We did the Stingray City and Island Tour and it was the BEST experience!! We wanted a tour that my teens and my mom (76, some mobility issues) could all enjoy. This was a perfect mix of the island and its sea life.

Sharon met us at the pier and took us out to Hell Beach. We sent a postcard from Hell and she gave us a short history of the area. Sharon clearly loves the island, its history and people.

We headed out to the Turtle Center where we saw the efforts to repopulate and preserve the native turtle populations. Our guide there (a friend of Sharon’s, Bendel) walked us around, telling us all about the animals and their breeding programs. We were also able to see native birds, sharks, and a crocodile.

Then we headed out with Captain Edmonton and his first mate Charlie to see the stingrays. Other boats were jammed but ours was not, such a great experience. Edmonton brought squid to feed the stingrays, showed us how to safely handle them, made sure we saw the males and females, and even took pictures with our cameras.

We returned to the port and made a final stop at the local Tortuga Rum Cake Factory and store. The baking was shut down for the holiday but Bev showed us the kitchens and explained the process. We sampled a few flavors of cake and their rum. Delicious!

This tour was truly the highlight of our cruise. I highly recommend Native Way.

Great day out - we booked the Stingray City/Snorkeling/Rum Point boat tour and had a fab time! Our crew with Charles and Brent were awesome, both looked after us really well and supported our boys to ensure they enjoyed the snorkeling and Ray experience in particular.

We haven't done a booked tour for several years. We decided to take our kids to Stingray City again now that they are older. Because they were so awesome in the past we used Native Way again. Once again they delivered. Captain Charles and Brent were incredible hosts. We did 2 snorkel stops plus Stingray City. Not only is Native Way great, our party of 12 had the boat to ourselves which was very affordable. Cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you Sharon!!! We will be back.

Charles and Brent were terrific!!! They took us to the sandbar for Stingray City and two other sites. They were very attentive to our whole family and made an extra effort to make sure that we had a fantastic visit. Brent made sure to point out fish and rays and coral and things we would have otherwise missed. Then Charles and Brent made sure that every one got to interact with the stingrays!! This was a trip to remember for our family. We were 16 and we completely enjoyed ourselves. If you want to experience a great time snorkeling, we all would recommend giving Native Way the chance to show your family a wonderful time.

We took the stingray tour this past Friday while our cruise was at Grand Cayman. The staff was very friendly. They provided water and juice for hydration and life jackets for those that needed them. They answered all of our questions and provided a wealth of information. They took great photos so we opted for the photo deal so they placed all of the photos on a flash drive.

Wonderful excursion for the whole family . It was fun , exciting and very educational . I never knew stingrays are so gentle. A plus is the crew serves rum punch , plays island music and is very interactive . Thanks to David , Lee, And Everton for showing my family a grand time in the Caymans . We will definitely use this company again.

I used Native Watersports last week to go to Stingray City! Charles and Brent were super professional and made the experience very special for my family and me. They even helped us hold the stingrays. It was so cool! I would recommend them to anyone visiting the Cayman Islands!!!

We took a tour to Stingray City as a two-part excursion from our cruise. This was our first start of the day. The guides got out in the water with us, and held up the rays so everybody got a chance to touch them and get pictures. We got the opportunity to hold them (like a pizza), kiss them, and get a back massage.

It was a great trip. Before we knew it, our time was up, and we were back to the shore for our dolphin swim.

Bring snacks and drinks, especially if you have a pre-teen who tends to get hangry.

We’ve been visiting Grand Cayman for more than 20 years, and each time we come, we charter a boat trip with Native Way.
Eldon and Sharon are the best and take great care of us.
Their crews are not only expert, but knowledgeable and caring. There wasn’t a question about the island and the waters that Brent and Charles couldn’t answer.
They also took great care with some of our guests who weren’t so comfortable with snorkeling.
We recommend Native Way without reservation.
You will love them!

Charles and Brent were incredible! We booked a tour with them and they really took care of our family. We were able to tweak the day based on what our preferences are. The stingrays at Stingray City were incredible! Brent even made a fresh marinated conch salad on the ride back. Highly highly recommend!
