What a fun day at sea! The guides on the boat were very entertaining and very friendly. They were very informative about the area did not pressure anyone to go in the water if they did not want to. Two thumps up to Capt. Marvins

Kiss a stingray, get seven years good luck. Our good luck started when we booked the snorkeling and stingray city tour with Captain Marvin. The office was right across the street from the port where our cruise ship docked and the ride to the boat was pleasant and comfortable. We took a boat with about thirty other people out to... More

What a great experience! And I would do it all over again. The staff was knowledgable and funny. I felt safe with them. Be sure to bring cash for tips for boat staff and bus driver.

I hesitate to write this review because I feel like the experience may have been my fault. After two very successful fishing trips with another charter and a close friend I wanted my family to experience it. We booked a half day which was a mistake on my part. Half day limits the Captain in where he can go so... More

Just got back from a private charter with Captain Marvin. I must say it was incredible. The office at the dock was directly across the street from where our Disney cruise ship was docked. The staff checked our family of ten in and we boarded a shuttle to drive to where our boat, the Miss Aly was docked. Since lunch... More

We did the sting ray city tour with another outfit years ago and they just put us in the water with food for the rays. The rays swarmed the kids and they were alarmed. With captain Marvin, first the did a stingray interaction where each guest got to hold, and kiss a stingray while being photographed. I don't know how... More

If you vacation in Grand Cayman, an excursion with Captain Marvin's is a must. This crew made every detail count including diving off the boat into the ocean and surfacing with two enormous starfish...while the boat was in motion. The stingray experience was simply amazing. Even for those a little apprehensive like myself, this crew made you feel relaxed and... More

This is the best stingray city tour in cayman. Red sports was very professional, but I had more fun with the Captain Marvin crew and it was substantially cheaper. The photographer was much better too. Don't hesitate to book. i was shocked that this was much cheaper and much better than the competition.
