Default Grand Cayman

My wife and I will be in Grand Cayman November 7 - 16. Looking for recommendations for offshore fishing and possibly snorkeling as well. Just the 2 of us, 1/2 or full day.

Thanks

Snorkelling and diving you can use just about any Dive Op on island they are all good.

I own on Island so if you have any questions feel to PM me.

I don't fish there just dive so can't help with fishing just be aware that if you shore fish you are NOT allowed to keep anything catch and release only.

Where are you staying ?

Default Lobster Pot

We have dove in the Caymans for several years now and we have always used Lobster Pot Dive Center. They are great on customer service and work with all skill levels. That said, there are several areas that you can snorkel or scuba dive directly from shore. Best example is Eden Rock Dive Center. You can rent a locker and swim right our from shore and snorkel etc. There are a million places to dive, but those are my two favorites.

Staying at the Westin for 2 nights then moving to Seven Mile Beach Club timeshare for 7 nights. I am not certified for diving so fishing and snorkeling will be my focus. We would like to do full day charter including fishing and snorkeling. We will also probably do some snorkeling from the shore and a snorkel tour boat as well.

If you do "Stingray City" go on a day with no cruise ships in if possible.

Try to stay out of Georgetown on cruise ship days until around 4 PM when they have to be back to the ship

Here is the cruise ship schedules

Good snorkeling at Macabucca at the North end of 7 Mile beach

Thanks for the information, I'll avoid the cruise ship crowd.

If your going yo be on 7 mile beach you are in luck for snorkeling. It is the best on the island from shore. You can rent gear for the week right on the beach and it is a short swim to the reefs. You will be quite impressed with the marine life. If you want a real treat bring a can of Cheese Wizz with you. Stingrays city is a must. Also dive the wall in the sub if you have time

If you have a vehicle, there was good snorkeling around Rum Point. The people numbers were much lower than 7MB and you can hit Starfish Point while there plus the blow holes on the other end of the island.

It is wort a trip out to a stingray City and the snorkeling spots around it. We used Red Sail Sports while there for two separate trips and enjoyed them.

If you have a vehicle you could also hit Spots Beach on the way to the East side of the island. There are usually quite a few juvenile sea turtles feeding on the grass about 30 yards off the beach. It is a small local beach and was pretty quiet each time we went there.
