We booked Captain Crosby on a recommendation from a lady at our hotel. This was by far our best experience on the island. Captain Crosby was knowledgeable, kind and played a great guitar for us. We had 3 adults and 4 teenagers. They had the best time of their lives on this trip. We will never forget this experience and will talk about it for a long time. Thank you to Captain Crosby for doing this all these years.

We booked a 4 hour charter for 9 people for a cruise ship excursion. Booking went smooth. Elaine in the office was a pleasure to deal with and answered my many questions with patience. After some initial confusion we were met at the tender dock by the very nice lady who transported us to the marina. The captain and his assistant were also very nice. We found it very difficult to understand the captain due to his accent. The boat was a sailboat, so we went the same speed in the open ocean as we did in the no wake zone leaving the marina. It was a 45 minute trip to Stingray City. Stingray City was an amazing experience. They then took us to Coral Gardens. There were some fish and a couple more rays swimming around. It was enjoyable. There were other boats at both places. On the way back the Captain cut the engine and furled the sail, so we sailed back (so it was slow). This was so he could play his guitar and sing for us. They had water and soda served from two liter bottles into little dixie cups. The nice lady met us at the marina and transported us back to the tender dock. The primary reason for booking this was for Stingray City and snorkeling. Everything was OK, but the next time I will try another vendor. I should have picked up on the fact that the boat was a sailboat, so that is on me. I would have just preferred to have spent more time at the snorkel sites rather than "commuting". And, the impromptu concert interfered with the conversation with our friends.

We had a wonderful trip with Captain Crosby to play with the stingrays and snorkle. He is a true Caymanian treasure! His boat is not fancy, but he is a local waterman who is knowledgeble and entertaining. Instead of giving more money to the cruise ship industry consider supporting the local island economy and take a memorable trip with Captain Crosby. His rates are extremely reasonalbe and he takes small groups. The stingrays practically swim into his hands! Treat yourself to a true island experience- you won't be disappointed!

We had a confirmed booking. Then we stood at the Docks and he didn‘t show up. As we called him he told us, that our Party is to small and he won‘t come for us. Unbearable!

We visited the Cayman with another couple and had a great time! We decided to go to Stingray City and had a wonderful time with Captain Crosby. He tells amazing stories on the way. He is the original Stingray "whisperer" and he was very patient with us as we warmed up to the stingrays. After Stingray city we visited a snorkeling site. On the way back to shore he hoisted the sail, grabbed his guitar and began to play and sing. Many hotel groups will steer you to other Stingray city vendors. Captain Crosby is not on their lists as he is an independently owned provider. Seek Captain Crosby out for a great experience!
