I wish I remembered the name of our guide - she is from Argentina. She made the trip! She was knowledgeable, patient and so personable! We absolutely loved the catamaran ride and, of course, greatly enjoyed the sting ray experience. We booked through Carnival and it was well worth the money. I'd recommend it for anyone, young or old.

Using pre-paid wi-fi minutes and my time while still on board a cruise that stopped in Grand Cayman because this trip was disappointing. I am a seasoned traveller and hate to see others taken advantage of, hence the quick review. This operator misleads by stating that snorkeling will take place, when it does not. Nice catamaran, but the deckhand, spent... More

I'm still in awe from this experience. It was a pleasant ride on the catamaran through the most clear, brilliant water you can imagine. Once we got to the "Stingray City" the staff came around the boat and talked to us all about how to handle the stingrays. They were very clear on how to be safe and how to... More

Sailed in on Carnival Valor and this was the one excursion we were most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. Two adults two teens - this is a not a booze cruise, it was a pleasant motor out and sail back on a spacious catamaran. Lots of info from staff to prepare you for the experience delivered to...

We did this shore excursion off the Carnival Paradise cruise to Cayman Islands and Cozumel. We had a great experience! The crew was so nice, so incredibly informative and absolutely want you to have an amazing time! You can tell that they love what they do--they "know" the stingrays, what each of them like, and they seem to enjoy the... More

The Allura team took such great care of us! We could not have asked for a better day in the water. I was really scared about swimming with the stingrays, but the crew on board really set my expectations where they should be and helped me get used to the animals. Captain Jax and the Happy Snaps crew made our... More

Three crew members took us out to see stingrays on a catamaran and all three were so friendly and amiable. The ride out and back was lovely and the crew were nothing short of professional and fun at the same time. We all had a blast, (six of us, ages 16 to 63), and would recommend this company!
