  • Catamaran excursion
  • Snorkeling
  • Encounter with giant rays at Stingray City


What we will do
  • We set off for an interesting snorkeling expedition in the calm crystal clear waters of the island of Grand Cayman at Stingray City. After a short transfer to the Island Yacht Club we board Allura, a spacious and comfortable catamaran.
  • Sailing the beautiful waters of North Sound we finally reach Stingray City. Here we can finally interact with the rays and, with a bit of luck, we might even manage to have them eating out of our hands! Rays came to this area a few decades ago when a fisherman had made a habit out of cleaning fish on the shallow sand bank. Overcoming their innate shyness, the rays began to approach the shallow sand bank to feast on the leftovers.
  • We will be provided with the necessary snorkeling equipment (mask and snorkel) so that we can observe these fascinating creatures and swim right next to them. *We can film these magnificent marine creatures that swim happily around us, in water that is less than one metre deep.
  • This is a unique experience that we can only enjoy here in the Cayman Islands!
