CANCELLED TOURS ... and the season of disappointment

 Stingray City Sandbar in Grand Cayman

November ... the month that blows business away!

This is a tough month for Grand Cayman Stingray City tour operators - after the long and quiet season that stretches through September and October, we then need to contend with November/beginning December - the season of high winds which bring unsafe conditions in the North Sound.

We express our sincere thanks to those guests who have received the news of cancelled tours with understanding. We are a company that pride ourselves in putting safety before financial consideration, and would not dream of putting guests into a bad situation simply to make a much needed buck.

We understand how much you look forward to our tours and visiting the rays, and completely empathise with your disappointment. It is our hope that we will be fortunate enough to have another opportunity to host you in safer conditions!

Naturally, at these times there are thankfully a minority of guests who voice vitriolic abuse at the crew & office staff (as well as promises of bad Trip Advisor reviews), when losing business due to circumstances beyond our control can be very hard to swallow. And yes, we are aware of operators still touring in such conditions - it is a choice we completely disagree with.

We can only stoically wait out the bad weather whilst praying for better conditions and days when we can again safely and cheerfully have the privilege of sharing these beautiful Caribbean spots with our guests.

Wishing you all safe and happy travels!
