Swimming with stingrays

A cruise in the Caribbean cannot be without a short stop at Grand Cayman, the largest of the three islands. Fortunately there are no caimans on the island… heheh. You know what that is right? Anyway, it’s safe so we’ll recommend that you go.

For though the islands are known to be a tax haven full of foreign corporations parking their money there or operating shell holding companies, it isn’t entirely just the playground for the rich and famous… well quite some of it is, but not everything.

We were out on an excursion that we got for free as part of our booking of the Caribbean cruise that brought us here. Not operated by the cruise line meant we had to get ashore on our own and look for the representative of the tour. Let us tell you that we only had 8 hours on the island. And we had the tour at 1030am. Guess what? Because it was so busy, the tenders taking us ashore only cleared the crowds and took us to the island around 11am.

Great stuff.

Now we had to take the next tour at 1230pm and ensure we get back to the harbour before the last tender at 5pm. If it did not make things worse, there were 20 other cruise ships with attendant number of passengers waiting at the tiny harbour.

It was almost running the gauntlet to get back on the boat ship. Did we get back in time? Read all about our adventure here. Wouldn’t you like to swim with stingrays too?

  1. I’d love to visit the Grand Cayman. My college best friend used to live there.
    Unfortunately, I won’t be swimming at all as I can’t swim. I don’t feel I’m losing out because I get cold quickly. But, it will be nice to know how to swim. 😅
