-Making the most of your time with the rays-
We take pride in upholding the outstanding reputation that we have established, and go the extra mile to make certain our guests feel more like friends, rather than customers. While the majority of other companies rely on the catch and hold method of handling the rays, ultimately scaring the rays away into deep waters, we have found that allowing the rays to swim freely, as nature intends, proves to be highly beneficial in the amount of rays our customers get to interact with.
Lower price does not mean a better deal.Read More
Because we don’t over crowd our boat, we can spend more time tending to our guests needs.Read More
Larger groups tend to have less rays. Why wait around for your guide to catch a ray, when you can be with us, and let the rays come to you.Watch it on video

We have built our reputation around the idea of staying in balance with nature. Many of the bigger operators depend on catching stingrays to show one to their guests. We find that if you treat them nicely and just sit back, they will come to you. This often results in us having more rays than the competition and other operators coming to our boat to kidnap rays when they can not find any for themselves.
Sounds like a bold claim to make? Come and see for yourself.

-what to expect-
Our trips are done on the sailing catamaran the Far Tortuga. .The Far Tortuga is forty-three feet long and twenty feet wide. What does this mean to the average person? Space, and lots of it. With trips with a maximum of twenty five people there is always lots of room aboard the Far Tortuga. .Instead of sitting on a bench rubbing shoulders with the person next to you, we give you space to lay out in the sun to work on your tan. Whether under power or under sail, it is always a smooth ride on the Far-Tortuga.
Once at the Sandbar / Stingray City, one of our crew will teach you the proper technique for interacting with and not chasing off the stingrays. We will then enter the water with you to show you how it is done. At this point, if you are brave enough we will even supply you with squid (the favorite food of the rays) so that you can feed them and even tempt them up to the surface yourselves. Get ready to be amazed by these graceful and gentle creatures from the deep. Stingrays use a super set of senses to search for food. Special gel-filled pits across the front of their face, that allow them to pick up electrical signals from other animals when they move.
After the sandbar we will head off to snorkel the reef. At This this location the water is between 6 to 8 feet deep, with the reef coming up almost to the surface. While swimming here you will see many kinds of coral and an abundance of tropical fish. Coral reefs are one of the world's most colorful and diverse ecosystems, and though they cover only about 1 percent of the ocean floor, they have a huge effect on the health of the rest of the world. Healthy coral reefs mean healthy oceans which means healthy planet.
Once you are done with that, we raise the sails for a quiet and relaxing trip back to the yacht club. In addition to creating lots of room the twin hull design provides a smooth ride by cutting effortlessly through the waves of the North Sound. For your convenience our boat is equipped with a fresh water rinse, to get the salt off, and a marine toilet.
