Horseback Ride 'n' Swim
Horseback Swim & Ride Day Trip
The Ride 'n' Swim Grand Cayman excursion is a must if you are looking for an experience out of the ordinary. And aren't you?
Experience the pure, natural beauty of Grand Cayman from horseback. Walk or slowly trot along the pristine, white-sand beaches of West Bay, as the azure waters lap at the feet of your steed.
Your Grand Cayman excursion begins when you are picked up at the pier and shuttled to the north shore of the island, where your horse awaits. The transfer takes approximately 30 minutes; along the way, you will have glimpses of the world-famous beaches and receive a brief history of this gorgeous island.
You will arrive in West Bay, at the tip of the island, and home to stunning beaches and magnificent ocean views. After a brief introduction and instruction, mount your horse and enjoy the peacefulness of nature at its most relaxing, with just your private party and your guide. Your ride lasts approximately 90 minutes, and you will be able to relax as your horse lazily treks across the beach, letting you take in the awesome Caribbean Sea and lush scenery. The exquisite natural backdrop atop your horse makes for a great photo op, so be sure and have your photo taken as a souvenir of one incredible adventure. End your Grand Cayman tour with a refreshing dip in the Caribbean Sea... on horseback! This ride has the added bonus of swimming with the horses in the Caribbean Sea. Riders who prefer to stay dry will dismount their horses and wait on the beach until the conclusion of the swim, which lasts approximately 15 minutes. After this brief rest, you will be returned to your starting point, where you can tell everyone about your awesome experience.
Please Note: The Cayman horse is a smaller breed than you may be used to. The maximum weight the horse can accommodate is 225 pounds. Please do not book this tour if you are over this weight. Guests over the maximum weight will be denied a horse and will not be refunded

Horseback riding into the ocean and swim and it was beautiful. It is August so it was a nice refresher to get wet and cool off. The tour guides were awesome, nice, we felt safe and comfortable with them and Grand Cayman was a beautiful and clean island. Remember the sun screen! Even my dark skinned husband burned with sun screen on. The ship does not arrive until 10am so we felt rushed and like we missed out on shopping and sightseeing. We wished the ship would arrive sooner. Also, this port is unable to pull up to the island, so it docks at sea. If you want to go ashore then you are required to take a “tender” boat, which is like a ferry. Get your tickets as soon as you can from the ship and leave as early as possible to the island or you will be wasting precious time. We didn’t arrive on the island until after 1045 since we had to wait on the tender boat. Overall, this was my favorite excursion and Grand Cayman was the most beautiful island I've ever visited.

This was our best excursion. We were on our 10 year anniversary & it was amazing. Jordan & his crew were so helpful & fun. Going in the ocean with the horses was such a cool experience.

I’ve always wanted to ride horseback on a beach so it’s been on my bucket list for quite a while. This excursion checked that off plus so much more. I was in a small group of three plus Jordan (the fantastic guide) which made it more relaxed. Then the saddle came off and went way out in the water and you could feel the horse get lighter and you realize it’s swimming ! It blew my mind !!!

The whole experience was great from beginning to end. Our driver came to find us at the pick-up location on time. She was very nice and talked to us the whole way about island life, which we really enjoyed. Our guide was very helpful and our horses were well cared for and healthy. The time in the ocean was really incredible. I would 100% recommend this excursion to anyone!
