Enjoy a traditional marinated conch dish on the boat tour, where you will join the crew in diving up the huge conch shells from the ocean floor. The Captain and crew will demonstrate how to safely remove the conch from it’s beautiful natural shell and then have it prepared in their famous marinated sauce and finally devoured. It’s a delicious and awesome experience (only done during conch season: Nov 1st – April 30th). 

Their boats are spacious and comfortable with restrooms, sundeck and covered deck for shade. They offer snorkel gear, bottled water, fruit punch and other beverages on the boat. They also offer island tours as well as sea tours.

Opening at our poolside hut in September 2023, they will also rent jet skis, have banana boat rides, kayak rentals and so much more.

Cayman Island Watersports

Snorkel, scuba, sail, swim with dolphins or go deep-sea fishing when you stay at The Grand Caymanian Resort.  Book your next adventure with one of our trusted water sport vendors so you can enjoy all that our pristine Caribbean shores offer, all minutes away from our resort.

Stingray City

There’s a reason Stingray City remains one of our guests’ most popular attractions. You can’t resist the allure of feeding and swimming through a fever of peaceful, southern Atlantic stingrays. Connect with these majestic creatures in the shallow waters of Stingray City’s sandbars.

Deep-Sea Fishing

Take a breath of the warm Caribbean breeze and smell the salty sea air as you experience deep sea fishing unlike anywhere in the world. Master anglers will encounter mahi-mahi, barracuda, grouper, tuna, and others on the open Caribbean waters.
