You will begin your fun-filled shore excursion right inside your Grand Cayman cruise ship tender terminal where you will find your guide and a comfortable, air-conditioned, shuttle bus waiting for you. You will enjoy a scenic 15-minute drive from the terminal to the nearby Safe Haven Yacht Club where you will be welcomed on-board a 48 ft boat (14 meters) by the English speaking snorkel excursion crew. Pick a spot and get comfortable while your experienced captain then heads out to the exciting and famous Stingray City on a short 25-minute boat ride.

Once you arrive at Stingray City you will find yourself on a shallow sandbar being introduced to the numerous friendly Southern Rays. In fact, you may well meet many of these gentle stingrays who have become accustomed to humans over many years. Don't be surprised if you get a little hug as you are shown how to feed them. Bottled water is provided on the boat for guests. You may choose to snorkel over the rays if you wish as well. All snorkel gear is provided 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 your safe shore excursion boat. You will have approximately 45 minutes in the water with the rays.

Then your captain will take off for Coral Gardens reef where the water is only about 10 feet deep (3 meters). The shore excursion 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 snorkel excursion guide will make sure to point out anything of particular interest so you won't miss anything. You will have approximately 30 minutes snorkeling at Coral Gardens. When your snorkel time is completed at Coral Gardens, you will be returned to the boat dock where you’ll board the transportation for a brief drive to the famous Grand Cayman Turtle Farm, your last stop on this Grand Cayman Stingray City, Coral Gardens Snorkel and Turtle Farm Excursion.

Once you've arrived at the Turtle Farm you will have the chance to hold and learn about these fascinating creatures. You can also take a guided walk through the educational center at no extra cost. There is a turtle touch tank and wading pool for some hands-on learning. Young or old or in between, there is much to see, do, and learn at the Turtle Farm. Guests will enjoy approximately 1.5 hours at the Turtle Farm. Note: The lagoon is not included in this excursion.

When this exciting Grand Cayman Excursion comes to an end you will be dropped off at your cruise ship tender terminal, enjoy!

Our cruise ship got into port and was only in port 6 hours, so we were not able to do the Turtle Farm Experience; but the fact that we had a small group for the Sting Rays and Star Fish portions made up for the experience with my family. The guides were great, especially with the kids around the large stingrays. The photographer and second mate talked to them and made them comfortable about what to expect about the experience.

Had a great time full of memories for our twin 6 year olds. Led by captain Darney (sp?) and our guide Winston we were able to enjoy time among the stingrays and sea stars. These lovely guides went out of their way to make sure we were having fun and that we were happy with our experiences. Two thumbs way up!

Our family and I took this tour recently while cruising. This was our first time visiting the Cayman Islands and had heard a lot about Stingray City. Sincerely, this is the best tour I ever had visiting different islands in the Caribbean. The stingrays are friendly and docile animals yet still very much in the "wild". The snorkeling areas were awesome and saw a lot of colorful fishes. The turtle farm was an educational stop but I think it is too commercialized and did not like seeing the turtles kept in small pools. Excellent service *****

We had a great experience with this trip. We were picked up at the meeting point and off we went on the bus to our boat trip to see the stingray\'s. The crew that took us were excellent. They instructed us about the stingray\'s and off in the water we went. We got to hold them and feed them. Then we went on another short boat ride to snorkel. The fish were plentiful, but the variety was limited at our location. It was raining pretty hard, so we skipped the turtle farm.

We got more than we expected! The snorkeling was good once I learned to use a life jacket around my waist. It helps you float on your stomach and see everything better. Before that, small waves plus my unbalanced ness caused some water to come inside my snorkel. Not fun! But afterwards it was good with the life jacket. The stingrays are amazing! I was a little disappointed having read some reviews about tours being made to circle up because that’s what they did to us. But this wasn’t bad at all. You were free to move around and we got to do everything possible with the rays. We held them, got all the pictures we wanted. It was good! Then we went to starfish beach. I wasn’t expecting this one. It was a nice addition though. You only stay 20 minutes or so, but that is plenty of time to see them and play with them. Then we went to the Turtle Center. We avoided any guided tours after reading reviews how it slowed some folks down. We went straight to where we could hold them. Totally cool! They’re so sweet. We saw babies that were Just born. Saw the lagoon. We almost decided to spend the day only at the turtle center, but I am glad we included the stingray city tour. The turtle center would’ve become old being there all day. This is definitely a good excursion. I would recommend it and I would do it again.

One of the Best Experiences of your life!!

This is a MAJOR highlight of our family's Disney Cruise!! My family has been on many vacations and this IS one of the Most Memorable Experiences!!! My husband, two boys (7 and 9), my in-laws (62 and 63) and I had the best day! Started out snorkeling in a great spot with lots of beautiful fish (triggers, tang, and many others) and stingrays in the most beautiful, clear ocean! Then swimming, holding, kissing, and feeding the stingrays was one of the best experiences of a lifetime! Our guide, Manny, is highly experienced and very knowledgeable about the ocean, fish, snorkeling, stingrays, starfish, etc. Our family had the best time and Keylin, Manny's assistant, captured our memories with lots of beautiful photos! Then went to Starfish Island with tons of small to large starfish you can hold while their under water. My boys loved it! After this amazing experience we visited the Turtle Farm (very short visit since spent most of our time in the ocean) since our family loves turtles. Lots of beautiful Green Sea Turtles and you are able to go into a small tank and hold small turtles. Short, but great experience for our family! THIS IS A MUST EXCURSION :-)

The excursion was so much fun, the meeting instructions need to be updated, we had a really hard time finding the meeting point as it had changed from the original instructions. However, other than that, it was awesome seeing the turtles, garden reefs, and stingrays. Seeing the stingrays was by far the most interesting part of the excursion, the crew was awesome

My husband and I really enjoyed our excursion. The only reason for the 4 stars was we couldn't do the Turtle Farm because time didn't allow. We were refunded partial money so all was good. We did snorkeling, Stingray City, and Starfish Beach. Our driver Steve was great and Manny our boat guide was excellent too.

This is an excursion I recommend everyone do at least once in their lifetime. As we have done the stingray excursion previously in the Bahamas we figured it was going to be the same. We were very wrong. We started out on a nice boat ride then we stopped to snorkel on a beautiful reef. While we were there 3 sting rays swam around us. That was just the beginning. We then loaded up and headed to a very large sand bar. We exited the boat and before we knew it there were tons of big beautify stingrays swimming all around us. They are such sweet creatures. They rub against you, swim around you and allow you to hold them and even kiss them. We fed them and they were as gentle as can be. Our two tour guides were always giving us great info. After we left there we headed to Starfish Island where we found so many beautiful starfish. We could hold them in the water. It was so much fun. The turtle farm is a neat place but there really is not that much to do. We only stayed about 15 minutes but we did get the opportunity to get into a tank with baby sea turtles and pick them up. Not sure I could do it again but I do suggest it as quick stop.
