About this Grand Cayman (George Town) tour
From Polynesia to ancient Greece to the America's Cup, catamarans have long been prized for their spacious comfort and stable ride. And this 65-footer continues the tradition. Plus, it sails to one of the coolest spots on earth: Stingray City Sandbar, where a large number of winged underwater creatures are waiting for your visit.
They've been showing up there daily as long as locals can remember – originally lured by all the delicious fish guts and squid tossed overboard by fishermen cleaning their catch in this calm, shallow water. At some point, the rays figured out this was a free meal and a world-famous, must-see field trip was born. We don't feed them today - it's against regulations and is not in the animals' best interests, but they still come to greet everyone.
Just wade in, with or without snorkel and mask (water's so clear you barely need it). The crew will show you how to handle these beautiful Southern rays, whose name says sting but whose behavior says friendly pup. The on-board photographer will take your photo with them, if you like, for use in proving you didn't make this adventure up.
After the sandbar meet-up, you'll head over to a nearby coral reef to see what's up down under the surface. Chances are, there's a colorful crowd hanging out –snorkel in yourself to see. Wrasse and gobies and parrotfish and angelfish are among the regulars.
On the return trip, the cash bar opens for business. You can sit back, relax in the breeze, and toast the amazing world you live in.
Don't forget to recoat with sunscreen for the ride back. The rays are strong there.
Half shark, half stingray, all muscle
The Corvette Stingrays of the mid-60s totally captured the unbridled style enthusiasm of the times. The groundbreaking 1963 model remains one of the boldest and most prized car designs of all time. With its flared fenders and split rear windshield, its shape really was suggestive of a stingray prowling the reef. But its truest inspiration, according to legend, was a mako shark trophy mounted on the office wall of its chief designer, an avid fisherman and concept car guru.
