Meet “The Sea Pancake” – Stingrays

Affectionately called the “Sea Pancake,” the stingray is a flat-bodied ray with a long tail. Though their tail can be intimidating, stingrays are generally not dangerous. In fact, they have a long reputation for being extremely gentle! 

Did You Know?

  • Stingrays are closely related to sharks in that they do not have bones, and their skeletons are made up of cartilage instead. 
  • Stingrays have flat bodies that allow them to dig into the sand and hide from dangerous predators. 
  • Stingrays do not use their eyes to hunt for prey. Instead, they use their sense of smell and can detect electric fields or currents in the water to hunt. 
  • Stingrays eat a diet of crustaceans such as clams, crabs, shrimp, oysters, and more. 
  • Stingrays can have between two and six babies a year.
  • Stingrays live long lives. Typically, a stingray lives between 15 and 25 years in the wild.


Snorkel with Stingray Friends at SeaQuest

It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside; getting into tropical waters to snorkel with stingrays, sharks, and tropical fish is an amazing experience you will always remember. Our warm tanks are approximately 70 to 76 degrees – just the perfect temp for stingrays and humans to swim together! We provide the wetsuit and snorkeling gear. All you need to bring is a swimsuit, a towel, and a shirt, just in case a wetsuit in your size isn’t available. So get ready to get wet, and if you are lucky, you might even get some stingray kisses or get your toes explored by the guitarfish.

Here are a few essential details to consider as you prepare to experience snorkeling with our SeaQuest friends:

  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled time for your Snorkel with the Stingrays session.
  • Your Snorkel with the Stingrays session lasts 30 minutes. Please allow an additional 15 minutes to get in and out of the tank and change back into regular clothes after the session has ended.

  • The water depth is five feet throughout the snorkeling area of the tank.
  • Reservations are required for all participants for this attraction.
