Stingray City is a must. We went with Captain Marvin’s on the three stop snorkelling trip and it was the best value for money on the Island. We were well looked after and the experiences at each stop were 1st class.

We had a small boat of 6 people, headed out 1.2 hr to the sandbar at Stingray city. We opted for the 2 stop ride. The boat operators and photographer knew what they were doing. We fed and patted the rays as the photographer flashed photos to be purchases later ($50 for all). Next stop was Coral Reefs. Nice 1/2... More

First, doing a stingray / snorkel excursion in Grand Cayman is an absolute must if you are on the island. They offer pickup and drop off at your hotel. We stayed across the street from their office, so we grabbed the shuttle there. The boat is a 2 level boat that offers both shade and sunny areas on both levels... More

What a great bunch of guys on this excursion, Leeroy, Roy and two other guys. They made the experience just amazing, really helpful and fun. The pictures they took were brilliant and very reasonable. Thanks for such a great day out for us and our kids.

We booked a private tour with captain Marvin while our cruise ship was docked in grand cayman for the day. He was reliable and fun. He took us to the stingray sandbar and helped us interact with and feed the stingrays, which was amazing. Then he took us on 2 beautiful snorkel trips. The guide jumped in the water with... More

Very nice short tour to visit Sting Ray City and play with 20-30 stingrays. It was nice, but if the group get too big can be a little headache/crowded. Overall, we enjoyed our 3 stops tour. Two stops for coral/snookering and 1 stop at the sting ray city.

Great crew to go with, we were under the impression that we would be with a small group of about 20 people but there were about 50 people. This didn't really make a difference though. We had a blast!!! They took the time to grab a stingray, pose you with it, kiss it, and have it give you a back... More
