Travel to Stingray City by boat on this 3-hour excursion from Grand Cayman. Wade and swim in the shallow water as the free-roaming southern stingrays float through the water. Snorkel at the Barrier Reef or Coral Gardens on this family-friendly outing, which includes round-trip transportation from your hotel on Grand Cayman.
What to Expect
Following pickup from your hotel on Grand Cayman, transfer to the marina where you'll meet your boat. Watch as the island's coastline recedes and sip the provided water or juice during your 30-minute boat ride out to a series of sandbars in clear, shallow water. 

Upon arrival at Stingray City, jump out of the boat into the calm, waist-deep water. The stingrays that congregate here are wild, but are accustomed to being near humans. During your 45-minute stay, watch them pass by and take plenty of photos during your encounter.

Climb back on your boat and head over to the Barrier Reef or the Coral Garden for some snorkeling. Don the provided snorkel equipment and spend about a half hour floating peacefully in the calm waters among coral and schools of tropical fish. Your guide is available for beginner snorkel instruction. 

Return to the marina on the boat, then transfer back to your Grand Cayman hotel at the end of this 3-hour tour.
