Southern Stingray

This Southern Stingray was a resident of the waters off the island of Statia but the most exciting encounter we had with stingrays was in Grand Turk. We had the good fortune to have as our Dive Master Tim Dunn. Tim's family is from Salt Cay and farmed salt for many years on the island. Tim gave us a personal tour of the "White House" on the island with it's limestone roof and antique furniture dating back to the 1700's. At the end of the week Tim took us to a remote island where we swam with dozens of stingrays. They would swim under you and rake you with their barbs but never did get aggressive.
