Great boats, friendly staff, and the office is really easy to find. They only get an average though because of two administative policies. The pictures they take to sell are very expensive 50.00US and although I read they would charge if you didn't show up, I assumed there would be some leeway for sickness. There isn't. I went and had... More

We took the Snorkel, Conch Dive, Stingray City & Beach Lunch tour. Everything was amazing! We snorkeled over a reef that had stingrays, coral with a ton of tropical fish! Also the tour guides had each of us kiss, hold and get a back rub by a stingray :) Also the food was scrumptious!

The whole trip is fun- the boat ride out, the amazing swimming with the sting rays and 2 other snorkeling stops. The staff are great fun and tell you everything you need and make you laugh. They pick up and drop off at all the hotels so just call and they take care of everything. My teenagers (13,14,17) said best... More

We did the 2.5 hour Stingray plus 2 Snorkel sites trip which was excellent. Really nice boat, very helpful crew and plenty of time at all the stops. Not a catamaran but they come quite a bit more expensive. Ran like clockwork - fully recommend. Very reasonable prices

First time to Grand Cayman and we definitely wanted to go to Hell, so we booked this excursion. Bad weather delayed our cruise ship at departure and we had no way of contacting the office in advance, but followed their suggestion on the tickets to not think we would not be going. We showed up at the office and it... More

We unexpectedly landed on Captain Marvins cruise during our trip to the Caymans. It was a great trip and we can't say enough great things about our experience, the crew and the vessel. As we left the dock, captain Glenn pointed out the large iguanas sun bathing in the trees; which everyone was delighted to see. The vessel was clean... More

The boat was nice. The guides were great and very knowledgeable. Everyone in the party got to hold a stingray and feed them Snorkeling was... More

So we booked Captain Marvin to go to Stingray City, which was awesome. They had squid so we were able to feed the stingrays and truly feel them close to us. They explain to all if us what to do and what not to do before getting in the water. Then after that we went to two different places to... More

Capt Marvins is the oldest tour company offering trips to stingray city. $45 pp for the trip which included stingray city and 2 snorkel stops. Large boat, but not too big, has bathroom, water and "fruit drinks" - more like koolaid.
