We had a trip to Sting Ray City , this time also with grandkids 1 and 3. It was a great trip and everyone got to pet sting rays. We then went to Starfish Point for first time. Anchored in shallow water near the beach and huge starfish were everywhere. It was great photo time for the kids and a... More

This was my second trip to Stingray City and it is truly a unique experience that should not be missed while you are on Cayman. For this trip our group booked a private charter with Seven Seas Charters, which I highly recommend. Going with a small group is so much better that taking one of the huge boats with 50+... More

Our entire family really enjoyed this experience. We booked the trip through Red Sail Water Sports, who were fantastic to work with. It was an amazing experience to have the Sting Rays swimming around you. They are truly gentle creatures and are so beautiful to watch. I would highly recommend it.

I went with my 4 year old who had a great time and an experience to remember. Make sure to get life vest before you leave the hotel as the life vests on boat are not always perfect. Also, bring goggles for the kids.

a lot of fun getting close to menacing-looking yet really gentle creatures. The guides were really informative.

This is an amazing experience! If you are staying on the Cayman Island, wait until the cruise ships leave to avoid the crowd. We went on the weekend and there was only 4 or 5 other boats at the stingray bar, so it was not very crowded. The sandbar is pretty shallow and my 8 y.o. had no problem standing... More

Great fun with the puppies of the sea. Catch it in the morning before it gets crowded. We went with White Sands and had a great time and was back at the dock by 9:30-10:00

I loved it! The sting rays are amazing. I felt sort of bad holding them, but they seemed to be ok with it. It is a very cool experience. If you are not a good swimmer don't worry! The water is shallow and waist deep, so you stand the whole time!

I was not initially interested in doing this but it turned out to be very fun. We had good weather. Our tour guide(Capt Marvins) did a great job of helping to catch and hold the sting ray; feed them; and simply admire them. It was definitely worth the time to go do this.
