Stingray City and Two Snorkel Stops
Sale Price: $69.00
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 staff was great!

Loved this tour. Boat held 30 and we were 23 onboard. There were lots of stingrays of all sizes around us waiting to be petted and fed. Water was so clear on the reef. I so enjoyed the experience. I do not snorkel so stayed on boat at stops. Crew members very informative and friendly. So happy to have taken this tour vs ships tour. They arrived in really large boat as we were leaving. ***** 5 stars

Our captain and tour guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. They made sure our snorkeling experience at our 2 stops were safe and we receive the maximum views of ocean life. They were careful to express caution for the coral on barrier reef in order to preserve this magnificent treasure! Stingray City was amazing and they made sure everyone had sufficient time to take pictures and handle the stingrays. It was well worth it and we can’t wait to do another excursion with this team!!!
Great time, Great guides, well taken care of all the time. Very patient with all the guests. We will be back.
