Sale Price: $80.00
Coral Gardens & Barrier Reef Snorkel with Stingray City Tour
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

The guide was the best I have had here. He kept rinsing the squid bucket which created a frenzy of the rays, just way cool.

Years ago, I had been to Stingray City. This visit was much better! Our crew had abundant food for the rays and we truly had as much interaction as we wanted. Not only the structured photo ops, but we could step away and feed lots of rays ourselves. They were all over, and swam around our ankles like kittens! Hint: bring your mask and snorkle from the boat, not to swim, but to be able to see underwater. The snorkle stops were quite good, although the stiff winds and currents made for very energetic and tiring swims. (Life jackets optional.) I had my own equipment, but people seemed happy with what was provided. I thought the operators and boat were excellent, and the participants were friendly to each other. A great day!

Got to hold and kiss a Stingray. Now I will have seven years of good luck. Snorkel stops were in some pretty rough water that day.
