Experience the fun of swimming with bottlenose dolphins and interacting with stingrays in this combination tour.
You have a lot to look forward to when your Carnival cruise arrives in George Town, especially if you take the Dolphin Swim & Stingray City shore excursion. This tour offers the once-in-a-lifetime experiences of swimming with dolphins and interacting with stingrays at Stingray City.
From the pier, you’ll take a short drive in air-conditioned comfort to Dolphin Cove. Here you’ll stroll along a walkway where you’ll see a variety of tropical birds that rule the roost. Once you reach the cove, there’ll be a brief orientation about these enchanting dolphins. Then in the water you go. Pet and kiss a dolphin. Shake a fin. Hear them sing to you and perform tricks. But for real fun, hang on for a belly ride. A dolphin is half submerged on its back and you grab on to his flippers for an awesome belly ride through the water. You’ll be amazed by the strength, flexibility and agility of these mammals.
After your dolphin encounter, you’ll board a boat and cruise to Grand Cayman Island’s famous Stingray City, a 12-foot dive site with an adjacent sand bar. Your tour guide will provide interesting facts about the local family of Southern Stingrays when you enter the shallow water on the sandbar. In just three feet of water, you can interact with more than a dozen stingrays as they glide by you. These gentle creatures will allow you to handle them. They like to be fed and have their bellies rubbed. You’ll be amazed when you touch them. Their skin feels a lot like velvet.
Upon leaving Stingray City, you’ll enjoy the return cruise back to Dolphin Cove where you can relax before boarding a motor coach to George Town. There will be time for shopping at the many duty-free stores within walking distance from the cruise terminal. You’ll find bargains on such luxury goods as watches, china, crystal, perfume and fine jewelry.
Instead of shopping, you have the option of being taken to world-famous Seven Mile Beach where you can enjoy the wide stretch of white sand beach, tropical breezes and swimming and snorkeling in the clear Caribbean Sea.
So for two amazing experiences in Grand Cayman Island that you’ll never forget, book the Dolphin Swim & Stingray City shore excursion now. It’s an unforgettable way to add fun ashore to your fun afloat.
