This was mine and my husband's first time snorkeling and swimming with sting rays. It was such a blast! I was a little bit of a chicken with the rays but my husband wasn't and it was a neat experience. We did the 3 stop trip and sting-ray city was the first. The second stop for snorkeling was a lot...

This was a shore excursion that we took from our cruise ship. We had booked it ahead of time and fully paid for it. We arrived on time for our tour. We were there prior to 10:45 for an 11:00 tour. We ended up waiting until 11:35 for a party of 15 who were late. Really? We were not impressed... More

Wonderful experience with visiting Sting Ray City. The boat is spotlessly clean and the crew the best around.

I would do the all day package where you get to snorkel for Conch and the have them fix it for you for lunch before heading to Stingray City. This is a must do for the first timers on the Island.

We went here with our granddaughter in October, 2014, we did the Stingrays and the 2 stop snorkeling. This was truly the highlight of all of our ports. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The stingrays were amazing. As others have said, they take tons of pictures that you can look at on a computer tablet on the way... More

We had a great time on our Stingray City and Snorkling trip. The weather was perfect. We (group of 10) rented a boat for the day. Our captain was Jason Gerado plus one crew member. At Stingray City, we had plenty time with the stingrays and everyone had a chance to feed and hold them. We took our own pictures... More

It was great to see my family having a blast. Even though these stingrays are tamed, they can still turn on you! So I got to watch my grandchildren have there first real experience with how to treat nature with respect. Laughed and smiled the whole time on this excursion

Had a great time. Traveled with my Mom and Grandma and despite rough conditions even Grandma was able to enjoy her time with the Stingrays. Everyone was given a chance to feed the Stingray's and get their photos. Travel Guides were friendly and helpful. I was curious about the impact on the Stingray's with all the boats and tourists but... More

We had a great time on our Stingray City and Snorkling trip. First off, they had excellent communication and instructions prior to our travel date. It was super busy on Grand Cayman on our day, with 6 cruise ships in port. We were late checking in due to traffic, and they were very accomodating in getting us to the boat.... More

We took the package of 2 snorkling sites and the Stingray City. Steve,Errick, Jason and Capt. Jimmy took good care of us. We were so lucky that our group was only about 10 so we get to play and kiss the stingrays all to ourselves. As soon as the boat reached the sandbar there were so many stingrays approaching the...
