I asked in an earlier post about Pete Taylor and now have the same questions about Native Way in Grand Cayman (Sting Ray City/ Coral Gardens tour).
Do you pay with a credit card?
Do they charge it immediately, or will they wait till my cruise in April 2006?
What if the ship skips that port?
How safe is it to have your credit card # floating around a year before your actual vacation?
Can you just pay cash the day of your excursion and still pre-book ahead of time?
What is your experiance with this company? Good or Bad?
We visited Sting Ray City in GC with Native Way just last April. Great company. Wonderful shore excursion.
We paid them cash at time of tour. However, we printed our confirmation they emailed us and brought it with us. Glad we did as they tried to charge us a little more than what we were quoted. They honored our email rate.
Also, ship was unable to dock at Georgetown. We were worried as we booked this on our own. Our ship docked at Spot Bay and we had to tender in to land. There was someone waiting from Native Way there for us (almost 2 hours later than planned). Due to the delay, we were a little rushed at the end.
However, the tour thru the ship ran into boat troubles and we made it back in time.
Enjoy and let us know if there is anything else we can help you with on Native Way.
Would you have missed the ship if the ships tour had not run into trouble?
You said that you paid cash and tip at time of excursion, but did you have to give a credit card number in order to book this excursion that they would have charged that day if you hadnt paid cash? Or were you just worried that due to the ships docking place and late arrival that they gave up on finding you and you would miss out on this excursion?
Went with Nativeway last year and absolutely had a great time. I booked the trip thru their website and then paid cash when we got to the dock. The guides were great and very informative. They made sure everyone on the boat got to interact with the stingrays.
Cant wait to go again.
