“Awesome Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

My family and I booked the 52' luxury yacht and had the best time ever. We cruised to Stingray City and got personalized time with the stingrays. This is the best way to see the stingrays because it was my family only, a lot of the other boats visiting were large with a lot of passengers. Captain Shawn and Chris were both awesome, Chris actually went above and beyond when he carried my wife from the boat to the sandbar! We also visited starfish point and cruised through the mangroves. The boat trip was our best time on Grand Cayman. The only negative thing I can say was I only booked the boat for 5 hours - next time we will book for entire day. Thank you Shawn & Chris for an Awesome Time!

“Great Tour group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Great tour guides to Stingray City and snorkeling!! We were lucky enough to book our group (12) people while there were no cruise ships in port. We were the only ones on the boat and received undivided attention from a great crew, Phil, Dan, Ricardo and Ricky. There were some of us who had been to Stingray City previously, but most had not, It was a wonderful experience for all!! We highly recommend this tour operator.

“One of the best excursions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

My wife and daughter had the pleasure of going on the 52' ft luxury yacht and had a wonderful time. This was certainly the highlight of my cruise experience with Carnival which I will never take again by the way.

Our captain Shawn Mourao was a delight to be with along with Chris his 1st mate. They are both very courtious and helpful to all of their passengers and treated us like we were family. I would without a doubt recommend taking an excursion with Cayman Style if you plan on visiting the Cayman Islands. Rest assured that I will be planning a trip back to the Cayman Islands just to go back again.

“Great sting ray experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great experience with sting rays. There are many other boats so many other people, but it is still a neat experience with wild sting rays. A boat drop off at 7 mile beach would be even better.

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

It was really exciting having the opportunity to swim with stingrays. The water is crystal clear at the sandbar and the stingrays are very friendly, swimming past you without being scared or anything.
