A trip to Stingray City is a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Situated in a natural lagoon the stingrays come because they know they get 'free' food. No tanks, enclosures or barriers, these animals are totally free to do what they want. Standing in a few feet of water on a sandbar a few miles off the coastline... More

We did this adventure by seadoo. Fantastic experience with great guides. Would definitely recommend you do this when there aren't too many cruise ships in port.

Stingray City is always a fun and exciting place to go! Captain Marvins is who we have always taken our tours through and they are always courteous and accommodating. Very fun to feed and hold the stingrays!

Great ooportunity for super closeup interaction with stingrays. Water is 15' deep and the rays are most curious. Seem to enjoy using your head for a bellyrub and a light scratch on their foreheads

We were able to visit Stingray city on our Captain Marvin's boat tour. Our tour guides were very helpful! It was a bit windy, so the waves were a little choppier, but still very fun! we have young children, and even our youngest (5) was able to stand and touch the stingrays and feed them. We made some wonderful memories... More

We took a boat ride over to sting ray city. It's in the middle of no where. It's beautiful. Crystal clear beaches with a beautiful view and swimming with huge stingrays. We got to take pictures with the stingrays with the help of our tour guide. It's a little scary to swim with huge sting rays at first. But they... More

At stingray city, you can wade on a sand bar and interact with dozens of stingrays. Or wonderful guide, James (Caymansea.com), gave us squid pieces to feed the stingrays and we were surrounded by them. Best to go in the late afternoon when the aren't so many boat loads of people out there.

We booked this excursion while we were on our Cruise. It was $129.00 per person. The whole excursion was awesome. The bus that picks you up from the port takes you through the city, gives a little tour. Once you get to the site, there is a brief walk through a wooded area where you can take pictures of some...
