We just got back from Grand Cayman on the Inspiration, and did the Nativeways stingray trip following info from this list. It was an amazing, if strange, experience. One thing we got that other groups didn't: one of the crew held up the stingrays, and taught you how to hold them.They also had an underwater video camera and videographer, so you could get a video ( but no pressure).The cost was $25, and it was collected on the boat.
My husband did the Sotos tour in November and he loved it. It was only $19 for three hours and three stops. The guides lured out an eel for the guests to see, and a nurse shark. Then at Sting Ray City the guests were able to hold and feed the rays. He met the guide right across the street from the tender docks. He said he would highly recommend them.
Did you just do the Nativeway, because theier site says $30. We went on them in the fall and they were $25, but they didn't have a video camera. I was checking out Soto's also, their site said $24. What is the 3rd place that Soto's does that Native way doesn't that they list as the barrier reef. Was it any good. Thanks
We're looking at either Captain Bryans Catamaran for $34 per person, its a little more but you are on a 50ft Catamaran and I love to sail. or the other Catamaran is the Buccaneer that we found through this board.
The Buccaneer is the only one I can find with an onboard bar!!! I don't know if its an actual booze cruise but I definitely want to have a couple. It goes to Stingray City, Aquarium and Coral Gardens. I hope they are good snorkeling places.
Are there any other boats that serve "adult beverages" so I can compare them? The Buccaneer is $39.
We booked with Snorkler's Dream and found it was wonderful. We had 3 stops including stingray city sandbar. They also take you to the coral gardens and to the reef. Only 34.00 per person and the 47 ft catamaran is rarely crowded. There were only ten of us. And you serenaded by Captain Crosby on the sail back.
