Stingray City (Grand Cayman) - Diving with wild Southern Stingrays that have become acclimated to humans is a truly unique experience. Attracted by bits of squid the divers hold, the rays have no qualms about being in close quarters or even letting divers pet them (their skin is velvety-smooth) as they pass. Contrary to popular belief, stingrays do not aggressively use the stingers in their tails, but only do so as a "last resort" defense when they believe their lives are being threatened.
