I am always wary of out-of-the-country excursions when traveling w/my family of five (husband and three school-aged daughters). We got a personal recommendation from a friend to use Sting Ray Sailing two years ago, captained by Kevin. This year, when we came back to Grand Cayman via cruise ship, we couldn't book Sting Ray Sailing bc of our port arrival time. So, when we asked the very helpful and trustworthy Michelle at Sting Ray Sailing, she recommended Cayman Eco Adventures, which I believe they co-own. Last year, StingRay Sailing took us out to StingRay City via a gorgeous 40' catamaran. We were one of only three families on board. Safety is of the utmost for Captain Kevin and his crew. This time we took Cayman Eco Adventures "fast" boat, so we had more sights to see. We were the ONLY family booked that day, so it was basically a private charter for the regular cost of a tour. And we literally were the only ones, I am not exaggerating, our family of five alone w/no other boats, out on the sand bar at Sting Ray City. Our daughters ages 8 and 11 fed the sting rays. That is what you call a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Captain Kevin and his crew educate you about the stingrays and how to interact with them. Next, we visited a lovely reef and snorkeled a bit. My daughters loved it. Last, we ended our day at Starfish Point, where we dropped anchor and were able to walk ashore to see starfish. What an amazing day. We were back within three hours in plenty of time to make our tender back to our ship. Michelle told us they cater exclusively to and monitor ships' port arrival times/departures, so no worries. Cayman Eco Adventures really is a first class, professionally run company. I am exceedingly choosy and cautious and felt completely at ease w/ Captain Kevin and crew. Michelle exemplified the utmost in customer service. They provide snorkels, masks, fins, and flotation devices. Both boats have a head (a bathroom on board), and they provide complimentary water, fruit, and sodas/beers for a small fee. I have and would recommend them to everyone.
