Boat ride to stingray island took about 30 minutes. Guides gave some history of island etc... The tour guide captured the stingray and gently let you hold it, take pictures with them, all of the rays were very calm and friendly, they would swim right up to you, the ones we saw had very small barbs, and they did not look sharp as if they were cut or filed down, there were 100's of people at this location, so it was a bit crowded, but each tour stayed off to their own group, the water was waist deep, and so pretty and refreshing.
