“A lot of fun!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

The condo owner we rented our condo from recommended Captain Alan. My daughter and I booked a trip to Sting Ray City and a couple of reefs. Captain Alan picked us up from our condo. When we arrived we were joined by 2 couples who's morning trip with another company was cancelled.

Captain Alan and his assistant Joey were very knowledgable about the water and sea life surrounding Grand Cayman. We really enjoyed listening to their stories and learning about the Sting Rays, local fish and Conch. During one of the snorkel stops I saw a huge school of fish. It was a wall of blue. It was really something to see.

Captain Alan shared some fresh Conch and freshly squeeze lime with us. It was so good! He is such a kind and gentle man.

Joey found a conch shell for my daughter and another passenger and sat at the back of the boat cleaning it for them. He also explained the difference between different conch species and how they grow. It was the little extra things that both of them did that made our tour so enjoyable.

During this trip we also went to Star Fish Beach. I would highly recommend Charter Boat Headquarters.

“I can not say enough in one sentence ...We are so happy to found Captain Allan and Joe..”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We were lucky enough to miss our boat with one of the big guys and meet Captain Allen and Joey, his boat is spacious and stable. His knowledge comes easy for a man with his own experiences to share, you can't do better than this,we had so much fun. And can't stop talkin about how nice Captain Allen and Joey are,

“Captain Allan and First Mate Joe provided an amazing and fun filled trip.”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Captain Allan and First Mate Joe lead our group of four on a private excursion to swim with the stingrays and then snorkeling in deeper waters. They came highly recommended and were even more fun, informative, and professional than one could hope for. The excursion was the most special part of our visit to Grand Cayman, was a great value, and is certainly a must do!

“Wonderful day with Captain Allan Ebanks”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Just had a wonderful day on a stingray and snorkeling cruise with Captain Allan. A good friend who has cruised with him for years referred us to him. He was so knowledgeable and fun! I can't believe the amount of information that he and his first mate shared about the wildlife.....and the history of the Cayman Islands. I'll take this tour again!

“Your family in good hands.....”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

I believe we've taken five trips with Captain Allen over the last 3-4 years and each trip has been wonderful. We have twin 9 year olds and Captain Allen makes our kids feel at ease and helps them learn about aquatic life. The trip to Stingray City excited the kids but they were a bit afraid of the stingrays until Captain Allen's assistant literally grabbed one for the kids to pet, then they were all over the place, snorkeling to watch the stingrays. Captain Allen is definitely one of the good guys in this world.....
