We had a fantastic triple trip which included playing and feeding the stingrays on Captain Marvin’s. The staff was very professional and friendly. We also went on a reef to snorkel and a spot with lots of fish and got some great picture with feeding them squid

My wife and I and another couple took a shore excursion from Carnival Cruiselines to this attraction. HIGHLY enjoyable and a must for anyone visiting Grand Cayman. Check the excursion before you arrive to ensure you get one of the better-rated companies to take you out. There were some pretty rickety, overcrowded boats out there.

These poor animals have been trained to be fed by these boat tour guides to the point of becoming aggressive. I got BITTEN by one of them...thank god they dont have teeth but was still extremely painful. I am aware it was not the animals fault but the conditioning they have been submitted to. I see this as abuse...by changing... More

This is a great morning or afternoon out. You are taken by boat to a shallow pool out at sea. The Stingrays gather as they see the boat. The experience is amazing. The Rays swim around you and some of them are big. You can hold them and feed them. They are very gentle and amazing to see - take... More

We went on a day trip with Captain Charlies while in port in Grand Cayman on the Carnival Magic in August 2014. We had an amazing time! Our guide was Mikey! He is from Grand Cayman and was an absolutely great guide. We had the best day with him and he made our first time there so fun. We hope... More

Browse an hour into the ocean in a small boat and dive in the shallow waters,transparente,green hue color as never seen before on a sandbar in the middle of nowhere.Wait for the arrival of dozens of stingrays who seem eager to make contact with humans. You can kiss them, caress them and allow them to make a back massage. This... More

I booked a tour with Sun Rays Tours in July 2014 - They took us by catamaran out to Stingray City where you stand in crystal clear water (3-4ft) while stingrays go swimming by. The tour folks will grab one and let you hold and feed them. They are quite docile and clearly are used to being handled 7 days... More

Came here as part of a cruise excursion. Traveled in a boat 30 minutes into the middle of the ocean between Grand Cayman and another one of the islands, to a sand bar where all the stingrays come to be fed... No need of snorkling gear since the sand bar is only 4 feet deep. You do need a nice... More

My family went on this excursion based on the hotel booking agent. We had a fabulous trip. The captain and his first mate gave us information on the stingray and a wonderful experience especially for our young children. They provided drinks. First mate, Leon, took great pictures of all of us in the water with the stingrays. They also take... More

I was skeptical as it seemed so touristy, but it really was the highlight of our trip. Go when cruise ships are not in town and head out early if possible. When we went, only 2 boats were at the site and it was amazing. Kids and adults loved it. Memorable.
