STINGRAY CITY A TRULY ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE
Stingray City History
Stingray City Boat Tours is in the shallow waters of the northwest corner of Grand Cayman North Sound. It is just inside a natural channel that passes through the barrier reef and consists of a string of sandbars crossing the North Sound from Morgan Harbour to Rum Point. It may be that stingrays began gathering in the area decades ago when fisherman returning from an excursion, navigated behind a reef into the sound, and cleaned their fish in the calm water of the shallows and sandbar area. Now it’s Cayman’s #1 attraction.
Stingray City History Continued.
The fish guts and squid were thrown overboard and the stingrays eventually congregated to feast there. Soon the stingrays associated the sound of a boat engine with food. As this practice turned into a tradition, divers realized that the stingrays could be fed by hand. Passengers disembark and enter the chest-high water to interact with the stingrays. The boats’ proprietors bring along with them pails of chunked-up squid meat, which they dispense by hand to the animals, attracting dozens of the creatures to the feeding spot.
