Amazing Experience!
Jan 2020
My husband and I did this on our honeymoon. It was SUCH a cool experience. We went on a day when there were no cruises, so it was not as busy as some people have mentioned. I could gush about this forever! Would do it again in a heartbeat. Such a great experience and awesome tour guides! There was no option below to mark the fact that we went in Nov 2019. Pre-COVID!

best company for Stingrays & snorkling
Mar 2020
What a fun day, great crew that helped make our Stingray experience the best. they took lots of pictures, which do have an additional cost...but worth it to not have to worry about catching everything. Even the snorkeling stop, was loaded with tons of fish to see. Overall a great experience.

Grand Cayman must do excursion!
We had an awesome experience on our excursion! The boat was clean, they provided bottled water and punch and the snorkel equipment. Our crew for the day was Casey, Pops and Polo. They were wonderful. We had a great experience at Stingray City and everyone had ample time to spend with the Stingrays and have pics taken. Snorkeling at the Reef was awesome, Casey fed the eel and was able
to capture some amazing video/pic on our GoPro for us.

I can't say enough good things about our tour. While on our honeymoon, my husband and I did lots of activities many including marine life adventures. The difference between swimming with the dolphins and stingrays couldn't have been different. The swimming with dolphins excursion was fun enough, but definitely depressing. Those poor caged creatures don't have any choice in the matter and you can tell they are just following orders. Also, the constant photo ops so the people can sell you every picture at a huge markup even though you've already said no is ridiculous. Capt Marvin is different. They don't keep the stingrays captive and any stingray you see is there by their own choice. Yes, they feed them yummy squid to get them coming in droves, but they keep them coming by their kindness and respect to the magnificent creatures. You can tell the stingrays are happy and having fun with the people and the tour guides are clear on how to respectfully treat them. They speak highly of them and give them names and miss them when ones that have come for a long time stop showing up (again, because the stingrays are free to go where they want). I don't think I will ever swim with dolphins again, but I would go on this tour a hundred more times. We had a great time at each stop. They made it clear to us at starfish beach not to pick the starfish up above the water as that can hurt them, which is another good example of them respecting the ocean life. We got to see, touch, and interact with the creatures without forcing anything on them which, trust me, feels 100 times better than having a dolphin forced to pull you around when the trainer gives the signal. Also, you don't notice them even taking your picture and at the end you are given one opportunity to buy ALL your pictures on a flash drive for one fair price as opposed to the hard sell of per picture prices for staged photos the dolphin place made us take. I didn't buy anything from the dolphin encounter but I have all our pictures from the stingrays. Trust me, go here if you want to have a truly amazing time and not have a bad feeling in your stomach from participating in something that doesn't feel ethical.

Absolutely a tremendous experience!
The crew at Captain Marvin’s was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. These guys are a class act. I highly recommend you get the photo package. The photos are amazing (none attached for now) Although an extra 70$, it was well worth it.

We will be back to Cayman Islands and definitely back to Captain Marvin’s!

Great experience!
Loved this excursion! It was less than half the price compared to what my cruise ship was charging! The driver was funny and entertaining. The boat crew were knowledgeable and funny! Saw and touched many stingrays. Snorkelling was also fabulous! Highly recommend!

This was the highlight to our many stops and excursions on the island. Ocean was a little rough but still had a great time. Crew took the time to explain everything before we went out. We felt safe the whole trip. The stingrays are in water about waist deep. So no need to panic. Crew was incredible.

Exhilarating!
Feb 2020
Exhilarating and Terrifying at the same time!!! Seriously, getting in the water at first is a bit scary, but once you are in and surrounded by these beautiful creatures, the fear dissipates! We held several and they were so docile. the water is crystal clear and the bonus reef was amazing!

Great experience - I'd recommend it
Oct 2019
the stingray experience was great. There were many other tours/boats there at the same time so it was pretty crowded but we each had a chance to get some 1 on 1 time with a stingray and take some pictures. the office staff (two very nice Filipino ladies) were extremely helpful and friendly.
