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 will be the Coral Gardens of Grand Cayman. 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

Trip to never forget

This was a great tour. First a snorkelstop were we saw a lot of seaside. Then to Stingray City, which was unbelievable. All around you were stingrays swimming and although there were a lot of boats, we had all the space we needed to have time with the stingrays. The crew of the boat picked one up and the costumers stood in a circle to pet, cuddle, kiss and get a massage from the stingrays. Really awesome! After that another great snorkelstop and just before the rain we got back.

Best Excursion of our TWO week cruise
May 27, 2023
The snorkeling in Grand Cayman ranked at the top of our many experiences Snorkeling. The water was very clear and we saw so many neat fish and stingrays. The check in process was smooth and they kept us on time. The boat was super clean. The first stop, we saw tons of fish and 4 stingrays were hanging around. It was like swimming in an aquarium! The second stop was Stingray City. I thought it would be chaos with all the tourist/boats there but this crew kept things safe and helped us stay a bit apart from the rest of the groups. On our way to our next stop, the crew spotted some sea turtles so we climbed onto the front of the boat to get a better view! Our third stop was a bit more laid back and we discovered some neat fish and corals we hadn't seen before. This group size was just right- not too big! it was perfect day.10 out of 10! This excursion will be one we talk about the most!

A wonderful Day!

I did this snorkeling adventure in Grand Cayman with my family and hike on a Western Caribbean cruise. I had a great day. The crew was very helpful. The equipment was in good shape and very clean. We had wonderful weather and saw lots of fish, rays, and beautiful coral. I would do it again!!
