The ride going to Stingray City is quick and beautiful. The boat crew if very friendly. The photographer on board that captures the pics of your group and the rays is great. They are gentle with the rays, I have seen other tour guides man handle them. The two snorkeling spots were great. Just don't stand on the reef people!... More

I have gone to Stingray City with Captain Marvin's multiple times and have always have a great experience. I have always felt safe and they know great spots for snorkeling. Each captain has been knowledgable about the areas you go. Also, the pictures that they took at Stingray City were great!! Definitely recommend them!

We decided to book the afternoon excursion, which gave us time to shop and look around the city before our tour. It was easy to find Captain Marvin's office (small) and we got out tickets and had to be back to pick up the shuttle at 1:15. We had 13 on our shuttle and they drove us about 12 minutes... More

So glad we used Captain Marvins to go to stingray city! I would definitely call and ask for a time when the cruise ships will not be in port because there were only about 20 people there when we went, and it was totally calm and quiet with just a couple of boats. Our tour guides said on busy days... More

It seems there are many choices on the Island to snorkel and visit Stingray City, so we booked with Captain Marvin's and crossed our fingers. We were lucky! The bus picked us up on time (a good first sign) and drove us to the boat. The crew was happy and smiling. We were also lucky as the crew mentioned that... More

Everything about the Stingray City excursion was amazing. From the tour and information on the short van ride to the snorkeling, interacting with stingrays and service - it was all top notch! The crew is very fun and friendly. It was an experience to remember for sure!

We were from a cruise ship, but did this tour on our own - for way less money, not difficult either. The trip was great, efficient, friendly and a sunny day - not that they have control over that. I would just say that Stingray City is not what it used to be. I stayed in Grand Cayman in 2003... More

We booked a private 3 stop snorkel tour with Captain Marvins for a group of 7--4 adults, 3 kids. I thought that might have difficulty because of the tendering process in Grand Cayman but it was a non issue. Our original tour was a little later in the day but they were able to switch us to a earlier time.... More

We were pleasantly surprised not to be on a very packed boat and be rushed around every where. The crew were great. They made the whole experience of getting serious messages about how to treat the Stingrays fun. Go in the afternoon to avoid the cruise ships & that way you have more space and time with the Stingrays. Would... More
