What You Can Expect
As your captain maneuvers the Observatory to various locations, you'll view abundance of marine life and even a historic shipwreck, through large windows. Throughout your tour, a guide will provide an informative yet entertaining narration, in an interactive setting while answering any questions you may have.
The first site you visit is a dramatic shipwreck, the Cali, a steel schooner built in 1900. This ship ran aground 100 yards (90 meters) off the coast of Grand Cayman in 1944. From here, your captain takes you to Cheeseburger Reef. Be sure to have your cameras ready when our diver enters the water and begins to feed the hundreds of multi-colored tropical fish right in front of your window!
Hear more tales of the high seas as the Seaworld Explorer takes you to see the wreck of the Balboa. The Balboa is a 375 foot (115 meter) freighter which traveled from Cayman to Cuba when she encountered one of the worst hurricanes in the island's history on 10 November, 1932. The ship was literally broken into pieces by huge waves as she was bounced along the ocean floor. Much of her cargo of wood was used to reconstruct the buildings seen in George Town today.
The Seaworld Explorer then brings you back to the dock in the heart of George Town where you'll disembark.
Nice cruise, good guide, wonderful reefs! View of sunken ship amazing, also really enjoyed the diver feeding the fish!
Excellent. Great views from all windows. The fish feeding was a frenzy of activity and the diver was completely covered with fish to where you could hardly see him.
My wife and I thought it was a good thing to do, and we would recommend this to others if we know that they are coming to your area.
The crew were great!
it wa very intersting and eduacational. Diver feeding he fish fun to see and the fish loved him.
Amazing views of coral reefs, sunken ship wrecks and fish.
This was a rather short trip. I was expecting more bit I did enjoy the show. The narrator made it fun. Maybe I chose the wrong day to go as the cruise ship was intown. I would recommend to fellow travellers.
