I was nervous about being in the water with the stingrays (not a huge fan of "creatures" swimming near me), but they were gentle and SO soft! Our guide let each person/couple hold an animal and feed if wanted. The water at Stingray City was...More

This was, by far, my favorite thing at Grand Cayman. Our tour guide was a blast, he made sure and answered all of our questions, kept us laughing and made sure everyone was having fun. There were several times he would change out the stingrays...More

We were considering taking the boat to Stingray City, but we were able to see stingray at Rum Point while snorkeling on our own.

Go with White Sands outfitter. They run a 7am trip which is the first one on site and no cruise ships in at that early time. The guide (think his name was Chris) is a jolly fellow that really enjoys showing you the stingrays. Great...More

You have to take a boat. Pretty sure you can only go to the sandbar by tour. Pick a small tour as it is more personal and in morning so not so many other boats are around.
