Grand Cayman Far Side Tour
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 an hour bus 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 approximately 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 Grand Cayman excursion concludes back in George Town, either by bus or ferry, 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.

Island beautiful but it seemed that driver wasted time driving us to beach by stopping in front of houses that he was impressed with and telling us who owned them. He could have taken us straight to beach and give us info on the way without pulling over. Liked the ferry ride.
SMALL GROUP WHICH WAS MORE ENJOYABLE THAN CRUISE LINE EXCURSIONS. NOT FAR FROM SHIP EXIT WAS THE EXCURSION PROVIDER. TOUR HOST GREG HAD EXCEPTIONAL IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF ISLAND AND TOOK US ALL OVER ISLAND SO COULD SEE THE REAL RESIDENTS LIFE.JUST BE AWARE THERE IS ONLY ABOUT AN HOUR OF BEACH TIME.

Met our tour guide and drove around the perimeter of Grand Cayman. We would have preferred less time at the beach and more guided touring.

We enjoyed our ride and driver to Rum Point. Unfortunately I’ve forgotten his name (possibly Bernie) but he was so interesting and very helpful!! We were able to return back to Georgetown via and ferry, which was fun and we were once again met by our driver who brought us back to the pier. I would recommend this trip.

We enjoyed riding to the other side of the island. The one beach was closed and we ended up going to Star Point beach which was nice. Then we went to another place for lunch which was not included. Overall, the driver was informative and we saw a lot of the island.
