Cayman Island tours come in all shapes and sizes, and many of them involve the water. The Cayman Islands are surrounded by the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, and these waters boast some of the world's best snorkel and dive sites. Snorkeling and diving are the top things to do in the Cayman Islands, and there are a bunch of tours that highlight these activities. For those who prefer staying dry while they explore the area waters, the Grand Cayman tours include small submarine tours. It's also possible to peer in on the marine world during a tour at Boatswain's Beach Turtle Farm. A large, clear wall at Boatswain's Beach offers underwater views of the artificial lagoon. The lagoon might be artificial, but the marine life isn't.
The Grand Cayman tours are the most popular tours in the Cayman Islands, partly because of the fact that Grand Cayman is the largest and busiest island in the chain. Most of the tours in Georgetown Grand Cayman revolve around shopping and sightseeing, and they can also feature stops in West Bay, Bodden Town, and various east and north coast destinations. A side trip to Rum Point on the north coast can always be fun when getting away from Grand Cayman's relatively busy west coast is in order.
Cayman Island sightseeing tours can be enjoyed on all of the main islands, and they often employ the use of a bus, a taxi, or a boat for getting around. Helicopter tours can also be booked on Grand Cayman Island, and they offer a bird's eye view of attractions such as Seven Mile Beach and Stingray City. Coincidentally, many of the Cayman Island tours that involve staying at sea level also highlight Seven Mile Beach and Stingray City. Seven Mile Beach is the most famous beach in the Cayman Islands, while Stingray City is one of the most unique snorkel and dive sites in the entire Caribbean.
The Cayman Island tours that involve sightseeing can involve more than just staring out a window or out to sea while you listen to a guide. More often than not, they also include some fun activities. Kayaking through mangrove canals is one of the options when it comes to the Grand Cayman tours, for example, and over on Cayman Brac, the hiking tours are especially rewarding. Unless you prefer the services of a guide, the hiking tours on Cayman Brac Island can be self guided. The main tourist office on the island distributes free guides that offer insight into the nature trails, as well as the heritage trails.
