Default CAPTAIN MARVIN TOURS = GRAND CAYMAN

We are considering signing up with Captain Marvin for a snorkel/stingray city tour in July while we are in Grand Cayman.

We would appreciate any feedback you may have about this company.

Thanks

Great company! We did the tour with them in March, our guide captured a stingray as soon as we moored and there were people from other boats coming over to pet our stingray. Our guide just told them next time book with Captain Marvin. Very informative guides and they were very safety conscious. You will not go wrong booking with Captain Marvin.
Just one piece of advise book the late morning tour, then you will have plenty of time to tender in, look around town and after the tour you will have time to get back to the tender and then the ship.

One of if not the best tour operators in Caymen, IMO.

Does anyone know how long it would take us to tender in? We booked with Captain Marvin for the Sting Ray tour for the 8:30 time slot. Do I need to change this or will we make it down to his place by then?

8:30 could be a little tight, I would change. It will take you about 10 minutes to walk down to Captain Marvins from the dock. Remember the passengers that book tours with the cruise lines get off the ship first.

It all depends upon what time your ship is scheduled to arrive, and if your ship changes to Caymen time.
If your ship stays on "ships time" you should be ok, Caymen time is 1 hour behind ships time. If your ship adjusts to local time it could be a tight squeeze. (We like to book tours on Caymen around 10 am)
Call or e-mail Captin Marvin and ask. They know how to schedule their tours around the ships arrival times.

Our family used Captain Marvins in October. Could not have asked for more. They took extra time in the water for "petting" of the stingrays as 3 of my 5 children were petrified at first!! They know those animals inside and out! We also got to snorkel above a small shark and a very large eel while one of the crew swam underwater with them both! It was amazing. Would book with them without a second thought!
