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

Great Day at Stingray City

Two excellent spots for snorkeling and a stop at Stingray City where we were able to hold, kiss and get a shoulder message from a Stingray. The crew was wonderful and made sure everyone was safe and had a fun time. I highly recommend this tour.

Snorkel trip

We had a great time! There were 3 stops and we enjoyed all of them. The first stop was to see the sting rays and the other two stops you could actually snorkel at. We would definitely book this again!

Fun with stingrays
April 11, 2022
This tour was great, staff were well organized and professional. Ship was clean and snorkeling equipment was kept in soapy water solution which was appreciated for cleanliness and also prevented fogging of lenses. Interaction with and holding of the stingrays was an event not to be missed. Snorkeling afterwards was an added plus.

Well worth the money

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.
