Enjoy two of the most iconic cruise shore excursions in Grand Cayman all in one affordable and very competitive excursion. Educational, exciting, and just plain fun ... experience the snorkeling highlights of the Cayman Islands! A large stable boat makes this shore excursion great for all ages (compared to the competition). Experience both, the world-famous Stingray City and the Coral Barrier Reef!

The friendly snorkel shore excursion staff will be waiting for you just across from your cruise ship tender terminal in Grand Cayman. They will get you checked in and on the transportation for a short 15-minute drive to the dock where your unique snorkel excursion boat is waiting. You will slip off your shoes and find your spot onboard.

As the snorkel excursion boat moves away from the dock, the English-speaking snorkel shore excursion crew will go over all of the safety information about the boat and your excursion (and of course assist you with all questions you may have about the best way to snorkel in Grand Cayman). Then you can sit back and relax on the way to the first stop about 15 minutes away, world-famous Stingray City (one of the rare spots in the world to interact with free swimming and friendly stingrays and the second largest barrier coral reef. The sequence of activities/snorkel location on this excursion may be changed by the operator in order to provide the best possible snorkeling experience). There is plenty of room for everyone on the boat - shade, sun, bow or bench seating.

When you pull up to the reef, the crew will pass out the snorkel gear (full snorkel equipment included in this Grand Cayman excursion), demonstrate how to best use it and then assist everyone in the water. There is a large platform on the back of the boat and 2 large metal ladders to make water access easy. Note that there is ample snorkeling gear that fits most guests ages 4 years and up. Guests and parents are welcome to bring their own gear and infant life jackets.

The Cayman Islands are renowned for their outstanding marine life and snorkel excursion opportunities. You will have your chance to see and live it for yourself. Snorkeling at the barrier reef is like floating in an aquarium - clear warm water, brightly colored tropical fish, and amazing coral formations. You are welcome to bring a waterproof camera to record your Grand Cayman snorkeling shore excursion memories. You will spend about 45 minutes at the reef before moving to the next stop. 

It is just a short hop across the way to the famous Stingray City. The highly experienced staff will provide you with information about the friendly rays, and how to interact with them (sometimes even feed them), making this an educational, informational, and safe interactive snorkel cruise shore excursion experience in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. 

Stingray City is actually a shallow sandbar-protected marine area where southern stingrays have gathered over the years. What started off decades ago as an area for fishermen to clean their catch, the rays have associated the arriving boats with free fish handouts. But not to upset Mother Nature's balance, the treats are given very limitedly so the rays still must go out and feed on their own. 

Your Grand Cayman Coral Reef Snorkel and Stingray City Shore Excursion staff will help you enter the water to play with the stingrays. Although they are wild marine creatures, they are not aggressive nor do they bite. The guides will be assisting you in the water at all times. Feed, pet, or maybe even plant a kiss on one - there are great photo opportunities. Please bring your own waterproof camera. You will have about 45 minutes at Stingray City.

The shore excursion crew will then assist you back on the boat where you can use the freshwater rinse-off shower, stretch out and relax with some complimentary fruit punch or water as the boat heads back to the dock. Enjoy some music, get up and dance or just soak up some sun. The transportation will take you back to your Grand Cayman cruise ship tender terminal at the end of this shore excursion.

Please note that reservations are not available more than 6 months out.

The drive to the boat was crazy too many people and the bus was crowded and the A/C did not work! The area with the Stingrays was very crowed and so noisy - Guides were doing their best! Return bus was just as bad.

They were very helpful and flexible booking what our group wanted to do. Phaide was great with the reservation and our captain Jason was extremely knowledgeable of the area, waters and stingrays, he even got a huge moray eel to come out at one of the reefs most do not get to see. We were treated like family. I highly recommend.

Stingrays really fun!!
     5/5  (Visited on September 2019)
I was always curious about the Stingrays, therefore I took this tour in Grand Cayman. The tour was perfect, starting with blue sky, calm crystal clear water, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and of course the highlight of the day spending time with the stingrays. They are very gentle with people. Definitely worthwhile.

Stingray City was INCREDIBLE
     5/5  (Visited on February 2019)
We did the Grand Cayman Coral Reef Snorkel and Stingray City Combo. This was by far the most exciting excursion we have ever done. After a short ride to the boat, we enjoyed the scenery of gorgeous houses on the way, as well as the incredible clear water. We arrived at the Stingray area but being it was crowded we were taken to the snorkel site first. Then we proceeded back to Stingray City. Although a higher tide time we were greeted by the instructor in the water for an informative introduction. The do's and don'ts with regard to feeding and handling the stingrays. We got to hold them, kiss them, and feed them. Some of us actually got a Stingray massage as the instructor put one on our back and it truly felt just like he said. We highly recommend this excursion. The only thing I will say is one person had their really young child attempt to feed the stingray. The child was just a toddler. We were told a specific way to hold the food in which as you feel the stingray sucking it out of your hands you were to just let go of it. This toddler was too young to understand and became frightened. So I would definitely say a young toddler is not a good age but a preschool or older who would understand letting the food go would be a great experience. Again I highly recommend this excursion, and would love to do it again the next time we are in Cayman.

Our group was small. 10 people in all. The guides were great answered all questions about the sting rays and reef. After talking to some other people on our cruise we were lucky. They had 50 people and did not get to spend near the time we did with the rays and on the reef.

Amazingly fun!
     5/5  (Visited on October 2018)
We absolutely loved this excursion! Playing with the stingrays was so much fun. They were everywhere and would just come rub against you and let you pet them. It was quite choppy water, so I was a bit nervous of stepping on them but did just fine. I called the guy that was "catching" the stingrays for pictures a Stingray Whisperer. He was amazing at it. The snorkeling was also very fun. Very clear water. The crew was so friendly and fun. They did a great job. I highly recommend this excursion!
