My mom and did the Stingray City Sandbar Snorkel tour and it was AMAZING! Naturally we were nervous at first with the sting rays.... but the tour guides put as at ease! The Sting Rays were gentle, sweet, and genuinely excited to have us all there! By far the best day of our Cruise... I would do it again in... More

Our family did the Stingray City Sandbar Snorkel tour. The experience was amazing! The crew is top-notch! They really make sure that you get up close and personal with the stingrays. My children were nervous, but they helped alleviate their fears and very slowly introduced them to the rays. Our favorite was Frisbee - a female ray who no longer... More

I booked the Sting ray excursion through the Carnival Breeze and had been looking forward to it for months. Unfortunately the seas were very rough and some of my party barely made it over to the island by tender without getting sick. The Marineland Tour operator advised everyone the water was very choppy that day and gave us the option... More

I have been on two other Sting Ray City tours and by far this one was the best. What made it special? We were among the first to arrive at the sandbar where the Ray's gather for feeding and smooches. They swam around us lightly brushing against our legs to say hello. Then the crew gave us the story of... More

Our trip to Stingray City in this tour provider was really fun. Captain Mikey and his crew were super friendly and helpful. The boat was very comfortable with bar and restrooms - and the special entry/exit steps at the stern were super easy to negotiate for everyone entering the water. The stingrays are truly amazing and are the most docile... More

The guides on this excursion really pushed everyone on leaving a positive review, but I prefer to leave an honest one. Though there is nothing "deluxe" about this tour, I still give it a good rating. The boat is very nice and does boast a great walk out platform into the water. The guides were great. Drinks are 8 dollar... More

This is really as good as it gets, and I've been to Stingray City many times. The boat is great- super easy if you have physical limitations or little kids. There is no ladder, just easy stairs. What makes this tour is the crew. Amazing, amazing guys that genuinely care about the rays. We took our four year old daughter,... More

We had a great time with MarineLand Tours. They were very informative about the Cayman Islands and the stingrays we were with. They explained the differences with the stingrays; were were able to hold the stingrays, have our pictures taken - they were very accommodating! They also answered any questions we had. Would definitely go back and do another tour... More

In the cruise excursion listing it showed swimming with the stingrays from a beach. This is not a beach tour. You are taken off the coast to a reef that is really shallow but safe and white sand (no rocks). You get into the water off the back of the boats (steps) and is about chest deep but in shallowest...
