Visiting Stingray City in Grand Cayman

November 17, 2013 | Posted in: Services

If you’re visiting Grand Cayman for vacation, there are plenty of places you have to see and experience. One of these that should top your list is called Stingray City.

Located in the North Sound of the island, Stingray City is a collection of sandbars where hundreds of southern stingrays congregate. These fish are extremely friendly, allowing tourists to interact with and feed them.

No one’s entirely sure how Stingray City became a destination for their namesake fish. One popular theory is that the animals began collecting their after they realized that fishermen used the shallow waters to clean their fish after an expedition. As fisherman would regularly toss fish remains and squid into the shallow water, southern stingrays may have made the connection that this was easy eating.

Of course, nowadays, the same is still very much true although for different reasons. Tourists will often take to the sandbar with handfuls of food to attract these unique and curious creatures. You can wear scuba gear if you like, but it’s just as easy to go at it with nothing but a snorkel and mask. Either way the result will be an experience you’ll never forget.

While there is so much to do and see in Grand Cayman, you’ll be happy you made time for Stingray City.
