Standing waist-deep in turquoise water (Caribbean sea!) with stingrays gently brushing past was amazing. MarineLand Tours provided instructions and snorkelling gear so that my family and I could get a better close-up view of these impressive creatures. Never experienced anything like it and it was the highlight of my week-long trip to the Caribbean.

We spent 50 minutes in 16 feet of water with the stingrays and I have never had so much fun!!! We played with them and got some awesome pictures of us feeding them, petting them and having them swimming all around us. I am amazed that my regulator stayed in my mouth as I was laughing so much.

This trip is a MUST when visiting Grand Cayman. You get to swim with with stingrays in shallow water in the middle of the sea. I fed one and was not scared, they are cute animals. Very often mankind is a danger to animals and species. Here it is the other way around: due to the fact that people swim... More

We took a friends sailboat out to Stingray city and anchored just off the sandbar. What a blast! This was the best part of the trip for all seven of us! The water colors are amazing and the stingrays are incredible, such a beautiful experience. This is a can't miss activity on GC. Our 6yo son was swimming with the... More

What a surprise this little day trip was! You are dropped off on a sand bar in the middle of the ocean and the water is waist high. You can stand out and the sting rays flock to you. They love to be petted and they swim right up to you. We took our 2 and 4 year old -... More

Highlight of our trip! I think it's much better than swimming with dolphins but that's all relative. Definitely worth the $90 for a 3-hr itinerary. Feeding the stingrays were a treat! You need to do this if you go to GCM!

We took Dexter's Fantasea Tour. Dex was a great host with offering of sodas and diet water! Our trip started at 1:30 sailing on a 38' Trimaran. "If you don't enjoy yourself, you don't pay." Therse stingrays didn't fit in my camera lens! I got to hold one, kiss one and got a back rub. They are so soft and... More

So glad we made it to Sting Ray City! Do not skip this! We went on the early morning tour with White Sand Water Sports (Captain Chris). We were the second boat out. The rays were absolutely fabulous. Everyone got their 7-year good luck kiss. Plus, an eagle ray showed up and put on a stunning aerial show! Go early... More

I have to admit, I was more excited to see the stingrays more than the Panama Canal!! I loved it. After a short boat trip, you come to a shallow area, slightly crowded, but organized. Each person got to kiss, hug, and experience a back rub. Kind of goofy, but made great pics! I loved it. The water was so... More

This place is so amazing! The water is shallow and the rays come right to you. They are very docile. Talk about getting in touch with nature! Holding a sting ray should be on the top of your To Do List if visiting Grand Cayman!
