This is a must do while in Grand Cayman. We went out with White Sands and they were awesome. If we could stay another day, I would've done this again. Be sure to take an underwater camera. It is worth it to get up early and do their sunrise trip. We were the only boat out there and only had 9 people on the boat. We signed up ahead of time & glad we did.

Booked this excursion through our cruise and it was awesome! When they tell you that these rays are tame they are it kidding. If they could sit up on little back legs and shake your hand, they would. They are trying to discourage hand feeding since there has been many cases of illness in the rays directly related to human contamination and exposure. It is an experience to behold and they are under your feet and around you flapping around. Bring your snorkle gear so you can see them under water! It really is pretty cool!

Perfect for any age! This cannot be missed while on Grand Cayman. You get to personally interact with stingrays in their natural habitat. The water is crystal clear and very beautiful.

Unbelievable experience, do it as many times as possible. It's swimming with massive sting rays. If possible, rent some jet skis to head out there, makes it that much more fun.

We chose to experience the 'Aquafest Tuesday' Tour offered by Tours Cayman (the variety of destinations changes each day of the week) which took us to Starfish point, Stingray City sandbar, The Barrier Reef and Fishermen's Reef. The crew was fun, extremely knowledgeable and super-friendly. We were picked up at our hotel and did not have to worry about brining our own snorkeling gear or drinks. We had 20 - 30 minutes at each stop which was plenty of time for pictures and snorkeling. At Stingray City, the crew caught the stingrays and held them so that we could kiss them (for 7 years' good luck), feed them, and get a picture with them (which was also a service provided by their excellent crewmember photographer!) I could not imagine anything that would have made it a better experience! Our 8-year old was in absolute bliss. We had lifejackets for our children (4 years and 8 years) and am so glad that we did!!
