Grand Cayman Hell and Turtle Farm Orientation
Hell Tour & Turtle Farm Cruise Trip
This quick orientation tour will give you a great taste of Cayman, with a visit to the famous Turtle Farm and an additional trip to Hell and back - so to speak.
Setting out from downtown, your Grand Cayman tour will take you to the most popular sites on the island's west end. A stop will be made at the Turtle Farm. Originally built as a farm to keep up with the demand for turtle meat and other products, it has since become a conservation center focused on reducing the dependency on the wild population of sea turtles. The facility is used as a scientific and research center, and also is a breeding facility, so that more turtles can be released into the sea. Here, you will see hundreds of turtles at every stage of development on display in various sized tanks, as well as a breeding beach next to a large lagoon where breeding turtles lay their eggs.
Hell, in the district of West Bay, is an outcropping of jagged dark limestone, which looks like someone's imagined vision of its namesake. You will visit the rock formation and walk past the red, Netherworld-themed post office. If you'd like to purchase postcards, just ask your guide to stop.
During your Grand Cayman excursion, photo stops will be made in front of the stately Governor's House, and also in front of the tin-roofed Old Homestead, a traditional, island-style house which is one of the most photographed sites on the island. You will also make a quick stop at Seven Mile Beach, world-renowned for its beauty and considered one of the Caribbean's best beaches.

I had been to the Cayman Islands many years ago and wanted a tour that would highlight some of the places I visited. It did not disappoint. The guide/ driver was entertaining as well as informative. The Turtle farm was amazing. It was a low impact, fun tour.
Your location was very easy to find and everyone very courteous. Dennis our guid was very informed and lots of fun. We would take one of your tours again when we take another cruise without question

This excursion is short and sweet... my grandson was 6 and he loved it.. you pretty much move right along.. look at Turtles in tanks. Feed a few if u want to spend 5$ for the bag of food. Then he got time to enter a smaller tank and hold a few. Done..inexpensive day!!!!!Adults only, properly not for you!!!!

Went to hell and back and all around the Grand Cayman Island with Tim who has lived there for 30 years and was very entertaining. He even took our postcards back to hell so that they could be post office stamped after we wrote the cards at the end of the tour. The tour was about two hours which left us time to walk about Georgetown and we discovered the national Museum which is on the main street and was three floors of displays and well worth the time avoiding the souvenir shops
