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

Our family had a great time on this tour. Our 3 year old son was so excited touching all the Stingrays.

We had a lovely time. When the strap came undone on my personal fins, they were right there to help fix it and offered one of their own until mine could be fixed. The weather was nice and so were the places we went. The only think I would have changed was to go to only one snorkeling site. Two involved too much getting on getting off time.

Our stingray trip was canceled by the authorities due to weather/unsafe conditions. We were taken to Hell (neat place but really just a tourist trap stop IMO) and then the Turtle Center. Got to hold & feed turtles. Awesome time. On the way back, we asked & our drive dropped us off at 7 Mile Beach. He even told us how to get back via Public Bus which saved us a fortune. Would totally book again.

The office was located a block from where we docked. We were checked in very quickly and told what time to be back to catch the bus. The ride to the boat was quick and we were given information about what we were seeing as we passed by. The boat & bathrooms were clean and you had access to juice and water. Our first stop was the stingrays and it was a blast! we were able to hold and feed the stingrays as well as having the captain hold a stingray while a Photographer took pictures that you were able to buy at the end of the trip. This was a lot of fun and a must do to Grand Cayman. The next two stops you were fitted with Snorkels and fins if you need them, we were then taken to two snorkel spots that were filled with fish, coral, Stingrays and crystal clear water. This was a great trip and our group had a blast. We were taken back to the Office right in town and still had plenty of time to browse the town of St George.
Excellent trip with great captain and team
