"Stingray City" Grand Cayman Things to Do Tip by TravellerMel
Grand Cayman Things to Do: 172 reviews and 285 photos
Stingray City is a sandbar off the island of Grand Cayman, and a very popular tourist destination. As a cruise excursion, the small boat will take you to the perimeter of the sand bar, and allow you to climb down into the waist-deep water to snorkel. There will be at least a dozen boats in the area - you will congregate around your boat's captain (or his first mate), who will wrangle a stingray for you to touch, and hold if you like. A very unique experience indeed. In fact, if you snorkel around the other side of the boat, many stingrays will swim around you and under you, which is a little freaky, but I liked it. These rays are wild, but accustomed to human contact, so as long as you do not touch them on the spine or the tail, you will be fine.
Address: Several companies run this tour
Directions: Both times, I booked my trip on my cruise ship, so I cannot recommend one company over the other. They all seemed to be doing the same thing, so any of them should be fine.
