What is Stingray City?The 'sandbar' at Stingray City is one of, if not the, most visited tourist attractions in the Cayman Islands. Over 50% of stayover guests and over 30% of cruise visitors come to this lovely 3-4 foot deep sandbar in the North Sound off the coast of Grand Cayman. This naturally occurring sandbar has never been home to the southern stingray we have all come to know and love.  Rather, they have started to come here purposely to see us after years and years of us feeding them.  In reality, they come to see us at the sandbar as much as we come to see them so you don't need to be worried about us 'invading' their home.  On your trip, be sure to ask our team about the more detailed history of this truly one of a kind place! Stingray City is perfect for people of all ages and is sure to be an experience you won't soon forget. No trip to Grand Cayman is complete without a trip to Stingray City by boat!

Why Stingray City?As mentioned, Stingray City is a must when visiting Grand Cayman.  The sandbar is generally quite calm and only 3-4 feet deep meaning everyone can normally touch the bottom.  Most importantly, the southern stingrays that visit here are absolutely adorable creatures - we call them underwater puppies.  They will swim right up to you and brush alongside you.  They're not scared or intimidated and they're happy to have us feed, kiss and hold them.  There are other places in the world where you can swim with Stingrays but there is no other place quite like this.  There is no cage, no pen and no schedule. The memories you make at Stingray City will be sure to last an entire lifetime.

Who can enjoy Stingray City?The short answer is anyone! At Cobalt Custom Charters, your dedicated team will give you a safety briefing before getting into the water but if you still aren't comfortable you can always sit on the back of the boat and we can bring a stingray close enough that you can touch it and see it up close. The water being so shallow and normally quite calm plus the stingrays being so accustomed to human interaction makes this a memorable stop for everyone. We've taken out people of all ages from less than 1 year old to 75+.

Why Should I Book A Private Charter With Cobalt Custom Charters?When booking a boat charter for your Stingray City tour, you essentially have two options. The first option is to go with a larger boat that is typically packed with people and an experience that is anything but customized. It’s also worth mentioning that these types of outfits mainly ONLY do Stingray City tours and once they’re done taking you to the sandbar, that’s it. You’re back on shore. Plus, your time can be spent waiting for others as you can’t decide what stops to do and for how long if you want to keep moving. Therefore, in the same amount of time you can do a lot more on a private tour! The second option is a customized tour with Cobalt Custom Charters that accommodates up to eight people comfortably and offers a boutique style and luxurious experience to your tour. Unlike bigger charter outfits that simply grind out the time and offer only one option, a Stingray City tour can be only the beginning of your Grand Cayman tour by boat. You want to hit Rum Point after holding and feeding Stingrays? We can do it. You want to head over to Starfish Point immediately after that? Consider it done. Want to watch a sunset and enjoy the bioluminescence bay? No problem! Let us bespoke your experience, not grind it out.
