See the famous Stingray City then snorkel at one of Cayman's best sites - the captain makes the choice for the day on this Grand Cayman Stingray City Shore Excursion in the Cayman Islands!

The friendly snorkeling shore excursion staff will be waiting for you just across from your cruise ship's terminal. Your transportation will take you for a short drive to the dock where your snorkel excursion boat is waiting. Get ready for a fun shore excursion time in Grand Cayman!

Your first snorkel cruise excursion stop will be the world famous Stingray City Sandbar where you get in the waist-deep water. The experienced guides will instruct you on how to touch and hold. You may have the opportunity to kiss or even possibly feed these gentle, docile rays. You have the option to stay on the boat and just watch if you wish. The rays pose no harm to the guests who visit and are very used to interacting with humans.

After your encounter with the friendly Grand Cayman stingrays, the shore excursion captain will take you to for a great snorkeling experience. He will make the determination, according to the daily conditions. The guide will pass out the snorkel gear, demonstrate how to use it and then lead you into the water to explore. Cayman boasts some of the best snorkeling cruise excursions around so regardless of the sites chosen, you will be treated to a colorful display of marine life. Your snorkeling time is approximately 45 minutes.

Bottled water will be served on-board. The Grand Cayman snorkel shore excursion captain will take the boat back to the pier afterwards where the transportation will drop you back off at your Grand Cayman cruise ship pier.

Note: There is a variety of boats used ranging from 32' to 60'.

Loved it
     5/5 Visited in November 2017

We were unsure of using an outside vendor, we were on a cruise. ship and had only used their vendors before. This excursion was GREAT. Was much better than we had expected. Stingray city was amazing. The crew made sure that we knew what to do when we got in the water. They made sure that everyone was comfortable and it was great. The snorkeling afterwards was a good experience also. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

If you have ever wanted to experience stingrays up close and in person, this is the excursion for you. Can't say anything negative about what we experienced with this trip. From the booking to the guides, this was hassle free. Speaking of the guides, they are amazing, patient and helps everyone. If you have never swam with the stingrays, this is a must.

Went on this excursion and had an amazing time. Bought the pictures that they took for $60 and they were worth the price. Guides were so friendly and really cared, doing what ever it took to make it special. After playing with the stingrays they took us snorkeling. So much fun!

awsome excursion
     5/5 Visited in February 2017

This is a first class operation. Our ship had to tender on the opposite side of the island because of weather and they were there waiting to pick us up. They take you on a 15 min. boat ride to the sand bar where you get out in waist deep water and really interact with the stingrays which is awesome. They are very gentle and the captain does an excellent job getting everyone involved. After that, they take you about 1/4 mile to snorkel for about 30 mins.

My wife and I went on this excursion and it was wonderful. The entire staff was 100% professional and friendly. The transportation and equipment was great. It's a very gentle excursion for children and seniors as well. A first class company all the way. I highly recommend.

Everything was as described
     4/5 Visited in June 2016

Was a good day, short ride to the boat then out to the sand bar, lots of other people and boats but was not crowded and are PLENTY of stingray. Guides helped us interact, hold and KISS the stingray. Once they were sure we were all satisfied with our stingray interaction we went a little ways away to the snorkeling which was also a good time. Plenty to see under the sea:-)

Great time and very comfortable
     5/5 Visited in June 2016

This was exactly as described. You will meet up the street a couple blocks from the pier and take a mini-bus for a little ride to a boat. From there you will take the boat for 20 mins to the sandbar area with the stingrays. After that you will go snorkeling nearby the stingrays. The boat crew was very polite and made everyone comfortable handling and being around the stingrays. As fun as that was, the snorkeling was amazing! The water is so clear and the views seemed unreal. Well worth it.
