DON’T MISS FEEDING TIME AT PARADISE ISLAND’S STINGRAY LAGOON

Take a few steps outside Atlantis, Paradise Island’s Beach Tower and you’ll find yourself at the sandy, shallow, Stingray Lagoon. An exquisite marine habitat that affords resort guests an up-close look at rays, vacationers have a chance to touch and feed the graceful creatures. It’s chance for close up marine life interaction that’s not to be missed.

MARINE LIFE IN RESIDENCE

Southern stingrays (Dasyatis Americana) and Cownose rays (Rhinoptera bonasus). Stingrays are relatively docile creatures and not all are venomous. The Cownose rays however, do have venomous barbs on the top of their tail and are used only as a defense mechanism.

Sandy Shelters

Southern stingrays are masters at burying themselves. They use their long, winglike fins to flip sand over their bodies and end up with only their spiracles exposed for respiration. This sandy hideaway helps them remain concealed from their primary predator, the hammerhead shark.

Access to all Atlantis marine habitats and Aquaventure Waterpark are FREE for guests staying at the resort. Passes may be purchased by day visitors, but availability is limited – and may be closed – during periods of high resort occupancy.
