Grand Cayman Activities


For those who don't want to take part in an cruise-organised excursion, the following are a selection of activities you can enjoy on Grand Cayman. You'll usually save money over cruise-organised excursions to the same places, but might have to arrange your own transportation.  


Send a postcard from this seaside village's post office and have a postmark to treasure. There are also novelty items "from Hell" and, on a more serious side, a jagged ironshore coastline that's perfect for photos. A guided tour of Hell is available as part of various shore excursions.

Boatswain's Beach / Cayman Turtle Farm

Pronounced ‘Bo-suns’ Beach, this one-of-a-kind, 23 acre adventure marine park promises to become one of the most exciting in the Caribbean. Boatswain’s Beach celebrates Caymanians’ stewardship of the seas and relationship with nature through tactile, colorful, educational and memorable experiences. The park allows visitors to experience the rich history of Caymanian life in a fun and safe environment while providing opportunities to observe and interact with native flora and fauna. The park offers visitors a unique opportunity to swim and snorkel with fish and other marine life in its 1.3 million gallon salt water lagoon. Guests can also peer into a predator tank and come nose-to-nose with sharks, eels, and other large fish. For those less adventurous, they can wander through the beautiful free-flight bird aviary, marvel at the dinosaur-like iguanas, or stroll down an historic Caymanian street complete with porch side artisans. Children and adults alike will delight in interacting with starfish, urchins and crabs at the touch pool. The only one of its kind in the world, the Cayman Turtle Farm is home to over 11,000 green sea turtles, ranging in size from six ounces to six hundred pounds. Turtles are available for guests to hold for an amazing and unique photo opportunity.
