We did the starfish, stingray, and coral gardens tour via Captain Marvin’s. Our tour guides were Arthur, Keith, and TJ was the photographer. The coral gardens are absolutely beautiful and untouched since you have to take a boat out to see them. I could have easily stayed there for an hour exploring the coral and fish. I saw a variety of fish and corals, a stingray, and there was even a moray eel! Stingray city was a bit crowded but it is totally fun to watch and feed the stingrays. The guides do a great job educating you about stingrays. Starfish point was the least exciting for me but that’s only because I love to snorkel. It was great to take beautiful pictures in shallow water of the starfish.

We just returned from our cruise where we did the Starfish, Stingrays and Coral Gardens tour. There was 14 of us and the reservation process was very easy and we had no issues. There were 3 men working on the boat during our tour, all were fantastic. They helped me get my baby on and off the boat and did their very best to ensure the safety of everyone on board. We bought the photos that Robert took and they were perfect!! My toddler was too small to participate in the stingrays and snorkeling but she LOVED the starfish...there was something for everyone throughout the tour. The boat wasn't crowded which was a huge plus to us, also. I highly recommend this company,

Highly recommend this excursion! I was bit nervous booking this activity over the internet but wasn't disappointed. They sent me proof of payment same day and all staff I dealt with before, during and after the experience were great. They had made arrangements for us to be taken from the port (we arrived on a cruise ship) to the marina that had our captain and staff on a private boat bring us to Stingray City. While there, the staff shared educational info about the stingrays and let all parties pet and even kiss a stingray. We then went to a reef and were able to snorkel for awhile before being taken to see the starfish. Snorkel gear was provided free of charge.

We really wanted to catch a trip to Stingray City while on our last day and had some issues booking last minute online through TA. So, we called Rowan directly and they told us exactly how to get to the boat so we could be sure to make it. We were greeted by Captain Robert Jr., a young guy who was the nicest and most welcoming host that you could ask for. After a short wait for the other passengers, we were off to Starfish point. It’s an interesting stop for about 15 minutes, then off to Stingray City.

Upon arriving to Stingray City you’ll see a ton of people leaving you to think that it’ll feel crowded, but it didn’t at all. Our stingray wrangler was Beecher and he was phenomenal. I believe he said he’s been doing this for like 15 years? and it shows! He was ver informative and jovial, making sure each person got their turn for pics and to interact with the stingray. Be sure to volunteer quick so you can then snorkel around and look at these things swimming around. Honestly, I thought this experience would be kinda lame, but it was very cool. They are like puppies and love to be held and fed etc.

After a bit there, we stopped at the coral gardens which was ok, not great to me, but others seemed to enjoy it. (I’m a bit spoiled from diving in some amazing places in the world, so take that into consideration.) And again, Beecher was diving down and found us a big lobster to look at. You can tell he loves his job.

Back on the boat, and we made it back in no time. A shout out also to the less vocal but super nice and hard working first mate Andre as well.

I can not recommend this company enough and they are the cheapest company on the island!

A swim with the stingrays is a must do in Grand Cayman! The captain makes sure that everyone who wants gets close up and personal with the sting rays while keeping the stingray and the people safe! A photographer is on hand to take great pictures at a reasonable price and emails them to you right away. It was windy so the snorkeling around coral was difficult and not as much fun and the starfish beach was nothing too great especially if you are from the coast! Overall a good trip!

Loved this, as it included 3 stops and got to experience 3 different adventures in one. Plus they picked us up at the Cruise Port and took us to the boat and then back which worked out perfectly. Enjoyed and would recommend.

We booked this as our cruise did not offer this type of excursion. It really was very interesting and we were looked after well. The stingrays were a joy to watch. We learnt a bit about starfish and could hold them. The snorkelling was fine but unfortunately the sea was not very calm. I would recommend the whole excursion.

I've snorkeled many times which may be why my rating is average. I've experienced outstanding reef snorkeling off a boat many times. This time it was too windy and the place we went hardly had any coral or fish. I also thought we were doing 2 snorkel stops and Singray City. We did 1 snorkel stop, Stingray City and Starfish Cove. I wish we'd been able to have better conditions and snorkel more. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the vest was old school orange, not a snorkeling vest and we didn't have fins, only masks. They also didn't talk about safety as much as is typical. Still had a good time though.

The tour guides were great and knowledgeable but they definitely need a better boat and maybe should take smaller groups especially when we are going to these very popular and already over populated sites. We took a different boat tour with another company and they had a very comfortable boat and the boat and wind conditions and waves were very similar but we did not get miserably soaked before we even got in the water. Our dry clothes and towels were soaked before we even got to do the water activities. I expected to get wet given the activity but it was rough getting splashed the whole way there. Maybe they just need splash guards. Other than that they did a great job and made sure everyone got a chance with the stingrays despite having such a large group.

Transportation provided from Georgetown to
Open boat. Staff is friendly and informative. The first stop we snorkeled, then next stop we spent 30
munutes with sting rays - we fed them by hand, and the brave can hold them. On staff photographer took pics which were available for $25.
