“Awesome!! Awesome!! Awesome!!”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Our family went on this excursion and we were Really pleased that we did!! We all had the Best time EVER!! We got on our bus at the port from our cruise ship and were on our way. It was a little ride to get to the boat that took us out to the Stingrays but an enjoyable ride because a frog jumped in the window and made the trip, lol. It was myself along with my husband and our 2 children (ages: 4 and 15). We were on a bus that was packed full!! When we got to the boat to go out to meet the Stingrays there was plenty of room for all of us and none of us were crowded. Our tour guide had all of us FREE Drinks for the whole trip! It was different kinds of punches (non-alcoholic). That was really a nice touch since it was such a hot day!! It was a 30 minute trip out into the middle of the ocean to a sand bar that had tons and tons of Stingrays just Everywhere! There were a lot of boats in the area and a lot of people but still it didn't matter because there were so many Stingrays Everywhere of all sizes! Our tour Guide, Darney made our trip really special and made sure that each and every person and family got to touch, hold and kiss the Stingray! He said if you kiss a Stingray it was 7 yrs good luck so of course we all had to kiss one! I took my water proof camera and got some Amazing pictures underwater of them swimming around everywhere at our feet! There was a lady taking pictures for our group but I didn't need them because I had my own camera taking pictures. After we left the Stingrays we went to Snorkel but we didn't even get in the water here because it was over my little girls head and she didn't wanna get in, even tho there was a life jacket for her but it was okay the Stingrays were amazing enough for us. On the way back the lady that had taken pictures was selling pictures to the others in our group that wanted them for really cheap! This tour was Really Great and I would highly recommend using them! :)

“DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!!!”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Just came back from my second time with this tour group, and am as just as happy as the first trip. Stingray City is truly something to experience, and the staff only made it that much better! I am already planning my next trip, and will be sure to book them again. Well worth the price, and don't forget your picture disc!!!

“Excellent Tour to Stingray City with Cayman Ocean Adventures”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

It was our first time to the Grand Caymans and we heard we had to visit Stingray City. Everyone was right! We went on a tour with Cayman Ocean Adventures and it was well worth the $40! They picked us up right on time and our tour met right where we walked off the dock. The tour was exactly as described. We took a van to the boat then rode approximately 30 minutes out to stingray city which was absolutely breath taking. Our guide gave us flippers and very good instructions on how to keep safe around the sting rays. We had ample opportunity to hold them, pet them, feed them, and give them kisses. The guide was very good at giving everyone turns and making sure that we respected the animals as well. Then we got back in the boat and rode for 10 to 15 minutes to a great snorkel spot. I felt safe the entire time and when we got back they gave us the option of going back to the dock area where we were picked up or if any one wanted they would give us a ride to 7 mile beach where we could get our own taxi back to the dock. Everyone was very polite. We had an excellent time!

“Above and Beyond!!!”
Reviewed 17 January 2013 via mobile

There are many stingray tour companies in the Caymans - and they will pretty much all do the same thing. It's a unique and worthy experience. However, we visited Cayman Ocean Adventures and while our experience was amazing, we witnessed something that was truly over-the-top. A family got on our boat and as we began to pull out to sea, they realized it was 1:00 and they had to be back on their cruise ship at 3:00 - but this was a 2 1/2 hour trip! They remained composed, but you could see the stress begin to take root. They finally mentioned their dilemma to the ship's captain - Justin, who promptly called one of his friends who captained another boat and asked if these folks could catch a ride back with him after they saw the stingrays for a little while. Even though his friend agreed, Capt. Justin called the ship and discovered that the ships time was still set at noon and that it wouldn't close the doors until 4:00. Cayman Ocean Adventures and Capt. Justin went well above the call of duty to ensure these folks were taken care of - and got to enjoy their experience. This is the type of customer service that should be recognized and rewarded!
