Snorkelling and diving Cayman’s crystalline waters are one thing, but if you really want to experience Cayman living at its truest – a day spent out on the water is a must! Every chance they get locals find themselves on their boats, and a private boat charter is the cherry on top of a visit to Grand Cayman, and a family-friendly activity suitable for all ages to enjoy!

Whether you’re after fishing for your dinner, or a private sailing charter sounds more your style, there is a boat tour to suit everyone’s tastes. Prices vary according to the size of the charter, and the additional services expected, but on average rates per hour begin around KYD$250. Read on for some of the stand-out charter options available in Grand Cayman.

Helpful Tip

Protect Cayman’s coral and marine life by using a reef-friendly sunscreen when spending time on the beach and in the water. Sunscreens that contain oxybenzone are toxic for coral reefs. Reef-friendly suncream can be bought at Kirk Market, Le Visage in Camana Bay and Waterman.

Enjoy a day on the water in style with Cayman Luxury Charters. Their three boats can host 12, 13 or 15 people, making it a special day for all the family! They also have a waverunner on board, meaning you can experience Starfish Point at speed!
