Swim with stingrays in the shallow crystal-clear waters off Gibbs Cay and then relax on one of the lengthiest beaches on Grand Turk. A scenic cruise on a sleek, 45-foot catamaran will bring you to the island, which is little more than a speck in the sea. Although the cay is nicknamed Stingray City, conch are also plentiful. After demonstrating how this delicacy is prepared, the guides will offer you samples to taste. You will then have the opportunity to swim with the abundant stingrays that frequent these waters. Stingrays don’t have a bone in their bodies, but rather flexible cartilage that allows them to gracefully swim by flapping their sides like wings. Feel free to touch them as stingrays are remarkably docile. Following the encounter, you will spend free time on a nearby beach, where you can stretch out on a lounge chair and take a refreshing swim in the sea.
