    OVERVIEW

    Interact with southern stingrays on a shallow sandbar and observe an abundance of other marine life by snorkeling a barrier reef off Grand Cayman. A scenic cruise along beautiful Seven Mile Beach will bring you to Stingray City, a collection of sandbars teeming with stingrays. These graceful creatures may look somewhat ominous, but they are docile and shy, often burying most of their flat bodies in the sand. While swimming with the stingrays, you might feed them, run your hands over their sandpaper-like skin or simply allow them to brush by. The stingrays that inhabit this particular sandbar are quite friendly and accustomed to sharing the water with people. After cruising to a nearby reef, you will see many of the other marine creatures that live in the crystal-clear waters. Among the most colorful are queen parrotfish, red-and-white striped squirrelfish and silvery yellow French grunts, whose name refers to the noise they make by grinding their teeth.

    • Visit a series of shallow sandbars with so many stingrays that it’s called Stingray City.
    • Feed and touch the stingrays or simply watch them from a distance.
    • Snorkel a barrier reef and observe the other marine life that lives off Grand Cayman.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing with a swimsuit underneath.

    OVERVIEW

    Cruise the Allura catamaran to Stingray City, a collection of shallow sandbars teeming with southern stingrays that are used to humans petting them. On the way there, the crew will brief you on how best to maximize the experience. Once you reach the sandbars, you will be free to interact with these graceful, docile creatures according to your comfort level. You may feed them, stroke their sandpaper-like skin or simply watch the stingrays glide along by flapping their sides like wings. The choice is yours. Although some people are apprehensive about being in the water with stingrays, these creatures are actually quite shy. Many of the same ones frequent the crystal-clear waters at Stingray City and have even been named after famous “Rays,” such as Ray Charles. Southern stingrays are fascinating creatures with flat, diamond-shaped bodies. They use electro-receptors and their heightened sense of smell to locate prey buried in the ocean floor.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a series of shallow sandbars with so many stingrays that it’s called Stingray City.
    • Discover some of the reasons these bashful creatures are so misunderstood.
    • Feed and touch the stingrays or simply observe them from a distance.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing with a bathing suit underneath.
    • Bring a towel and sunscreen.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    OVERVIEW

    Observe schools of brightly colored fish and other marine life while snorkeling a barrier reef and a shipwreck that serves as an artificial reef. The reefs off Grand Cayman are teeming with sea life, and you will likely see an abundance of creatures that may include stingrays and sea turtles, especially loggerhead and green turtles as their numbers have dramatically increased in the last two decades. Tropical fish are also plentiful and many of them are easy to identify because of their distinct colors. You might see brilliant blue tangs, neon-colored parrotfish and Spanish hogfish, a species whose colors change as they age. If you spot purple-and-yellow ones, they are juveniles. The shipwreck also attracts huge numbers of fish as it has provided them with a sheltered habitat for decades. Because it lies on the ocean floor just 25 feet below the surface, it offers an excellent, easy-to-reach snorkeling site.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • See an abundance of neon-colored fish and other marine life while snorkeling a reef.
    • Snorkel around a shipwreck that now serves as an artificial reef teeming with fish.
    • Look for loggerhead and green sea turtles, whose numbers have increased recently.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing with a swimsuit underneath.
    • Bring a towel and sunscreen.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    OVERVIEW

    Snorkel around a coral reef and a U.S. Navy submarine that was scuttled to become an artificial reef after more than 50 years of military service. The USS Kittiwake lies on the bottom of the sea off the coast of Seven Mile Beach, making it easily accessible for snorkeling. Although the water there is about 60 feet deep, the submarine’s top deck is only four feet from the surface. You can just snorkel around the top deck or go deeper if you wish. Regardless, you will see an abundance of marine life that typically includes sea turtles, groupers and all sorts of brightly colored tropical fish. The coral reef lies nearby but in much shallower water, which allows you to get an even closer view of the underwater wonders. The more frequently seen fish include yellow snappers, blue tangs and red soldierfish. You may also catch sight of southern stingrays gracefully swimming by.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Snorkel the crystal-clear waters around a scuttled submarine that is now an artificial reef.
    • Observe abundant brightly colored fish such as blue tangs, parrotfish and red soldierfish.
    • Enjoy an even closer look at the marine life at the reef, which lies in shallower water.
