Staying in a group of islands in the middle of the sea, most of your activities would definitely involve the water. At the Cayman Islands, you are in the middle of one of the world’s most beautiful waters, and one of the most pristine, too.
On all the three islands, there is a head-spinning list of choices that promises some of the most wonderful experiences you can find in this part of the world.
Sailing In The Cayman Islands
For that leisurely relaxation, the island’s slow lifestyle is perfect. The wind will take you away towards the horizon to enjoy the peace and quiet in the middle of the deep blue sea.
There are ships to charter if you know how to sail. (Of course, there are sailing lessons provided by the Cayman Island Sailing Club for newbies of the sea.)
However, if you are after some simple relaxation, you can still sail to the open seas with seasoned sailors on crewed ships. There are also cruises available.
Fishing In The Cayman Islands
You will have some truly memorable angling moments if you go fishing by the sea around the islands. You can do your fly fishing for tuna, blue marlin and wahoo.
On shallow waters, you can lure in the groupers and snapper by bottom fishing. (Don’t forget to release your catch afterwards.)
Kayaking In The Cayman Islands
Kayaking is one perfect way of taking in the scene at a much slower pace. You can learn the natural history of the islands while on a guided tour of its mangrove forests and wildlife.
Have a whiff of the morning breeze (or catch the beautiful sunset) while you navigate the North Island’s long shoreline or Rum Point’s canals and coves. If you go kayaking at night, you might catch some bioluminescence phenomenon.
Windsurfing In The Cayman Islands
One of the most popular sports on the islands is windsurfing. It’s perfectly safe because the wind blows into the islands. Windsurfers are blown back into the shores instead of into the deep waters.
Red Sail Sports is the only water sports operator that offers windsurfing lessons. It is said (by instructors) that the average beginner takes around 20 minutes to learn the basics of the sports.
Snorkeling and diving In The Cayman Islands
Because it is surrounded by the sea, snorkeling around the islands to look at the marine creatures up close is one of the most thrilling experiences you can do around. For snorkeling, there are shallow reefs around the Cayman Islands perfect for your activity.
If you have your diving gear, you can go into the depths and be mesmerized by the undersea kingdom just around. Either way, you will have a great experience.
Boat tours In The Cayman Islands
For people who don’t snorkel nor dive, you can still see the wonders of the sea in their natural habitat by way of the boat tours.
In the safety and dryness of your glass-bottom boats, you can marvel at the real oceanarium. See the colors of the tropical fishes and the corals underwater.
For big spenders, you can rent some submarines to take you into the depths of the Grand Cayman. What to do in the Cayman Islands? One word: enjoy!
