Our family of seven was visiting Grand Cayman while on a cruise and decided to book (in advance) with this company. We are glad we did because we had an amazing time. We stopped at Stingray City first only to realize it was super busy, so Captain Chip decided we would go snorkeling first. We were taken to a reef... More

Captain Chip always makes sure that his boats go out with lots of bait/fish/squid to feed the stingrays. They swarm around and make for the best experience! Also hired one of the boats for a 3 hour private trip to some of the best snorkeling around the island. Thanks to them for a great vacation.

We had this as our primary excursion in Grand Cayman. Captain Chip & First Mate Chris gave us not only the best experience with the rays, but provided an smaller more welcoming tour that was both economical and better than any other tour on the water that day. HANDS DOWN! These guys BRING THE RAYS! Their approach is unique and... More

Chip and Chris put on a magnificent trip to amazingly beautiful water and reefs. Unlike other tours, whose guides take one stingray and have their passengers take pictures with the one stingray, Chip and Chris attract a large group of rays who swim freely about. Food for the rays is also provided so that we can actually feed the rays.... More

This was our first trip to Grand Cayman and this day was the highlight of our cruise. I spent hours researching different tour companies and hope to save others some time by saying "book with Stingray Sailing!". All the comments were true and we were so pleased by the way that Chip and his team handled these beautiful Stingrays! From... More

This was a wonderful trip- small group so there for you get a more personal trip. Chip was very friendly and helped those of us a little unsure to be comfy with the experience. The pictures that were taken on the boat are so cool too. I would totally go again and not even think about going on a bigger... More

We went out with Chip and his deck hand Gilligan.(AKA Chris )From the start we knew we were in for a fun time. The boat was not over crowded at all. Chip is a very funny honest guy who has lived in the Caymans most of his life. He respects the wildlife 100% and that was very important with my... More

From start to finish, I felt like my holidays were in good hands because of Chip and his crew. We were picked up from our cruise ship on schedule and brought over to the catamaran. The whole trip was explained to us in great detail and they made sure we were hydrated with plenty of bottled waters. Don't worry, there's... More

Chip was our Captain and he did a great job. He patiently answered our questions. He also explained how the stingrays circle around us and that we can touch but not grab them. Grabbing stresses them out, and they leave the area. I mention this because we saw other tour companies grabbing and holding the rays for the tourists. They... More
