I booked and paid for this tour online prior to our arrival. I wondered if this was a good idea later on since the ship tour was cheaper, and there was no guarantee of good weather. We met at the spot indicated by our email. There were 3 other couples from our ship. The driver indicated that at the last... More

We were looking to book an independent tour in Grand Cayman rather than being piled into a boat with 50 others disembarking from RCC Freedom of Seas. I was thrilled to contact Michelle from Stingray Sailing. She answered my questions and even suggested a great beach to meet our friends who were in Grand Cayman for the week. We met... More

When looking up things to do in the Caymans, it became apparent that stingray city was a must! We wanted to do it right and thought that a tour with a smaller crowd would make for a better experience.... that's how we found stingray sailing. The whole experience was great! The booking was easy and they picked us up right... More

These guys are clearly best in class. This was quickly apparent when we got out to the sandbar and saw the other operators, who had crowded their boats and some didn't appear to have basic technical boat operation skills. Captain Chip was a real pro, even graciously helped out another boat in desperate need, with little negative commentary. Real class... More

This was our 2nd time out with Stingray Sailing. First time was in 2011 on a cruise ship stop. We returned this year for a week long stay on the island and booked Captain Chip again. The whole crew from Captain Chip, to Kevin and Michelle who does the booking do a fantastic job.We had originally had our excursion booked... More

So we got into port via a tender boat (which was very well organized from our ship) and found that our guide for the day would not show up until it was time to go. We spent an hour or so walking around just outside the port but none of the stores here were our cup of tea as they... More

There were three of us in our group. We were staying at a condo on the island and we were picked up right outside our condo. Yes, they were a little late and we were sitting outside waiting. However, we could have waited inside and they would have called us when they were close. The reason they were late is... More

My husband and I took booked with Chip with Stingray Sailing for Feb. 10, 2015. Let me tell you what a wonderful time we had!

We booked this tour before we left on our cruise. Our group included 6 and I believe the whole tour had around 15 people or so. I emailed them and they responded promptly with all the information on how to hold our reservation on PayPal and where to meet them on the Pier. They are very easy to find and... More

Captain Chip is awesome! I booked based on reviews here on TA and was so glad I did! We went 1 year ago this month in Feb. 2014 and it's never too late to leave a good review. Back in 2010 we went on a "family" cruise on Carnival, and while I wanted to go to Stingray City, I was... More
