Note: The smaller charter boats like Capt Crosby’s will have far less people on them than the ones that are likely being offered on the cruise ships. And with the smaller local operators you get more attention and a personal /authentic Caymanian experience.

This fee includes - snorkeling equipment, flotation vests (including child sizes) refreshments - fruit juice, water and food for the stingrays/other fish at the snorkeling site.

Note: If your ship is a late arrival the Private Charter Category options might work best for you.

Option 1: Your Tour: You will board one of Captain Crosby's boats at the Grand Cayman Island Yacht Club – Dock C – Slip 29. Both of the boats are equipped with a marine toilet and changing area. You will take a relaxing boat ride to Stingray City Sandbar, which is home to the world renowned Cayman stingray who love to see you coming - as they know you are bringing lunch, so be sure you will get a warm welcome from them*!(And if the sandbar is busy he will take you snorkeling first, then back to the sandbar to enjoy the stingrays in comfort).

Captain Crosby will brief you on how to approach the stingray, feed them, pet them - you will find this to be a very special experience. If you are a little nervous don't worry as Captain Crosby is excellent at helping you get over any nervousness you might have - this is a new experience for most so it is natural for there to be some initial hesitation involved. You may even want to take photographs to show your friends at home that you have swam with the stingrays at Stingray City Grand Cayman - how cool is that!

For the best Grand Cayman Island snorkeling, Captain Crosby then takes you to one of his great snorkeling sites to see and swim with all the other colourful marine inhabitants - whether you are a new or experienced snorkeler you will love this. You will see conchs, starfish, angel fish, soft sponges, sea fans, wonderful shoals of fish, amazing coral arrangements up close and personal; it is like swimming in an aquarium - for some almost a magical experience. When you are done enjoy his unique fresh water shower when you board the boat.

True Caymanian Entertainment: You will then have a wonderful sail back to the dock, serenaded by Captain Crosby on guitar, an experience no other boat tour offers. He also has many mathematical puzzles and tricks, to keep the children entertained too! You will then return to your terminal or you can be dropped at the beautiful Seven Mile Beach where you can buy lunch if you wish and relax before heading back to your boat. Taxis/shuttle buses back from there are frequent and cost only $4 per person and take only 10 minutes.

Bookings for all trips can be confirmed via email or over the phone. Your credit card details are required to confirm bookings – however you pay in full in cash or travelers cheques on the day.
