Default What is the best Stingray city tour for the money?

I saw many on the Carnival web site that is offered through the ship.

There are never any prices listed. There are the times and durations of the excursion there.

Has anyone gone recently and what was the price and was it worth it?

If you register with carnival and log on, and provide an email address and booking number and all that good stuff, you can see the prices of the excursions for the cruise that you are booked for.

Ive never been to any of them so I can't help you with which one is best.

Let me know what you decide, I can't figure out which one to do either!

Hey Redwitch, My family and I have done the Stingray City tour 3 times. The last two times we booked with Captain Marvins. Contact them at www.captainmarvins.com . Both times we have used them they have been awesome. They use a smaller boat which means less people in your group and they will get you back to your ship with plenty of time to shop or get something to eat. You can't go wrong with this company. The check in office is one block from the pier.
Good luck, Scott

Scott:
Thank you for the information. In the past we have not booked any of out excursions from the ship. We would go out and look for someone who will take us where we want to go for the best price.
We may have the whole group going. That would be 30 people. This is not a done deal though, because we still have to have our final meeting in April.

My favorite operator is Nativeway. They have several options, but my favorite is the Ray's, Reef & Rum point excursion.

Default Tours

We are going on our first cruise in 39 days. I booked both of our excursions thru Carnival Cruise line. We are doing a Stingray City and Island Tour which includes :
On this excursion you will:
Travel the length of 7-Mile Beach and view the miles of white sandy beach and crystal clear blue waters.
Experience a guided tour of the Turtle Farm; one of only a few turtle conservation centers in the world, home for the smallest hatchling to some of the largest sea turtles in the world.
Be taken to what is known as Hell; an area of exposed rocks, locally termed the Town of Hell because of the lack of life truly portrays what most of us would perceive Hell to look like.
Relax on the boat ride out to Stingray City Sandbar where you can stand in the shallow waters, as you swim or snorkel, feed, pet and hold the friendly stingrays.
Be provided snorkel equipment and food for the stingrays at no extra cost.
Enjoy our complimentary drinks including rum punch and listen to great Caribbean music on your return.
This tour is 4.5 hrs and was only 65.00 thru Carnival.
Best of Luck!!

I did the tour "freckles" described. I have been to Grand Cayman before but my friend hadn't. If you are interested in the turtle farm and Hell, it is nice. If you prefer snorkeling, I would try going just to Stingray City and I hear there is still a good FREE snorkeling spot within easy walking distance from the tender port. I wish I could have gone snorkeling but we pretty much had to get in line back to the ship. Also, I have seen some people with masks and others without on various pictures. I would suggest taking a mask (no fins needed) so you can see them underwater.
