Free transportation from the 7 mile beach area and the cruise ship port.  The boat is located in the newly renovated Cayman Islands Yacht Club where you'll depart from, once you arrive your captain will give you a safety briefing and you can decide what stops you want to do first.  He'll have you sign a liability wavier and you'll be on your way out to the north sound (bay area) which is protected by the barrier reef where you'll do all your activities.  On your way out your captain will tell you about the island and its history.  At each stop you'll be briefed before entering the water to ensure everyone is comfortable and aware of their surroundings.
Your stops will include: the infamous Stingray City, a must do for anyone visiting Grand Cayman and it is the ideal interaction for all ages. In our small and private group, you will have the opportunity of a lifetime to see our friendly stingrays.
Coral Gardens, a great spot for the average snorkeler. The water is about 8-10 feet where you’ll have a memorable experience surrounded by many tropical fish, maybe catch a glimpse of a moray eel and even a Cayman lobster, who all flourish in the variety of colorful coral life!
Starfish beach, a quiet and relaxing spot great for both kids and adults and is approx. 10 mins boat ride from Stingray City. This is one of the most requested tours offered. You’ll have the chance to walk on the shoreline and be captivated by the red and orange starfish which makes taking a photo extra special!
Your boat will be a Chaparral 274 sunesta which can seat up 11 guests comfortably with its newly redone seats.  Your boat will be equipped with snorkeling equipment and life vest for everyone, the boat also has a custom heavy duty ladder which makes in and out the water very easy, there is also a restroom on board as well as a cooler with ice, water and sodas.  You are also welcome to bring along your own drinks or food.

Our captain Jason was wonderful as was Jerome his assistant! We had a great afternoon out on the boat and will definitely book them again the next time we come to Grand Cayman!
Best Day in Cayman

A true custom day - not our first boat rental in the area but by far the best. We're a small family of 3 and we go all the snorkeling, stingrays, starfish and run point in that is needed when in GC!

After a fantastic experience last year, this was our second time to take the same half day tour with Island Splash Watersports. However, this time we had my senior citizen parents who have some mobility issues. Not a problem for this team lead by Jason who made sure that everything was prepared ahead of time. We knew that Jerome would be the perfect boat captain because he is always so friendly and willing to customize the experience. At both Stingray City and Starfish Point, Jerome patiently helped us get my mother off the boat and even picked her up back onto the boat both times! She loved the experience and having a guide like Jerome who knows the stingrays by name and fun off the map places to snorkel was great . We would recommend this to anyone with senior adults just give Jason a heads up to have Jerome as the captain!
Awesome Experience! Great Service! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Our family of 8 had high expectations but Jason went over the top with our service to make this one of our best experiences for us and the kids. We noticed some of the other boats packed with lots of people but ours was a nice, clean smaller boat but perfect for a private family of 8. We were a bit nervous due to not booking thru Carnival but everything was really smooth from the private bus ride to the yacht club to the whole boat experience. The private experience is the best and will be hard for us to go back to big group excursions which at the end turn out a bit disappointing. Our family highly recommends this experience. Thanks Jason! 👍🏼👍🏼👌🏼
Should be 10 stars!

If you are going to do anything in the Cayman's, you NEED to book this tour!! There were 6 of us that had plenty of room, the boat was super clean, they provided water but most importantly the most personalized tour of the island. We jumped from Stingray City, to a quick drink in Rum Point, to the best snorkeling we have ever seen, to starfish bay, and a dance party on the way back. They let you play your own music, are knowledgeable about the island, and SO friendly. It felt like we were touring with a lifelong friend. You HAVE to do this tour!! It was AMAZING and we are definitely going to book it again when we return!
Fantastic time

Jerome was the best. I think this might have been the highlight of our trip. Jerome made it extra special.

Very sadly our excursion had to be cancelled due to our cruise ship not stopping in Grand Cayman due to large wave swells. We were very saddened to not be able to attend. The company went above and beyond and were very helpful and kind to arrange a refund since it was due to things out of our control. Will definitely do this excursion when we return to Grand Cayman. Very professional and kind people.
OMG SPECTACULAR

Jerome and Jason made our 1/2 day excursion the best part of our cruise vacation, complete with fresh coconut water. The best snorkeling we've ever experienced. Very professional young men, and very accommodating to our skill levels. We highly recommend this tour!!!
A must do on everyone's vacation to the Cayman

This was one of my favorite experiences of all times! Jason, our tour guide, was waiting for us at the dock. We then boated over to Stingray City and held and fed stingrays. We then boated over to an area full of fish to snorkel. During the snorkeling experience, we even saw a Moray Eel. Snorkeling equipment was provided if needed. After snorkeling, we went to Starfish beach. Jason went out and found us 6 starfish to hold as there were none in the shallow water. Jason was an amazing tour guide and our group of 8 made memories on this trip that will last a lifetime. I recommend anyone that visits the Caymans take this tour.
Great experience - highly recommended

Jason and Arrow were great operators and took us to Stingray City and Starfish Beach. The great thing about a private trip is that you can spend more or less time at the locations of your choice compared to the bigger group tours. We'd highly recommend this private tour to anyone looking to see some great highlights on their Cayman Islands trip!
