    Stop: 40 minutes -
    Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, and make sure to be ready for George Town hotel or port pickup before your 9:30 a.m. or 12 p.m. departure. After transport in an air-conditioned bus, enjoy this wet and wild adventure at Stingray City and Coral Gardens, where you can enjoy roughly 30-40 minutes at each stop. Stingray City consists of several shallow sandbars where southern stingrays reside in large numbers. Here, you can learn about the biology and behavior of these graceful animals while seeing them in their natural habitat. Then, head off to the famous Coral Gardens for a nice snorkel, with equipment included. See a diverse array of tropical fish while you swim through the water. As part of the transportation to the destinations, come onboard our vessels with the captain, mate, and photographer, and get a hold of some memorable photos. The tour ends with bus transport back to your hotel or port.
