Description: Stingray City boat tours in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. I’m Mark Button...
Stingray City boat tours in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. I’m Mark Button, and I would like to warmly welcome you aboard Moby Dick Tours. 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!

Friendly and informative crew. The guy screwed up 4 of our photos which was disappointing. We waited ONE HOUR for a party of 5 that never showed up - not good at all, especially when you only have about 7 hours in port. If they took a deposit perhaps people would be more inclined to show up , this is... More

We went on this excursion in 2014 & was so impressed that we brought our whole family back in 2015! We just got back from another great excursion with Mark Button (Moby Dick Tours). We met on the pier as promised, checked in and headed by comfortable bus to the waters. Along the way, the bus driver gave some interesting... More

The difference with Moby Dick is personal attention because of the smaller group size. The boat crew made an effort to talk to everyone onboard (about 25 people). They passed out equipment and gave a full instructions while heading to the site. Captain Mark saved the day by providing a replacement clip for my personal mask/snorkel. There was plenty of...

I have been on numerous Stingray City Snorkel excursions and this was by for the worst yet. We were a family of 5 with two younger children and did not organize snorkel equipment for us prior to reaching snorkel destination. When we arrived to snorkel we then asked numerous times for snorkel equipment for our family but they had run... More

I’m confused at this review because it’s nothing like the format on our boat, so I’m wondering if you went with us or not? I personally go on all the tours and don't recollect this. We always do our briefings on the way out and give out snorkel equipment on the journey out without exception, two of our staff go... More

Thank-you so much for a fabulous time. Swimming with the stingrays was the highlight of our vacation. We enjoyed your talk at the beginning of the tour on how to deal with the stingrays & we just loved the little plush example you used. The amount of time you spent in the water with us holding them, kissing them, allowing... More

It was so fun to be surrounded by these beautiful gentle animals. The tour guides also caught some and held them so we could touch and feed them. The cost was half what the cruise ship charged for the same trip. As we were returning they asked if anyone was interested in stopping at 7 Mile Beach, and when we... More

My family and I had a great time on this Snorkel/Stingray Swim. The Bus ride was pleasant with our guide Peter telling us all about the Island. Peter does make a big deal about putting aerosol sunscreen on before you get on the boat (so deck doesn't get slippery) which everyone did. We didn't put sunscreen on between the snorkeling... More

Wife and I came to the Cayman Islands and booked this last minute. The owner called me and verified the times and the cost of it. We showed up and the staff was amazing. They gave us all the information and gear we needed to enjoy the trek out there. We went snorkeling for about 45 minutes near a ship... More

Money Dick Tour to Stingray City and snorkeling was a great choice for us. They were very organized from the bus trip to the boat ride to see the stingrays. It was one of the best excursions I have been on. The stringrays were amazing and the water was like no other. The snorkeling following the visit with the stingrays... More
