In the moment we are in the water they are heading for us. They do not keep any distance and bump in to us. We need both hands to keep them in distance. No this are no sharks and no they are not a bit aggressive. This is just the place where those sting rays are fed by the visitors - and they expect some food from us, too.


This video is produced by our friends Dan und Jilly from SV Dazzler: It shows us playing with some incredible tame Stingrays. It also covers our visit at the underwater Tiki site.
