As you may know we have been staying at a little moorage for a while. A quick swim from our boat is a beach called Volleyball Beach. But this is no normal beach! This beach is frequented by manta rays hoping for some leftovers from the conch salad shack.

The people working there will often feed the rays, or allow tourists to feed them. (No sign that says “DO NOT FEED RAYS”). They are so comfortable with humans that they will slide right over your feet and creep you out! Yes we speak from experience.

Manta ray fun facts:
1. Guess what? We just researched it for the fun facts, and what we believed to be mantas actually turns out to be stingrays ! Sorry about the error!
2. Stingrays are related to sharks
3. Stingrays do have a poisonous barb on the end of their tails but it’s only used in self defense. Even so we’ll be careful
