Leave the crowds and financial centers behind as you head to the quieter, lesser-traveled areas of Grand Cayman. Relax on the beach at Rum Point on a hammock or lounge chair, looking over the peaceful North Sound.
Your Grand Cayman tour begins with a ride along the coast through South Sound, an upscale neighborhood dotted with a mixture of mansions and small, traditional-style cottages. Wind past Spotts Landing and through Lower Valley as you continue along the coastline. Buildings give way to lush landscapes as you and your guests arrive at Bodden Town, the island's first settlement. Established in the 1800s, this village was initially the capital of the Cayman Islands and a major hub of maritime activity until repeated hurricanes nearly filled in the harbor.
From there you will head to Rum Point with its sugar sand beaches on the north side. At Rum Point you will have 2 hours to explore the area your way: swim or snorkel in the crystal blue waters, relax in a hammock with Cayman's legendary Mudslide drink or enjoy a relaxing waterfront lunch.
Your 4-hour Grand Cayman excursion concludes back in George Town where you can shop for beautiful jewelry, sample various flavours of rum cake and receive a mini history lesson at the statue-lined Hero's Square. Unwind and explore the softer side of Grand Cayman by booking your spot today.
Please Note: Children under 18 must be accompanied by adults. Collapsible wheelchair/walker permitted as long as guests can walk short distances.
The starting location was easy to find and the desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our driver was 20 minutes late, but he took us to all of the places mentioned and we felt that we got a good look at the island. We were amazed at how expensive it is to eat on the island. I'm glad I went on a cruise, as I will never schedule a vacation there. Another unfortunate incident was that our ferry driver on the way back from the restaurant to pick up some stranded tourists. The tourists were unappreciative, and it made us so late that we had no time in the town to shop or look around.
We expected to be in a van with a few other people, but as it turned out, my friend and I were the only ones on the tour that day. We had to good fortune to have Birnie as our tour guide. He was knowledgable and just delightful. He told us about the history and took us to see the sights. It was a lot of fun.

8-10 of us boarded the van and headed off to see things that the average cruiser does not see. It was great to see real life on the island. Wish that the tour company had provided water for us. When we got to our lunch/beach stop at Rum Point we were distressed to find that the town had shut the electric power off so that they could do upgrades. That meant that the restrooms were locked and food was not available.Eventually things were up and running. We could pay for our food with US dollars but change was in local currency only. Sooo,what do they do with the US $??? The beach and water were BEAUTIFUL. The tour also included a water taxi ride. Saw big iguanas in the mangroves! Very nice tour.
