Our party of 8 went to Stingray City, and enjoyed fabulous snorkeling on the Volare with Shaun and his shipmate Erlin. This was definitely a highlight of our cruise. Their personal service and hospitality can't be beat. You will not be disappointed. They love what they do and it shows. Our experience at Grand Cayman was high quality and high definition. I would recommend this and would do it again.
My family and I have never enjoyed a snorkeling trip as much as we did with Shaun Ebanks and his first mate Erlon. These guys are really personable. Shaun has a really beautiful Hunter sailing yacht that's fully equipped. Shaun and his mate are native Caymanians who really knows Cayman's waters very well and takes the time to explain everything you're seeing. They really made our Stingray City visit a memorable interaction with the friendly rays. This experience was far superior to an overcrowded powerboat. Our best time ever!! I would highly recommend Shaun Ebanks of Seven Seas Charters to anyone wishing a great time on the water while in the Cayman Islands.
Shaun provided us with a great day of sight seeing and sailing. His comand of the boat made us feel very comfortable. His knowledge of the island gave us a number of new ideas for how to enjoy Cayman. By the end of the day, Shaun felt like part of the family. We are returning in the spring of 2011 and plan to use Seven Seas Charters once again.
Thanks for a wonderful vacation experience. Your tour to Stingray City and our snorkeling trip was well worth the money. It was the highlight of our trip to the Cayman Islands. We enjoyed the boat ride to the barrief reef, touching and holding the stingrays and the snorkeling immensely. We also rode the Atlantis submarine but it didn't compare to the fun and sights of seeing the stingrays so closely and snorkeling around the reef, where we actually touched some beautiful fish. That was very cool !! My friends and co-workers couldn't believe that we actually touched and held the rays. You are a great host and family oriented. I didn't have to worry about my kids being safe or exposed to any negative things. I have already recommended your tour to my work mates back at my office. Next time we come back to the Caymans, we will be calling you to schedule another tour. Thanks for your help in making our vacation such a positive experience.
My family was on a cruise through the Caribbean and had the good fortune of finding Shaun Ebanks of Seven Seas Charters for a private charter to Stingray City and Coral Gardens. It was a tremendous day for the entire family, including my three children, and was easily chosen as the best day of our week long vacation. The boat was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Shaun and his first mate were extremely friendly and helpful, and the individual attention we received was much better than fighting the cruise ship crowds on a larger boat. I would highly recommend Seven Seas Charters to anyone visiting Grand Cayman.
Janet and I would like to thank you for an amazing half day charter. Your knowledge of the Islands and the way you organised our time was incredible. I enjoyed Stingray City very much but how you got Janet to snorkel, I will never know. The trip was much better than expected.
We did a trip with you to Stingray City and Coral Gardens in February of 2010 and it was wonderful. You were very kind to all of us and your boat was very clean, comfortable and without a large crowd. This was an unforgettable experience and we will cherish this memory in our minds for a very long time. Thank you so much.
Shaun we had a wonderful time on your charter to Stingray City and the Barrier Reef. It was very relaxing, informative and made our vacation very special. Stingray City and the Barrier Reef were awesome. You and your mate's knowledge of the beautiful marine area's were incredible and we will have lasting memories of this experience. You and your crew were very kind and we would definitely come again.
We had a memorable experience with Shaun Ebanks of Seven Seas Charters in Grand Cayman. From the moment we stepped off our cruise ship to the moment he returned us back, we had the most enjoyable time. Our tour was outstanding. He shared so much about the island, along with the history of Stingray City and Coral Gardens. He pointed out the many kinds of marine life, fed the stingrays and then sailed over to the Kaibo to have lunch. A pleasure to be with and a wonderful memory. We will be back !!
My family and I chartered a sailing yacht with Shaun Ebanks of Seven Seas Charters in August 2010. Shaun picked us up from our hotel and we sailed over to Stingray City and the surrounding reef. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend him. The skipper and his mate were extremely professional, accommodating and friendly. We had two babies under the age of one year and two grandmothers on the vessel and everyone had an equally good time. Thank you for such a memorable experience.
I would like to tell you how much we appreciated the wonderful trip you took us on. A trip that was unlike any other experience that we have had as a family. We are so glad that we decided to charter our trip to Stingray City with you rather than go on a "tourist trap" with 50 or more other people. The opportunity to be the only customers on board was truly special. From the moment we stepped on board your beautiful vessel "Volare", we knew we had made the right choice. The experience to Stingray City was truly amazing. We were so impressed by the care and attention that you gave to us, showing us what to do and letting us feed the stingrays. From there we then went on a snorkeling tour to the Barrier Reef. I must say that I have been on several snorkeling trips around the world and on every single one, you are brought to the drop zone and then told to jump in and look around. I have never had the captain of the vessel (Shaun) dive in and give us a guided tour, pointing out various fish, coral formations, conch, starfish and taking the time to explain it to us.
From snorkeling we went over to the Kaibo for lunch which was excellent. The ride back was the capper of an incredible day. It felt as if we had our own sailing yacht cruising in the middle of the Caribbean.. I can't think of a better way to enjoy the beauty of Grand Cayman and the Caribbean sitting on the deck of "Volare". Thank you, thank you, thank you !!
We are back in Michigan and I wanted to take a second to Thank You for the wonderful time we had on your sailing yacht recently. Your suggestion that on Monday's were best to proceed on the charter (to avoid the crowds) was very much correct. You made me and my family feel so at ease especially my 3 year old daughter Allison. Your charter was truly first class. Allison is still taking about the boat ride and swimming with the Stingrays. Thanks again for a wonderful time- we hope to see you again some time.
