Your boat tour takes you to three locations around Grand Cayman, the highlight of which is Stingray City, a section of water (no more than 5 feet / 1.5 meters deep) and sandbars home to a population of southern stingrays. 

When you arrive, learn about the proper behavior when you're in the water from the boat crew, and then hop in with a provided snorkel and mask to swim near the stingrays. Next, head to the Coral Garden, a nearby location when you can swim among some of the Cayman Islands' most colorful reefs. 

Your third stop is snorkeling with starfish, where you can relax in shallow water and look at different species of starfish. This is an especially popular activity for young kids.

Really enjoyed this. There were only 20 people,so it's a smaller group which I prefer. Just enough time at each stop to see everything. Great and friendly crew. Would totally recommend.

After our cruise line canceled our Grand Cayman excursion, I booked this one for my family. It was excellent! We went to three different spots. One was Coral Gardens that was lovely and had tons of fish and a few sting rays. Then we went to Stingray City where the rays were everywhere! We got lots of great photos with the rays and got to feed them. Last stop was Starfish Point…where we got to pick up several large starfish. I’m so thrilled that the cruise line canceled our trip…because I believe this one was even better. You won’t be disappointed!

Our starfish, stingray, and snorkeling adventure far exceeded our expectations! My wife and our three boys had a great time. Hesitant at first because of the number of tours out there, the price and amount of time on the tour was perfect for our family.

Worst Boat Ride

We booked this tour after reading previous reviews which were all positive. This one is not! The tour was scheduled to leave at 9:15am. We didn’t leave until closer to 10am due to waiting on buses with more guests. The water was really choppy when we got to Stingray City. After 20 minutes of trying to park the boat, hitting 2 boats in the process and then having people get in unsafe waters, I was extremely disappointed. We went to the snorkel location, at which point so many people were feeling seasick, that the majority of the guests didn’t even snorkel. Including myself and my children. Our saving grace was the starfish beach, but due to the waste of time in the beginning of the trip, we were only there for a short time. I would not recommend this tour group. The captain and crew were oblivious to the safety of the guests on board.
