Stingray City and One Snorkel Stop
Stingray City & Coral Gardens Snorkeling Tour
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.
Stingray City is just that, a city of people. This must be the thing to do at G. Cayman, as the sandbar is packed with people - Ray's are interesting and boat guide did a good job of giving all a chance to get as up close and personal with ray as you want. Snorkel stop was excellent and you were not contending with masses of people. Good variety of fish types, plus an eel!
Would highly recommend this excursion. Crew was great and very friendly! Stingrays were cool and the snorkeling was a lot of fun as well!

Captain Marvin provided a great experience from start to finish. The counter staff to the boat crew all did a nice job ensuring we had a memorable time. They had a photographer on board, and we got wonderful pictures of the whole family together with a stingray. The cost of the pictures was reasonable. Aside from the service, the experience of feeding and swimming with huge stingrays was once-in-a-lifetime. The coral garden stop was very nice, though it was shorter than I would have liked. Grand Cayman has very well-preserved and vibrant coral and you should definitely get away from the shore so you can see it. This excursion was the highlight of our cruise!
