Visit Stingray City — one of the Cayman Islands’ top attractions — on this 3-hour morning or afternoon tour. Accessible only by boat or other watercraft, Stingray City is home to an abundance of free-swimming stingrays, who glide around the clear, shallow water. You'll also visit either Coral Gardens or Barrier Reef to snorkel. This family-friendly experience includes round-trip hotel transportation on Grand Cayman and the boat ride to and from Stingray City.

After hotel pickup and transport to the marina, your tour begins with a 30-minute boat ride out to Stingray City, a series of sandbars in the shallow waters of Grand Cayman’s North Sound where wild stingrays gather. During the ride, sit back and enjoy the views while sipping provided water or juice. When you arrive, hop in the clear turquoise water, which is about waist- to chest-high, to wade near the stingrays. You have approximately 45 minutes to enjoy the experience and take plenty of photos as the stingrays pass nearby.After visiting Stingray City, you'll head over to either Coral Garden or Barrier Reef for snorkeling. Spend 30 minutes swimming around the warm, crystal-clear water, where you'll see colorful coral and fish, including angel fish and parrot fish.Your guide will be there to make sure you enjoy a fun and safe experience.
