Stingrays, and two stop snorkeling adventure was fabulous, I totally recommend this tour service! They were really fun and went out of their way to make a great adventure even for the two petrified women who would get near the water. They were towed on a float right out with the Rays, and loved it. We were all treated like... More

My group of three booked our Captain Marvin's Sting Ray City and Snorkel Tour after arriving on the island. As staff are typically in and out, it can sometimes be harder to reach them by toll free number phone but I think they may be more accessible via Cayman local phone. That being said, they correspond promptly via email. I... More

The crew is friendly and they picked us up right at our condo. They made everyone feel comfortable with the stingrays and everyone enjoyed watching one of the crews jump off the boat and get 2 starfish. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was that they were supposed to take pictures (and I forgot to get... More

Captain Marvin's three hour boat trip takes you to play and dance with the stingrays . . . and if you'd like, to kiss one for seven years' good luck. And, if you're adventureous enough, you might even get a full body massage! You get to pose with a ray and have wonderful photos taken that will be great memories... More

The crew picked us up at our hotel and took us a short drive to their boat which was ready to go. We motored out to an area called stingray city to play with and photograph stingrays! Then we found another spot to snorkel the reefs and another to view an underwater garden. Not crowed and a great experience!

Delroy, Joe and Allison did a fantastic job of making this a 3 hour trip we'd never forget! Stingray City: Delroy should be called the ray whisperer! He had the large females giving back rubs, kisses and posing for endless photos. Lifetime memories that we'll never forget! Though the females are so large, and there were so many, we were... More

We took their 3 hour tour on a non-cruise day (less crowded I suppose) and it worked out very well. The staff was very friendly and all three stops were great. Highly recommend to any one going to Stingray city. Do remember to check your photos on the return trip as we did not realize that we were to check... More

Captain Glen and Daren and Polo made this trip great. They were very helpful and to inexperienced snorkelers. The stingrays were great and even though very touristy the experience was unbelievable. Polo is the photographer on the trip so you can get good pics. Highly recommend this group
