Explore the tranquil beauty of Cayman’s ecologically sensitive coastal environments by kayak.

After a safety briefing and familiarization with the Kayaks in a shallow, protected area, you will set out on your expedition, exploring secluded shorelines, inlets, bird nesting areas, sea grass, and mangrove communities. Along the way, your guide will point out scenes of interest and describe the importance and interdependence of these fragile ecosystems with the surrounding coral reefs. You will also have the opportunity of getting in the water for a refreshing swim and snorkel around a healthy coral head. Snorkel equipment is provided at no extra charge. After returning to shore, the home journey takes you through one of Cayman’s most attractive residential communities.

Half Day Deep Sea Fishing
$325 per person
Depart Westin at 7:45 AM, Boat departs at 8 AM until 12 PM
The waters around Grand Cayman offer many types of fishing. Sunny Caribbean days, top quality vessels and captains who know where to find the biggest catch make fishing in Cayman a rewarding experience. Charters include crew, gear, tackle, and ice. Facilities include fighting chair, restrooms and partial shade on all boats. Although all fish caught belong to the captain, catch and release is the preferred method of fishing.
Land the big one! Seasonally caught species include Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin. Boats go no further than 12 miles offshore and lines are in the water 20 minutes after leaving the dock.
Half Day Scuba – 2 tank dive
$160 per person (includes equipment rental)
Depart Westin from the beach at 8 AM and return at 12 PM
Grand Cayman is known for its world class scuba diving and most notably for its shear drops known locally as the Cayman wall. The Island’s coral reefs surround the peak of an underwater mountain which drops off to the ocean floor thousands of feet beneath the surface. Hundreds of dive sites are located along the Cayman wall, the sheer vertical drop-off encircling the island. Our most popular dive sites are located on the West Wall just minutes from Seven Mile Beach. Conditions are typically excellent with water temperatures between 78 and 82 degrees year-round. Visibility ranges from 80 to 120 feet.
NOTE: All certified divers must present their certification cards prior to their dive and must have been diving within the past two years or complete a Refresher Course.
