Description

  • Round-trip transportation from your cruise ship tender terminal in Grand Cayman!
  • Local experienced Grand Cayman captain and crew!
  • Boat ride on a comfortable vessel with marine toilet on board!
  • Entrance fee to the Marine Park of Cayman Islands!
  • English speaking, friendly snorkel excursion guides!
  • Guided snorkeling at: Stingray City, Starfish point, and Coral Gardens!
  • Snorkel set including: Varied sized fins, sanitized snorkel, silicone mask, and vest!
  • Bottled water on the boat!

You will enjoy comfortable transportation, a fun boat ride, and visit three separate locations, each one offering something different from the next - the famous Stingray City, Coral Gardens, and Starfish Point. All snorkeling gear is included and you will be picked up and dropped back off at your cruise ship tender pier.

This excursion begins at your Grand Cayman cruise ship tender pier where you will find your guide waiting to check you in then get you on-board a comfortable, air-conditioned, shuttle bus. You will enjoy a 15-minute drive to the Safe Haven Yacht Club where you will be welcomed onboard by the English speaking crew. You will have lots of room to get comfortable on the 48 ft boat and then head out to the exciting Stingray City just a short 25-minute boat ride away.

At Stingray City you can stand on a shallow sandbar and find yourself being introduced to a friendly Southern Ray. Your guide will instruct everyone the do's and don'ts with the rays. Then they will help you into the water. Although large, there is nothing to be concerned with, they have become accustomed to people and are quite friendly. Don't be surprised if you get a little hug as you are shown how to feed them by your guide who will be with you in the water at all times. You may choose to snorkel over the rays if you wish as well. All snorkel gear is provided on-board including masks, snorkels, fins as well as snorkel vests for those who wish to use one. The crew will show you how to use it all. Once your fun with the rays is completed, the crew will help you back on-board.

Next, you will go off to Coral Gardens where the water is only about 10 feet deep (3 meters). The crew will help you into the water for another unique experience. Snorkel over top of colorful coral that is home to a wide variety of tropical fish. With crystal clear water that remains warm, you are sure to enjoy all the sights. Your guide will make sure to point out anything of particular interest so you won't miss anything. Note that guests will not be able to touch the bottom, stand on or touch the coral reef.

Finally, you will hop back on-board for quick 15-minute ride to Starfish Point. Known for its crystal clear waters, you can see the starfish that populate this area. Marvel at their delicacy and their incredible details. Calm waters with lots of sun are what draw the starfish to the point. At each stop, you will have approximately 45 minutes of snorkeling and fun in the water.

Once your time comes to an end, you will be brought back to your Grand Cayman cruise ship tender pier.

Just heading home from the cruise and wanted to give a shout out to Captain Stan and his crew. We had a great day in Grand Cayman. My 11 year old and 17 year old had a great time snorkeling and swimming with the stingray. Thanks for the great ride and all of the info about the island. Also, thanks for the tip to eat at paradise restaurant. A beautiful spot to stop at on the way back to the boat.

The meeting point was easy to locate, driver was informative on the way to the marina, and the guides on the boat, Manny and Winston, were awesome. They were informative, played island music during the trip which set the mood and Winston, Winston handed out the snorkeling gear and he walked about the catamaran studying everyone's feet. It amazed us that he could look and correctly guess everyone's fin sizes! They did an awesome job at stringray city and took pictures with our camera's as well as theirs (the picture prices were reasonable). Snorkeling was so much fun and seeing the starfish was neat. Very well organized, we had a wonderful time on this excursion!

This excursion was top notch and by far a crowd favorite. Although, it was a little difficult locating the meeting place, locals were extremely helpful! The directions stated to look for an employee in a navy suit, the employee was in regular clothes, which caused confusion. Once on our way, we truly enjoyed snorkeling on the reef. The captain of our ship was top notch and made sure we had a great time! He took great care of all of the passengers and was wonderful with our children. Stingray City was amazing and we were able to hold, kiss and take photos with a stingray. We were then off to Starfish Point where we enjoyed waist deep water and found many many starfish to hold and play with. By far our favorite excursion!

This excursion was amazing! The ride from the port to the boat was a drag since we had to stop at different resorts to pick up other guest. Our boat captain and deck hand were super nice and helpful. Equipment was very clean and like new, boat was in great condition and very comfortable. We loved snorkeling the reef, saw lots of fish, some sting rays and tons of pretty coral. The rays were very neat, it was a wonderful experience. The photographer was super sweet but I thought the prices were a little high. Overall super great time!

This is a great excursion. We were suppose to meet around noon. But the tenders for our ship were going really slow. We were 45 minutes late party of 8 but no fear they waited for us. We hopped a van and headed to the dock. Got on our boat and headed to Coral Gardens. Saw tons of fish plus 2 stingrays. It was a great time. Our guides were great and very entertaining. Next stop Stingray City. We have been there a few times and this did not disappoint. Tons of rays swimming around. When it came time to feed them they were all over. It was great. Next stop Starfish Island. There were live Starfish all over. I definitely recommend this excursion. A lot of people on this excursion did not tip and these 2 guys really deserved it. So if the guides do a great job please tip them, they deserve it.

Unfortunately, the waters were rough on the day we went, but it was still so much fun! The guides were nice and patient, the stingrays were awesome, and overall we loved the experience. The only reason I didn't give the excursion a 5, is because they didn't give us any snorkeling instruction. They just handed us a mask and fins and told us to jump in.
