Our family cruised to Grand Cayman first week of August. Found this excursion on tripadvisor a couple of weeks before leaving and shot Michelle an email questioning availability. She was prompt in answering and booking was so simple through Paypal. In total we had 13 family members so there was plenty of room on the boat. Michelle and Captain Chip... More

I think we could have been on the same tour as "baseballpilotwife" because, honestly, I felt the same way. On the positive side, the booking was very professional, easy to do online and the correspondence was excellent. The pick-up was prompt and right on time. The boat was very nice and the other customers were friendly and game for the... More

This is our second trip with Captain Chip. The first was 5 years ago. We enjoyed it so much, we drove over an hour from the East End to do it again. We had 7 in our party and there was 22 on the boat the day we toured. We hit StingRay Sand Bar and then snorkeled at the reef.... More

I am not sure if we caught Chip on an off day or what, but we found his tour to be very "meh". The stingrays themselves were a great experience as well as the snorkeling, but he barely spoke a word he entire trip. He didn't even introduce his photographer and right hand man. The web site talked about the... More

We had a great time with Chip and Catherine. Chip met us as we got off our cruise ship in George Town and took us and the other folks to his sailboat. We went out to experience the stingrays first. That was a fun experience we had not done before. It was nice to do this in a fairly small... More

Great day snorkeling and holding stingrays with Dexter's Fantasea catamaran tour. The reef was beautiful and the stingrays were numerous. Our family of 5, children ages 5, 11, and 14 had an awesome time. Dexter's tour was small, laid back, and helpful. There are no bells and whistles, it felt a lot less touristy and more like being out on... More

We were on a cruise with a stop at Grand Cayman. Based upon reviews on trip advisor, we decided to skip the ship excursion to Stingray City and join Stingray Sailing. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had! I requested information about the tour on a Saturday night about 9:30 pm. Within thirty minutes, Chip had... More

We did a private afternoon charter with Chip and Michelle. We did Stingray Sandbar of course and also coral gardens and barrier reef. The boat is huge and can easily fit 40-50 people. The stingrays love Chip and swam away from the other boats to play with him when we arrived. For a snack we had fresh watermelon Chip cut... More

We had a great trip on Chip and Michelle’s catamaran to Stingray City. They picked us up at our condo and took us to the harbor where we departed. We were advised to take the 1pm tour since most of the Cruise Ship guests would have to go back to their boats in the afternoon, leaving stingray city less crowded.... More

We booked a tour with Stingray sailing after A MOUNTAIN of research. Michelle was AMAZING with communication, the best I have EVER had. When we arrived in Grand Cayman it was POURING...I MEAN POURING the whole time. Capt Chip was waiting for us there in the rain, to personally tell us the trip was cancelled, I appreciated the fact that... More
