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.

This was one of the things I definitely wanted to do while in the Cayman Islands, and it certainly did not disappoint. The stingray experience was amazing, and the snorkeling was probably the best of all the stops we made while on our cruise. The captain and crew were very friendly and happy, and it was one of the best vacation days I have ever spent!

Stingray City was so awesome I almost cried tears of joy. Not only do you get to touch a stingray, you get to hold one and, if you want, kiss it! (Legend has it you get 7 years' good luck if you kiss a stingray. I have lots of luck!) The stingrays are docile and feeding them is an experience not to be missed. It's really cool to feel them suck the squid from your hand! The crew on our tour were very relaxed and welcoming. I can't recommend this tour highly enough!

Not only do you get to swim with Stingrays but you do so at a sandbar in their natural environment. I can't say enough about this tour and definitely would recommend it to anyone that wants this hands on experience with ocean life.
I know we would see stingray, did not think we just stand in mid of ocean, fed stingray, touch them if you are lucky and can. I would love to snorkel and see them, and swim them though. coral garden is fun, similar as other snorkel place. overall, good experience and got nice pictures (we paid).
