They set everything up including complimentary shuttle to and from the hotel. We did a tour with 3 crew members... More

I am not usually one for group excursions but was pleasantly surprised with this one. The boat was a perfect size so not over crowded. The crew was very friendly and informative. We went to Stng Ray City and 2 other spots to just snorkel. Very pleasant excursion.

I was told by a resident sitting next to me on the plane to The Caymans that Captain Marvins was the best for going to Stingray City. They have been doing this since the 1950's so I would think they know where the good snorkeling is too. My wife and I did the Stingray City plus two very good snorkeling... More

My friend and I took the Stingray City tour with the two snorkeling stops last week. It was her first time and she had a blast as did I!! We were staying on the island so we did the trip later in the afternoon (when the cruise ship crowds were gone), there were only 10 people in our group. The... More

I opted for the 3 stop snorkel and Stingray city tour which is very good value at $45 pp. A very friendly crew, pick up from your hotel, and a large comfortable boat with fruit punch ( non alcoholic) and fresh water which you will need after swimming. A 30 minute trip across the bay takes you to Stingray city... More

We did the Stingray City 2 stop tour back in 2006 for my wife's 40th birthday and as we were stopping by on a cruise with my parents, we decided to do it again. We booked directly with the company and saved £80 on the cruise boat price, which paid for lunch in George Town. Captain Marvin's are an excellent... More

Captain Marvins tours were well run and reputable. We enjoyed every part of our tour. Hell is a tourist trap but you are stop there for a few minutes. We loved the turtle farm and sting ray city. Awesome for our whole family with kids aged 12 and 16. Our tour guide was great and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time on the three stop snorkel trip. The crew made sure we had a good encounter with the stingrays. They were friendly and accommodating. It was worth the money for a great experience.

This was our third time to Stingray Island. The first time was almost 20 years ago as part of a cruise stop. The last time was 8 years ago as part of a vacation. Our third time was yesterday with Captain Marvin's crew. This was by far the best experience we have had. Part of it might be that the... More

Had a great time with the Capt Marvin crew on our trip to String Ray City plus two additional stops. Very friendly crew who helped passengers and seemed as if they were enjoying themselves as well.
