Stingray City has been a main attraction to Grand Cayman for over two decades since Skin Diver reported on it in 1987. Yes—it’s got a little bit busier these days, but it is still the same mind-blowing experience it always was. However, all of this could change soon, as the Cayman Islands Liquor Licensing board has granted a permit for a floating bar to operate in this area (which is a Marine Park).
Whilst it is not yet known what legislation exists that can prevent this from happening there is obviously something very wrong with the idea of a bar in a marine park where you interact with wild animals. Many Wetpixel members have spent time with the rays in Stingray City, generating 1000s of photos between us all. If you have enjoyed the experience, please head on over to the forums to learn about how you can get involved with our protest.
