I went with Martin and Dennis yesterday. I learned a great deal and had a fun experience. The time flew by as we were entertained and educated as we watched hounds of marine life of all kinds plus two shipwrecks. All fascinating.

We were in George Town with friends and relatives, some of whom were mobility-challenged. Since we couldn't go snorkeling, we decided to try the Seaworld Observatory to get a taste of snorkeling. The concept is better than a glass-bottomed boat, but not as good as...More

This is one of the less-intense water activities available in Grand Cayman and so is great for young children and older adults; we toured with our granddaughters (ages 5 and 7). However, it is necessary to descend a ladder so this tour is not suitable...More

I booked the morning (11a) excursion. Best to contact the service directly for full availability. They are located in the port where cruise boats are off-boarded so I suggest earlier before the tours fill up.

Good Morning, We generally schedule Seaworld tour departures at 11am, 12pm, and 1pm, and ask that guests check-in 15 minutes prior. The Cayman Islands sustained no damage. Winds were only around 20 mph.
