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

Had a blast
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.

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
