I use TA to plan far away vacations; our trip to Grand Cayman was no exception. We made reservations w Captain Marvin's crew before we left for GC. Sunday morning was not crowded; we very much enjoyed all three stops! They lived up to their billing! Tip: For the stingray stop, a crew member takes "professional water pictures" of you... More

If you visit this tiny island of Grand Cayman, be sure to book a trip to Stingray City with Capt. Marvins crew. Some of the nicest folks we've met, and their hospitality can't be surpassed. Be sure to put their luncheon trip on your bucket list, you'll remember this visit for the rest of your life. Thank you Joe, Carlos,... More

Our first time visiting Grand Cayman and we knew we wanted to swim with stingrays! We heard of Captain Marvin's from family members who had taken this tour a few years prior and had strongly recommended us going. Although we were a little nervous at first - the excitement and adrenaline kicked in quickly and soon we forgot about our... More

After several visits to Grand Cayman this is still a family favorite. The full day trip is a great time and always fun. The initial conch dive and lunch with the conchs that you find is really tasty. It's a great way to see stingray city and a few of the really neat snorkeling spots Cayman has to offer.

We took the stingray city and snorkel trip. It was awesome. The crew took great care to make everyone comfortable with the rays and snorkeling. I would definitely go with this company again.

We went on this tour December 31st and it was great. We did the two snorkel stop with a stop to stingray city to see the stingrays. Overall it was a great experience. Next time I will be sure to wear a shirt while snorkeling because that hot Caribbean sun was no match for the sunblock on my back while... More

Went on Dec 30, 2014. Easy to contact them online. I tried to reach them by email 1 day before going on a cruise where this was the first stop. They still made contact and accommodated my group of 4. Note, they typically book up around the holiday traveling times so book early if possible. We were happy to see... More
