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.

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!

We boarded the boat with about 20 other people and headed out to the open ocean. Only about a 20 minute trip until we anchored and were told to climb into the water (warm) Once again my new wife couldn't stop smiling This is SO much fun and we treasure the pictures that were taken by the crew. Speaking of crew, of all the excursions we did, ALL of the crew members on this and the other excursions we booked through Costco were exceptional. I've traveled extensively over the years until losing my wife of 54 years to Alzheimers so this trip was the first "out of country for my new wife. We strongly recommend booking your excursions through Costco, about half of what the cruise ship charges

This was one of the best excursions I have been on. The people were friendly and helpful. They explained everything. The boat wasn't too crowded. The water was crystal blue and clear. Swam with stingrays and the best snorkeling.
The ONLY reason this is four stars is that it should be longer! Stingrays were amazing, snorkeling was super cool.
