If you google “Stingray City Cayman” you will find hundreds of videos showing the spot and what it’s like, plus dozens of excursion operators.  Easiest is to just book with your cruise line, they’ll definitely have an option, but you’ll get a more personal experience with most of the private operators.  A quick look through this forum with turn up lots of reviews as well.

We’ve been to grand cayman a lot. On our past trip, we decided to try stingray city. You take a bus to the dock and then catch a boat to the sandbar. At the sandbar, the water is about 4 feet or so deep depending on the tide. They have life jackets if you want to use one. Everyone gets into the water (or you can stay on the boat and watch) and the stingrays start swimming around you. The crew will have squid that you can feed to the stingrays. You hold your hand flat and they come by and suck it off your hand. The crew will show you how to hold the stingray and take photos of you with the stingrays. Some of the stingrays are huge and it’s really fun to be in the water with them. On the way back, our boat had a snorkel stop. They provided snorkeling equipment. The reef was nothing special, but it was still fun swimming around. We plan to do it again the next time we visit grand cayman. The sandbar is a great place to be on a hot day.

I agree with Stingray City. That's what GC is known for. We've done it 3 times...once back in 2012, 2013 and we were just vacationing (by land) in GC 3 months ago and did it again. Had a great time! This years trip: HERE


You'll find plenty of pictures clicking the links that are underlined. 


If you have never swam with them, it's a great experience and there will be A LOT of them. They also let you hold them and give them a kiss for 7 years good luck. 🙂
