Sting Ray City


Sting Ray City

Scuba Diving with Southern Stingrays and Moray Eel at Stingray City in Grand Cayman.
When coming back from fishing the fishermen would clean their fish just inside the reef in the shallows of this bay. When they threw the extra overboard, the stingrays would get a free meal. Eventually they came to expect this and hang show up when they smell squid or hear a boat engine. It's a pretty crazy place when there are 5 or more cruise ships in town! We went in the afternoon when the crowd was gone and we actually did not feed the fish (stingrays are fish) but the guide had some shopped up squid in a bottle with small holes that they tried to get into.
The rays are the Southern Stingray and the females are about 5 feet across and the males about 2 feet across.

Spotted Eagle Ray

The Spotted Eagle Ray is one of the most graceful creatures I have ever seen. In this video you see one finding
something to eat (crustacean or fish) under the sand and devour it. It is about 6 feet across and has a tail about 6 feet long. Beautiful.

They let some of them free.
