Captain Marvins is a reputable and trusted tour operator. I was a little hesitant at booking a non-cruise tour, but the service we received was amazing. Right from the boarding experience, to the free on-board water and juice, free use of snorkel equipment, free equipment rinse service and even free bait to feed the stingrays! They really make their money... More

Amazing trip with a great, experienced crew who knew how to handle the stingrays correctly and safely. They made me feel more safe and comfortable than I expected to be. Captain Marvin's is very affordable, I got an experience worth more than I payed for!!! I think it was $50 per person for a 2 stop snorkel and Stingray city... More

We booked our Stingray City/snorkeling trip through Captain Marvin's. The guides were very friendly and the trip was well organized. We went by air conditioned bus from downtown George Town to the marina where we boarded the boat for travel to Stingray City and two snorkeling spots. We will definitely use Captain Marvin's for future excursions.

A must go. Great experience. The tour guys were excellent. You get to feed the Stingrays and take pictures. You feed the Stingrays with squids. But they will climb and suck on to you because they still smell the fish on you. But don't be alarmed.

We heeded to book this tour last minute for six people. We checked several places and they were all full. Anna at Seven Mile beach resort was kind enough to call them and make arrangements to book this trip. They picked us up at the hotel and transported us to their store and then their dock. The tour was fantastic.... More

We did a 3 stop your - stingray city and 2 stops for snorkeling. It was $45 per person almost half of what the hotel was offering. They pick you up and bring you to their main office where you pay and then shuttle you to the boat. Seamless and efficient. The crew on our boat was simply amazing -... More

First of all, $45 for a visit to Stingray City is a deal in Grand Cayman! A guy who was staying at the Ritz said that the operator there was charging $90. Me and 3 friends signed up with Captain Marvin's for Sunday, August 7, 2016, at 1p. We went out with Keith and Glenn. These guys are excellent! Keith... More

Great thing to do with the family - voted as the highlight of our trip to Grand Cayman! The ray experience is so cool and the snorkeling is spectacular! Only drawback was the Reservation process - we spent too long on the phone with the Captain Marvins staff and they still screwed it up. We had a last minute scramble... More
