Don't miss this! I love stingrays. We've done this attraction many times over the last 12 years. We can't get enough. These are wonderful gentle creatures. Don't let the media scare you. This is a MUST experience while you are on Grand Cayman.

We visited Stingray City in August and had a great trip out with Captain Clinton. We were picked up promptly from our condo and then took a short ride to the dock to board the boat. As it was low season plus we had timed our visit to Stingray city when we knew there were no cruise ships in town,... More

Truly unique experience. It takes around 25 minutes to get out in the bay where the sandbar is and even so far out the water is crystal clear... BEAUTIFUL. When you first get off the boat it's a little scary with stingrays all around you but the guides are wonderful at making you feel at ease and allowing you to... More

My family and I visited the Caymans Islands in August and we to String Ray City with Capt Ebanks. He was kind, funny and courteous. His boat was clean and well taken care of. He even let the kids go up top and "drive" a bit. His photographer Leon got us great shots in the water and was a bargain... More

This is the second time my wife and I have visited Stingray City and it is a great excursion. We were picked up promptly from the ship and took a short van ride to the launching dock for our jet skis. The ride out is around 20 minutes and then you reach the sand bar. The water is beautiful and... More

The boat ride there was fast, the water was crystal clear, our guide was the best, never did I think I would swim with sting rays, but I mustered up my courage and in I went. The water was only chest deep, I am 5 ft 2 in, but with the waves, I had to keep jumping or get a... More

While some on our excursion got a bit squeamish in the waters if you listen to the guides it is a really cool experience. I can hear Sue laughing out loud when the first big ray swept by and then began its beautiful side roll past us. Memories of a lifetime. Glad we went.

This is a great site to experience an up close and personal interaction with stingrays. For an unforgettable excursion, you can take either a trip to the sandbar, where you can stand in waste deep water or you can take a scuba trip and feed and observe the stingrays while sitting on the ocean floor in 10 feet of water....

If you are staying in Grand Cayman find a tour that will take you here early in the morning before all the cruise ship excursions arrive. It is a great experience but it gets really crowded with people when the ships are in. Our 12 year old grandson enjoyed bringing along his dive mask so he could look underwater at... More

Be cautious when doing this excursion with small kids depending on the water conditions. We had two kids in our group and they could not get in the water on the particular day we went due to the rough waters. It is a good idea to check to see what the water conditions are before booking this excursion if possible.... More
