This was so cool and scary at the same time but I got over being scared as soon as I touched one. Would love to do it again. We were taken out in a boat to a sandbar and then got in the water and swam with a bunch of wild stingrays. Our guide grabbed on and held it for... More

One of the neatest things I've ever done....mainly because it's interaction with the stingrays 'in the wild' and in their habitat. They seem to enjoy the contact and are curious/friendly. It's a once in a life time experience! Do it!!!!!

You owe it to yourself to see the sting rays. I gave it 4 stars because it's such a tourist attraction now. Still a unique and fun experience. The stingrays are beautiful to watch. You'll never see this many at once even if you dive. It's somewhat like a shark dive except, the sting rays won't mistake you for bait... More

I must admit, I was a bit scared by the thought of going into the water and play with the sting rays. But the nice weather, amazing blue ocean behind the barrier reef and the longing to be eye to eye with this creature pulled me even more. And such a reward. They are amazing creatures to be with, in... More

We've been traveling to Grand Cayman for years, and we do the Stingray City snorkel every time we have new friends join us. I will say that I prefer to interact with wildlife in a more natural environment, but I also know that most people don't have the chance to see stingrays regularly, and it is pretty exciting to be...

This is definitely worth the trip as it is unique to the Caymans. Try to go early or on non-cruise ship days. It's really crowded when the cruise ships come in. Also, listen to your boat captains instructions! Although the stingrays are pretty docile and used to all the tourists, they are still in the wild and you are still... More

This was the best experience in Grand Cayman. The sting ray swam right up to the boat and ate out of my hand. It is great to experience these wonderful animals in their environment.

We booked a tour when we got off of our cruise in port and got a great deal $100 for 4 adults and 2 kids. It was fun to see the sting rays. The guide picks them out of the water so you can hold them, feed them etc. I thought there would be more sting rays swimming around by... More

My boyfriend and I went to Sting Ray City with Captain Marvin's Watersports, and it was a great experience! There were three stops on this tour, the first of which was Sting Ray City itself. The crew took fantastic pictures of everyone (although they cost around $50 per group), and had squid available so you could feed the stingrays. The... More
