Capt Chip and his deck hand Chris were great! VERY knowledgable and very concerned about how the Stingrays get handled and treated. We had a small group on our boat (16) and it was everything others have said about this company! My only complaint...we didn't get to stay out all day! LOL I really appreciated how they care about the... More

Captain Chip suggested we leave ahead of schedule since everyone was ready, and for good reason. We only had about 25 or so on the boat with us (that is a small group compared to some of those Carnival outfits) and when the boat pulled into position the stingrays all greeted us. Chris was in the water first with his... More

We booked this excursion for our family of 4 (includes 2 teens). The reviews I read had all been positive but nothing compared to the actual tour itself. The people were great and you can tell Chip and his crew have a huge respect for the stingrays. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the stingrays up... More

What an awesome experience! The sailing boat - catamaran is spacious, there were only few people on the boat so we had an amazing time! Captain Chip is an awesome guy - very knowledgeable and friendly! We "parked" our boat futher from the crowd in the stingray city so that we could enjoy stingrays without people pushing you! We could... More

We have been to Stingray City a few times before our trip with Captain Chip and TJ. I wanted a more private setting where you could relax and not have to fight for a seat with 50 other passengers. Captain Chip made this possible for my family. We sailed back into the slip and it was so relaxing. Will recommend... More

Chip is the best! Very friendly and knowledgeable! They aren't lying when they call him the Stingray whisperer. The rays know Chip and his boat. Definitely worth every dollar. My family and friends had a wonderful and unforgettable time. We are still talking about it. Will definitely book again when we go back.

Captain Chip and TJ took us out to the stingray sandbar. They did such a great job. Very courteous. Very professional. Would highly recommend using them over the other options in the Grand Cayman. Their catamaran (The Far Tortuga) is the perfect size for smaller groups. The other boats were like cattle cars. Quite satisfied with our experience.

My family and I booked a cruise for my sons high school graduation and during our stop in Grand Cayman we were interested in visiting Stingray City and snorkeling on the reef. After looking at the excursions the cruise line offered, I decided to do some research on Trip Advisor and book a tour myself rather than going through the... More
