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

We originally booked a smaller trip to Stingray City through our hotel. I've read many reviews on the smaller vs. larger tours and thought small was the way to go. Until the boat broke down and our trip was cancelled. Fortunately, they went ahead and booked us with Captain Marvin's. The bus picked up us at our hotel and took... More

String ray city is just a great time, no matter who you choose, but we noticed the boats parked closest to us all started towards our area. Captain Marvin's crew knew how to attract the stingrays and keep them interested. You also get the chance to feed them! We did the 3 stop tour, great snorkeling sites in addition to... More

Highly recommend Captain Marvin tours! The stingray & snorkel boat tour was the highlight of my husband and my trip to Grand Cayman. The staff are friendly and will take you to excellent sites for interacting with the stingrays and snorkeling. This tour is a much better value than the Red Sail tour offered through our hotel. Highly recommend.

I was on Grand Cayman last week with my mom, and we wanted to go snorkeling. When I called around asking if I could be accommodated since I use a manual wheelchair and am unable to walk, Captain Marvin's immediately said "yes". We were picked up at our hotel and driven in the shuttle van to Captain Marvin's store and... More

Can't say enough about the fantastic trip our family enjoyed today with Captain Jimmy, Eric, Clay and the rest of the crew on our 3 stop tour! From the driver who picked us up at our condo to the crew members helping us off the boat, the service was OUTSTANDING!!! As a tourist it's hard not to be a bit... More

We booked the 3 stop Stingray City Tour/Snorkel and chartered a private fishing boat the next day. Both tours were fantastic and the people who work here are great and friendly. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great time and I would highly recommend anyone to this place. Their dock is a short trip... More

We had an absolutely fantastic trip with Captain Marvin. We went to Stingray City, The Barrier Reef and Coral Gardens. We actually went twice while we were on Grand Cayman. I would recommend going on a day when the cruise ships aren't in town. It is a much less hectic scene, but the Stingrays are far hungrier and a little... More
