 Rum Point Beach Adventure & Stingray City Snorkel   [G14]

Rating: 7

Add a visit with the stingrays to the Rum Point beach excursion (see page 323) for $30–$32 more. After playing at the beach, you’ll board a glass bottom boat and cruise out to Stingray City to snorkel before returning to the beach. Cruiser reviews were mixed but very similar to those for Rum Point Beach Adventure and Stingray City tours—basically the big winner is the stingrays. Typical meeting time is 8:20 am. Not available on Disney Fantasy visits.

Rating: 9

 This two-site snorkel tour in the crystal-clear waters of George Town Harbor takes you to the wreck of the schooner “Cali” and a nearby reef. Snorkel gear, water and lemonade are provided. Cruiser reviews are very positive: This “great” excursion is “good for beginners.” Cruisers report snorkeling “within sight of the Disney ship,” where they explored the “way cool” “shipwreck” which rests in about “15 to 20 feet of water.” Then move about a “quarter mile” down to snorkel among “protected reefs” and see “awesome” sea “critters.” Overall, cruisers “loved” this “fun excursion.

This sail and snorkel adventure takes you north of George Town Harbor to Seven Mile Beach. There, you'll board a catamaran and head to the USS Kittiwake, sunk in 2010 to make an artificial reef. You'll spend 45 minutes there and another 45 minutes at a nearby shallow reef. Snorkel gear, water and lemonade are included, and there's an optional cash bar.

 Grand Cayman Island Tour   [G17, G42]

Rating: 7

Your bus tours the streets of George Town, past the Gingerbread House, on through Hell, and to the Cayman Turtle Farm. This is very touristy—we felt it was mostly a tour of souvenir shops, but cruiser reviews are mostly positive: A “nice overview” of the island.” The tour guide is “informative” and “friendly.” The turtle farm is “the best part” and “fun for the kids” (ask if you can “hold a turtle”), though some may be “appalled by the crowding of the turtles in the tanks.” Hell “didn’t impress” most cruisers. Overall, most cruisers felt it “worth their time” even though is “isn’t a sophisticated” excursion. Adult-only trip available (G42).

Turtles at the Cayman Turtle Farm

Take in the island’s sights by bus—you’ll stop and visit the Cayman Turtle Farm and Hell (a prehistoric rock formation). Then head out to sea on a 45-minute boat ride to meet the stingrays at the Stingray City sandbar. Equipment and instruction is provided so you can swim with the stingrays in 3–6 feet deep water. Only stingrays—and no fish—will be seen. See the cruiser reviews for the Grand Cayman Island Tour, above.
