Default sting rays

is it worth it to go swimming with the sting rays? I want to do it but everyone keeps telling me that i'll get bored of it. If you've done it then let me know what you thought of it!

Hey!I went on the stingray shore excursion this past June and I absolutly LOVED it!!It is definatly worth it!!The ride out there on the boat was fun cuz they were jammin bob marley to set the raggae/caribbean mood lol!!Then once we got out there not only was it gorgeous,But it was amazing to see all of the stingrays!!There is sooooo many of them!!When I first got in the water I was kinda scared and like freaked out when a stingray swam by and touched me,but after a little while I warmed up to them some and began picking them up and holding them!!It was a great experience and i'd do it again in a heartbeat!!!I definatly recommend doing it!!

I've done this twice. The first time I spent the majority of the time freaking out that they would sting me. But by the end I was really enjoying it. When I did it the second time I was only scared for a couple minutes. I think it's a really cool experience. If you have the chance I would definitely recommend it.

do it. i swear. it's the best island activity i've ever done. i've done it twice because when we went back to grand cayman, we couldn't imagine going there and not doing it again. it's amazing and the best time you'll have. i hate leaving it too. i get so mad when they tell us we have to go =(

i didn't get bored of it..

oh i totally agree funkymonkey. i freaked out MAJORLY my first time, but you get used to it after awhile. psh my dad was holding me the first time and i freaked out if he let go. my second time i was like the first one off the boat and went right in. i was so excited.
