Grand Cayman Shore Excursion: West Bay Sightseeing Tour

West Bay Sightseeing Tour

A brief stop is made at the Governor's Residence, located on Seven Mile Beach and one of the world's most spectacular, before continuing on to visit the world's only green sea turtle farm. Your experienced guides will explain everything - from the tiny hatchlings to the big breeders swimming in their lagoons. You can even pick up a turtle for a photograph!

Your next stop is a visit to 'Hell', so named for its unusual rock formations. At sunset when the orange sun reflects off the water collected in the pools, it resembles burning hellfire. This is a favorite stop to mail postcards and have them postmarked from 'Hell'! Depart for the Tortuga Rum Shoppe and experience a taste of the Caribbean's original world famous rum cakes and Tortuga duty free liquors.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to Georgetown for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

excellent! Guide was very informative, showed us unplanned sights along the way, and gave us historical background of cayman islands. Also provided insight as to the contributions of private investors in Cayman infrastructure,

The tour lived up to our expectation. We saved money by not booking similar tour through the cruise ship. The guide adjusted the tour for the rum cake stop to avoid a large crowd from other tour groups. The only problem was that the tour guide did not come to the cruise ship terminal with an identifying sign. The guide was just looking around for people who had booked the tour. A guide from another tour company had told me to look for a person in a yellow shirt. I spotted the guide as he was working back to his bus.

Excellent tour, the guide took extra time to answer everyone's questions and stopped to permit photos as other tour busses cruised past us. The turtles are a must see and learn about. The guide assisted each person with holding the turtles and took pictures so all family members were in a single photo.

Everything was great. The driver took the time to give us more time at stops and was very informative. Well worth, the time and money.

Excellent tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2012

Though they ran a bit late showing up and making us question whether the tour was on or not, when they finally did show up, the excursion was superb! Our guide was very informative and gave us a lot of good laughs, making the tour very enjoyable and worthwhile! Having been to GCayman before, we opted to try something different (the Turtle Farm) and we were very happy with the choice. If you are a first timer to GCayman, we would still suggest going to Stingray City/snorkeling, above all excursions! But if you can't do that one, this is a recommended one, by us!

I recently went to Grand Cayman as part of a cruise. I would like to say that this tour was the best of the tours we did during the cruise. The bus came to pick us up and was very much on time. The tour itself was extremely informative and we were able to see so much, it was worth every dime. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to the island.
