This great snorkeling excursion begins at your Royal Watler cruise ship tender pier where your English speaking snorkel guide will greet you and lead you to a comfortable air-conditioned transportation. You will head out on a 15-minute ride to the Safe Haven Yacht Club where your experienced captain will welcome you aboard the 48 ft boat for the 25-minute ride to your first stop at the world famous Stingray City sandbar, one of the main attractions of Grand Cayman!

Once you arrive at Stingray City, you'll be able to get in the water and enjoy interacting with the docile Southern Rays. They are quite friendly and have become accustomed to humans over the years. You'll be able to feed and interact with them, which is an experience not soon forgotten. The snorkel guides will go over how you should handle the rays and be with you at all times in the water. 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 floatation vests for those who wish to use one. The shore excursion 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.

Then you're off to your second snorkel cruise excursion stop, Coral Gardens. Once you arrive at the site you will enjoy a guided snorkel over top of a beautiful reef system that's teeming with colorful tropical fish. Your guide will make sure to point out anything of interest as they lead you on a guided snorkel. Do not forget your camera to capture all of the beauty. The crew will assist you back on the boat for the return trip back. Cold bottled water will be provided throughout this Grand Cayman cruise excursion.

When this great day comes to an end, you'll be taken back to your Grand Cayman cruise ship tender terminal with long lasting memories of a great eco-adventure!

Drew, Winston, and Kyla did an amazing job as our guides. The snorkeling was great, stingray city was fantastic, and starfish point was awesome. I definitely recommend doing this excursion if you’re in George Town.

Neat experience
     4/5  January 2020
The trip was nice to be able to see the stingrays but standing in a group of 40+ people to touch the one sting ray They catch was a little weird for me. Plus there is 10 other boats around doing the same thing so on this little sandbar with 400 people to see the sting ray isn’t quite as natural as I wanted to see them. The snorkeling was great on the trip, the capitan picked a spot with no other people around and we got to spend 30 mins there checking of fish and coral. The starfish stop was neat seeing the starfish and getting to hold them but kind of the same as the stingray, each boat there is just there to see the starfish so the boat helper gets off the boat and goes and gets a few starfish to pass around the group. The captain and helper were great and really nice! I don’t have kids but on the ride home they were letting the young kids take turns "driving" the boat and they were loving that. The boat did get back to the dock 45 mins later than planned so we had to run back to our cruise ship so we didn’t miss the boat, we were supposed to have 30 mins to spare and ended up getting back 15 mins late, luckily they had not left yet.

amazing sites and service

Awesome staff! The sites were great and they explained everything very well and controlled the crowd well. The pictures were great as well. Would have loved to have a more remote location for stingray city as there were a dozen boats there but that’s why it is a tourist attraction. Would love to do it again and would definitely go with (them).

Loved stingray tour!
     5/5  September 2019
This was a great experience, I was determined I was going to stay on the boat and look at everybody else get in, but the crew was so nice and gave us life jackets, (cause I can’t swim) but it wasn’t that deep and talked us through everything. Well, I was not the only got in, but I held a stingray. It was awesome I will never forget this experience. The crew was very knowledgeable!!! Highly recommended. This was the highlight of the cruise for me!

Great Time beyond our expectations

Truly one of the best excursions we have ever been on. The ocean was really choppy and it was very windy, but we still had a great time. It was a lot of fun and the crew was terrific.

Best snorkeling trip of my life
     5/5  October 2016
What an amazing day we have while on this tour, both of the places where we snorkeled are something out of this world, you will never imagine how used to humans stingrays are, my children were surprised about how close you get to be. I preferred the second stop better because I could see lots of colorful fish. The guides were incredible and made us feel safe all of the time, I truly appreciate it especially as a mother. Everyone in my family agreed that this was the best excursion we took during our cruise.
