Default Captain Marvin- Grand Cayman

Hi! We have done snorkeling and Stingray City with him before and would love to do it again.. I visited his website and see that he has various pick up spots but it doesnt' appear that he picks up right from the port (we had flown right into Grand Cayman in the past). I know some of you have booked through him privately as well- where will he pick you up? Thanks!

Capt. Marvins is just a short walk from where the tenders drop you off, its very short and very easy, they give you directions when you book with them...........RICH

I just booked my trip with him as well, actually I booked all my shore excursions through ****URL Deleted****, they were fast and courteous, and a lot less than the cruise ship tours ( less crowded as well)

All of the private operators will pick you up at the tender pier. Those that book through the ship will tender in first and be escorted to the shuttle buses. I might add that we have done two ship tours and one private tour and all of them had about 20 people on the boat. In addition the ships tours had refreshments that came from the ship and the equipment was properly cleaned and in good condition. The private tour was with equipment that needed repair and the 'refreshments' were homemade kooaid in empty milk jugs with what looked like used plastic cups! We did not partake. The private tour was not with Capt. Marvin, but one of the other "Capt's" at the pier, so I cannot say how his tour is operated. Always beware.
24 cruises and counting!

We went on Captain Bryan's Buccaneer and had a great time. They do NOT pick you up at the pier, you have to go to the left a few blocks.
