Stingray City Snorkel

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by ZiGBiGDoG on January 31, 2005

With Capt. Bryan’s, you are transported from their office, close to everything, to the other side of the island, where you board a 50-foot catamaran sailboat. This well-equipped vessel offers the best of both worlds, with a large sundeck for working on your tan and a shaded area for those who prefer to keep cool. In the sundeck area you can sit on a see-through net, where you can watch the beautiful water of the Caribbean flow past. On the way to the sandbar you can spot starfish and other aquatic life.

Imagine standing in chest-deep water, sometimes shallower, with these beautiful creatures dancing in the crystal-blue water all around you. It is like the stingrays are flying through the water, gliding effortlessly. As you reach out to feel them, they brush right up next to you, so you can feel how soft and smooth they really are. Put on a mask and snorkel and get an up-close look at these genteel creatures of the sea. You are even given the chance to hold one of them, with no harm done whatsoever.

On the return trip, your captain will take you to one of three other locations, to some deeper water, to explore other kinds of sea life. One of the more popular spots is called The Aquarium (see photos). It is a reef structure full of Caribbean sea life. You have plenty of opportunities to take some wonderful photos, so don't forget your underwater cameras. As of recently, a professional underwater cameraman accompanies your group to film your reaction to the tow locations, and the videos are then edited and are available for purchase and shipped to your home address. Once all of your snorkeling is complete, the captain pulls the anchor and raises the sails for a wonderful cruise back to land. This is an experience that everyone should have when visiting the Cayman Islands!!!!
