You have to take a boat to Stingray City.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you mean can you take a taxi to the dock used by one of the tour boat operators and buy a ticket for Stingray City? Doubtful. I'm not even sure a taxi would take that fare.

It is best to take a tour - either purchased from the cruise ship or one you pre-arrange yourself. You can also buy the Stingray City tour at the tender dock in Georgetown but they have limited capacity. The government controls the number of boats going to Stingray City each day and they can fill up and sell out quickly.

We just got back from Grand Cayman. Stingray City was the highlight of our trip. We booked with Moby Dick tours in advance over the internet. They were great!

Our cruise ship docked about a five minute walk from where they arranged to meet us. There were several people from our ship also booked, a total of 32 people on the excursion. We got on a bus, took a short ride to their pier and first stopped at the barrier reef to snorkel. Then on to Stingray City. The name is deceiving, as it is a sandy spot near the barrier reef, which can only be reached by boat. We had 45 minutes with the stingray. The guides, Nicholas and William, gave a short talk on stingrays and safety. They then cut up squid to feed them. Everyone got a chance to hold, feed and kiss a stingray. The water was waist to shoulder deep depending on your height. My mother-in-law, who is only 5ft and cannot swim could not participate since the water was up to her chin. Nicholas was kind enough to bring a stingray over to the boat, so she could sit on the bottom ladder rung and pet it. They were amazingly gentle.

The bus then dropped us off at our request at Seven Mile Beach. We spent an hour enjoying the beach, eating and drinking at the small restaurant and then took a cab back to the ship. Cabs were lined up waiting and charged $5.00 per person. I would definately book with Moby Dick Tours again.
