Cruisin ~ did they say anything to you about not wearing sunscreen? I've seen conflicting reports about whether you can or should wear sunscreen while swimming with the stingrays.

They seem to take forever to answer me, if they answer me at all about GC and the stingray tour. Is there another tour group that may be alittle better then them in response time and quality of tour ?? I sent them a message thursday and re sent it today trying to confirm reservations and NOTHING. Really dont want to book with someone that makes you put a deposit down though incase something odd happens and we don't make it to port ----- 69 days to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hi - I emailed MobyDicks on Sunday and they replied today with all the info. However, I had gotten a reply first from Nativeway. Sharon from Nativeway answered my emails same day (twice). I think I will be booking with them. My cruise leaves on 3/26 and will be in GC on 3/29 and they still have bookings available.
26 more days to go for me ... YAHOO! Take care, Cathy
As for sunscreen, some tours involving marine life will ask that you wear only natural, biodegradable sunblock. A few places actually require it. Typical, chemical sunscreen comes off in the water and leaves a film on the surface, which is obviously an environmental issue and dangerous to marine life. I think I read where it inhibits oxygen in the water.
We were just with them in Grand Cayman on 6/6/07 and they were great! Mark and Zak were on board with us and explained everything we would do very well. They were in the water with us and were so gentle with the stingrays, carefully holding them in the water for us to pet and kiss. They were alot of fun. My only semi-negative comment would be that the bus that they boarded us on to and from was old. It had an ac unit at the back blowing forward, but it was still quite warm in there. But even with that I would use Moby Dick tours again in a heartbeat!
