Stingrays at Caribbean Cove

The stingrays and sharks are back for a season-long pool party at Stingrays at Caribbean Cove!

Watch, touch and occasionally feed the unique and fascinating stingrays, as they glide through a warm saltwater pool. The sharks are a little too shy for petting, but you may be lucky enough to have one touch you briefly as it swims by.
