I would love to give it a higher number but the waters were so rough you could hardly enjoy being with the stingrays. My 5 yr old daughter almost floated away even though we were holding on to her. My 7 year old had a hard time do to big waves. Couldn't snorkel do to the water conditions also it... More

This was a great trip. We held,petted,and kissed stingrays. Very unique experience.The guides at Captain Marvin's knew the stingrays and named them. They were comfortable with them so that helped us be comfortable with them.

Not quite what we expected but how educational and cool! We took jet skis out to Stingray City - the water was super choppy that day and the ride was rough - too rough! My daughter and I banged heads and I had a black eye the rest of the vacation! Take a boat there!

We went with Tours Cayman. They have been in business for over 20 years and were $10 cheaper than others and also gave an additional discount for cash payment. We were picked up at our condo and taken to the pier. First stop was a reef and the fish were plenty and amazing. Stingray City was just beautiful. Nice to... More

Great fun for everyone. Sting rays are like the dogs of the sea. They like to be fed and petted (underneath). You stand waist deep in calm water.

if you've never touched, held or fed a stingray before, you have to do this. I don't know anywhere else you can have an experience like this. Go!

Moby Dick tour was excellent & guides care about rays which speaks volumes of them!!! We had 5 in our group ages 15-42. We all fully enjoyed our time with the rays:)

We used Captain Marvin's outfit, and it was a great experience - everyone aboard got to feed a stingray, and have their picture taken holding (and kissing!) one, AND there were two additional snorkeling stops that were fabulous: a coral reef, and a fish garden, where the fish literally ate squid from our hands, and a guide lured a moray...

The little boat that we took out to the sand bar was a little scary but at the end of the trip we made it safe and sound. The stingray were plenty and we feed them, petted them, and held them, out Chinese guide was so great and she was very caring and compassionate about her job and the animals.... More

Much more enjoyable diving with the stingrays than simply snorkeling, in my opinion, but I'm sure everyone has a great time regardless. These guys are some very kool creatures, and that moral knows he's struck a gold mine when it comes to free treats. A very relaxing side trip.
