What You Can Expect

Grand Cayman Catamaran Cruise with Snorkeling at Stingray Sandbar and Reef

Visit stingray sandbar and reef!

On this luxury catamaran cruise you’ll discover southern stingrays and a coral reef teeming with schools of colorful fish. After pickup from selected Grand Cayman hotels, you’re transferred to the dock to board your 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran.

While your captain navigates to your first destination, enjoy stunning Caribbean views in this tropical paradise. On arrival at the Stingray City Sandbar, disembark to wade in the shallow, crystal-clear water, which reaches depths of just 2 to 4 feet (.6 to 1.3 meters), and marvel at the stingrays swimming around you.

You have about one hour to spend here while your guide demonstrates how to interact with these gentle creatures and stroke their smooth undersides. Just be sure to pose for plenty of pictures! Next up is a shallow reef for a snorkel stop. Don your mask and fins, then slip into the turquoise water to explore the amazing underwater world of Grand Cayman.

Back on board, you can order a cocktail or other beverage from the cash bar before your boat returns to the dock for the transfer back to your hotel.

We had an amazing time. Riding in the catamaran was so much fun. The crew was great and it was so nice watching them work the sails and the boat.

The stingrays were great and hanging out in the after on the sandbar was so cool too.

I recommend this trip to everyone.

We received the cruise as a wedding present and we couldn't have asked for a better day! Everyone on board was so wonderful. They took the time to teach us about the stingrays, help us hold them, answered any questions we had about the area and most of all they were also having a great time! It was great to relax on the way back while sipping a rum punch. We highly recommend and will be back!

My husband and I came to Grand Cayman to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. This trip was probably the greatest highlight of our entire trip. It involved a beautiful catamaran ride to the Stingray Sandbar where we were able to hold large stingrays and snorkel with them as well. We also stopped at another snorkeling spot called Coral Gardens and were able to swim with lots of different species of sea fish. The staff aboard our ship The Poseidon were wonderful, and it was great that there was a professional photographer aboard to take some shots of us holding the stingrays as well. Overall, it was a lovely trip. My husband and I would highly recommend it!

Visiting the stingrays is a wonderful experience and should not be missed. Amazing creatures and the tour was top notch. Make sure you can meet "Sandy" and get a picture with her.

Really fun experience. Stepping into the ocean w/ prowling stingrays is at bit scary at first but once you realize that they have no interest in hurting anyone you can calm down and enjoy. Red Sails crew was excellent. I would go out w them anytime again.
