The reviews were spot on. Kevin picked us up from our hotel promptly and drove us to the marina. The experience itself was fantastic but was made better by Chip and Kevin on the sailboat. When we return to Grand Cayman, we will certainly use this company again and I highly recommend them. Correspondence via email ahead of the trip... More

Within just a few minutes of stopping, the captain of our small boat was greeted by about 15-20 stringrays, many that he knows by name! I think we had about 12 people on out boat. There were some boats on the sandbar that must've had about 60. We were able to anchor at the far end of the sand bar... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The captain, 1st mate and photographer were very nice and the experience was perfect. There were about 20 people total on the boat which left lots of room to spread out and enjoy the water. We had at least 2 stingrays per person if not more. The stingrays seemed to recognize... More

We just got back from a Carnival cruise to Grand Cayman. We chose to book our own excursion rather than book through Carnival. We were NOT disappointed! Chip took us out on the beautiful ship to Stingray City, We fed the stingrays, snorkeled with them, then went snorkeling on a beautiful reef. Our trip was fantastic! I would highly recommend...

Just got back from our trip to see the stingrays w/ Stingray Sailing & didn't want to miss an opportunity to brag about this trip! Chip & Kevin were the consummate professionals & showed the 10 of us on board a wonderful trip. As others have written, the stingrays congregate around their boat while the other more party boats are... More

I cannot say enough great things about this operation. Michelle answered my inquiries promptly and throughly. Once we arrived, Chip was waiting for us, even though we were early. He was professional, courteous, knowledgable and fun. The boat is awesome and perfect for this adventure. Once we were at the sandbar we had a dozen stingrays with us while other... More

Planning our day with Stingray Sailing online ahead of our trip was easy to do. Chip was waiting well in advance of our tour the morning we got off our cruise ship in the meeting spot. The catameran was awesome and although he can fit more people on, he chooses not to fill to capacity like many of the other... More

Cruising to Grand Cayman again with friends new to cruising. Specifically wanted this port in the itinerary so our friends could go on the excursion with Stingray Sailing to swim with the stingrays and snorkel the reef. Our friends were amazed and we enjoyed our time even more than the our last trip with Chip and crew.
