Make some lasting snorkeling memories at Stingray City, a string of shallow sandbars frequented by friendly southern stingrays. The area became a meeting place for these creatures decades ago, when local fishermen began cleaning their fish in the shallow waters and supplied the rays with an abundant source of food. Today, the sandbars draw numerous tour boats, which allow divers to disembark and interact with stingrays in the chest-deep water. Most tour operators bring pails of squid meat, which you can distribute to the gathering rays by hand. Many tours also provide snorkeling gear--you don't need it to see the rays, but it comes in handy if you intend to explore deeper areas of Grand Cayman's North Sound. Put Stingray City and other West Bay attractions into our West Bay vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • This is a beautiful place to visit! We booked with Moby Dick Tours for our family of 3 and it was great! 
  • Absolutely loved this place! Clean and clear water, amazing view! Our tour guide was pretty cool! Recommend to go visit! Was able to take my own pictures with the stingrays!
  • An amazing experience, if a little intense for younger visitors. Very crowded with both people and stingrays, but well worth it. Guides were all helpful and informative, and something I'll never forget.
  • One of the most AMAZING experiences we have ever had! You must go! The sting rays are gentle and the water is beautiful! You leave in the morning and it takes most of the day. Our package deal included a stop for snorkeling. Absolutely, incredible!
  • Definitely gotta do it when in the Caymans. My girlfriend was apprehensive to start with, then we realised they are big, beautiful, flappy pancakes. Highlight of our trip.
  • Very very pretty area, with 4-ft deep water and HUNDREDS of people there to see the Stingrays. It seems over-populated with people, but you cannot blame them for wanting to see Stingrays in their own habitat. The water is comfortable and shallow enough for most adults. Younger children will want to have life jackets.
