Affordable excursion for the whole family! They took care of us and our whole group, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Unlike some stingray groups, this was a small enough group that you didn't feel lost in the crowd. Great job guys!

The captain and crew went out of their way to make sure everyone on board had an incredible trip! The bust is big and very comfortable. Best snorkeling trip I've ever been on

Our large extended family chartered our own boat for snorkeling and a stop at Stingray City. Staff was phenomenal! Everyone in our group felt safe and welcomed. The boat was super clean and checkin was quick and easy. Please consider Captain Marvins when in Cayman as all members of our family enjoyed the excursion from seniors to little ones.

We went on a saturday morning while in the cayman's and there wasn't a cruise ship in sight. They provided the transportation to and from which was extremely helpful. We had the entire stingray city for just three groups. Captain Marvin's group was about 20; we were told that during high season there can be upwards of 2000 people (so... More

My husband and I agreed that this was one of the best excursions we've ever taken! I booked the trip very easily online and Ruth was great answering my questions. The driver arrived promptly at our hotel to bring us to the office and then the boat...a very fast process. Once on board, I was pleased to see our group... More

We had 9 in our family, ranging from age 9 to 72. Each of us had a wonderful experience. Every detail from transportation to feeding the... More

Captain Marvin's is the best snorkel trip. We had three stops and the crew made the experience so much more enjoyable. Very professional and great with my two young kids. Highly recommend them for your water needs while at Grand Cayman 🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠⚓️🚤

We were two families traveling together on the trip. We had a wonderful time. On the second stop one of our teens was injured by the ladder resulting in her finger nail being pulled off. The crew of our boat acted immediately to provide first aid and make arrangements for her and her parents to get on another boat which... More
