Default Cozumel & Ochos Rios for 3 & 4 year old

We are trying to select the best shore excursions for an upcoming Caribbean Princess cruise that will be fun for our 3 and 4 year old children - who love the idea of swimming with the beautiful fish. We will be at Cozumel, Ochos Rios and Grand Cayman. Thanks for any advice!

Grand Caymen - definately do a tour to Sting Ray City & Sandbar - book it on your own, no need to book a ships tour. You and your kids will love interacting with the rays, you can pet and even feed them.
Cozumel - spend the day at Channunkaab National Park - nice beach with good snorkeling, clean facilities, if you want to do a dolphin swim, do it here. Book in advance on your own. No need for a ships tour to Channunkaab. The park also has an aquarium, a small replica of the Mayan Ruins, the sea lions are amazing. If you just want a fun day at the beach there are lots to choose from. Playa del Sol, Paradise, Mr. Sancho's are all great.
I think that your kids are probably too young for the ruins.
Ocho Rios - book a tour with Peat Taylor - he is very good and will take you places that you and your kids will love.

Thanks for the suggestions! Channunkaab sounds like it has alot going on that they would like to do. I will look at the age cut offs for the Sting Ray City tours without the ship (I think the minimum age with the ship was 8 years old) because our almost 5 year-old would go crazy over them. He is still talking about petting one that we saw at the aquarium 2 months ago.

Try Soto's Cruises, Captain Marvin's or Nativeways for the Stingray tour. We went on Soto's and there were two little ones on our trip. They looked to be about 3 or 4. The only condition was they had to wear a life jacket the entire trip.
