Some clients of mine (I run a hospitality business) tried to book with this company and they took their credit card information and never confirmed the booking. Ebanks never answered the phone. They are no longer in business in Cayman and should not be taking sensitive credit card information from customers knowing they have no intention of ever providing tours. They should be removed from this site to prevent any further heartache to customers.

Our trip was booked a month prior and the first date was requested to be changed so we changed our plans for a new date. 24 hours before we were told that the bait was unavailable. I would never recommend such an unreliable service

My boyfriend and I traveled to the Cayman Islands this past March with a cruise, and this was by far our favorite part of our entire trip! We were picked up on time at designated location, and we enjoyed every minute of jet skiing. Andre was a good guide and he let us roam and do our own thing while staying nearby. Overall, a great experience!

My guy and I took the late afternoon trip to Stingray City and Starfish Beach. Riding the jet skis in the ocean was an exhilarating experience. Taking the currents head on made me feel like a glamazonian princess. Looking at our small group of jet skiers I felt like I was in the coolest jet ski gang on the ocean. Then we got to Stingray City.
O.M.G. The stingrays just swim right up to you like they’ve been awaiting your arrival all day. You feel like the guest of honor as you enter their lovely city. Then our tour guide took out some food for them and we were surrounded by these graceful bat signal looking floaties underwater all around us. My guy was like a kid in a candy store, he was having the best time just checking these things out so up close.
Our guide held one and I thought that was pretty cool but then he helped US each hold a stingray. Who knew you could hold a stingray????? That was pretty sweet.

Next our gang hopped back on our jets and rode our way over to Starfish beach. This was cool but starfish don’t flock to you the same way those stingray did and we kept seeing tiny jellyfish which freaked my guy out and sent him straight out of the water so, definitely a less welcoming experience.

After hearing some fun facts from our guide we got back on the jets and headed back to the dock. This was a nice long ride and you get to go as fast as you want. AWESOME.

One lesson learned - bring sunscreen. I put some on before we left but it clearly wore off through all the water time and hard riding so I came home with a wicked burn. Don’t do that. Also, maybe stretch a little beforehand. That hard riding was hard on my body. Day two post ride and I am hurtin’ for certain. But it was totally worth it and if you asked me, I’d go again tomorrow. Please check out Ebanks Watersports - they provide an excellent adventure.

Dean, patiently waited for our late cruise ship arrival and whisked us off to a fantastic adventure for the day. Despite being behind schedule, Dean still managed to customize our outing and we got to see everything we had planned on - swimming with the rays, snorkeling, and starfish point. Dean made sure our day was perfect and even made the day of some stranded tourists by giving them a lift back to the cruise terminal with us. FANTASTIC Day!

One of the best boat excursions we have done. From pick-up to drop-off, Dean did a great job making us feel comfortable and tailoring the tour however we wanted it. I highly recommend going to Stingray City with Ebanks, they are very knowledgeable and it makes a big difference going in a small group then one of the larger tours.

We chose this tour based on the numerous of outstanding reviews posted by former patrons, and can honestly say the guys that run this company went above and beyond to provide the best experience we could possible have. Ashley was our tour guide and was incredibly intentional to make sure we enjoyed every minute of our tour. The ride to Stingray City on the jet ski's was great! It was a bit choppy but Ashley frequently made sure we were comfortable with the ride. He took us to an area away from the crowds where we had access to many stingrays. Ashley was incredibly knowledgeable about the stingrays and he knew them by name! He spent so much time luring them to us and carefully showed us how to handle them. We fed them squid, cradled them in our arms, swam with them and learned a lot about their characteristics. Our cruise ship offered a similar excursion to Stingray City but because of the large group, they only had a short time trying to hold a ray. However, Ashley gave us a lot of time and personalized attention with the stingrays and we were able to ride over to Starfish Island and spend time holding beautiful big starfish that were plentiful in shallow water. This is truly a personalized experience and these guys will go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful time. On our way back from the marina, Ashley was even kind enough to let us stop by a dive shop and buy some tshirts. I do suggest purchasing a plastic waterproof phone case to protect your phone for taking pictures. We purchased ours for $15 at Turtle Bay gift shop near the Ebanks storefront. This is an exceptional value for an exceptional experience! Thanks guys!

Our tour had to be altered a bit due to the weather, the seas were too rough for the jet skis, the company offered to take us out in their boat to the two locations, so glad we went (another couple opted out, so we had a private tour!). We went out to the stingrays where we got to hand feed them. There were so many stingrays it was amazing, we stayed out there as long as we wanted - it was perfect. Then we boated over to Starfish Beach. On this day there weren't too many starfish (about a dozen) a little disappointing, but at least we saw some. The two guys that were our guides (sorry, I forgot their names ...maybe Dean? both from England) went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time and we did!!!! I would certainly recommend this tour to everyone :)
