The very best way to visit Stingray City, especially with children.

What a fantastic experience this is! We have just chartered the Sea Ray (The Cayman Elusion), for 3 hours, skippered by Adam and Arthur. On board were two adults (my husband and I), our two young children aged 6 and 7 (who have visited Stingray City before when my then 4 year old refused to get in the water!) and our 18 year old daughter who had never been before and was understandably nervous. Although it was a little bit on the breezy side, Adam managed to find a sheltered spot where we could all get in the water with the stingrays and it was just fantastic. It is superb, a real treat for adults but most especially for anyone with little children who would find the bigger boats very busy and overwhelming, as well as difficult to negotiate their way in and out of the water. No such problem on Elusion – it makes it child’s play! Our teenage daughter loved it – and I was convinced she would never get in with the stingrays but there was no stopping her! Thank you to Adam for being so delightful with the children who adored swimming with the stingrays thanks to him, and to lovely Arthur for taking all three of them on the jet ski ride of their lives at Starfish Point and found them starfish – we all talked about it for days. Lovely touches included a platform that lowers to almost water level so it is easy to get on and off the boat, cheese and crackers and a delicious plate of fresh fruit on skewers all provided (even though we were just on the boat from 9 to 12). I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Grand Cayman. Worth every penny. Heartbreakingly my camera had broken the day before so I couldn’t take any pictures but I went straight into town that afternoon and bought a new one so we wouldn’t miss out on any more amazing memories.
