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

Well worth the money
April 02, 2020
This tour was wonderful and the guides were great. We were traveling with our kids and what I loved is that it wasn't a booze cruise. It was family friendly and clean. The boat and snorkel gear were super clean and they cleaned our gear in front of us. They made sure we had a great experience with the sting rays and snorkeling.

Swimming with stingrays
April 01, 2020
My daughter & 2 granddaughters enjoyed the swim with the stingrays, I watch from the boat. They were a little Leary at first, but then loved the stingrays! Very good deal for all the pictures the company took! Capt. Marvin was the best company to go on for this excursion! Wonderful memories!

Stingray City

I would certainly recommend doing this excursion, it was a unique experience. The water was beautiful and calm. The tour guides were really good and made sure everyone got a chance to hold, kiss and put the stingray on your back, we even got to feed them. The snorkel stops were nice as well, although one would have been enough.

What a great day we had on the water. We had plenty of room on the boat and what a nice boat it was. The crew made even the most timid of our group comfortable. Thanks for a great day and we look forward to spending another day with you again.

Great experience

This excursion was excellent from start to finish. The short bus ride to the boat was comfortable and informative. The boat was extremely clean and the crew were both knowledgeable and very helpful. Stingray City and the snorkeling did not disappoint. Would recommend this excursion!
