Top 3 Best Excursions in Grand Cayman

You have a 16 year old, a 10 year old, and a 5 year old. How in the world are you supposed to deliver unforgettable memories for all of them? One is knee-deep in video games while the other is skillfully crafting videos on TikTok. With these Grand Cayman adventures on your itinerary, you’ll have smiles from ear-to-ear.

  • Stingray Snorkel Adventure
    • Nothing screams “best excursion in Grand Cayman” more than VIP. On this private charter, you’ll tour the top Caribbean spots with an experienced Caymanian boat captain for views, soaks, and cultural stories you won’t find anywhere else on the island. Get up close and personal with gliding, majestic sea creatures at Stingray City and wow your little ones at a beach sprinkled with starfish (trust us, those star-shaped cuties won’t even look real!). And all throughout your half-day excursion, gain an authentic perspective of the Cayman Islands from the origins, history and anecdotes shared by your captain. Included in this charter are freshly caught appetizers, a seasonal fruit platter, bottled water and a surprise Caymanian beverage. And if that’s not enough, be sure to make use of the snorkel equipment to peer into the beauty below the surface. The pictures will no doubt be digital album-worthy.
  • Dolphin Royal Swim
    • Speaking of pictures, nothing screams “beach vacation” more than a snapshot kissing the nose of a sweet dolphin. Designed for kids and adults of all ages, spend a couple of hours immersed in the fun of belly rides, fun facts, and aquatic shows in this swimming with dolphins experience. In one of the best excursions in Grand Cayman, you’ll learn from experienced marine specialists about what makes these clever ocean mammals so loved and admired. The whole family will enjoy a boogie push (zoom around the lagoon with your dolphin pal), handshake, and even a stop by the turtle farm for an extra dose of sea life. It’s an animal lover’s dream.
  • Cayman Parrot Sanctuary
    • And for the last “woohoo”, nothing screams “island life” more than parrots, frigates and hermit crabs! Take a pause from playing in the sand and stop by the Cayman Parrot Sanctuary on the East End. What makes this tour one of the best excursions in Grand Cayman? It’s interactive, educational, and, well, downright fun. The Sanctuary is home to all sorts of animals — from guinea pigs to reptiles and rabbits. Carry some, feed others, or just enjoy the beautiful bird watching. Given that the Cayman Parrot is the national bird of the islands, this is the perfect opportunity for the kids to learn a little more about the rehabilitation work done to protect and ensure our Earth’s animals are healthy and thriving. And between the kids slides and zip lining nestled within indigenous plants and landscapes of the Cayman Islands, time will fly.

Summer doesn’t last forever, so make that time count. During your trip to the Cayman Islands, Cayman Visitor experiences will be sure to highlight the excitement, wonder and beauty of this already breathtaking tropical paradise. And while these are just a few of the best excursions in Grand Cayman designed for the family, explore them all to pick and choose what you know will wow your family.

Happy planning and happy summer 2023. For more information, feel free to contact us here.
