Excursions - anyone been?

Has anyone been on the the Blackbeard Cay Stingray Adventure? Do you really swim with the stingrays and touch them and feed them? How about the Glass Bottom Kayak excursion? Is the scenery amazing?

I went on a few excursions however I have to say the best was a trip to Rose Island - its a private Island. You get pciked up from your resort and taken to the docks - hop on a boat (which serves refreshments)you sail past some of the most amazing propities and get a guide who tells you which famous people own what, you also sail past Atlantis which is pretty spectacular then its off to the Island. The Island is not lived on but they have facilities there -fantastic snorkeling, great luch - the sea is crystal clear. See link below might be of help.


I did swin with the dolphins and stigray which was amazing but I believe the tour that I did no longer operates.

Hope this is of help


here and there

I believe the Sea Island Adventure currently goes to Blackbeards Cay.. not to Rose Island.

(Robinson Crusoe still goes to Rose Island and is quite nice).

As for Blackbeards, it too is a private island, it's off the coast of Cable Beach.. and yes, you get to swim, pet and feed the stingrays.

You enter from the beach and feed them in knee deep water.. they flock around you as soon as you enter. They are very friendly. After feeding, you can swim around in the open pen.

Here's a link to some pics from our last excursion.
