Then had the stingray stop which was brilliant, got to hold and feed the stingrays with loads of opportunities for photos. Saw starfish at starfish point and then a great lunch at rum point...

We have been to Stingray City many times before and decided to try Captain Marvin's this time. The boat was small and there were just enough sitting spaces for everyone. The captain and mate were very friendly, helpful , and knowledgeable. Of course the stingrays and snorkeling spots are awesome...it's Cayman! There are other more expensive boats and you get...

We really enjoyed booking with Captain Marvin's in Grand Cayman. The boat and crew were awesome, and we got some really great pictures with the stingrays and reefs.

We booked this as an excursion during our cruise. We saved tons of $$$ by booking with Captain Marvin's (as opposed to booking through the cruise line). This was a great trip! The storefront was close to the cruise terminal and easy to find. The staff was friendly and punctual. It was a gorgeous day that made for great family... More

We booked them as a private half day boat tour for a family of six adults. The boat was large, the crew was friendly, and they provided water and juice. We brought our own other beverages, towels and sun screen. They took us to sting ray city and while there went in the water to help with holding and viewing... More

We took the Stingray City tour, which includes an amazing visit with with stingrays and two beautiful snorkel stops, one on the barrier reef and the second in a coral garden. The captain, Glenn, and crew were attentive, knowledgable and patient with everyone. And they made the excursion lots of fun. The trip is very safe for all ages. The... More

I had been to Stingray City, Grand Cayman, two previous times. They were with a different company. While they were both fun, this most recent trip with Captain Marvin's was absolutely the best. First-rate crew, well-planned, well-executed. Great value. Do NOT hesitate to use these top-notch folks. My group of five included three experienced and two novice stingrayers; we all... More

We scheduled our island highlights tour through Viator tour booking and we ended up on the tour with Captain Marvin. They picked us up at the hotel and we checked in at the tour office. They thought we were going on a snorkeling tour and soon found out that was not the case. We waited for the guide to arrive,... More
