Tour guide was waiting for us when we got off the tender. Nice catamaran. Visited two snorkeling sites-one with stingrays; saw lots of fish and coral. We took our own masks and snorkels, but used their fins. Very enjoyable day. We, and our equipment, were rinsed when returning to the boat after the last snorkel. Very pleasant trip. Read Less

If you go to Grand Cayman with kids, book this excursion! We booked directly through Captain Marvin's Watersports. They were fantastic and the excursion was even better than advertised. (I thought we would have 1 snorkel stop, but there were 2, in addition to the Stingray City stop.) Communication prior to the excursion and payment the day of the excursion were both effective and painless. Lastly, my wife left her sunglasses in the bathroom by the boat departure port and didn't realize it until we arrived back into the city. Anna and several drivers communicated by radio to find that another client had picked them up and taken them to her hotel, looking for the original owner. The drivers coordinated through Anna to get the glasses back to my wife within 30 minutes. They weren't an exceptionally valuable pair of sunglasses, but the employees went the extra mile to help us out. They were fantastic! Read Less

Don Foster’s Dive Cayman, Georgetown, Grand Cayman We booked this tour before we left Canada for our cruise. We were met promptly at our designated time and walked a short way to the dive boat. We were taken to two dive/snorkelling sites a short boat ride away. It was a beautiful day, the water was warm and the fish on the reef were abundant. Our guides, Jonathan, Daphne, and Lauren, provided great instructions, with some humour thrown in, and joined us in the water as safety monitors. All the snorkelling equipment was in very good shape. This would be a fun trip for all ages and we recommend. Read Less

Very exciting to get up close and personal with stingrays. The guide made sure we all had an opportunity with it. The place was very crowded, but the guide said we were the only boat in that day whereas they sometimes have 6 to 7! I was imagining flocks of stingrays swimming around me, that is not the reality. I would see 1 here or there and the guide had to go looking for one to show us. Still a good experience nonetheless. Don't go if it will make you sad to see a wild stingray man-handled. Read Less

Awesome place to snorkel but would recommend going to 7 mile beach. Water in Grand Cayman is insane, similar to Bahamas but the snorkelling is a lot better.

Snorkeling was decent at the reef and excellent at Coral Gardens. Next time I would book snorkel only and have more time or more stops. Read Less

Sanitary conditions of gear poor, 3 members of my family got sick from using the equipment. The actual adventure of snorkeling was fun, saw a stingray, swordfish, and several other colorful and fun fish.

Reef and Wreck snorkel.
Sail Date: October 2016
Reef and Wreck snorkel. This is by far the best I have ever seen. The boat looks kind of "Iffy". But the Sea Mermaid is really a very neat, glass bottom boat. We saw more fish here than I saw in 6 other snorkel's combine.

We snorkeled two sites.

We snorkeled two sites. One was a ship wreck and reef, the other just a reef. The boat was a little scary at first glance but this was, bar far, the best snorkeling we have ever done.

The catamaran snorkeling was great.
Sail Date: August 2016
The catamaran snorkeling was great. We went to a sunken ship and to the coral reef. Booking any excursion through the cruise is always expensive. It left at 11:45 which gave us time to shop and explore Grand Cayman a little before we left.
