Grand Cayman (Georgetown) Stingray Swim Excursion Reviews

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.
Wonderful interactions with numerous stingrays.
Sail Date: May 2015
Wonderful interactions with numerous stingrays. Fed them. Took pictures. Independent tour, Captain Marvins, only had a bout 12-14 people and they found a large, beautiful red starfish on the way back that we took pictures with.

Amazing experience! Highly recommend! Boat takes you to the stingray city & then on to snorkeling. Amazing to feed & hold stingrays. Captain Marvin's office is right off the cruise pier so very convenient!

This was a great excursion. We loved every minute of it. It was the perfect amount of time and allowed us to explore Cayman a little after the tour. You must go to Stingray City.

Staff was great on the stingray excursion.
Sail Date: May 2015
Staff was great on the stingray excursion. They get right in the water with you and interact with you and the stingrays for over an hour. I would recommend this excursion for any age group. The water was shallow and the sand was very nice.

We weren't going to do an excursion in Grand Cayman but once we got off the boat, we saw the great price on the sign for Stingray City and Snorkeling. We decided to do it. We were placed in a full size bus with no AC. FULL. Then we went to the Marina and got on a small boat. Although the tour guides on the boat were so great and nice, the boat was SUPER small for all the people on it. The motor was blowing out black smoke in all our faces so the boat ride was toxic! Stingray City was amazing. The snorkeling area had little to no fish and the waves were too strong to stay long. There were WAY too many people on the boat. Read Less

We wanted to take this excursion but feared the crowds on the Carnival excursion plus we wanted to save some money. Our group had 20 people and the boat had plenty of room. Non-alcoholic drinks were provided. The crew was great and helped make up for some other issues. The boat was fine but is showing it's age. They ran short of snorkels/masks which is a big problem. The life vests they handed out were the orange bulky kind found on the ship. Despite the issues we had a great time. The vendor just needs to upgrade his equipment. Read Less
