After much research on the internet, we decided to book our trip to see the rays with Stingray Sailing. Not only were we able to save US$30/person off the cost of a similar tour, it was a much more intimate experience then we would have had with the cruise line. Booking by email was easy, and Michelle responded quickly to all our questions. We had no problems finding our guide, Chip, who brought us to the marina where our catamaran, captained by Bert, was waiting for us. The sail out was fantastic, beautiful and relaxing, and seeing the rays was truly the highlight of our trip (Feb 21-28). Chip and Bert demonstrated extreme professionalism and regard for our wellbeing, especially when conditions became too dangerous for us to be in the water due to the high winds and swells. Chip even spent time diving through the waves when one of our party lost a sentimental ring. Although we were in the water but a short time, I was still able to experience feeding the rays, touching them and being in the water with these magestic wild creatures. The crew was probably as disappointed as we were that our tour was cut short (Note: we were offered full refunds, but chose to give some cash anyway, as the short trip was well worth it) Chip, Bert and his wife were so hospitable (we even got fantastic lunch recommendations and were dropped off at the restaurant door) and we really enjoyed chatting with these friendly locals who truly deserve the positive reviews they've received so far.
