We signed up to do this tour and had so much fun. We were in a small group of 13 so we had lots of personalized attention. First we did a little snorkeling then went on to Swim with the stingrays. Which was a unique and fun excursion. We had a great lunch at the beach and just relaxed before it was time to head back to the ship. This was a great excursion, one you surely don't want to miss.

Back in December 2012 we took a cruise. We used Native Way as a tour company for Grand Cayman. My wife and I and another couple got the Rays, Reef and Rum Point tour. We recommend this tour. They picked us up in a van where they said they would. Took us to stingray city a beautiful place. They provided us with water and coke for the ride. Stingray was beautiful. Then They took us to a really beautiful and private place to snorkel. We where the only ones in that place. Last they took us to Rum point beach where the food was included. Great food. The trip dint seem rush at all. We felt we did everything at our pace. Our captain (forgot his name he is the one with glasses in their web site) was great. He answered are questions and was great in helping us with the stingrays .Don't forget to tip you captain. I recommend this place especially since compared to those big tours 25+ don't give you the personal service you get here. Awesome company.

We were on the Royal Caribbean, Freedom of the Seas cruise. Our tour was June 12th, 2014. We had a family of 10 so we charted a boat with Sandra of Native Way. We met Eldon at the port and we were early getting off the ship so we waited for him to contact other groups and then he took us to where Sandra was waiting for us. She took us to our boat to meet Captain Chris, our tour guide. The tour was great. Our first stop was to snorkel and look at the Coral Garden and fish. The next stop was Stingray City. It was great. Chris located a Stingray for us. Each one of us got to hold a stingray and give it a kiss and Chris gave us a back rub with a Stingray. Then Chris had some squid so we all got to feed the stingray. We did have a storm come in so we had to cut it a little short but we were able to do everything with the stingrays. Next Chris took us to see the Star fish. Chris showed us many star fish and how to handle them. Native Way and the team was great.
Thanks, to Sandra, Chris and Eldon.

We tendered off and met the guy with the Nativeway sign. We were with a large group that did not tender at the same time so we waited at the port for 45 minutes waiting for more people. Then we were off in a van. We were then put on the wrong boat ( where would we have ended up?) but they figured that out before we left the dock. Finally we were off in a very slow boat an hour and a half after we had tendered. The snorkeling was good and the stingrays fun. Lunch on rum point was great and large. We got back to the pier just 20 minutes prior to the last tender which is a little close for me. I can not rate them higher due to the confusion and cutting it so close to sail time.

We made arrangements with Native Way for an excursion several months before our cruise on a recommendation from a friend who has dealt with them before. There was 8 of us including 4 children. We were not disappointed and they made our experience a great one. Since it looked like it might rain they immediately took us out to the stingrays to make sure we had plenty of time there before any rain (only a few sprinkles the whole time on the island). That was a great experience and they were great about explaining and showing us how to interact with the stringrays. Also, we took trips to Hell and the sea turtle facility and had enjoyed that as well. The folks with us were friendly and helpful answering all the questions we had. We didn't feel rushed and we got back to the port in plenty of time.
