Stingray City is a shallow sand bar where stingrays gather. Decades ago fisherman cleaned their fish in the calm water of the shallows and sandbar area, which attracted them to the boats. Today it is one of the most popular areas in the Caymans as you can get in the shallow water to interact or snorkel amongst the stingrays.
Starfish Point is a shallow beach area with brilliantly coloured starfish strewn across the sand on the East side of Grand Cayman. The sea stars frequent the sand looking for food, which gives snorkelers a great chance to see them in the crystal clear waters.Relax and let us take you across turquoise waters to recharge.

Sport Diver’s Geri Murphy wrote an article on this dive site saying, “This remarkable formation begins at a shallow depth of 22 to 30 feet, and falls away to the abyssal depth of 1,000 feet. This wall is so vertical that you feel like a skydiver hanging in space. The visibility is so clear that you can see the wall 200 feet to the left, to right and directly below. It is the most amazing undersea panorama that you can imagine. You feel so small in the vastness of this towering cliff face.”
