Overview

Travel to Stingray City by boat on this 3-hour excursion from Grand Cayman. Wade and swim in the shallow water as the free-roaming southern stingrays float through the water. Snorkel at the Barrier Reef or Coral Gardens on this family-friendly outing, which includes round-trip transportation from your hotel on Grand Cayman.
  • Grand Cayman tour to Stingray City
  • Experience one of the Cayman Islands’ most popular attractions
  • Enjoy scenic boat rides to and from Stingray City
  • Stand or swim in shallow water with dozens of stingrays
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off on Grand Cayman included
Following pickup from your hotel on Grand Cayman, transfer to the marina where you'll meet your boat. Watch as the island's coastline recedes and sip the provided water or juice during your 30-minute boat ride out to a series of sandbars in clear, shallow water. 
Upon arrival at Stingray City, jump out of the boat into the calm, waist-deep water. The stingrays that congregate here are wild, but are accustomed to being near humans. During your 45-minute stay, watch them pass by and take plenty of photos during your encounter.
Climb back on your boat and head over to the Barrier Reef or the Coral Garden for some snorkeling. Don the provided snorkel equipment and spend about a half hour floating peacefully in the calm waters among coral and schools of tropical fish. Your guide is available for beginner snorkel instruction. 
Return to the marina on the boat, then transfer back to your Grand Cayman hotel at the end of this 3-hour tour.

An overall great experience. The captain and crew were very professional and engaging. However, the current and chop was so strong it was difficult to enjoy the sting rays and snorkeling was impossible, at least for me to manage my 7 and 10yo. Although the company of course can not control the weather, they should consider a refund/rain check policy when conditions interfere with the quality of the experience.

Crew was attentive, however made poor judgement call to continue with the tour. The winds were strong and currents were horrendous. Though it was probably safe to go on the board ride, the Stringray visit was a waste as the waters were very bad, bad enough that the snorkel part of the tour was diverted to Starfish point (boring) and water was a bit chilly because of the North winds. The tour should have been cancelled to begin with knowing the weather and winds are not idea. Being locals conducting these tours should have known better. Disappointing to say the least.

Started out bad as got off the ship early as we were told to and then had to wait over an hour for it to leave. Then they didn't have our reservation but I had my receipt so no problem there. no smoking policy onboard but 3 people smoked and made me nauseous. seas were rough so harder to snorkel. stingrays were great, got to feed, hold and get some pictures.

We had a wonderful time. The guys running the tour knew what they were doing. They were friendly and professional. We all had fun and felt safe. A nice day. We had three stops. We thought there were two, but were pleasantly surprised when our last stop was seeing the star fish.

Crew was just ok. They had a hard time catching a stingray and an even harder time keeping it. The other tours had ample time with them. Not very engaging.

Booked this excursion the morning we left for our cruise - so last minute is okay - please keep in mind that for local pickup you have to send them an email of where you will be picked up from cruise terminal or hotel after you book. pickup was super easy - in grand cayman when you exit the ship there's a gated area with all of the excursion tents and the tent of Rowan was exactly where they said they would be. also, saw other reviews about no beverages included, on ours there was: water, juice, etc and driver / captain / ray handler were all super friendly - so: 1. meeting point at cruise terminal 2. shuttle van to pick up others at hotels 3. drop off at marina 4. boat ride to stingray city 5. very short boat ride to a coral reef for additional snorkel time 5. then back to the marina and cruise terminal - sometimes people are really hesitant to book outside of official cruise and hotel excursions but definitely verify great value, thanks for the great time !!!
