Everything about the Stingray City excursion was amazing. From the tour and information on the short van ride to the snorkeling, interacting with stingrays and service - it was all top notch! The crew is very fun and friendly. It was an experience to remember for sure!

We were from a cruise ship, but did this tour on our own - for way less money, not difficult either. The trip was great, efficient, friendly and a sunny day - not that they have control over that. I would just say that Stingray City is not what it used to be. I stayed in Grand Cayman in 2003... More

We booked a private 3 stop snorkel tour with Captain Marvins for a group of 7--4 adults, 3 kids. I thought that might have difficulty because of the tendering process in Grand Cayman but it was a non issue. Our original tour was a little later in the day but they were able to switch us to a earlier time.... More

We were pleasantly surprised not to be on a very packed boat and be rushed around every where. The crew were great. They made the whole experience of getting serious messages about how to treat the Stingrays fun. Go in the afternoon to avoid the cruise ships & that way you have more space and time with the Stingrays. Would... More

We had a great time snorkeling and checking out the sting rays. We reserved the morning option. The van picked us up at our rental (Regal Beach Club). They were on time and very efficient. The next stop, the guests were not ready, so instead of having all 10 of us wait for the couple, our driver left them. He... More

What a great tour! Much more reasonably than a ship tour. Easy to get to from the pier. Our van driver was fun and informative. Once he dropped us off, the boat Captain took over(can't remember his name) he and the young man with him were geat. Sting Ray city was so much fun, once you get used to the... More

My 12 year old son and I went on the stingray city tour. The entire crew was fantastic. We had a few hours on our layover and wanted to do something fun. We had a great time. Also thanks to the taxi driver who helped us out by taking us to Captain Marvin's . He rescued a couple in need.... More

Arrived in Grand Cayman via NCL Epic on a windy Tuesday in January. The ship excursions which included snorkeling were all cancelled due to the high winds, so we went straight to the window after tendering to shore thinking that our tour was cancelled as well. We were told NO, but that we were leaving at 1pm instead of 2pm.... More

The snorkeling was great. The stingrays were adorable. And the crew was fantastic. We had a lady with a walking disability and the captain helped her get in the water and back onto the boat without any hesitation. Very very nice people!

Our first full day in Grand Cayman couldn't have been more magical than in taking this trip. The lovely boat trip across the bay to the sandbar right near a breach in the reef allowing refreshing feeding waves for the stingrays that live here. They genuinely seek out human contact and came spontaneously onto my husband's out- stretched hands. Just... More
