THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU CHARTER THIS BOAT
The Stingray City-Sandbar is one of the most popular visitor destinations as you have the unique experience to stand in waist height crystal clear water and interact with wild docile Southern Atlantic Stingrays. You have the chance to hold, feed and even give the stingrays a kiss which is meant to bring luck that is said to last for seven years.
Star Fish Point
Star Fish Point is a secluded beach that happens to have a high population of star fish in the shallows allowing for an amazing photo opportunity.
Snorkeling is a tranquil and relaxing way for the whole family to experience the underwater life of the Cayman Islands together.
The majority of spots we would snorkel in are about 10 ft. deep and provides the opportunity to see many local corals and a variety of our beautiful fish. Also snorkeling is a great opportunity to catch some fresh conch and lobster that can be prepared on the boat during your charter. (Conch Season is only open November 1st until May 1st & Lobster Season opens December 1st until March 1st)
Kaibo Restaurant and Beach Bar
Kaibo is an excellent spot to stop for a bite to eat or for a few drinks. It is located less than 5 minutes away from Star Fish Point. The menu caters to a wide variety of tastes and you should be able to get something to please everyone, e.g. salads, burgers or seafood. (The average cost of a meal is US$30). If you are more interested in quenching your thirst Kaibo also offers a variety of must have local cocktails such as the Mudslide or Mango Daiquiri which cost around US$12.
Deep Sea Fishing
Cayman is an excellent spot for deep sea fishing as the drop off that surrounds the island is home to pelagic species such as Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna and Marlin. We have the option of either staying close to the island and fish the drop off or, if weather conditions permit, we can venture out to the famous 12-Mile Bank. This method is mainly trolling and the guest can relax until the reel takes off.
This method we fish spinning light tackle trying to catch smaller species of fish such as the Mutton Snapper, Jacks and Triggerfish to name a few. This method is ideal for younger anglers.
Cayman offers a very unique dive experience where you dive along the top of the vertical drop off where it goes from around 80ft to 3,000ft. Then for your second dive we offer the shallow wall dive in around 40ft of water as we explore the crystal clear waters.
