With a guide, your tour starts with the short trip to the Cayman Turtle Farm in West Bay; along the way, you can admire some of the sights of Grand Cayman's Seven Mile Beach area. 

When you arrive, your first encounter at the park is with the largest turtles, some of which weigh more than 600 pounds (272 kg). Then follow your guide to different tanks to see and learn about the smaller green turtles. Photo ops taken by onsite photographers are available (own expense). In addition to the turtles, the park is home to more sea creatures such as sharks and other fish.

Then leave the Turtle Farm for the second part of your tour—Stingray City. After a quick bus ride, you'll board a boat for the roughly 20-minute journey to the site, where you'll be given instructions on safety and proper behavior when you're in the water near the stingrays. Then hop in with provided snorkeling gear and flotation device, and follow your guide to the population of southern stingrays. Underwater pictures are available, if you wish.

When your time is up, you'll be shuttled back to George Town in time to see a few other attractions and enjoy shopping, if you wish.

Sting Ray City

The tour was fun. It was a little crowded but overall nice. I am a travel agent, I had reserved the tour for Monday with a pickup at 12:00NOON. I was called at 9:00 and the driver asked where we were. I told him that we were for the afternoon. Then, about 10:00am, a got a call telling me that there weren't enough people to run the afternoon tour. I rescheduled for Tuesday morning. The upsetting part was that if Monday had been my last day, I would not have been able to go. This is concerning as I book clients with Viator a lot. I would hate for my clients to have this experience.
Paid for something and didnt come close. Went to the designated booth and was only brought to sting ray city.

We had 11 people on this excursion and had no idea that we’d be on a boat with over 50 people. The boat was packed, The driver was terrible. He said those of us in the front of the boat would get a little wet, we were soaked and freezing by the time we got to the first stop. Then at Stingray city he hit another boat, passengers were screaming. Then he decided to add another stop that wasn’t planned and made us late for our next outing. This tour wasn’t just for those going to the turtle farm. Some went pack to port, some went to the beach. They didn’t communicate with us at all. Then our bus driver was over 10 minutes late to get us from the Turtle farm that some took a taxi pack to port as they were worried they’d miss the ship. I gave it a 2 as we did get to swim with and hold a stingray. Oh be AWARE don’t buy the pictures. I paid cash and never received my pictures via email as they said I would. No way to contact anyone. It’s to bad as we love Cayman.
Stingrays !!

This trip was amazing, we got to see so many different things in addition to a beautiful boat ride in between stops. Our boat captain was knowledgeable and friendly. The turtle farm was ok, a lot of reviews made it out to be amazing but it was just ok for our family. We had a little time after the turtle farm so our driver took us on a little tour of the island including Hell. Worth it, would do it again.
We got so much more than we...

We got so much more than we expected. From the snorkeling to the stingrays and then the starfish. What an awesome experience. Turtle farm was fun for my younger kids, slightly run down and we traveled on their off breeding season so we didn't get to see the baby turtles. Great experience overall!
Sehr gelungene Tour
