Spend a Day with Stingrays, Snorkeling, and Starfish
On this three-hour private charter, we’ll take you to some of Grand Cayman’s most famous attractions. Click on the headlines below for an overview of the three main points of interest!
Stingray City lies between Morgan Harbor and Rum Point in North Sound off the northern coast of Grand Cayman. It is situated on a sandbar where the water is only 3 to 5 feet deep, providing visitors an opportunity to interact with South Caribbean stingrays.
These clever creatures started congregating in the area decades ago when fishermen returning from their fishing expeditions would toss the leftovers overboard. The stingrays began to associate the sound of incoming boat motors with food, and thus, Stingray City was born!
At Stingray City, you can feed the stingrays by hand, hold them, and even kiss them for good luck! We’ll teach you how to interact with these gentle creatures in a safe and respectful manner, so all you need to worry about is having fun.
Located about 5 to 7 minutes by boat from Stingray City, the Coral Garden is an enclave about 300 square yards in size. With depths varying from 6 to 10 feet, it’s the perfect spot for snorkeling in the warm Caribbean Sea.
Here you can find many different species of fish darting in and out of reefs and swimming among the colorful coral. Some of the marine life that call this area home include yellowtail, parrotfish, angelfish, sergeant majors, blue tangs, grunts, stingrays, and lobsters. These animals are used to the presence of humans and do not fear snorkelers, allowing you to experience them up close.
Starfish Point is a beautiful beach located about 10 minutes from Stingray City. It gets its name from the colorful starfish (or sea stars) that thrive in its waters.
Get ready for a hands-on experience! Though commonly called “fish”, sea stars are actually echinoderms, a type of invertebrate. Because of this, their surface feels very hard and spiny — a feeling you will discover for yourself when you hold them (underwater)! Starfish Point is another one of Grand Cayman’s natural marvels that adults and children alike are sure to love.

We offer pick-ups for up to seven people in Seven Mile Beach, George Town, and West Bay. If your hotel or condo is located in any of these areas, we will be happy to transport you!

By far the best choice I’ve ever made was going with all aboard charters! Cira made sure that my husbands 30th b day was the best day ever. She even decorated the boat to make it even that much better. […] From beginning to end this day was perfect. I cant thank all aboard charters enough and we cannot wait to come back again ! Read more
They were very knowledgeable of the great snorkeling spots. BB was great at explaining safety instructions on handling the stingrays. They never rushed any of the stops. It allowed us to enjoy and relax with ease. […] We hope to enjoy this same charter again. Read more
