We would recommend this to families or individuals. We will probably skip it next time we go back to try another adventure but it would be my number 1 recommendation for anyone who has never been to grand cayman

A bus picked us up from our hotel, on time. The boat ride out to the stingrays was pleasant. Once there, you have to jump down in the water. It was maybe waist deep. There are plenty of large stingrays around. The tour guides talk...More

Really a must for your kids! Such an amazing time my kids will never forget! Water is warm and crystal clear. Water is waist deep in most places which makes it perfect to see and hold stingrays.

This is a truly amazing tour. Swim and touch stingrays in their natural environment. The water is shallow to stand in, and the photo opportunities are magnificent.

2nd time to Stingray City. Always fun. Stingrays are gentle and come for the chow. Love this because it is in their natural habitat and not caged like the dolphin encounters.

I’m not sure if your question. If your asking how you get from the port to your excursion, we were on MSC and they coordinate it. We met in the auditorium and they take you by group to your transit to Stingray City.

ONLY by boat. It is far from shore, just a shallow part of the ocean right before the reef and open ocean. You will need to do it with a tour. Check for highly rated companies on TripAdvisor. There are many. Red Sail... More
