Avoid the crowds on the cruise ship excursions on this motorized cabin cruiser tour to Stingray City, the world-renowned snorkeling destination located in the shallow waters of Grand Cayman's North Sound. With an average group size of only 30 people on this Grand Cayman excursion, you will fully enjoy the exciting experience of swimming and interacting with stingrays!
After departing George Town, you will transfer to the boat on the other side of the island. Once at Stingray City, you'll be able to interact, feed, and swim with these beautiful and gentle stingrays!
Stingray City is believed to have begun years ago when stingrays would gather in the sandbars of the North Sound to feed on the leftovers that fishermen would throw overboard as they anchored there to clean their fish. After many years, the stingrays have become so accustomed to this that they're now routinely fed by hand!
After your visit with the stingrays, you will reboard your boat for a trip to the beautiful Barrier Reef, where you will don the included snorkel gear and explore the underwater world of the reef.
Your next snorkel stop on this Grand Cayman tour will be at the Coral Gardens. This shallow reef is less than 10 feet to the bottom, and is known for its fish and invertebrate population. Here, you will see large schools of fish such as grunts, yellowtails and sergeant majors, along with the semi-resident green-sea turtle.
Time on the boat is approximately three hours. Transfers are 15 minutes each way

We enjoyed the excursion especially the Stingray City. To be with the wild creatures who were so gentle. The boat was very clean and staff were very helpful.

The boat was adequate and the crew were very friendly and instrumental in feeding and getting great photos with the stingrays. We had sufficient time at both snorkel stops and the crew fed the fish to get them to gather around us. Suggest there be a lunch included on the trip.

We had 12 in our group. We had a time of 9:45 am for our trip, our ship came in early, we go to go early to sting ray city. Awesome trip. They take great pictures that you WILL buy. Only excursion I've been on that did that. They were very accommodating with our 5 small kids. They even got to steer this ship.
