We did the Stingray City tour last summer and loved it! I thought the vessel itself was great, appeared brand new and we really enjoyed the ride to the sandbar. All participants were supplied snorkelling gear that you could see was disinfected and we were given tutorials prior to entering the water. Once in the water we snorkelled for a... More

We booked this through Carnival Cruise and my family had a blast. The excursion only took a couple of house so we had plenty of time to do some more exploring on Grand Cayman. The guide did a great job of teaching us about the Sting Rays and making some skittish members feel comfortable in the water with the Sting... More

I found this as a trip excursion for my Carnival Cruise. I am so happy we did this tour to the sandbar to swim with stingrays. The boat was very comfortable; you have the option to ride on the lower level in the shade or the deck on the second level to get some sun. The staff were courteous and... More

After boarding the open-air bus/boat, we took a short tour along the harbor coast before turning down the ramp into the water. It was a unique experience and included interesting commentary by the tour guide on various sites and the history of the island and the things we were seeing. It was a fun excursion that was unique to any... More

I absolutely loved our trip to Stringray city! The tour guides were extremely informative, friendly & you can tell they love what they do and especially love and care for the stingrays! Not only did I get to interact with free stingrays but I learned a lot about them. Truly something I will always remember and I would definitely go... More

My husband, 11 year old daughter and myself agreed that we all wanted to try swimming with stingrays on this trip. We arrived on the Carnival Paradise at the pier. We tendered in to port and waited about 20 minutes or so, before being able to start the excursion. Our guide, Mikey, led us out of the waiting area to... More

We took this tour from a Carnival cruise ship based on the novel opportunity to swim with stingrays as well as the advertised accessibility for the handicapped. What a fabulous experience! The excursion description was very specific as to the level of handicap possible (even though wheelchair-bound, a disabled person should be able to take a few steps with assistance),... More

Great crew. They made everyone very comfortable in the water. It was high tide so the water was a little deeper than usual. The boat has a wheelchair lift so it is completely doable for anyone that may not move well.

MarineLand is great for people who have trouble getting in and out of boats. The boats have extra large steps which helps people who have some trouble walking get in and out of the water. The staff is knowledgeable on not only sting rays but on the Cayman Islands. The whole crew was great!!!. This is my second time visiting... More
