Stingray City Sail, Snorkel and Rays
Avoid the masses on this 25 passenger catamaran Grand Cayman shore trip to Stingray City followed by a wonderful snorkel at one local reef and sailing in the North Sound.
You will be transferred from the cruise pier area to the island's north shore where your CAT awaits. Come and join us for an unforgettable trip onboard a 38ft, Lagoon S2 catamaran, built in 2005. In the comfort of our luxury boat and with the expertise of our crew we will offer you the experience of a lifetime interacting with the stingrays, snorkeling amongst the fish and star fishes and sailing the pristine waters of our North Sound.
Your trip to "Stingray City" will take approximately one hour by engine, and once there you will have the opportunity to interact with these beautiful, friendly creatures.
Our snorkeling stop will give you the opportunity to explore the reef and its sea life, where you will be in awe at the underwater world that resides there.
After a fresh water shower, we will raise our sails and take you on a delightful and relaxing cruise across the North Sound. Soft drinks and pizza will be provided to heighten your experience whilst we sail. Total time on the boat is 4 hours.
When you get home, check out the link to a website you will be given where you will be able to download pictures from your trip for free.
Small group would made the trip nicer. I was scared when the sting rays came for food but soon found out there was nothing to worry about. Then I got my camera and took lots of pictures. After the sting rays we went to the coral reef to snorkel. The amount of fish we saw was amazing. The guide even got a moray eel to come out several times. I wish I had a water proof camera.
The captain was great and went out of his way to make sure each and every person was having a good time. The only excursion we have ever been on where we weren't asked over and over again for tips and he even refused to take a tip at the end of the trip. He didn't even charge us for the pictures he took for us while playing with the stingrays. We only wish he was going to be doing this excursion again in Nov 2015 when we are going again on this trip.
The boat was spotless - obviously the pride and joy of the owner (who is also the captain). Flexible itinerary - seas were a bit rough so democratically we decided to go to Star Fish Point instead of snorkelling after playing with the stingrays. They took photos of us with the stingrays that they then uploaded on Facebook - available to us for free.

Had a wonderful time. Absolutely beautiful sailboat. It was nice being on an excursion that wasn't packed. I would definitely recommend this trip.
We had heard that we must swim with the rays when in the Caymans. I was a little nervous booking with a company outside the safety of the cruise ship realm. My daughter (18) and I (47) were traveling by ourselves and were very comfortable the entire time. So glad we took a chance and booked this excursion. Super clear instructions on meeting and what to expect and a great crew to boot. There is a true cost savings with booking thru i-cruise but the greatest value is the smaller size and more personal group. We saw several big monster boats and felt bad for them. We had a great time with the rays and the snorkeling was beautiful too. When we come back this way with the boys (husband and son), I will book this exact trip again. Until next time... :)
