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.

Very friendly boat crew
March 16, 2020
Despite having a rough day to visit the sting rays, the boat crew were excellent and ensured that everyone got to touch, hold and get a picture with a stingray. The boat was clean and the transfers were well organized. It was much less expensive than booking on the cruise ship, and the group size was much smaller, making it very enjoyable.

Fantastic Experience!

We were on the boat with 10 other people (ages included children and seniors). I really liked that we had a nice small group compared to some of the other companies that brought out huge amounts of people on their boats. The staff were extremely friendly and spent a lot of time with us. I had never snorkeled before, and asked for a life jacket which they secured around my waist. It was so easy to snorkel and we saw a huge green eel, rays, and many fish. The boat captain retrieved several conch shells and passed them out to us to take home. The stingray portion of the snorkel trip was amazing and we were in waist deep water and the rays are so tame and we took home great pictures & memories. The staff sold us an SD card with our photos but also air dropped all of the photos onto our iPhones ($50). Bargain price for a once-in-a-lifetime experience & getting those great photos! I highly recommend this excursion to anyone and would do it again if we get back to the Grand Cayman Island.

We had an incredible time with Captain Marvin’s! Our boat captain was very kind and very knowledgeable. My family went with a similar Carnival excursion and from what they tell us ours was much better. We spent more time with the stingrays and in the water. Juice was provided to us on the boat, and the crew were all very nice and accommodating. We would go back again for sure!!

Stingray City & One Snorkel Stop

Stingray City & One Snorkel Stop excursion was well organized & professionally managed. The stingrays performed on a sandbar like household pets. The snorkel spot had schools of fish in extremely clear water. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who is comfortable in the Ocean.
