What You Can Expect

Grand Cayman Shore Excursion: West Bay Tour by Land Rover

Try rum cake on this shore excursion!

After port pickup in George Town, climb aboard an open-air Land Rover for your 4x4 tour of western Grand Cayman. Nearing West Bay, rumble along a deserted expanse of shoreline bordered on one side by the sparkling Caribbean Sea and by thick mangroves on the other. Listen as your guide explains features of Barker’s National Park, which encompasses a 100-acre (40-hectare) nature preserve.


Then head straight to Hell — a small coastal town where you can send mail postmarked with the curious town name. Disembark your vehicle at a viewing platform to observe the black limestone rock for which the town was named. 


After learning about the geological formations, continue on by Land Rover to the Tortuga Rum Cake Factory for a delectable tasting of this Caribbean specialty. See rum cakes being glazed by hand with oak-barrel-aged Tortuga Gold Rum, then sample uniquely flavored rum cake — including Blue Mountain coffee, coconut and key lime — available to purchase and take back with you to the ship.


Next up is a sea turtle research and conservation center: Cayman Turtle Farm. Learn how the turtle meat industry of the 17th and 18th centuries led to the development of the Cayman Islands. Marvel at 500-lb (226-kg) green sea turtles and get a chance to hold a yearling at the Turtle Touch Tank.


Finally, enjoy one last ride in the Land Rover back to the George Town port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

Wonderful tour! Well worth the money. We were visiting Grand Cayman for one day as part of a Disney Cruise. Our guide Brian found us right away when we arrived off the ship. He was very informative and friendly. We are a family of five with three daughters: 12, 9, and 6. Their favorite part was the turtle farm! We wish we had more time so Brian could have given us a tour of the East Side of the Island. I guess their is always next time! It was so nice to get away from the crowds of people and have a private tour. We highly recommend it!

Our guide, Brian, arrived promptly at the designated time and proceeded to give an excellent tour. We did have the advantage of being the only ones on the tour so effectively had a personal experience so we were not rushed.

We could have organised a very similar trip from the crusie liner at twice the cost and would have spent less time at each stop, so all-in-all a good decision to use Viator and would definately look at future shore excursions through them.

We booked the tour through Viator because we did not want to send money to the tour operator directly. We had emailed the tour operator before booking with Viator, but did not get any response from tour operator. After we booked with Viator, we were told by Viator that the tour operator could not confirm the tour. Viator told us to contact the tour operator directly to check on our reservation. The tour operator never returned our emails. We emailed them 3 times before and during the cruise. We waited at the port for about an hour and did not find anyone from the company. Viator was wonderful The promptly returned out money. Thank you Viator for watching out for us. That is why we booked through Viator.
