Best Family Activities

There are plenty of family-friendly activities and things to do in Cayman that will keep everyone entertained. Here are our recommendations.

  • Boat Trips are an awesome family day out! Tour operators offer several trips out to Stingray City where you can feed the stingrays, snorkel the Sandbar or Coral Gardens and possibly visit Rum Point or Kaibo for a Cayman-style fish lunch. See the Boat Trips page for more information.
  • Explore the Island with an experienced local guide. Book a tour with a company like Cayman Safari Adventures
  • Visit a Cultural Site like Pedro St. James or the Botanical Park. This is a nice day out and won’t overload younger members with historical facts.
  • Blue Iguana Safari Meet Grand Cayman’s “Blue Dragons” behind the scenes at the breeding facility at the Botanic Park. During this tour your guide will introduce you to some of the programme’s star breeders and explain how the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme was able to bring this endangered species back from the brink of extinction.
  • Camana Bay is a great option with two fountains to play in, the observation tower to climb and a harbour and landscaped courtyards to explore. See the Camana Bay section for more information.
