 GCA30 - Reef & Wreck Snorkel & Tiki Beach (4.5 hrs) - Georgetown, Cayman Islands
  Not one, but two of the Cayman Island’s most popular snorkelling sites are yours to enjoy on this gentle activity tour, whose first stop is at the wreck of the Cali. Having now lain underwater at a depth of about 15 feet for 40 years, the wreck has provided a suitable superstructure for an abundant growth of coral and its concomitant marine wildlife, including moray eels, lobsters and sea turtles. Leaving the wreck behind, you will then head for the second snorkelling site: the so-called Cheeseburger Reef, so named only because it lies right in front of a Burger King outlet! This superb snorkelling location reveals its special splendour at a depth of about 25 feet, where the coral reef system supports a huge variety of marine life. The last stop on the tour will then be Tiki Beach – part of Seven Mile Beach – to enjoy the facilities and simply relax. Use of a lounge chair, changing rooms and freshwater showers as well as a welcoming glass of punch (either with or without alcohol) are included in the price of the tour.

 GCA32 - Island Tour & Tiki Beach Combo (4 hrs) - Georgetown, Cayman Islands
  When you tell your friends and family about this excursion on your return back home, you will rightfully be able to claim that it took you to Hell and back. But as Hell is only the name of a town on Grand Cayman, there’s no need for undue concern. After leaving the pier, an air-conditioned coach will take you through George Town and up the western coastline, past the white powdery sands of Seven Mile Beach, the Governor’s Mansion and the quaint architecture of a historical Caymanian home before reaching Turtle Farm. Green and hawksbill turtles are bred and raised at this sea turtle nursery every year, with many later being released back into the wild. The tour then continued on up to the northwest of the island and the already mentioned town of Hell, which is named after an unusual rock formation. Postcards mailed from here are sure to raise a smile at home since each will be postmarked: “Mailed from Hell”. After your return to George Town, a further transfer will take you to Tiki Beach where you can enjoy the facilities, kick back and simply relax. Use of a lounge chair, changing rooms, toilets and freshwater showers as well as a welcoming glass of punch (either with or without alcohol) are included in the price of the tour. But more active pursuits are also on offer at an additional charge, with kayaking, jet skiing and parasailing just three examples. Tiki Beach also features full bar service and an à-la-carte restaurant at additional cost. Please note: guests under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Additional water sports activities are offered at the beach, the cost of which is not included in the price of the tour; guests taking part in such activities do so entirely at their own risk.
