Make some lasting snorkeling memories at Stingray City Grand Cayman, a string of shallow sandbars frequented by friendly southern stingrays. The area became a meeting place for these creatures decades ago, when local fishermen began cleaning their fish in the shallow waters and supplied the rays with an abundant source of food. Today, the sandbars draw numerous tour boats, which allow divers to disembark and interact with stingrays in the chest-deep water. Most tour operators bring pails of squid meat, which you can distribute to the gathering rays by hand. Many tours also provide snorkeling gear--you don't need it to see the rays, but it comes in handy if you intend to explore deeper areas of Grand Cayman's North Sound.

Stingray City Grand Cayman Reviews
Have seen a lot of cool things in my travels, but easily this was one of the most memorable encounters I've ever had. These stingrays are like puppy dogs...they won't hurt you at all. A lot of fun..... more »
Pay half price if you go through Morritts! Yay we thought. Wrong. They take you out on an overcrowded old tub. Not on schedule, waited forever for it and then felt like we were rushed back. The... more »
Stingray City Grand Cayman is a must when on Island. Our family motored out to the stingray sand bar on a large catamaran. The team on the catamaran was very professional and accommodating. They served breakfast sandwiches and juice on the way out. While at Stingray city, everyone that wanted to hold or touch a Stingray definitely had ample opportunity. There was also some nice snorkeling on the tour. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the sail back, the beautiful weather and the free drinks. Definitely recommend Stingray City in Grand Cayman ! 😎
Our cruise ship got to the port an hour and a half late. They scheduled another boat for us so we didnt have to cancel. The tour was amazing. We first snorkeled at a reef for about 20 minutes. There were lots of fish to see. Then we went to sting ray city. The guides grabbed like a 5 ft stingray and let everyone in our group hold it and get their picture taken with it. It was a great time. Then after stingray city they take you to starfish point where there is starfish everywhere and you can hold them. Overall the trip was amazing. The guides made sure everyone was well taken care of. There was food and drinks available on the yacht. And best of all they made sure we were back before our cruise left port.
