while they held another over your head while they took pictures. Then you and #39;re done.
