Kristi,
We took a tour through a private company when we were in Grand Cayman for a few days and they took us out with divers and we were in fairly deep waters, it was great, but you need to be a fairly good swimmer. The other area people go to is a sandbar and you don't really need to swim, just stand in the water, much easier if you can't swim?? If you are going with smaller kids, the sandbar would be the one to do. Have fun and make sure to purchase an underwater camera before you leave home, saves you about half the money from buying it once cruising. Have a great time.

Thank you for your interest in Capt. Marvinís Watersports. Our half-day snorkeling trip leaves the dock at 10:00 AM and returns to the dock at 1:00 PM, and another leaves the dock at 2:00 PM and returns at 5:00 PM. The price for the half-day trip is US$35.00. This is a 3-stop trip, two for snorkeling and one for swimming with and feeding the stingrays at Stingray City.

Snorkeling gear is included in the half-day trip price. Your trip with Capt. Marvinís may be booked through this medium, by mail or fax, and reserved by credit card.

Another option for you is a combination land/sea tour, which includes the Turtle Farm, Hell (land) and Stingray City (sea). We can arrange this for you with a minimum of 6 people. This tour leaves at 8:30 AM and returns at 1:00 PM and includes transportation to and from the George Town dock, for a price of US$43.00/person.

If you have a group, we can arrange a private charter for you, including transportation to and from our boat. Please give us at least three daysí notice for a private charter.

I looked at the website but if you notice on my sailing that the hours at Cayman are from 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM and the tours all end at one. There is no way to end at one and still get on a little boat to take you bak to the cruise. Any Solutions???

Brittany,
Which cruise line will you be on? Our cruiseship (Carnival Jubilee) is in port from 7am-2pm, so hopefully we'll have a chance to get back to the boat.

The cockatoo.. it is a racing catamaran, there is only about 20 people on board whereas on the others they see how many people they can stuff on a double decker. The guides are great. We went last June. Hope you have a great time.
