Starfish and Stingray City Adventure with Snorkeling

Highlights

  • Swim with rays, snorkel reefs, and see starfish in one hassle-free trip

  • Instructions and all required equipment provided to ensure your safety

  • Refreshments, and cruise port and select hotel transfers included for ease

Summary

Your boat tour takes you to three locations around Grand Cayman, the highlight of which is Stingray City, a section of water (no more than 5 feet / 1.5 meters deep) and sandbars home to a population of southern stingrays.  When you arrive, learn about the proper behavior when you're in the water from the boat crew, and then hop in with a provided snorkel and mask to swim near the stingrays. Next, head to the Coral Garden, a nearby location when you can swim among some of the Cayman Islands' most colorful reefs.  Your third stop is snorkeling with starfish, where you can relax in shallow water and look at different species of starfish. This is an especially popular activity for young kids.  Your tour ends with return to the starting point.
