Former United States President and renowned diplomat Jimmy Carter visited Stingray City on Wednesday. The 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner, age 90, along with more than 20 family members and a complement of Secret Service agents, took a half-day tour with Capt. Marvin’s to Stingray City and two snorkeling stops. Anna Welds, with Capt. Marvin’s, worked with the president’s security detail to book the trip to the North Sound when the president and his family came ashore from a cruise ship. She said the plans were “all very hush-hush” due to security concerns.
The former president, who was raised in rural Georgia, was a peanut farmer who served two terms as a Georgia State Senator and one as the governor of Georgia, from 1971 to 1975. He was elected president in 1976,
