This was our most enjoyable afternoon in years! The sail back to the dock with Dexter and Oscar telling tales to the backdrop of island songs was "once in a lifetime" great. They are experts with stingrays and snorkeling. Both are "Old Conchs" and you'll...More

We really enjoyed our time on this tour. Would definitely return to take the tour again. They picked us up from the condo, supplied all the equipment and provided water and soft drinks. Sailed to stingray city and were instructed on how to handle the...More

We took great care in planning our excursion during our time in Grand Cayman. There were 8 of us traveling together from the ages of 16 to 75. Dexter's Fantasea proved to be the PERFECT tour. It started with a gorgeous ride on his catamaran...More

We took Dexter’s tour while on a cruise before Christmas. We had previously visited Grand cayman and wanted a smaller tour operation that allowed more time to snorkel. He was waiting on us at the cruise terminal when we disembarked and quickly got us to...More

We enjoyed seeing the stingrays and snorkeling. Dexter was responsive to e-mail, came to pick us up right on time, and made some interesting comments about living on the island. I liked that they gave clear safety instructions, but didn't belabor the information. At the...More

Captain Dexter parked the Catamaran away from all the other boats and the sting rays came to us so that we had an uncrowded exclusive experience. He and his crew made us comfortable with the sting rays and educated us about them while having fun....More

From the start of this amazing experience, captain Dexter and his crew were outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable, very kind and fun. They only carry a small number of passengers so they have plenty of time to ensure everyone is experiencing the stingrays and snorkeling. We travel...More

Alternative to Dexter's Fantasea Tours (2 Replies)
Just learned today that Dexter's is not available the day our cruise is in port due to a private charter. We had chosen Dexter's because they do smaller tours. Can someone give me an alternative stingray tour which does smaller catamaran tours? Thank you.

Try Red Sail or Captain Bryan.
Info on Dexter's Fantasea Tours (2 Replies)
I think I've decided to use Capt. Dexter for my Stingray City trip and was curious if I needed to pre-book it. I've sent a couple emails with questions to them, but haven't gotten a response. I'll be arriving on a Saturday and wanted to take a Sunday trip to avoid the cruise ships so figured I might need to book it in advance. If anyone has done that with them, please advise. Also wondering if I need to pre-book Jolly Rogers Pirate Cruise as well.

we had a great trip with Dexter in '03, found the best way to reach him/make a reservation was to call. small groups were a plus and he's a great host. would highly recommend, especially if you want a more personal/less "touristy" experience. plus the stingrays are awesome!
