Take the snorkeling tour of a lifetime as you cruise around on a Sea-Doo jet ski (WaveRunner) at exhilarating speeds up to 50 mph on your Grand Cayman excursion.
After donning life jackets and receiving a safety briefing and instructions for navigating your machine, you will be off and running.
Follow your guide on a 15 to 20 minute WaveRunner ride out to the Stingray City Sandbar. Each departure is limited to five WaveRunners, plus the guide, so you're guaranteed an intimate experience. There, you'll interact with the friendly stingrays and enjoy swimming, holding and touching the rays, and taking photos.
Your second stop is only a few minutes away. The Barrier Reef is teeming with a wide variety of corals and marine life (including a local green eel that occasionally will swim out and pose for pictures). Water depths are approximately 6 to 10 feet.
During this Grand Cayman excursion you will spend approximately two hours on the water. Half the time you will be riding the WaveRunners and the other half will be spent at Stingray City and the Barrier Reef to snorkel.
On your way back to George Town, you will have the option to be dropped off at Seven Mile Beach or back in George Town for shopping and the tenders. Guests ending the tour at the beach are responsible for arranging their own transportation back to town at their own expense.
We chose this excursion as a way to get several activities in one. We wanted to go to Stingray City and the jetskis and snorkeling were a bonus. We rode together on one jetski. We had a lot of time on the jetskis, so we were able to really play and enjoy ourselves. I got thrown off twice due to my husband driving like a madman LOL, but it didn't spoil the fun at all. Stingray City was absolutely amazing. I got some incredible close up footage. The guides let us hold the stingrays and get photos/video with them. We went to starfish beach and held starfish. I brought my own snorkel gear, so I could snorkel and search for starfish. I have recommended this excursion to everybody that I know that has travelled to Grand Cayman and I will continue to do so. This was so much more than we expected. It's a bargain considering all the experiences you get for the price. Don't pass up this chance to create some unreal memories! Be sure to bring a GoPro to capture some great footage.

My husband and I booked the Jetski to snorkel and stingray beach. I dont have enough GOOD things to say about this trip! The staff was wonderful and so much fun to be with. We came to grand cayman on our cruise ship and they made sure we were on time to catch the boat before it left us (I wouldn't have minded being stuck there though!!) All in all, you won't be disappointed booking this trip!

This excursion was the highlight of our trip! After a 10 min bus ride, brief safety tutorial, we got on the jetskis for about 30 min to an area with coral reef filled with colorful fish and a few friendly stingrays. We snorkled for about 20-30 mins and then off on the jetskis for about 15 mins over to a shallow area (3-4 ft deep) called Stingray city. Here our guides caught huge stingrays and u could pet them or give them a kiss for 7 yrs of good luck. After about 20 mins in stingray city, back on the jetskis for 30 mins back to the docks. We were probably out on the water for 2-2.5 hrs total and on the jetskis for at least half that time. My experience jetskiing was minimal. Water was calm that day, but u would need some upper body strength to hang on in choppy waters. If u fall off, the key is attached to your life jacket so the jetski stops immediately. I couldn't think of exploring these beautiful islands in a better way! If I go back there, I would do the same excursion again!
This excursion was amazing!! Tour guide super funny and nice. Would definitely do it again!
