Enjoy a relaxing day with our experienced, friendly Catamaran Shore Excursion crew with a maximum of only 20 guests.

You will climb aboard and settle in for your relaxing trip to Stingray City located about 4 miles offshore - it will take about an hour for the catamaran to motor to the site. Your staff will pass out your snorkel gear and assist you with your snorkel gear and then into the water to interact with these wonderful marine creatures on a sandbar in 3ft of water.

Not only can you snorkel above them but you can also touch, hold and possibly feed the docile rays. This should be on every Grand Cayman visitor's Must-Do list. You will have about an hour in the water with the rays.

You will climb back on board and relax as the boat motors to the Barrier Reef where you will have some excellent snorkeling waiting - it seems like a continuously moving kaleidoscope of colorful tropical fish. You will have approximately 45 minutes to an hour to enjoy the marine life on the coral reef.

When you finish your snorkel, you will sail back to the pier (winds permitting). The crew will serve you light drinks and turn on the music for you to enjoy and relax. There is a restroom and a fresh water shower on board to rinse off.

When you arrive back at the meeting point outside the cruise ship pier, you may shop, sightsee or return to the ship at your leisure.

NOTE: There is a private charter option. The excursion description is the same as above. Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks or beverages on the private charter. See order form.

(Captain) and crew was great. The whole experience was awesome. He made sure my friends and I were comfortable from start to finish. I mostly definitely will book him again. My friends were afraid to get in the water but he assured them they were safe and in good hands. Very nice boat and he made all of his guests fill welcomed.

After looking through a lot of excursions for Grand Cayman we settled on this one. We are so glad we did. Our group was small which you will not get if you go on an excursion sponsored by the cruise ship. We were picked up at the port and taken to the catamaran, where we made our way out to the sand bar (about 30 minutes or so) but the ride was wonderful. When we got to the sand bar, the first thing I noticed was the boats packed full of people. I read reviews about cruise sponsored excursions that talked about how they didn't get to spend much time with the rays...now I know why. Not on this excursion. Our guides made sure we each got to touch, hold and even feed the sting rays. It was totally awesome!! We had already taken pictures and the guide said "no here lets have some with you as a couple and then just the kids." I have so many pictures to remember this day. We then moved on to the reef. We had gone snorkeling in Cozumel last year so I thought it would be like that...Boy was I wrong. These guides took us to the most beautiful reef with the most wildlife I have ever seen. It was like being in an aquarium. We then loaded back up and made our way back to shore where they were going to take us back to the port but since we had so much time he dropped us off at our request at a restaurant for lunch (which was walking distance to the port) I HIGHLY recommend this excursion to anyone who is going to Grand Cayman!! We will be (going) again next time we go back.

We were a little nervous to book this excursion, but so glad we did! Because we booked with shore excursioneer we were able to enjoy our excursion with fewer people. In fact, our tour was booked for us and two other couples...but when one didn't show up, it ended up being a tour on a catamaran with just the two couples. We pulled up to the sandbar with the stingrays, and while it was crowded, our guide was ready with food and even helped make sure we got quality photos and video. When we were ready to leave, we went and found a quiet spot to snorkel before heading back.

(The captain) was a wonderful host on his catamaran. It was the perfect weather to head out to snorkel and paddle with the stingrays on the sandbar. Everything was as described and even better. It is a long day so be sure to bring snacks, only drinks available; we forgot ours and were famished. I would suggest that anti-fog spray be used on the masks for better viewing. We waited a very long time for a tardy family of five and in fact when we were in the van on our way, (he) got a phone call they were now waiting at the pier. He turned around and went back. Would like the start time be closer adhered to. Once we were rolling, it was truly a fabulous time for all. Thanks, all!

Dexter's was great! My family of 5 enjoyed the catamaran and both snorkel spots. Our trip had about 20 people whereas many other excursions packed in the people and didn't look nearly as fun. I highly recommend This!

We didn't want a big party scene. This was a good choice - it was fun without being like Spring Break crazy. The boat was clean and the guides nice. I did not like the rum punch, it was just too strong. But I liked the other drinks.
