    OVERVIEW

    Sample some of Grand Cayman’s most characteristic rum, beer and cuisine and discover how they are produced using locally sourced ingredients. Rum has long been associated with the Caribbean as it is typically made with sugar or molasses, two products prevalent in the islands.

The island may be even more well-known for its cakes made with barrel-aged spiced rum, which you will enjoy during another sampling. An enlightening tour and tasting at a local brewery will reveal some of the tropical flavors such as mango that are used in the production of beer. Although jerk-style cooking may have originated in Jamaica, it has long been long popular on Grand Cayman. However, the spices can be somewhat different, which you will likely notice at yet another sampling.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Tour a rum distillery, a rum cake factory and a brewery on Grand Cayman.
    • Sample a variety of spirits, beers and the island’s signature rum cake.
    • Enjoy a tasting of jerk-style cuisine that is characteristic of the Cayman Islands.

    OVERVIEW

    Interact with southern stingrays on a shallow sandbar and observe an abundance of other marine life by snorkeling a barrier reef off Grand Cayman. A scenic cruise along beautiful Seven Mile Beach will bring you to Stingray City, a collection of sandbars teeming with stingrays. These graceful creatures may look somewhat ominous, but they are docile and shy, often burying most of their flat bodies in the sand. While swimming with the stingrays, you might feed them, run your hands over their sandpaper-like skin or simply allow them to brush by. The stingrays that inhabit this particular sandbar are quite friendly and accustomed to sharing the water with people. After cruising to a nearby reef, you will see many of the other marine creatures that live in the crystal-clear waters. Among the most colorful are queen parrotfish, red-and-white striped squirrelfish and silvery yellow French grunts, whose name refers to the noise they make by grinding their teeth.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit a series of shallow sandbars with so many stingrays that it’s called Stingray City.
    • Feed and touch the stingrays or simply watch them from a distance.
    • Snorkel a barrier reef and observe the other marine life that lives off Grand Cayman.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing with a swimsuit underneath.
    • Bring a towel and sunscreen.

The guide will describe how the caves were formed and the wonders that lie within them.

It commemorates the convoy 10 British ships that wrecked on the reefs just offshore in 1794 in a massive maritime disaster.

    OVERVIEW

After a briefing to ensure that you maximize the experience, you will ease into a two-seat kayak and follow the guide into the bay. The mangroves are protected because of their environmental benefits. You will notice that the exposed intertwined roots of the mangroves form a protective cage of sorts above the water, which provides an ideal breeding area for fish and other marine life. Mangroves also stabilize the coastline and filter the water, keeping it crystal-clear. It makes for a wonderfully serene setting.
