I’m an English guy who fell in love with the Cayman Islands fifteen years ago, and I’ve lived here ever since, having recently gained my joint citizenship. I started Moby Dick Tours so that I could share with you some of the amazing experiences here in Cayman, especially the famous Stingray City, one of the most amazing places in the world.I saw the opportunity to bring professionalism and the highest standards of customer care to the tour industry here in Cayman, and together with my partner Richard, we have brought together the best people and the best equipment, to ensure your excursion with us will live on in your mind as one of the most special experiences you have ever had. I’ve made literally thousands of trips to Stingray City over the past ten years, but I never cease to be amazed and humbled by these beautiful creatures who choose to come and interact with us. And I’m sure you’ll feel the same, too. It gives me enormous pleasure to share the experience afresh, as I bring new people to this wonderful and unique place.As most of our clients come from visiting cruise ships, we know exactly what you need. So let us worry about getting you from the dock in own custom built bus, and back again safely in time for your sailing. That leaves you free to worry about nothing except having a fantastic time! « less

My husband and I visited Grand Cayman on our July cruise. I always like to book excursions through TA instead of the cruise ships. When we got off the ship, we found the owner with no problem, signed in and had about an hour or so to shop before we left for the excursion. I didn't count but I think... More

When with my wife and kids, and my father came along. the snorkel was not ideal for our young kids, but that was not why we came. The Stingrays were the main attraction and they did not disappoint. The tour company briefed us on how to behave with the rays, and provided good support to ensure a good encounter. The... More

Extremely professional, interesting, reasonably priced, very safe and not to be missed experience. Reef snorkeling and swimming with the stingrays were amazing. We felt sorry for the cruise excursions with boats packed with bodies, paying 2-3 times as much. Many people tried to swim over to our area because we had so many stingrays and they had none!

Stingray City was at the top of our must do list while visiting family in Cayman - we could not have chosen a better tour company to do it with. Mark and his crew and knowledgeable, funny and obviously love and appreciate the stingrays and their amazing home. Our experience at this magical place would not have been the same... More

The staff and crew were very knowledgeable and friendly. They treated us like friends/family. The stingray/snorkel tour was the highlight of our cruise. Can't wait to do it again!

We had been booked on another excursion. Due to the departure of our ship we had to switch tour companies. We really lucked out with getting placed on Moby Dick Tours. The captain and tour guides were extremely friendly. The boat was not crowded at all. If you looked around at some of the other tours people were tripping over... More

Booked the stingray city/snorkel tour and we had a great time. Both Mike's and John's knowledge of stingrays and the local marine life will amaze you. This is not another overcrowded tour boat. These guys do it right! Thanks for a great time.

Loved the tour. We had 21 people in our group. no complaints, lots of fun. However, never received the photo disks as promised. Cost $140.00. After I contacted the photographer, they "e-mailed" me the pictures. They were supposed to be mailed to seven addresses. I ha to copy and send to all the families. If not for that, I would... More

I think you must have the wrong company, we don't take pictures or allow photographers on our boat ever. We help people take there own pictures with there own cameras. Sometimes the only interaction people get on other boats with the stingray's is when they are having there photograph taken. We would rather help our customers develop there own relationships...

I booked way in advance with Mark. He actually gave us a better rate than other tours since there were no other bookings at the time. He offered to take us to Rum Point as well, however we decided to do that another day. Mark and his partner were great, we did not have a large group, however we arrived... More

If your wanting to see and touch the wild stingray's of the ocean, this is the tour to go on!!! Mark is very professional and knowledgable in operating this excursion. My family had a excellent time on the tour with the stingrays. Not only do you spend time with the rays, you also get to snorkel by a reef that... More
