Stingray City and Snorkel Tour ( 2-Stops Adventure)
This was our first trip to Stingray City and it was wonderful. The crew was professional and personable. We so enjoyed picking up starfish at Starfish Point and holding and kissing the stingray. Snorkeling was a little rocky this day but we felt safe near the boat. Would definitely recommend this trip to others.

Starfish, Stingray and Coral Garden (3-Stop Adventure)
This trip was a fun experience!!!. Stingray city was an adventure and an opportunity to get up close with the stingrays. This tour offers a little something for everyone - the last adventurous can still get an opportunity to wade in the water at the starfish beach and the more daring can try a little snorkeling. The operators are friendly and competent and make the trip even more enjoyable

Private Charter 32ft Express Cruiser. Stingay City, Coral Reef Snorkeling
Our family of 5 children and 6 adults went on a private 4 hour tour of Stingray city, starfish point, and snorkeling. The crew was excellent. They had snorkel gear in all sizes and life jackets to fit all of our children as young as age 3. We had a great time!

Stingray City Experience from Grand Cayman (2-Stops Adventure)
I only paid 40 per person, stopped at stingray city, snorkel area and starfish beach same as every tour, so don’t pay for others charging more!! Amazingly beautiful waters and such cool creatures. Photos are pricey but they come out good so it’s worth it. Best day of our vacation, definitely do it!

How to Get to Stingray City

Stingray City is located on a natural offshore sandbar between Morgan Harbor and Rum Point in the North Sound area of Grand Cayman. Most tours include hotel pickup or transfers from accommodations in the George Town and Seven Mile Beach areas, followed by a 20-minute boat cruise out to the sandbar.

When to Get There

With area waters at 70°F (21­°C) nearly year round, Stingray City is open daily and tours take place several times daily. To avoid the crowds, opt for an early morning time slot before the cruise ships dock or a late afternoon tour after the larger tour groups have left.

Swimming with Stingrays

The fenceless swimming areas at Stingray City allow wild stingrays to come and go as they please, but the rays are accustomed to human presence and often arrive in large numbers when they hear boats arrive. Tour participants may have the opportunity to feed, touch, and interact with the wild stingrays under supervision, but instruction will be provided to ensure you stay safe and do not disturb the rays’ natural habitat or offer inappropriate foods.
