Sitting on the beach and soaking up the Caribbean sun is one of the best things to do in the Cayman Islands. Pearly white sand, beautiful views of the sea, and crystal-clear water make relaxing on the beach an all-day affair. However, there’s way more to the Cayman Islands than a day spent at the beach. Some of the best activities here can be enjoyed underwater, in a boat, or while out exploring the sites of Grand Cayman. From world-class snorkeling to deep-sea fishing to swimming with dolphins to land tours and excursions, there are so many fun things to experience when you travel to Grand Cayman.
Snorkeling around Grand Cayman
Much of Grand Cayman’s beauty lies below the surface. Experience all of it when you take part in an exciting snorkeling excursion. Snorkel with beautiful stingrays as part of Cayman Visitor’s Stingray City tours or get up close to dazzling starfish at Starfish Point. Grand Cayman is home to gorgeous coral reefs, and snorkeling is the best way to take in the vibrant sea life of this diverse ecosystem. Visitors who prefer more privacy and exclusivity can rent a private charter for a day of snorkeling around the island. Up to 16 guests can gather on a high-quality center console boat that features a comfortable, air-conditioned cabin. Deep-sea fishing from one of these state-of-the-art boats is another unforgettable way to experience the Cayman Islands. If you’re lucky, you’ll haul in mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, or wahoo. Looking for a unique snorkeling adventure? The Kittiwake Wreck provides participants a special opportunity to snorkel Grand Cayman’s largest shipwreck, where they’ll find a variety of fascinating marine life. No matter your skill level, you’re sure to find the snorkeling excursion that’s perfect for you.
Swimming with dolphins
One of the best things to do in the Cayman Islands is to interact with the Caribbean’s most intelligent and friendly mammals. When you take part in Dolphin Discovery Grand Cayman, you’ll swim, jump, and even kiss these incredible sea creatures. Whether it’s action and speed you’re after or simply getting up close to dolphins, choose your adventure from the Dolphin Lovers Swim, Dolphin Swim Adventure, and Dolphin Royal Swim. Depending on the dolphin excursion you choose, you might get to experience the famous belly ride, boogie push, or a dolphin handshake! Both children and adults will enjoy encountering one of Grand Cayman’s most fascinating mammals under the careful gaze of licensed instructors. They’ll share interesting dolphin facts, including tips on how to create a healthy, green environment. No matter which excursion you select, the memories you make while swimming with dolphins around Grand Cayman will last a lifetime.
Exploring Grand Cayman on land
Grand Cayman is full of interesting sites both on and off the beach. Put your feet on terra firma and head to Cayman Spirits Company Distillery to sample some of the most delicious rum and vodka in the Caribbean. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the distillery’s custom-built, 5000-square foot facility and sample rare and seasonal spirits crafted from local ingredients. If you prefer a more educational experience, book a tour of Pedro St. James, a historical landmark and the oldest building on Grand Cayman. Visitors will enjoy a multisensory 3D movie and a tour of the interesting Great House full of island history. Encounter unforgettable beauty at the Cayman Crystal Caves, one of Grand Cayman’s most recent natural attractions. You’ll step inside three stunning caves as part of this captivating tour.
