What You Can Expect

Starfish and Stingray City Adventure with Snorkeling

Stingray City snorkeling tour

Your boat tour takes you to three locations around Grand Cayman, the highlight of which is Stingray City, a section of water (no more than 5 feet / 1.5 meters deep) and sandbars home to a population of southern stingrays. 

When you arrive, learn about the proper behavior when you're in the water from the boat crew, and then hop in with a provided snorkel and mask to swim near the stingrays. Next, head to the Coral Garden, a nearby location when you can swim among some of the Cayman Islands' most colorful reefs. 

Your third stop is snorkeling with starfish, where you can relax in shallow water and look at different species of starfish. This is an especially popular activity for young kids. 

Your tour ends with return to the starting point.

THIS TOUR WAS INCREDIBLE!! I was so excited before we left, and it met every expectation. We even had a few people who were nervous before heading out and they had an excellent time. The snorkeling was perfect. Our boat anchored near other boats which gave us a large swimming area. I recommend swimming toward the other boats because you never know what they might be seeing! We saw tons of beautiful fish and even a stingray! Our time on the stingray sandbar was amazing. Our guides prepared us and helped us with meeting them. While there are many around, it is not super overwhelming and is pretty relaxing. You can easily take a phone into the water as it is only about waist deep I'm 5'3''. Our tour also had tons of kids and they were all having fun as well. The starfish was a perfect and short end to an amazing day. If you get the chance to do this, you will not regret it!

From the moment you step on this boat...you feel like family! The crew is wonderful and the boat ride is fun. First stop snorkeling with tons of great coral and colorful fish...and a surprise of two stingrays as well. Great place to take pictures. Then on to the main advent...Stingray City....WOW. It will blow your mind and can be a bit scary but thanks to the great staff you will be at ease in no time. Now I like to consider myself a good photographer and we had a gopro with us, but the photographer was amazing and the prices was extremely reasonable. There was no pressure to buy them so I didn't....but then called them back once I saw how much better they were than the ones I had other people take of us while we were having one on one encounter with a stingray. Some things are just worth it! After that we took a boat ride to starfish beach which was another great experience. This was a great tour and I highly recommend this company to anyone. I noticed a lot of the other boats were extremely over crowed. We had a great group of people on the boat and the crew made us feel as if we all got our own personal attention.

stingray city Cayman Islands what an adventure we had! We did the 3 stops, each stop was so nice, the staff was so knowledgeable about each stop which made it easy to enjoy, the views of the corals and fishes without worrying about causing them any harm. The stingray city was just spectacular, I mean who knew you could go to the middle of the ocean and stand in 3 feet of beautiful crystal clear water. Pictures were awesome and prices were good.I will definitely be returning and I will be using Stingray City Cayman Islands again. I highly recommend this company, friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff, very happy with their service and the tour itself was worth every dollar spent. To Stingray City Cayman islands staff thank you for pretty awesome experience you all certainly made it a memorable experience and fun, I will be back with you in future!

We loved this tour, the highlight was obviously stingray city. We have actually done Stingray city before and this tour was way better, more interaction with the rays including feeding them. They gave us lots of information about the rays that really enhanced the tour, was defiantly the highlight of our trip. The first snorkel spot was very serine, lots of beautiful coral and marine life. The starfish are cool if you haven't seen many in the wild, It wasn't a big deal to me but it flowed well with the tour, which was overall amazing. The transport was onetime and easy, everyone on the ship was fun and engaging. There was a photographer there who took underwater photos of you with the stingrays which were great, they were kind of expensive 85 for 16 pics but they didn't push them on you, we got them because we thought that it was worth it and she gave us a flash drive right away. I highly recommend this tour!
