Play with the Stingrays at Stingray City!

The Stingray City Sandbar Trip is one of the most iconic experiences in Grand Cayman. Trust us; this is not your ordinary encounter with sea creatures. 

Imagine wading through crystal-clear, waist-deep waters in the North Sound while graceful southern stingrays glide around you. 

This one-of-a-kind adventure with Red Sail Sports is suitable for all ages.

The Rum Point departure ensures a convenient, hassle-free way to reach Stingray City. This route is notably shorter compared with departures for Stingray City on the West Coast.

And when you arrive, you’ll have ample time to build a special connection with these friendly creatures. 

Don’t be shy; the stingrays are accustomed to human interaction. You can touch, pet, and even kiss them. And if you pucker up, local legend says you’ll have seven years of good luck!

Our experienced guides will share fascinating insights into the ecology and behavior of these magnificent marine animals, making it an educational trip too.

Pro Tip: Bring an underwater camera or a waterproof case for your phone to capture unforgettable moments as you frolic with the rays.

Explore an Underwater World on a 2-Tank AM North Wall Dive

If you’re an avid diver, no visit to Grand Cayman is complete without exploring the world-famous North Wall leaving from the Safehaven Marina or the Rum Point dock twice a week. 

This awe-inspiring vertical drop plunges thousands of feet into the abyss, making it a paradise for divers seeking the thrill of deep-sea exploration.

The 2-Tank AM North Wall Dive from Red Sail Sports takes you to some of the most stunning dive sites on the island, where you’ll encounter vibrant coral formations, dazzling fish species, and the occasional reef shark. 

As you drift along the wall’s edge, you’ll feel a sense of weightlessness and be humbled by the unfathomable vastness of the ocean.

Pro Tip: Experienced underwater photographers will find the North Wall a dream come true, so bring your camera gear to capture the underwater wonders.

Experience the Otherworldly Feel of Grand Cayman’s Bioluminescent Bay

A kayak tour of Grand Cayman’s Bioluminescent Bay with Cayman Kayaks is a truly unique, otherworldly experience.

The water in this sheltered bay is home to phytoplankton that, when disturbed, emit a flash of blue. This is a reaction aimed at deterring predators.

However, this means that when you dip a paddle or an oar into the water, it appears to glow for a moment.

You should note that tours don’t run all the time. The bioluminescence is only visible on the lunar cycle’s darkest nights when the moon is less than 11% illuminated.

And it’s not just the water that offers a stunning sight. You can also see a sky full of stars overhead!

The whole experience is a great way to connect with nature, science, and history.

Pro Tip: In addition to the kayak tour, Cayman Kayaks also offers a Bio Bay Electric Boat experience.
