ShoreTrips says...

This 2-hour snorkel trip is specifically designed for cruise passengers whose ships arrive a little later in the day or for those just looking for Grand Cayman's snorkel highlights.

No visit to Grand Cayman is complete without a visit to the famous Stingray City sandbar to interact with the friendly stingrays. Fortunately for you, this trip is provided by the company who "discovered" Stingray City. Perhaps the original owner will even be on board during your tour. Although he is now retired, he still loves to get on the boat, interact with the guests, and relate stories of what life was like in Cayman's earlier days.

You'll board a cabin cruiser for this two-hour trip, which includes a stop at the Stingray City sandbar for interacting with the stingrays in waist-deep water. You can enjoy having the stingrays swim around you or you can snorkel and get a little more up close and personal. Food for the stingrays is provided so you can experience the feeling of them grabbing the goodies with their mouths on the underside of their body as they swim over your hand.

The second stop is the incredible Barrier Reef, where you may see nurse sharks and moray eels or the gorgeous Coral Gardens, known for thousands of colorful fish. Your guide will determine the location based on the day's water conditions. You'll have approximately 30 minutes of snorkel time at each stop. Your captain will determine the order of the snorkel stops.

Ice water and fruit punch are provided on the boat.

Afterward, stop at my favorite chocolate shop, Icoa Chocolate, to pick up a couple of pieces of passion fruit truffle.

  • This tour includes:
  • 2-hour snorkel adventure on a cabin cruiser
