We took an afternoon to visit stingray city and snorkel after on nearby reefs. It truly lives up to the hype. Make sure you do this during your visit.

Try to go on a tour that gets you there early in the morning and when a cruise ship is not in port. The guide we had has a special relationship with a coouple of the rays. We were able to hold the ray and...More

So much fun to watch and feed the Sting rays!. Water is waist deep and warm and clear. Take goggles and a underwater camera and have a blast !

Took a private charter there and spent 40 minutes playing in waist-high water in the middle of the ocean absolutely stunning crystal clear water with gentle stingrays swimming between us rubbing next to us a really great experience with nature.

These huge rays are so docile. You can actually pet them and hold them in your arms. But this is a popular activity so expect to see lots of people also. Worth the trip to see them in North Sound on the way to Starfish...More

Stingray City is truly a unique experience and the only place I am aware of where you can interact with stingrays that will swim up to you and let you touch them and experience these beautiful creatures up close and personal

Definitely do this! The sting rays are huge and swim right up against you. It’s fantastic! They get a little more aggressive when you feed them but they’re very friendly.

Great thing to do with the family! KISS a Stingray! FUN Snorkel equipment & life vests available. Feed the stingray squid too.

We went on 8:30 cruise so hoped not too many people but there were 5 other boats. Plenty of room for all though. Everything as promised— touching , feeding and even kissing a ray. Hundres of them swimming effortlessly around. They have a good life.

You simply must go to stingray city when in Grand Cayman! Try to go early before the cruise ship crowds get there! Or late in the afternoon.

Yes, absolutely. Different types of boats, catamarans make trips out to Stingray City and there are different types of ladders into/out of the water but I think that they are manageable. We had a small child on our trip who... More

Hi We were advised to come in our suits, and not to bring valuables. there are no lockers, you leave your things on the boat while in the water. People will go off and on the boat while at the sand bar.

Morning Glory Watersports is what is on my receipt. DON’T USE THEM.
