We have gone snorkeling with Dexter for years. He is our favorite captain. He picks you up at your hotel or condo and takes you to the marina. Dexter makes sure everyone has a good time and is a great joke teller. If you go, have one for him. His boat is a catamaran and he motors out to stingray... More

Dexter and Astor run a very laid back and relaxing tour but very professional and safety conscious at all times. We bypassed the cruise tour of Sting Ray City and signed on with Dexter when we docked in the Caymans. We are soooooo glad we did. Dexter provided a throughly enjoyable morning of snorkelling and visiting the Stingrays. It was... More

Caring, interesting and a great host! Dexter and his crew are awesome! They care deeply about the stingrays, the coral and the guests! It is amazing to play with and feed the Rays. They don't rush you at all and allow plenty of time for photos! After the stingrays, you get back on the boat, have a drink and boat... More

Dexter was referred by our condo management, and I'm very glad he was. Others had recommended a private excursion to stingray city because of the craziness in the group tours. Dexter and his friend Astor are multigenerational native Caymanians, and are so much more authentic and friendly than the other tour guides we observed on our outing. Stingray city is... More

Dexter is a great guy, keen to make sure his guests enjoy the full experience. Not only did he do his best to get my kids patting a stingray in a photo, but also he helped manage other people's requirements, from poor swimmers to tricky kids. All in all, a great experience.

I highly recommend Dexter's Fantasea Tours! From the beginning, Dexter returned my emails promptly. I had a lot of questions and he answered every one quickly. His price was very reasonable. Dexter met us at the cruise terminal exactly when he said he would be there. We were delighted with the morning excursion to Stingray City. We had 13 teenagers... More

This was the best tour we did on our whole cruise. My wife and I just loved holding the stingray. Haven't stopped telling our friends about it. Snorkeling afterwards was also lots of fun. Highly recommend Dexter.

Dexter and his assistant, Astor, made everyone feel welcome. By the end of the trip, we felt like old friends. He regaled us with stories and had an easy good sense of humor. Free water and sodas were provided. The boat was in good shape and its bathroom was clean. Dexter guided us on how to hold the stingrays at... More

13 people in all. Wonderful trip with great attention to all on the boat. Special attention to ensure both enjoyment, and also as importantly, safety. Going back ASAP!!
