STING RAY INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE

Connect with our friendly rays with this one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience. Reach out and gently touch the back and 'wings' of these creatures as they glide through their habitat. We clip the barbs on their tails (like fingernails), so they are safe to touch. Our staff will show you our 2-finger touch method.
