What can I say...crystal clear water, huge Rays that you can touch and feed. A wonderful way to spend half a day with family and children of all ages. You can take your own camera but the professional pictures were too good to pass up

I'm not 100% sure, but I think there are two places that get lumped as one. Stingray City is someplace scuba divers go, and the Stingray Sandbar is where you can wade and snorkel. We went to the Sandbar. Being cynical, I had images of tired, abused stingrays, and an exit through a gift shop offering plush stingrays. Not so.... More

This was my favorite part of the whole trip. I probably would have selected a different operator to take us out there if I had had more time to plan, as I thought the group was too large and the snorkel locations on the way back kind of sucked. But Stingray City itself was amazing, something I will remember forever!

We did the scuba dive at Stingray City. Water temp was 80 so a 3mm shorty was comfortable. Only about 12' deep & we formed a circle (about 12 divers) on the bottom so the stingrays could swim around us to feed on the squid we would offer them. The dive was bout 40 minutes & you get a little... More

We booked the Stingray City and Snorkel tour on April 14, 2014. The Stringray City trip was fantastic. In a 40 person group but it did not seem too large. If you have a waterproof camera bring it so someone can take pics of you during the Stingray kissing part. Then we went snorkeling only 5 minutes away from the... More

We took this tour with Aquarius tours and highly recommend them as we only had 13 people on the boat and they spent extra time at each location. They payed special attention to the kids and made sure they were having fun. They picked us up from our condo, provided drinks and pizza and free pictures of the whole day.... More

We took a Captain Marvin trip out the Stingray City and it was amazing. We did a couple of stops before we got there, and it was worth the wait. I felt like a kid in the candy store. I was AMAZING! I would have gone back another day if I could have. I laughed so much, was amazed at... More

We took an excursion from our cruise ship to stingray city while at Grand Cayman in April 2014. First we boarded a bus about 15 minutes from the dock, then boarded a boat to take out to see the stingrays. The boat ride to the stingrays was about an 1 hour ride. There were about 70-80 people on our boat.... More

The tour guides were very friendly and funny and they really knew theyre stuff about stingrays. They told us the rules and then we had fun. You can snorkel and swim with the rays thwy let you hold them, and you kiss them(: which is an unforgettable experience.i reccomend this excursion 100%!!!
