You can't go wrong with Captain Marvin's and the 3 stop Stingray and snorkel trip. Make sure you check the Port info and try to go when the cruise ships are not in town.

We have been to Cayman four times, each time on a cruise and each time have gone with Captain Marvin. The tour we've done goes to Stingray City, Corral Gardens and the reef. This is a great itinerary and easy for the novice snorkeled. The stingrays are always fun and on a smaller ship like Marvin's you get individualized attention.... More

Our family has been going with Captain Marvin for years. Our crew on the Miss Anna were very helpful and the lunch was amazing. Wish the sandbar was not so crowded with other boats and lots of tourists, but it was still great to see the stingrays and be able to get up close and personal with them. On our... More

We took the Stingray City and snorkel tour. The guys on the boat were great. They helped us out on the boat and in the water. They were friendly and knowledgeable.

This was the highlight of our trip to the Grand Cayman. Captain Marvin’s is the oldest and the best for boat trips to Stingray City or Cove. We signed up for their beach lunch excursion months before our trip to the island. We knew we were going to swim with the rays, but with all of the unexpected extras, the... More

Excursion included not just a trip to see the sting rays, but two phenomenal snorkeling trips. (One where you got to feed the fish - Imagine a school of angelfish surrounding you and eating right out of your hand! - and where one of the crew lured a huge moray eel out from under the coral so we could see...

We were on a cruise & one port was Grand Cayman. I booked a tour online to go to see Hell & then onto The Turtle reserve. We arrived early at Captain Marvin's to go on the tour. It was chaotic & disorganized. We were told we had to stand in line to get our tickets even though we had... More

Great trip to Sting Ray City and 2 other snorkel sites. Crew was very helpful and professional...took care of seniors and little kids with careful attention. No alcohol served on board. On the ride back one of the crew members showed us how to clean and "fillet" a conch. Gave out the cleaned shells to guests. I got to sample... More

Captain Marvins did a great job. Even though we had a large group, they were very efficient and helpful. The boat ride was at a slow speed, probably because it was so windy and rough waters. The Stingray experience is unbelievable. (and safe!) They take pictures for you if you want, but you can also take them yourself if preferred.... More
