Encounter one of Grand Cayman's most popular sea creatures -- the stingray. Feed and touch them as you swim together in the island's turquoise water.
This stop was great as usual.

This stop was great as usual. The guides should however sort people into groups to go into the water. We had several who were scared to death to get into the water due to the waves and the depth of the water where you anchor. it was about 5.5 feet deep without the waves but as you moved onto the sandbar it was waist deep to mid thigh on me and I an 5 ft 4 in. My husband and I helped one lady back on the boat because she was too scared and our guides were involved in taking pictures (5 for $50). Read Less

We took the Catamaran Sail and Stingray City, and I will never do Stingray city again in my life! The guide stated that this was the first excursion they had done in 2 weeks due to the current being too strong in the area. Well, they definitely should have waited another week because it was way too strong. I am a very strong swimmer and have never been afraid of the water. I never cared to be in the water with Stingrays and once near these giants, I became a bit uneasy. The female photographer we had on our excursion was very rude and not at all friendly. The sandbar is normally about hip height, but the waves were coming well over my head. It was hard to enjoy myself with large waves coming in, slimy creatures rubbing and coming up to you and a strong current dragging you. This excursion is not made for children and they really should warn cruisers of the existing conditions. Read Less

Highlight of the trip. We went with stingraysailing with Captain Chip. Eco conscious outfitter. Very environmentally caring. The surf was crazy high so it was not as spectacular as last year yet still incredible. We were the first boat of the day to get to the sandbar so the stingrays were super happy (i.e. aggressive) to see us. The current tried to sweep me away as I was taking pictures and crew mate Chris had to haul me back. That was intense. Also, I was underwater without a snorkel when a stingray decided to land on my head. THAT was a panic - but how incredibly awesome would my obituary have been if it said "killed by a stingray?" I mean, I'm no Steve Irwin, but.... Read Less

Great time! You are taken out a few miles from shore to the sandbar, where the water is approximately waist deep (for adults). It was a windy day, so we did encounter some waves, that made it a bit difficult for the kids to keep their feet down as the guide instructed. Other than that, we had a blast. We got to encounter a bunch of sting rays, learned a whole lot about them, then get to feed and hold them. So awesome! Read Less

Stingrays were really cool.

Stingrays were really cool. There were several different groups there at the same time, so it got a little crowded. They made sure everyone got to hold a stingray.

My son and I did book our Grand Cayman excursion through Carnival - we did the "Stingray City/Tiki Beach" excursion and had a great time swimming with the stingrays. This is a great excursion for kids but the "Tiki Beach" was crowded and we had to rent an umbrella for $10. Watershoes were required in order to swim in the water because the bottom was too rocky so we left and went back to the ship. Read Less

Sailing out the sandbar on a catamaran was the best! There were about 25 people on our boat with Chip and Chris. Terrific sail and the stingrays came right up to them. Wonderful experience. Chip and Chris were very helpful and accommodating. Enjoyed laying on the "trampoline" over the water on the way out and back in. Snorkeling was very easy and lots of big fish. Highly recommend Stingray Sailing. Read Less
