I have been to stingray sandbar with Captain Dexter at least 7 times! Every time is exciting and fun! Feeding the stingrays is really cool! I highly recommend Fantasea Tours!

Dexter and his assistant, Daniello (sorry if misspelled) were wonderful! Everyone said we should book an excursion with our cruise ship but I booked Dexter with Shore Excursioneers and we couldn't have been more pleased. We loved the small group on his boat and he was very concerned with our safety. His assistant was very helpful to me because I don't swim and he made sure I got on and off the boat safely. This was a memory of a lifetime for me and my husband. We would love to come back just to visit the island and go back out to visit the stingrays with Dexter. We didn't feel rushed and he took time with each person in the water with the stingrays so we all got time with them and they took pictures with our camera for us. Can't say enough great things about him! Looking forward to someday coming back to visit!!

Captain Dexter knows his stuff! He has been doing tours for 30+ years & he is a native Caymanian. Not only do you get to swim with the stingrays but a stop is also planned to include snorkeling along the reef. Safety is always very important & Dexter reviews those rules before each stop. Tours are small (ours had 15 passengers which I think is probably the limit) Unique to Capt. Dexter's tour is the fact that you sail on a trimaran which in itself is an added bonus! Dexter's rates are very competitive if not a little cheaper than others (he only takes cash). Swimming with the stingrays is a "once in a lifetime" experience not to be missed & Dexter's Fantasea Tours is definitely the way to go!

Lots of options for a morning swim with the stingrays but we took a friend's advice and went with Dexter's Fantasea Tours. Very low key and casual, Dexter was great and the trip was a big success with the kids. "Scarlet" the stingray and Dexter seemed to know one another and she was very comfortable with us holding her. Lovely warm, calm day out on the water for the ride out and back in. Stopped for ~1 hour or so on the way back at the reef for some snorkeling. Great day all around and very reasonable pricing.
