Grand Cayman Far Side Tour
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 1 hour and 45 minutes 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 and/or ferry, where you may have some free time to shop for beautiful jewelry, sample various flavours of rum cake and receive a mini history self-guided lesson at the statue-lined Hero's Square. Unwind and explore the softer side of Grand Cayman by booking your spot today.

Loved Loved Loved this your. It was our best excursion and our guide was so friendly and accommodating! Wonderful memories and even a few extra stops!
Having been to Grand Cayman before, we wanted to visit our favorite beach, Rum Point. This was the only excursion we found to go there. The problem was our ship got in early and we had to waste time before we went on the tour. The tour took an hour or so and our ship was leaving in the early afternoon so we only got maybe an hour at Rum Point. We also took a boat to the shopping area where our same bus driver picked us up, but we had to wait another 30 min or so for the boat. It seemed silly and like there was a lot of wasted time on this tour.

This excursion was the perfect day! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and very accommodating. Driver knew many interesting facts about the island and let us ask questions. I would definitely recommend!

This tour included highlights of the island including celebrity homes,a history lesson and a brief but enjoyable stop at a fabulous beach Would recommend especially if you have mobility limitations.

There were five of us that went on this tour and we all had a good time. It started a little later than the other tours so we did not have to rush to get there and did some shopping on the short walk to the office. We rode in a nice tour nus with A/C and Bernie was out tour guide. Bernie talked about the history of the island as we drove and pointed out homes of celebrities and all sorts of interesting details. We stopped at two beaches and had plenty of time to swim, walk around and get lunch or drinks and then we took a boat back across to bay. The boat ride was boring and the driver did not say anything during the ride. We met Brenie again after the boat ride and he took us back through town and pointed out some cool stuff. We got a good tour of a lot of the island and still had a couple hours to walk around and shop after we were done.
