Tour Details

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 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 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.

This tour was my favourite of the trip. Two beautiful beaches and a fun boat ride back to port. What could be better? The Rum Point beach area was gorgeous and we had a great calamari snack. Would recommend without hesitation.

The Far Side tour is beautiful! Along with two other couples we spent several hours touring the backside of Grand Cayman. We stopped at Starfish Beach and spent two hours on Rum Point Beach. Our guide was friendly and informative. We were away from most other tourists and cruisers, so all in all this was a great trip.

Due to strong winds, we had to dock in a different area so we did not get to Georgetown but the rest of the excursion was great !! The tour was very interesting and the beach stop was very relaxing - beautiful beach and great food. The only disappointment was that if we wanted to go snorkeling, it cost - it wasn't included in the tour fee.
