Default Grand Cayman excursion?

Hi!
I am wondering if anyone had any updated info on the excursion in GC.
Particularly, stingray city (any rays left)? or any of the reefs.
Clients are interested in booking an excursion outside from the cruise ship.

I appreciate any info you may have. Thank you Marcy

The answer would be best gained by contacting Capt Bryan or Native way or one of the other local captains and hearing conditions directly from them.

Also contact capt Marvin. We have already booked again with them for the full day excursion. They have told us that the rays will be there and the reefs are fine. The island was hit hard, but the cruise port had almost no damage and the tours will be up and running. We toured with them in 2002 and it was the highlight of our trip that year. Ask to be on the Miss Jackie with Capt. MArvin himself and deck hand Eric. They went out of their way to make it a great experience for all of us.

The Government announced on Thursday that cruise ships will resume visits to Grand Cayman beginning on Monday, 1 November, 2004. A maximum of two cruise ships will be permitted in port during the first two weeks of November. The first two weeks will be closely monitored and, upon a satisfactory assessment of the situation and facilities, additional ships will be added as deemed appropriate... read more...

Grand Cayman opened to ships November 1st. We were there November 2nd. I wish that we could have seen the island before Ivan. They are rebuilding, but it is easy to see the devistation from the hurricaine.
We did the snorkel/stingray excursion with Captain Marvin. I highly recommend them. The fish are still there, and there are plenty of VERY friendly rays at Stingray City! We had a great time.
