This is a truly amazing tour. Swim and touch stingrays in their natural environment. The water is shallow to stand in, and the photo opportunities are magnificent.

Our children were scared to get in the open water with the stingrays and we’re clinging onto us for dear life! With that said, the crystal clear water, soft white sand, and the calmness of the ocean was absolutely amazing. Our tour leader put a...More

2nd time to Stingray City. Always fun. Stingrays are gentle and come for the chow. Love this because it is in their natural habitat and not caged like the dolphin encounters.

A must when going to the Grand Cayman. The fact that the stingrays come in the middle of the ocean with no enclosure is quite amazing.

I was a little intimidated by the Stingrays, but overall it was an exceptional experience and something wonderful to witness firsthand. We took a catamaran out of Rum Point which was very close to the Stingray City. The guides were so very helpful and accomodating....More

This is a MUST DO when you visit. The stingrays almost act like kittens as they search for food and attention. We were given easy to follow safety instructions and then good to go. We were given hugs (and kisses) with great photo ops. They...More

A very touristy area and then the cruise ships come in, it is a bit hectic in the sandy area where the stingrays come to eat and play. However, despite the crowds, the stingrays don't seem to be bothered. They are like puppies, the more...More

I’m not sure if your question. If your asking how you get from the port to your excursion, we were on MSC and they coordinate it. We met in the auditorium and they take you by group to your transit to Stingray City.

ONLY by boat. It is far from shore, just a shallow part of the ocean right before the reef and open ocean. You will need to do it with a tour. Check for highly rated companies on TripAdvisor. There are many. Red Sail... More

This is a natural sandbar where all stingrays and fish come and go as they please. It was noticed years ago that the sting rays were collecting where the fishermen were cleaning their fish. Now it has become an attraction... More
