Stingray City is gets my vote for top attraction in all of the Caribbean and Captain Marvin's does it right. Get away from the Tourist trap of the resorts/Red Sail Sports and experience a tour where the staff knows how to ensure you have a first class experience with the Stingrays. Went on the 3 stop snorkel/stingray city trip and... More

We have done Sting Ray City many times with the kids who are now adults with kids of their own. This was by far our best experience! We chartered Miss Anna for three hours for 10 family members ranging in age from 7 months to 69 years to enjoy Cayman together. Daniel and Jared our captain and mate kept us... More

We arrived to Grand Cayman on a cruise ship. Captain Marvin's booking office is really close to the pier and the booking was fast and easy. We then took a bus with a really pleasant driver that took us to the boat. The crew of the Miss Anna was top-notch with a lot of experience and great attitude. They took... More

This is a “must-do” for anyone stopping in Grand Cayman. We booked the trip directly through the company website, which is probably the least expensive way to book with Captain Marvin’s (I looked on 3rd party sites and saw similar offerings at higher prices.) The tourist office is easy to reach from the cruise ship terminal. Just make a left... More

This three stop charter boat was amazing ! the staff was knowledgeable and put you at ease. Stingray City, the Barrier Reef and Coral Gardens was a snorkeler's heaven. Definitely would go again@@@

We were recommended by hotel staff to use Captain Marvin's as their prices for Stingray City Tours is more reasonable. We paid $45.00 CI that includes Stingray City, Reef and Coral Garden's. If you book with Expedia or other sites, it will cost you a lot more. I recommend you visit their website or tell your hotel concierge to book... More

We had a large family group of 32 and were able to book a private charter with Captain Marvin's. We had 3 hours on the water, and stopped at Stingray City as well as 2 snorkel spots, for 30-40 minutes each. We had a great experience, from the time of booking to the actual on the water time. We booked... More

Crew could not have been more accommodating with rough weather and choppy seas. They were so friendly to young children and made experience fun for all. First rate operation from booking to bus drop off. Highly recommend, especially for families.

We (family of four) pre-booked the 3 stop snorkel tour with Captain Marvin's and were at first a little worried because we were told by the staff that the water was rough that day - our only day in Grand Cayman. Captain Marvin's staff did a great job explaining what the water would be like, reviewing other options and offering... More

We recently did the 3 stop snorkel tour with Captain Marvin's and had a great time! We tried to schedule a trip our first day on Grand Cayman and couldn't go due to rough winds; repeatedly tried to go for three days before being able too...luckily before we had to leave! It was still rather rough at Stingray City and... More
