The last thing you want on a snorkel dive is an ocean-full of snorkelers along with you, right? Escape the large cruise ship crowds on this exclusive Stingray City Snorkel Grand Cayman excursion to Stingray City, a world-renowned snorkeling destination.
With an average group size of only 30 people, you will fully enjoy your time on this Grand Cayman excursion.
You will be transferred from George Town to your waiting motorized cabin cruiser on the other side of the island. Stingray City is located in the shallow waters of Grand Cayman's North Sound.
Stingray City, you will 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 became so accustomed to this, they are now routinely fed by hand!
After your visit to Stingray City, you will enjoy a beautiful snorkeling session at either the Coral Gardens or on the reef, depending on that day's weather.
Time on boat is approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes. Transfer time from downtown to boat pier is approximately 15 minutes each way. Stops are approximately 30 minutes each.

Was an amazing experience. So cool to stand on a sandbar 4 miles off shore and surrounded by lots of stingrays. Good for little kids too (brought my 10, 8 & 6yo). Stingrays were easy to interact with and not dangerous. I would suggest buying a Universal Waterproof Case ($10 on Amazon) to capture video and pictures. The crew was also nice and competent. BTW, we also did the Dolphin Discovery and the stingrays were so much better. Dolphins were in captivity (didn't seem happy), you couldn't take your own pictures, and the Dolphin Discovery encounter people wanted $370 (this is their discounted rate) for their pictures. Crazy when the pictures cost more than the encounter.

Second excursion was just as amazing as the first one. If you haven't swam the sting rays, then you haven't had an amazing experience. The tour guides were awesome, very knowledgeable, and so funny. It was a beautiful experience. Will do it again next year on our next cruise.

We had a wonderful excursion with Captain Marvin's, taking us to Stingray City and snorkeling. Our group was pretty small (30 or so) and everyone was given the opportunity to hold the stingrays and have their pictures taken with them. They took us to a different area where we snorkeled. It was beautiful there with the fish and corals and stingrays. Our crew was very fun and Steve took excellent pictures that captured the day. Thank you for the fun adventure!
