We wanted a small group tour of Sting Ray City without a huge price tag. Our dive operator recommended Captain Clinton and it turned out to be a great experience. We went out with four people and Captain Clinton on his older, slow boat but he knew the spots and how to time it to miss the crowds that can... More

This is an experience not to miss. They are soft beautiful friendly creatures and obviously very smart. We went with red sail and it included a snorkel but the water was a little to choppy to enjoy that. What they did do is decide to do the snorkel first so that when we got to the stingrays there were fewer... More

If you've never been to Cayman this is an experience of a lifetime to interact and feed sting rays. It is amazing! Went with Cayman Adventure tours. Captain Chris is awesome. He took us there and then snorkeling and he showed us a morey eel that was amazing! Don't miss this excursion from your cruise ship!

This was the second time spent swimming with the stingrays. What an incredibly awesome experience. Captain Eddy was very entertaining and the crew members extremely patient especially with the young children.

This place unique! You MUST go if you ever visit Cayman. Stingrays are wild animals that usually fear humans. They would not attack unless fear in danger. However the stingrays at this place LOVE humans (mainly because they associate people with food because every time a boat stops they feed the rays). They are super friendly! They will approach you...

Wow, I just loved that experience, even with the multiple boats and many tourists. And even though the weather was pretty crappy with clouds and a bit chilly. Still just amazing! I can say that I was annoyed that they charged for drinks. Surely at the hefty price tag, they could have thrown in a 1-beer drink ticket or something.... More

This was our second time at String Ray city with Captain Marvin Tours. We chose to go on a day that there were no cruise ships in port, because when the "boat people" are ashore it is absolutely ridiculously crowded! It was a beautiful day, and the water was relatively calm, perfect conditions for being around the stingrays. You are... More

Definitely worth a trip- u can go fairly cheaply with captain Marvins or pay more if you want to include other things like a snorkel site etc. I won't write too much as it's worth doing and is an experience you won't forget- would Recommend Red Sail as well- I have done this trip a fair few times- if u...

We just returned from our cruise which included a stop in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. I wanted to swim with the sting rays and did a lot of research on tours. I hope my comments here help others. The tours sold by the cruise lines are not only pricy but they stick 50 or more people on their boats and it... More

I have been to Sting Ray City twice, once in calm, warm water and secondly in cold, rough water. I loved it both times. I had no idea the sting rays were so large and that they would be so friendly. It was an unbelievable experience. My husband, who is afraid of the water, enjoyed it, too. His love of... More
