Richard, Emerson, Steve and the 4th gentleman (I didn't get his name) on the crew were so friendly, efficient and accommodating. In addition to snorkeling we went to Stingray City where we got to take photos with and feed the stingrays. This trip is simply WONDERFUL.

We visited Grand Cayman last week and went on this tour with our 10 and 12 year old daughters and had a blast. The tour guides were so much fun. We loved everything about it. We did the afternoon tour, just because it was our first full day there and we didn't want to feel rushed. We saw dozens of... More

We had an amazing time with Captain Gerry and Richard. The boat was the "Oh Boy" and was 61'Lx 18'W with two 350hp engines. The tour did not overcrowd the boat as did others tours we saw while out on our excursion, with about 15 people on the boat. Both Gerry and Richard were nice and informative with regards to... More

We loved everything about this adventure. It was a 3 stop tour...sting ray city and 2 snorkel stops. My kids(8 &11 yrs old) were little overwhelmed but still enjoyed themselves. The crew(Leo&Mike) were awesome! The photographer Fred did an awesome job capturing our time spent with the sting rays. The crew made you very feel very comfortable with everything going... More

There are lots of tour groups that will take you to Stingray City. We know: we saw dozens of them there. Most of them ferry you out there in dangerously overcrowded boats. We were surprised there were so many overloaded boats on the water. Regardless of whether it's legal or safe, there's no question it would be uncomfortable at the... More

After researching a few Stingray city and snorkeling tours, I decided on Captain Marvin's and we weren't disappointed. Pickup from the hotel was on time, we were delivered to their main office/shop to pay, and collect prescription goggles if needed (the only company I found who had them available for hire), then we were on our way to the boat...

Captain Sal as called on to host our group of 17 out to Sting Ray City, his typical trip is for fishing, but his group canceled. His boat , the Anna , was well suited for snorkeling. He was a good captain, and his mate Leo, did an out standing job of making sure we had a good experience.

We took an early excursion to beat the cruise ship crowd. The whole experience was awesome with great staff through the entire experience. Been to Stingray city before but it was so nice to beat the cruise ship tours.
