The mangroves are an important part of Cayman's eco-system. They are an ideal habitat for birds, fish and a host of different invertebrate species. Take the time to explore the mangrove system and you’ll spot Cayman parrots, iguanas, turtles, lobsters, many fish and maybe even a sea horse! You will also learn about the root system of the mangroves that protect Cayman from large waves and storm surges that can happen during hurricanes as well as the animals that make the tangled roots their home.
A great way to explore the coastline of the islands is by kayak. With no emissions and no noise, it is a very peaceful way to explore the shoreline – the tours are fun, educational and eco-friendly.
