As a SCUBA instructor on Cayman I've been here many times. It is a truly unique experience to have such an intimate encounter with this beautiful creature. Normally I'm not for the 'staged' wildlife interactions but being a long time admirer of stingrays this is something different and unforgettable. Do this trip with me and you will also hopefully learn... More

if you are ever in the cayman islands i highly recommend a trip to stingray island. it was nothing short of fantastic. you actually get to swim with the rays and depending on the tour guides feed them as well. a truly wonderful experience.

Great fun, just respect the stingrays. We used Captain Marvin and they were great. Can get very busy when lots of cruise ships are in so try and go when it is quiet.

Make sure to pick your charter to Stingray city with care. This is our second time out there and we have gone 2/2 on charters. Captain Marvin's was who we leveraged the first time and then splurged going with Red Sail the second. Red Sail was the overall better experience but you pay for it as well. Other charters out...

How could you refuse? The rays were very friendly even when you didn't have food for them. We jet skied out with Ebanks and enjoyed our guide explaining their mannerisms and body structure. The large females loved the guide and spent a lot of time kissing him !!! He'll be very lucky. Fun time on the sandbar with the rays.... More

After reading several reviews we decided to do Stingray City & from recommendation we did it with Captain Marvin's and I'm glad that we did. We walked to their office - which for us was directly opposite our hotel. Here we paid for the tour and were taken to the marina/quay where our boat was waiting for us. We were... More

We went with Red Sail and had a great afternoon. I didn't go in with the stingray's or snorkel but both my husband and daughter did and had a great time. We were fortunate there were not many on the boat so nice relaxed atmosphere. I just enjoyed going along for the ride and view. NB On a Saturday you... More

Stingray City is a lot of fun. There were several boats and people in the water and there were a bunch of stingrays to see, feed, and touch. Our guide even got one to kiss him! Because the stingrays are very friendly, it is a bit unnerving when you first get in the water. They will come right up to... More

Last time we did this (i forget who with) we did the stingrays, including all feeding them, then went to the reefs edge to go snorkelling. This trip was with red sail, we didn't get to feed the stingrays or go snorkelling. We did spend a lot of time at rum point which was nice though.

We booked this excursion with Red Sail and it was amazing. We came to stingray city early, before all the other boats and we did bit the crowds. It was fantastic to be able to swim and touch the rays. The Red Sail stuff was very knowledgable and showed us how to handle rays. Highly, highly recommended.
