This was our second trip to Sting Ray City. On a trip two years ago we did a trip with another operator, who was fully booked when we called and we only the one day, so we went with Captain Marvin's. We were disappointed. While the boat is fine, the trip was lacklustre. I guess that that it lacked the... More

We recently had a chance to take the Captain Marvin's tour to Stingray city. IT WAS AMAZING. All the Stingrays, and then snorkeling in the reefs, the water was just so clear. We Loved it...well worth the time.

I've done Stingray City three times with Captain Marvin's. If I go again, it will be with Captain Marvin's again. The very first trip I took was the three stop trip with lunch at Rum Point. If you have a whole day you can allocate to Stingray City, this is the trip to take. We went conch diving on the... More

My friends and I decided to book a tour with Captain Marvin rather than our cruise ship because Captain Marvin offered a three stop trip at a fraction of the price. The office is located barely a 2 minute walk from the port. We were greeted by Anna who had all our paperwork. The weather was a little overcast and... More

So my wife and I elected to do a morning trip with them.We were waiting for pickup,15 minutes late I called, The original reservation was for 4 of us and we were driving over there, so I could understand the mix up. They arranged a... More

We had originally booked through Capt. Bryan's and when we arrived they said their boat was broken down, so they took us to Capt. Marvin's. The crew was very young and I was skeptical that it we would be a great trip. It was a windy wavy day but Stingray city was open, so we went there and to a... More

This was an excellent excursion. The staff was professional and knowledgeable. The snorkel was very good and swimming with the string ray's was outstanding. The staff made everyone feel at ease and no one felt rushed.

We loved our trip to Stingray City. We were on a cruise and booked outside of the cruise line to save some money and we weren't disappointed. The people were great - from the initial meeting after getting off the cruise ship, to the driver, to the crew on the ship. The conditions were a little rough the day we... More
