Explore the Best of Grand Cayman
On this private charter, we’ll take you to all of the island’s best spots. Click on the headlines below for a sneak peek of what you’ll see!
Stingray City lies between Morgan Harbor and Rum Point in North Sound off the northern coast of Grand Cayman. It is situated on a sandbar where the water is only 3 to 5 feet deep, providing visitors an opportunity to interact with South Caribbean stingrays.
These clever creatures started congregating in the area decades ago when fishermen returning from their fishing expeditions would toss the leftovers overboard. The stingrays began to associate the sound of incoming boat motors with food, and thus, Stingray City was born!
At Stingray City, you can feed the stingrays by hand, hold them, and even kiss them for good luck! We’ll teach you how to interact with these gentle creatures in a safe and respectful manner, so all you need to worry about is having fun.
Located about 5 to 7 minutes by boat from Stingray City, the Coral Garden is an enclave about 300 square yards in size. With depths varying from 6 to 10 feet, it’s the perfect spot for snorkeling in the warm Caribbean Sea.
Here you can find many different species of fish darting in and out of reefs and swimming among the colorful coral. Some of the marine life that call this area home include yellowtail, parrotfish, angelfish, sergeant majors, blue tangs, grunts, stingrays, and lobsters. These animals are used to the presence of humans and do not fear snorkelers, allowing you to experience them up close.
We will also stop at some of our favorite snorkeling spots known only to locals. Where are they? You’ll have to join us for a tour to find out!
Starfish Point is a beautiful beach located about 10 minutes from Stingray City. It gets its name from the colorful starfish (or sea stars) that thrive in its waters.
Get ready for a hands-on experience! Though commonly called “fish”, sea stars are actually echinoderms, a type of invertebrate. Because of this, their surface feels very hard and spiny — a feeling you will discover for yourself when you hold them (underwater)! Starfish Point is another one of Grand Cayman’s natural marvels that both adults and children alike are sure to love.
Kaibo Beach Restaurant
The Kaibo Restaurant & Beach Bar offers two different types of dining experiences: Kaibo Beach Restaurant and Upstairs at Kaibo. The Kaibo Beach Restaurant is located on the first floor right on the beach, allowing you to enjoy snacks and drinks while soaking up some rays. They also offer regular entrees in addition to burgers and sandwiches, all of which you can feast on while admiring the ocean. This restaurant offers delicious food at a reasonable price while boasting an unbeatable atmosphere.
As the name suggests, Upstairs at Kaibo is the restaurant located on the second floor. This eatery requires reservations, so please let us know if you’d like to dine here! They offer a more upscale faire of anywhere from two courses to a six-course tasting menu. Perfect for foodies, Upstairs at Kaibo provides a luxurious dinner setting overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Please note that the meal is not included in the charter price.
Bio Bay is the home of the bioluminescent plankton. The water here is very shallow (between 4 and 5 feet deep), and we will provide you with float noodles so that you can avoid standing on the delicate ground.
Here you’ll find yourself among flickering blue lights emitted by the plankton in the clear ocean water. Feel free to stick your hands and feet in — and swirl the water around a bit to see the colors dance! We provide snorkeling gear in case you want to hop in completely and see the plankton up close. Overall, Bio Bay is one of the jewels of Grand Cayman’s crown, and you won’t want to miss it!
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I customize my tour?
Absolutely. Each of our boat charters are private and completely customizable, meaning that you can spend as little or as much time in each spot as you wish.
Is it safe to swim with the stingrays?
Yes! We will train you on the do’s and don’ts of interacting with the stingrays to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable time.
Can I touch the bioluminescent plankton?
Absolutely! They are harmless and will not sting you. Feel free to swirl the water around with your hands and feet, or hop in and go snorkeling. We simply ask that you do not stand in the shallow water, as doing so can harm the marine life living on the ocean floor. For this reason, we provide float noodles.
Can I take photos in Bio Bay?
Yes! We encourage you to bring your camera in order to capture Bio Bay’s otherworldly atmosphere.
Can you pick me up from my accommodation?
We offer pick-ups for up to seven people in Seven Mile Beach, George Town, and West Bay. If your hotel or condo is located in any of these areas, we will be happy to transport you!
I came by cruise ship. Can you pick me up in port?
Sure thing! There is a Hard Rock Cafe only a few minutes walk from the cruise terminal, and we will meet you there. To get to this meeting point, come out of the cruise terminal and turn right at the sidewalk. The Hard Rock Cafe will then be on the waterfront on your left. Please keep in mind that we can only transport up to seven passengers.
We had 10 people and booked a whole day! Cira and Emerson showed all the best that Grand Cayman has to offer. They told us it was our day and they would take us anywhere we wanted to go! […] The price was very fair, especially considering the very personalized trip we had. Cira and Emerson were a blast to hang with! I highly recommend them! Read more
We had a party of 10 with 7 adults and 3 kids from 10-17 on a full day trip. Cira helped us line out the excursion with round trip transportation from our house. Captain Emerson and first mate Joe took great care of our group on the boat. The personal touch was above and beyond expectations, and the team made us feel right at home from the start. Read more
