We went on the four hour trip to Stingray City last week. We are a family of four and there were only four additional people on the trip with us. The boat is beautiful and immaculately clean. Our guides were wonderful with the rays and our snorkel was absolutely beautiful and well done.
While at Stingray City we saw other boats coming in and unloading huge numbers of guests, this was not the case with Sun Rays, they keep it small, personal, safe and enjoyable. My children are thirteen and seventeen and both enjoyed the outing. On our way back to the dock the crew opened the sails and served pizza and snacks. We hope to sail with Sun Rays again and would definitely encourage anyone else to sail with them.

We almost "wimped out" and canceled the morning of out trip. After all, we might get seasick, or get sunburned, or killed by a sting ray....but I called Sun Rays Tours and was assured the sailing would be smooth and vessel was quite stable. We decided on 100 spf sunblock, and so many others had reported on Tripadvisor the rays were gentle and friendly....we decided to go. WOW are we glad we did! The vessel and crew were lovely! Smooth sailing indeed! The crew couldn't have been more personable, helpful or professional. Between the sun block , hats, and shaded area on vessel, we tackled the sun. The water and scenery were breathtakingly beautiful. And the sting rays were so welcoming,
friendly, soft, playful, and even asked for kisses! We just had to accommodate!
There were only 12 guests in addition to the crew on our tour. It was relaxing and delightful visiting with other guests and crew as we sailed back enjoying our pizza an sodas. Sun Rays Tours must surely be the best choice if you are looking for an exciting, lovely, unique and SAFE experience. We highly recommend them! Have fun!

This tour was absolutely amazing. When stopped in stingray city, they let you and your family hold, kiss, feed and play with the stingrays. The stingrays are completely friendly and virtually harmless, they will just come right up to you and brush against your legs, they will also let you pet them as you play with them in the water. After Stingray City they take you on a guided tour through a coral reef and show you some beautiful undersea wildlife, and the tour guide points out se photo worthy creatures like a Moray Eel in a three year old shipwreck, and a couple of lobsters. The tour guides have fantastic knowledge of the reef as they give you a guided tour through the winding reef. After all is said and done you re-board the boat, as you cruise back in to harbor they put up the sail and serve you delicious pizza, and offer whole family photos. Overall it's a breathtaking must do trip through two beautiful locations. The hospitality is phenomenal, and it's just a great overall experience.

I have been to stingray city numerous times but going with Sun Rays was by far the best! The boat is beautiful, the staff is friendly and attentive, the group is small (ours was 18), they also have sodas, water and pizza on board. It was very refreshing after being in the salty sea water. My family toured with them last year, repeated this year and we will be back. It was wonderful. Elena and Walter were wonderful guides. They were very patient picking up the stingrays and teaching us how to handle them.

We had fifteen family members ages 8 to 76 on this tour. The crew, Walter, Elena and Rodney were terrific. We learned so much about the stingrays and the snorkeling was wonderful. With Elena and Rodney as our guides, we visited two elderly female moray eels during our snorkeling tour along the reef.
