We took the most wonderful tour today with Captain Marvin's. Stingrays, starfish, and Crystal Caves tour. Excellent, first-class, friendly service. Prompt, patient, kind staff for all segments of tour. Highly recommend this place!

Karen Rosner

This was a place that came highly recommended to us but we were very hesitant because it was not through our cruise ship. I am so happy that we went with it. We could not have been happier with our excursion and we will always recommend others to Capt Marvins!


We can't say enough good things about Captain Marvin's. My family booked a trip to Stingray City and two snokeling stops. The crew was WONDERFUL!! Stingray City was great and the snorkeling was incredible. I would recommend this company to everyone.

Tamie Law

Our visit to Stingray City with Captain Marvin's topped off an awesome trip to Grand Cayman. Swimming with the rays was one of my wife's "bucket list" items and Captain Marvin's crew helped make it a great memory.

Scott and Sandi Barfield

EXCELLENT trip. Couldn't have had a better experience. Super friendly staff, clean, well-maintained boat and bus transportation. We HIGHLY recommend Captain Marvin's! Can't wait to do it again!

Evan & Angie Perlman

This trip was wonderful. I cannot stress enough how professional and well run this entire operation is. The staff, the transportation and equipment is top notch all the way. The stingray city - snorkel stop tour was fabulous. I highly recommend this trip!

Steve and Teresa

We just returned from our cruise and the Stingray City and snorkel was the absolute highlight. In addition to how exciting it was to learn about the stingrays, hold, touch and try to catch them the staff was so incredibly gracious and helpful.

Tracy D

Just got back from our cruise & my favorite excursion was with Captain Marvin's! We chartered a private boat with 15 of us which took us to Stingray City & two other places to snorkel, which was a great time!

Kelly Z.

This is a MUST! If I have to elect one, only one, place to go before the death, cruising to Stingray City with Captain Marvin's, that would be for sure my option. The crew made all to make that experience unique.

Joyce Altmann

Came with my grandmother who's wanted to visit stingray city for like 20 years and my mom. All three of us loved the stingrays and feeding them. The staff was very friendly and helped us snorkel and see certain fish and also helped my grandmother. Thanks Captain!

Kaitlyn Roethlein

Best snorkeling trip ever. Captain and mate were great. Derrado the mate was in the water with us at all times. He handled the stingrays and taught us how to feed them. It was awesome. Tip--take the afternoon trip to avoid the cruise ship.

Ed Banks

We just returned from our cruise on The Dream. I had booked our stingray/snorkeling excursion in Grand Cayman with Captain Marvin's through Shoreexcursioneer. It was the most amazing excursion we had ever experienced. The crew were exceptional.

Lisa Hill

Thank you SO much, Keith, for an absolutely amazing day!! We took the beach lunch stingray snorkel tour and would do it again in a heartbeat! Keith and his crew were professional, knowledgeable, and very accommodating to our group. They made sure everyone enjoyed the tour!


We had an awesome time in Grand Cayman. Thank you Captain Marvin's! I have a son in a wheelchair and they went the extra mile to accommodate us!

Tim Ferrell

Our group of 17 booked a 2 stop stingray/snorkel excursion with Captain Marvin's on Februay 10, 2016 during our cruise on Carnival Breeze. The staff was in the office near the cruise terminals as indicated to take us on our adventure.


Captain Marvin's tours are the best! Our tour guide Dennis, made it awesome! Thank you!!!

Kathy and Jerry Fermanich

These guys are AWESOME. After arriving with our kids on a Disney cruise and finding that another tour company had no-showed, the folks at Captain Marvin's came to the rescue, even when they didn't have to do so. We were so impressed with this group.

Brice Coleman

Our group of 9 just got back from a cruise on the Carnival Glory. Our first stop was to the Grand Cayman. We booked the stingray/snorkeling tour through Shore Excursions. Captain Marvin's picked us up right near the port and took us to the boat.

Heather James

When our cruise ship was routed to Spotts Bay and we were stuck forever waiting for tender boats (apparently not that uncommon - second year in a row for us), you guys went WAY above and beyond to make sure we still had the ultimate experience.

Beth Holmes-Bozung

We visited the Caymen Islands back in Oct. 2015. We booked this excursion through recommendation of Costco Wholesale. Polo and his crew went above and beyond our expectations. It was a wonderful experience and I have been recommending it to anyone. I love Captain Marvins!

Cassandra and Matthew Pieterick

There were four of us on the three stop trip. Had an awesome time and would definitely recommend Capt Marvin's to anyone. We will be going back!!!

Scott Meyers

I never write reviews, but captain Marvin's outfit was SO SPECTACULAR, that i had to put in 4 words of advice...ALWAYS BOOK TOURS HERE!!! esp. if you want to be pampered, catered to, fed a fab buffet at kaibo w/ epic views, learn about, swim with, feed.

Marvin (not capt!) & Leila Haydel

We would highly recommend Captain Marvins. A very professional organization. From the moment we stepped into their office, they took care of us. The shuttle to the boat was clean and efficient and on time. The boat was incredibly clean and we are

Martin Vanderwood

Had a fantastic tour of Grand Cayman with Captain Marvin's. My daughters loved the turtle farm and our tour guide Brad told us lots of interesting facts about the island, he was very funny and knowledgeable and he was great with my girls answering all of their questions.

My daughter and I had a great fishing charter with Stephen and Brandon. From our on time pick up at our condo to great service and fun on the water, it was wonderful day. Fresh tuna for dinner from our catch topped it off. Keep up the great job!!

Joel Gardiner

Just a shout out to thank you for the most wonderful tour. We stopped in from our cruise ship and did a 2 stop snorkel/stingray stop. I can't say enough how wonderful this was! And, no worries about missing the ship! Thank you and we will absolutely return

Chris & Jeff

We had the best time on our Stingray City tour. From Anna who booked our trip to the staff on the boat. Everyone was super friendly and made our trip so memorable. My 9 year old son raved about Glen! He was extremely helpful when Tyler went snorkeling.


Just had a fabulous day on the beach lunch tour. Our second year snorkelling with Captain Marvins and today exceeded our expectations from last year. All the crew were professional and knowledgeable but Carlos is amazing. He never left our sight- questions.

Patricia Arney

The Carnival Liberty was re-routed to Grand Cayman and Cozumel last week and I was trying to find something to do last minute and quickly. We were very pleased with our excursion and would highly recommend Captain Marvin's!

Jennifer Fey

We did the stingray/snorkeling trip on 10/17 and the Hell/Turtle Farm tour on 10/18 and both were excellent! Both trips were well worth the money. Our Captain was great! Dennis..our guide on the turtle farm tour was awesome! I would highly recommend Captain Marvins.

Heather P

Captain Marvin's is the BEST. Did the 3 stop Stingray/Snorkel on 9/23/14. The Crew was AWESOME. Helped everyone in the water, took amazing pictures and put on a FABULOUS tour. Joseph was our Captain for the day and he was Great!!!


Excellent tour - Expectations were high, but they were effortlessly exceeded!! We did the 2-stop Stingray City & Coral Gardens snorkelling trip. My daughter's fear of fish has been completely cured. Your team did a great job, thank you all

The Marsden Family

Five star tour, a solid 10 of 10 in all respects. We did the stingray tour on 9/8/2014. The three gentlemen who looked after us were 110% on the ball. Mary Jane was afraid to get in the water but her fear was overcome by the "mate" assisting her.

Mary Jane and Buster Cage

My sister and I were so delighted with your tour! The people on the boat went above all expectations as my sister could not swim. She was scared but they helped her through it all. She had an amazing time! Thank you.


We chose to book our Cayman Island excursion here online opposed to booking it through our cruise. We were beyond delighted. Captain Marvin can be very proud of his family that have carried on his tradition.

Kim & Billy

My wife and I went on your stingray city trip and really enjoy it the crew that took us there were great the boat was name oh boy I gave this a thumbs up

Thomas and Carrie Black

My 11 year old son and I absolutely loved the stingray city with 2 snorkel stop tour. It was fantastic! The stingray experience alone was worth the price, but the barrier reef snorkeling was some of the prettiest coral/fish I've seen and the coral gardens.


Captain Eric and his crew were very kid friendly and on time. When Captain Eric discovered I could not swim he volunteered to pull me around so that I could experience the snorkeling. He also found a swim mask that I could see from without my glasses.


Thank you Vernon and crew for an amazing adventure. This was my first time to Grand Cayman, and the first cruise for my two teenage sons. We had a blast interacting with the Stingray and the photos from the day were wonderful. Vernon shared their history


Just returned from a cruise to Grand Cayman. Had a wonderful time swimming with the stingrays and snorkeling with the Captain Marvin crew. Will definitely go back again

James McNeal

Thank you Vernon and crew for making us feel so welcome! Vernon's detailed explanations answered all my questions about what we would see--normally not an easy task. Thank you!!

Jai Piare

Just booked our fall trip to Grand Cayman. This will be our 10th time there & Captain Marvins will be part of our vaca once again! Best part of going to GC is to take the full day tour with you all! Looking forward to a great trip!

Susan & Craig

Thanks to Eric, Froggy and the crew for making our day trip to the Caymans extra special. The service and experience was 2nd to none.


Great trip! Wonderful tour guides, they went out of their way to accommodate all guests! Highly recommended, would book with Captain Marvin's again! Thank you for a great trip!!!


Thank you to Captain Vernon and mates Jason and Jordan for making our snorkeling with the rays, over the reef, and fish feeding a wonderful day. You guys ROCK! Seeing the beautiful starfish up close and seeing all the iguanas - amazing. Wish you much success.

Debby Elder

We were with you on Thursday 9th January on the Captain Jimmy. After going to Cozumel after I can say you were the best trip ever and we will cherish our memories of touring with you. Thank you so much

Lisa Perkins

My friend booked the Captain Marvin "Stingray Swim and 2 Snorkeling stop" tour through Expedia for when we docked in CI during our December, 2013 Carnival Cruise. I had heard how exciting the stingray swim was from my Sister, years ago.

Doris Bolyard

We had a wonderful time , we booked fishing one day and stingray city the next! Small mix up on the fishing trip but it was worth it . The next day the owner was at the shop to correct the mistake and he did !!!!! We were on a small boat to stingray city

Jack Schanck

I had the time of my life! I am a non-swimmer and is usually terrified of the water, but somehow, because of the AWESOME crew aboard Capt. Jimmy, I conquered my fear and even went snorkeling!!! Thank you Froggy, Vernon, and most especially to Capt. Delroy


To Capt. Marvin's: THANK YOU! We had a FABULOUS time and can only thoroughly recommend your 3 Stop Tour out to Stingray City, the Barrier Reef and the Coral Gardens. Your crew were very friendly and professional and ensured that everyone on board are safe.

Amanda and Murray

I made a reservation on their website which required a credit card to hold the reservation. They won't charge your card until you arrive. George Town, Grand Cayman was one of our ports of call on a cruise. It was a very simple check-in.


I took a 6 day cruise with two other friends. My friend Sharmin booked Captain Marvin Stingray City. We had a BLAST!! The staff was so AMAZING!! I explained I didn't know how to swim. They made me feel very comfortable and made sure I had FUN.

Brenis Speraw

We arrived a day late to the island thanks to United Airlines in Houston. We had to reschedule our excursion and Ruth was the nicest person to deal with over email to try to reschedule. Once on the island, I spoke to Ronnie to ensure they could accommodate us.

Sandra Coleman

AWESOME is all we can say. Denward, Brandon and other young gentleman- forgot your name, you were so wonderful to us on June 20th -3 stop trip. Thank you so much for your service and knowledge. Can't wait to come back.

The Alred Family

I told my wife one of the first things to do when we get back is to write a comment about our experience with Captain Marvin's Stingray trip. We did not book through the ship, this saved us a lot of money.

George H.

We heard about the Captain Marvin excursions from a friend. We were getting ready for our 7 day cruise and getting everything set up. I called and set up the 2 stop stingray city and snorkeling. We got to Grand Cayman and the office was right by the port.

Rebecca Miller

It was our 50th Anniversary and I chose Capt. Marvin's from the internet. The office was only 1/2 block from where the cruise ship tendered. The young lady receptionist was very nice and professional. We chose the 2-stop tour--Stingray City and some great tours.

Dwight d Wood

Stay on CI for a week, do your research and discover Capt. Marvin's. We've experienced similar snorkeling adventures at other places in the Caribbean and GOM; these guys by far delivered the best deal and most memorable snorkeling adventure.

McMullen & Fancher Family Group

We just did the snorkeling, stingray excursion on the Captain Jimmy boat on Thursday and we had an awesome time. There were 13 of us that went together and it was well worth it. The crew was outstanding and took excellent care of us.

Becky Barnett

Our group of 6 booked with Captain Marvin in July 2012. We had 3 stops, one at Stingray City and two stops to snorkle. Our crew went above and beyond to make sure everyone in our group was able to participate and had a good time. I would definitely recommend Captain Marvins.


Had a great time

Derrick Moore

Our guides, Mikey, Jumo (Joe) and Peter took us out for 4 hours of North Sound fishing for bone fish, snorkeling the reef, stingrays at the sand bar and then dropped us off at Kaibo for a delicious Caribbean buffet! Tuesdays are the best day! Thanks guys

Loraine & Greg Harrison

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed this tour and we cannot say enough good things about this company. Denver and Peter were exceptional guides and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked on the dock. So many nice touches -- like getting the saltwater

Dave Bryson

We booked our Stingray City & Coral Gardens snorkel tour after a friend recommended you, and we are so glad we did! From start to finish, everyone we dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun!


We stopped in the Grand Cayman and was able to go on a 3 stop tour with Captain Marvins, one of the best things I did while booking my cruise with carnival.I booked the tour myself and it was a lot cheaper this way, thanks Captain Marvins.

Rev. Jeff Davis

We had a great time on the 2 stop cruise. Stingrays, snorkeling coral and enjoying the beautiful Caribbean Sea. I would make this my first stop on a repeat visit to Grand Cayman.


Just wanted to pass along what a great time we had on the tour. Everybody from top to bottom was professional and a pleasure to travel with. Even met your daughter!

Frontline Dogs

So much fun!! What an experience. Thanks goes out to Joe and Froggy and the whole crew for making this such a great adventure for us. We definitely plan on returning. Thanks again!!

Levi and Rachel

Dear Joan, We had a great trip. Capt. Denward was super as always and the Jamaican bus driver also did a great job. Thanks,

George Crawford

We went reef snorkeling and then to Stingray City with Froggy, James, and another associate of Captain Marvin's Watersports on Grand Cayman earlier this month. We were so pleased with the helpful, friendly demeanor of everyone. We have recommended Capt. M

Kathleen & Scott McNeliska

Myself and Melissa would like to thank you for an absolutely wonderful experience on Sept 20th. Stingray City was the highlight of our stop in the Cayman and your boat and crew were top notch. I will most definitely sail with Captain Marvin again!!!

Jim Dishman

Hi I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time on our trip out to Stingray city. It was great fun and the guys on the boat were nice and helpful. It was one of our most fun activities; we had a great trip to Grand Cayman. Your island is beautiful!

Kay Houghtaling

Ruth, Just wanted to pass along what a great time we had on the tour. Everybody from top to bottom was professional and a pleasure to travel with. Even met your daughter! If there is any website you want to send me a link to I would be more than happy to know.

Andrew Hotchkies

I just wanted to pass along a thank you for the fantastic time my girlfriends and I had on the stingray city tour with our guides Glen and Peter. It was the most fun we had while in the Caymans. If at all possible, please pass this message along to them!!
