Hubby and I have visited the stinray city a few times but were with friends that had never been there! Stingray Sailing was the best tour we have ever been on! Directions were great! Communication before arriving was spot on! Would sail with them again!

Prior to our cruise I spent A LOT of time reading reviews and researching every excursion for our vacation. After reading all of the reviews for Stingray Sailing and several others I decided to go with Chip. My research did not lead me wrong. The catamaran could easily have held WAY more people but our group size was only 22.... More

As we watched the giant boats flood in to see the stingrays we were so thankful for booking with Stingray Sailing. Chip is an awesome guy, and when we arrived we were immediately surrounded by 20 or so stingrays! He made you feel comfortable and our entire family loved it! The snorkeling is subpar but i still give it 5... More

Great tour to Stingray City with Chip and Buster. I highly recommend this small group-personal service tour and snorkel trip. Don't waste your time on a boat with a hundred people! Five stars!

We took a Royal Caribbean cruise over Christmas and was not able to book the stingray excursions through the ship due to my procrastination. I am always a little hesitant to book trips outside of the cruise line due to timelines. After seeing the great reviews and knowing this was something we really wanted to do, I took a chance...

Captain Chip is amazing and we try to book our cruise itinerary to include Cayman Islands just so we can do this. The water is beautiful and the wild stingrays are amazing and swim right between your legs. I have done this exertion with my two daughters since they were 5 and 7 years old. It is always the highlight... More

As with other reviewers, can't say enough about Chip and Katherine, waters were a bit rough but they adapted well and made sure everyone had a great time. We ended up with a total of 17 people and when you see some of the group sizes on some of the other operators you will really appreciate this. Just sailing on... More

My wife and I had visited Stingray City earlier in the year with another tour operator. When we visited again it was on a cruise stop with our two adult daughters and our previous tour operator was not available. He recommended Stingray Sailing and we are so glad he did. Chip and Buster did an outstanding job with our family... More

Chip was exactly where he said he would be when we got off our ship. We were transported quickly to where the boat was that took us on our excursion. Both Chip & Kathryn were great in taking us out to where we swam with the sting rays. You could tell they enjoyed what they did & enjoyed showing us... More

Can't say enough about Chip. If you get the chance to do a tour with Chip do it. We arrived at the port and checked in early as recommended in our email. Since we had a party of 12 we were the only party booked and he took us to the boat where our adventure started. We were some of... More
