Mario and his crew were amazing. They did a fantastic job of making everyone feel comfortable and they truly want to show each person the beauty of this paradise. We can't wait to see our pictures from the trip today. We would not hesitate to give Mario and his crew on "The Big John" an A+++ for an amazing day.

Thank Erin M

Our family had a great time.... we have 4 children, ages ranging from 10-20, so it is often hard to find an activity that everyone is able to love and participate in...this was definately it. Mario and his staff were great, friendly and helpful, and made sure everyone had a good time. When we were at starfish point, people from other excursions were coming over to try and "piggy back "onto our time with the starfish.... they were not getting the personal service from their trip that we were getting. (Mario and Dwayne had to snorkel out to find starfish--due to unusual wavy water,and wind the starfish were not in shallow water) . We only had 21 people on our boat....other boats that we saw were big, crowded and seemed to be very commercial. This excursion was definately personal and was one of the highlights of our 5 day trip. Based upon other reviews, and the recommendation of our travel agent, I had very high expectations for this excursion and those expectations were exceeded. You can't go wrong if you book this trip--great value as well.

I can't say enough good things about the excursion and it's people. Booking was a breeze. Mandy was so efficient in communicating detail of the trip. Meeting at the port terminal was so easy, and we were off with our group immediately. As promised, their large boat only had 21 guests even though he could have accommodated more. Captain Mario and his crew couldn't have taken better care of us. The seas were unusually rough. Mario spent extra care and time getting us to our sites and helping us in and out of the water. Either he was spending extra time with my 7 year old or helping my mother and mother-in-law in and out of the boat at Sting Ray City. He even carried my little guy to the beach. When no starfish were in sight due the current, Mario and his crew snorkeled out a ways and brought them to us! There was extra time at the Sting Ray site with individual attention and photos. They even feed us pizza and their was plenty to go around. Everyone in our group was impressed. Our Sting Ray City, Snorkel, and Starfish point excursion was the highlight of our cruise. We felt as if we were out with personal friends!

We joined Mario and his crew for a morning tour of Stingray city, starfish point, and snorkeling and found it to be the highlight of our trip to Cayman Islands. Mario interacted with the kids very well and helped all of us at each location. He shared his knowledge and was also friendly. There were 17 people on the boat, which is not many compared to the other tours which are jam packed. There was pizza and drinks for free, and the crew made a conch taster for us with fresh catch that morning. Pictures were provided free of charge, making the value for this excursion excellent.

When Captain Mario is not busy being a captain, he is busy being a kid - so he just LOVES having the small ones on board! The pizza and conch ceviche can really go down well when you are out in the fresh air, and we are glad that you enjoyed the tour with us! We hope that Grand Cayman left you with enough wonderful memories to bring you back!

My husband and I had a great day with Captain Mario and his crew while on a shore day from our March 3-14, 2014 cruise on the Celebrity Equinox. Mario met us as planned at the terminal info kiosk; there was a bit of delay getting started as he had to locate some of the participants. It was a lovely, sunny hot day. We went first to the Coral reef for amazing snorkeling and then on to the Starfish Beach and then to swim with stingrays. Mario and crew are very friendly and entertaining, but also very careful about safety during the tour. Swimming with stingrays was a special event. We'd been advised to try this by a friend who lived in Gr Cayman x several yrs. and she was right. Mario's assistant, Duane, has a special relationship with these creatures; he was so careful about how we should handle them and this added to our enjoyment. Mario takes photos of each of us with a stingray that you can access after the trip. Be sure to bring swimsuit, T-shirt for sun protection while snorkeling, water, sunscreen, dry clothes, hat and sandals. Our only concern was that water/juice wasn't available on the boat (pizza was) and the size of the group that day. We'd chosen this tour as the site stated groups were limited to 10-12 people but there were about 18 the day we went out so the boat was somewhat crowded. It was a wonderful start to our vacation!! Thanks, Mario and crew.

Thank you for the lovely review and so good to hear that you enjoyed the tour and the crew. Thank you also for the tips re the sunscreen etc - we do supply this information in our confirmation e-mails, but it is always good for readers to be reminded. It was lovely to have you on-board with us and we hope that the rest of your vacation was absolutely wonderful. This was a standard tour - our site says that our groups are approximately 25 passengers (far less than our licensed 40 guests!) and your tour was under even that figure. Water and fruit juice are freely available and Captain Mario offers this throughout the tour. We hope that we will be able to have you back out with us should you visit the island again!
