About Experience

Visit Gibbs Cay and snorkel among the southern stingrays that inhabit the protected waters of this pristine island! This 2-hour aquatic adventure in Grand Turk Cays Land and Sea National Park takes you by power catamaran to one of the best natural attractions of Turks and Caicos. Stop along the way to snorkel in the barrier reef and then stand in shallow water to watch the rays as they glide past in the crystal-clear water! Enjoy this snorkel adventure from your hotel or cruise ship.

After hotel or port pickup in Grand Turk, board a power catamaran for a comfortable 15-minute ride to Gibbs Cay for your stingray encounter. On the way, view other uninhabited and interconnected Caribbean islands in Grand Turk Cays Land and Sea National Park. Your guide will make a stop for your small group to snorkel in the barrier reef, where parrot fish and butterfly fish are among the myriad species that swim through the colorful corals.Arrive at Gibbs Cay, established as the best place in Turks and Caicos to see the southern stingrays. Stand in less than 2 feet (.6 meters) of water near the shore – shallow enough for small children to feel comfortable. You’ll descend into the crystal-clear waters from the white sands at unspoiled Gibbs Cay Beach and watch the graceful stingrays glide along the surface. Your guide will explain their biology and behavior, in addition to how they’ve adapted to the human presence in these protected waters. While you swim and snorkel with the stingrays, learn about their breeding and eating patterns as well as how they deter and hide from predators. If you’d like, spend some free time lounging on the island or combing its beach for seashells. Don’t miss a chance to get a photo with the stingrays for bragging rights when you return home! After your amazing experience, your guide will deliver you by catamaran and motorized vehicle to your Grand Turk hotel or the cruise ship terminal.

Peter

My name is Peter and I’m the Managing Partner at Pearl Island Bahamas. We started this because I love the Bahamas, its culture and people. That’s what we want to show everyone who visits our island. After a complete renovation Pearl Island Bahamas reopened its doors to guests in June 2016. The vision for Pearl Island Bahamas was to create a unique Caribbean getaway – a dream island filled with tropical flair, art, culture, and music for locals and visitors alike. Me and my team will show you a real Bahamian experience. Take in its stunning natural beauty and wildlife as you bask on our beautiful white-sand beaches, sample some local Bahamian dishes and exceptional drinks, or tour the Lighthouse with stunning views of the surrounding seascape. We’re looking forward to welcoming you!
