A January 2003 trip
to Cayman Islands by lawyerjay
Quote: For a quiet, relaxing week with sand, surf and sun, Grand Cayman is an ideal location to unwind. Island is small enough to explore by car and not feel rushed. Just enough sights to keep you busy without feeling as if you will miss something.
The beach was beautiful - one of the nicest on the island. It is easy to have a full week at the resort without leaving. There are activities during the day and night with theme dinners. Great snorkeling right off the beach under the dock.

Almost all operators go to Coral Gardens, Barrier Reef, and Sting Ray sand bar. These three stops should not be missed. Barrier reef is an exquisite snorkeling site. At Sting Ray sand bar, water is three to four feet deep, and sting rays swarm all around while you feed them squid.
All tours will cover these stops, but Captain Marvin's was a small trip (less than 20 people), and this is important. Many operators had 50+ people on their boats. At Barrier reef, captain went into water and coaxed a moray eel out of the coral for all to see. He could not do this with 50+ people on boat. The only drawback, from someone who loves snorkeling, is that the trip was too short.
