How To Prepare For A Cayman Spirits Co. Distillery Tour

Rum is the staple spirit of the Caribbean. Whether the brown or clear liquor is one of your favorites or you simply want to learn more about the history of Caribbean Rum, the Cayman Spirits Co. has what you are looking for. The operational craft distillery company offers several tour options, including those featuring Georgetown-area shopping so you can make libation-inspired purchases. If a distillery tour is a Grand Cayman must for you, use these tips to ensure the experience is everything you hoped for:

Get A Good Night’s Sleep

The effects of alcohol are always more severe when you don’t sleep well the night before. Get seven to eight hours of restful sleep the night before your tour to arrive refreshed and ready to learn all about the titular spirit. Being well-rested also helps you feel energized and alert instead of groggy, irritable, and unable to concentrate.

Eat A Hearty Breakfast

Much like lack of sleep, an empty stomach allows alcohol to hit you sooner. Rather than feeling loopy too early in the day, enjoy a good breakfast so you aren’t hungry when you arrive at the distillery. Consume foods rich in fiber and protein that take longer to digest and keep you satiated so you can try scotch bonnet rum, Seven Fathoms Rum (the national rum of the islands), and local botanical gins among other spirits without getting too intoxicated.

Bring Sun Protection

Drinking in the tropical sun is a surefire ticket to Drunkville, so take steps to protect yourself from UV rays. In addition to wearing plenty of sunblock, consider investing in a wide-brimmed hat and staying in the shade as often as possible. The less sun exposure you get, the more you will be able to fully enjoy your distillery experience.

Stay Hydrated

Alcohol dehydrates the body, which is one of the reasons you get drunk and feel terrible the next day. Sip water as you take this tour to not only stay hydrated and healthy but to dilute the alcohol. Doing so means you retain fewer calories. Alcohol promotes weight gain because the body recognizes it as a toxin, causing your metabolism to stop while your organs try to get rid of the libation as quickly as possible. Water helps you avoid empty calorie-related weight gain.

What To Expect During A Cayman Island Cave Tour

Grand Cayman offers plenty of fantastic ways to fill your days, including a wide variety of natural attractions that leave you in awe. Among these many attractions is the Cayman Crystal Caves, a stunning natural wonder that formed over millions of years. If planning a visit to this stalactite and stalagmite attraction is on your Grand Cayman to-do list, here’s what you need to know before you enter:

Look But Don’t Touch

When entering the Cayman Crystal Caves or any other stalactite and stalagmite cave, you can look but you absolutely cannot touch anything. The oils on your skin have a damaging effect on the minerals, resulting in degradation that affects the cave’s appearance and quality. Stay in your tour group’s line and maintain a healthy distance from all cave structures when taking photos.

Prepare For A Slight Chill

Since caves are under the ground, they are naturally cooler than the surface temperature. And while Cayman Crystal Caves has open-air sections and therefore access to tropical breezes, it is still a good idea to bring a hoodie or sweatshirt with you to avoid feeling cold when you should be enjoying the stunning surroundings.

Know How Long Your Tour Lasts

Check the timeframe for your guided tour, as it will last an hour and a half. In addition to taking a 45-minute walk through the three main caves, including the glittering lake cave and the roots cave, you will enjoy a 30-minute natural walk through the magical tropical forest that created the caves so long ago. Since you will walk for an hour and a half, use the facilities before you enter and ensure you have all of your belongings with you, including your phone or camera.

The tour also includes 15 minutes of free time for enjoying the viewing deck and purchasing something to eat from the snack shop, which is also the gift shop.

Book Before You Arrive In Grand Cayman

Reserve your tour instead of trying to get in the day of. All tours with Cayman Crystal Caves require pre-booking; however, tours are available every day all year long so you shouldn’t have too much trouble. Tour times start at 9 am, with the last one beginning at 4 pm. You may want to see what other attractions are nearby when planning your itinerary.

This establishment requires reservations, so make yours now and avoid missing any of the glammed-out action.

Friday On The Patio

Since live music events are a Grand Cayman staple, there’s no need to worry if your travel plans don’t include the last Friday of the month. There’s still plenty of music to dance to and enjoy. Friday on the Patio at Royal Palms happens at the end of every workday so you can start your weekend off right. DJs spin at the hotel’s fabulous patio from 5 pm to 2 am, playing the island’s best house beats. Beer and wine specials are included so you don’t have to miss happy hour if you want to dance.

If hitting up both establishments sounds like the perfect Friday to you, they are conveniently located on West Bay Road in Grand Cayman. That’s one of the many great things about our island paradise–you never have to walk far to find something fantastic to do.

3 Brunch Options For Your September Visit To Grand Cayman

There’s no visiting Grand Cayman without experiencing at least one of the fabulous brunch options. Our island paradise impresses locals and visitors alike in a wide variety of ways, and brunch events are no exception. The Boulangerie Brunch at the Anchor & Den in the Marriott Beach Resort is one such event that never fails to satisfy, as well as the event that happens every Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton.

Boulangerie Brunch, Anchor & Den

Happening every Sunday at the Anchor & Den on West Bay Road from 12 pm to 2 pm, Boulangerie Brunch features a tantalizing selection of European cheeses you won’t find stateside, as well as homemade pastries offering that extra sweetness often necessary on Sunday morning. An extra-fat pretzel or side of ice cream, anyone? There are also bottomless glasses of De Chanceny’s Cremant de Loire to make it a true brunch experience.

Champagne Brunch At The Ritz Carlton

The glitz and glamour of the Ritz Carlton combine with traditional Grand Cayman breakfast foods to create this brunch option. The Moët & Chandon flows as the amazing seafood display provides plenty of delicious possibilities for your plate. And because this brunch is all about traditional Caribbean food, you can expect a bit of spice with every dish. Like the Boulangerie Brunch, this weekly event happens from 12 pm to 3 pm on West Bay Road via Seven Mile Beach.

LUCA Sunday Brunch

If socializing is your favorite thing about brunch, the one happening at LUCA at the Caribbean Club Hotel offers exactly what you want. Dine al fresco as you mingle with new friends and fellow travelers alike, swapping stories and enjoying the free-flowing prosecco. And since LUCA is a contemporary Italian restaurant, you can expect brunch cuisine with similar flare. Doors open at 11:30 am and stay open until 2:30 pm. LUCA is also located on a wondrous stretch of Seven Mile Beach to help you truly enjoy island life.

Brunch Prices

Reservations are recommended no matter which brunch option you select, with prices varying by the establishment.

6 Tips For Avoiding Seasickness On Your Upcoming Sailing Excursion

Sailing is among the many fabulous experiences to enjoy during your Grand Cayman stay. Not only do you feel the sea breeze on your face as you glide effortlessly through the water, but you also enjoy stunning views of the coastline and may get glimpses of assorted marine friends. If you are prone to motion sickness but still can’t wait to step aboard, use these tips to keep seasickness out of the equation:

Don’t Drink The Night Before

Avoid drinking alcohol the night before your sailing adventure, or at least keep the libations to a minimum and drink lots of water. Alcohol dehydrates you to increase your risk of seasickness, especially if you have had motion sickness issues in the past. Hangover symptoms such as head pain and nausea also make seasickness significantly worse.

Avoid Heavy Foods

Consume simple foods in the hours before you sail such as oatmeal, cereal, and other bland options. Abstain from greasy, heavy, spicy, or acidic foods that can upset the stomach and make you feel nauseous. Acidic beverages should be avoided for the same reasons.

Keep Ginger Ale Within Reach

Maintain a calm stomach by sipping ginger ale, a known motion sickness soother. Peppermint and other mint products also calm the stomach so you revel in the experience instead of hanging over the edge feeling sick.

Breathe Fresh Air

Avoid noxious exhaust odors while sailing and focus on breathing fresh air, especially if you don’t feel well. Look towards the horizon so your eyes “see” the motion of the boat and send the right signals to inner ears and subsequently your brain. Take deep breaths to calm your body and prevent vomiting.

Get A Good Night’s Sleep

Rest well the night before your sailing excursion, since feeling tired and anxious can aggravate seasickness symptoms. This is another reason to avoid alcohol since the liquid interferes with a good night’s sleep in addition to making you feel bad in the morning.

Don’t Stare

Avoid staring at walls, decor pieces, and anything onboard your eyes and brain normally recognize as motionless. Look around instead of fixating on anything for any length of time to keep your eyes, inner ears, and brain in harmony.

If you are still looking for the right resort to get the most out of your Grand Cayman vacation, visit South Beach Bay Club today.

Why Stingray City Sandbars Are A Grand Cayman Must

As you are planning your Grand Cayman itinerary, consider adding Stingray City Sandbar to the list. There are actually two famous sandbars surrounded by crystal-clear tropical waters off Grand Cayman, both of which provide adventures you and your fellow travel buddies will always remember. Take a moment to learn what makes Stingray City so special before exploring tour options.

A Quick History

Once upon a time, it was common for fishermen returning home for the day to anchor their boats in North Sound to clean their catch. The shallow, well-protected area located behind Barrier Reef avoided the splash and crash of waves, and soon a second area became a popular fisherman spot. Stingrays started gathering in the shallows to feast on the fish bits the men threw back into the water, which became a late afternoon ritual that went on for years. In 1981 a couple of dive instructors decided to pay the rays a visit. They brought cameras and lots of squid parts with them and found the rays to be shy and in no way aggressive.

By 1986 one of the instructors penned an article called “The Valley of the Rays,” which then became known as Stingray City. It also got the moniker ‘Stingray City Sandbar,’ and became one of Grand Cayman’s most popular snorkeling and scuba diving sites.

Typical Stingray City Sandbar Trips

If visiting these gentle giants sounds intriguing, there are many tour options to select from. “Breakfast” tours in the mornings are available, as are all-day trips. Day-long trips usually include visits to some of Grand Cayman’s most famous attractions in addition to Stingray City, such as the famous and beautiful Rum Point Beach. Depending on what tour you select, you will enjoy activities such as stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling, and kayaking. Drinks and food are also available on board your chosen caterman. Some include access to a fully-stocked bar.

These tours allow you to interact with the curious and playful rays that are adorably known as the “puppies of the sea.” Feed and pet them–they love it as much as you will!

Is a tour of Stingray City a Grand Cayman must? South Beach Bay Club recommends tours through Red Sail Sports, the tourism company that has kept the adventure going since 1987. Contact South Beach Bay Club today to make your resort reservation and learn more about Red Sail Sports.

To Hell And Back: Why This Devilish Detour Is A Must-Do On Your Cayman Vacation

Yes, you read all of that correctly. Who would have thought that in a location as heavenly as the Cayman Islands, there’d be an opportunity to visit Hell.
Protruding out of its lush surroundings of the West Bay is a formation of black and jagged limestone known to the locals as Hell. With a 24-million year history, this wicked fossil coral reef, also known as Ironshore, is certainly unique.
Folklore about the origins of Hell’s name is varied and unverified. Some locals say the dark, eerie and spiky landscape created by the limestone resembles what they imagine Hell might look like. Others think it was simply because a British general exclaimed “oh hell!” while unsuccessfully attempting to hunt birds in the area.
Regardless of Hell’s creation story, it still manages to create a silly, educational, family-friendly experience for all.
Over the years, Hell has attracted large numbers of tourists leading to more and more novelty experiences popping up around the limestone attraction. Club Inferno is the area’s go-to for local drinks and dancing. There’s a gift shop painted with flames and littered with playfully devil-dressed men. And if you find yourself missing home, you can let friends and family know you wish they were in Hell with you by sending some postcards from the local post office. The lines aren’t as bad as you’d expect.
The highway to Hell is a simple street named… you guessed it… Hell Road. Between Fountain and Miss Daisy Lane, you’ll find Hell’s gift shop and post office. Just keep in mind: While it’s rare to experience a cold day in Hell, the area does tend to get a little extra toasty in the summer, so make sure you’re up for it and bring lots of water to stay hydrated.
No doubt Grand Cayman is best known for its clear waters best suited for diving and fishing, and sand suitable for all-day worship, but taking some time to explore the quirkier offerings can help make this vacation stand out from other island getaways. If you feel the need to repent for all the “see you in Hell” postcards you’ll be sending loved ones, don’t fret. Hell does have its own church.
While there’s still much to learn about it, there’s one thing about Hell we know for sure- whether you’re intrigued by unique rock formations, strange landscapes, sinister novelty experiences, or puns related to eternal damnation (and who doesn’t?), Hell Grand Cayman has something for you.

5 Things To Pack For Your Grand Cayman Trip

Your visit to Grand Cayman will be filled with wild sea adventures and unique, unforgettable experiences. Making sure you have everything you need to enjoy the moments and capture the excitement can help make your trip more satisfying all around. Here are some things to make sure to bring along for the ride:
1. Your Camera
From swimming with stingrays to snorkeling through the coral reefs, exploring novelty shops and picnicking with a movie under the stars, you’ll want to capture it all. Consider a waterproof case for your phone or camera so you can take big risks for the great family shot. UV protector filters for camera lenses might help, too.
2. Summer-Friendly Clothes
Let your skin breathe in the humid summer days with light and flowy tanks and shorts. And of course, don’t forget your swimsuit! The island style is relaxed and somewhat conservative. Some might call it “smart-casual” so it’s often best to keep beachwear at the beach and bring some breathable pants for nights out on the town. A jacket or sweatshirt could be helpful for evening layering if the air gets a little chilly.
3. Comfortable Shoes
Whether you’re roaming the shops or crashing on the sun-drenched sand, you’ll likely be seeking comfort. After all, this is your vacation. There aren’t many nature trails or hikes on the islands so don’t worry so much about sneakers. Comfortable sandals should do the trick and maybe a pair of dressier shoes for nights out at the local watering hole.
4. Sun Protection and Insect Repellent
From sunglasses to sunscreen, you’ll want to make sure you and the kiddos have all bases covered. It might also be worth considering some protective sun shirts for your time in the water, especially if you’ll be out on long adventures snorkeling the coral reef. Insect repellent is also a wise choice to toss in the suitcase to make your tropical nights a little less itchy.
5. Your Travel Essentials
Passports, photo IDs, plane tickets, hotel reservations. Be sure to bring these and perhaps some extra copies just in case things get wet or wild. Don’t forget to keep these items safe throughout your travel. Additional essentials for a tropical vacation can include protective phone or camera cases which are a worthy investment, too. Ensure your digital gadgets don’t get damaged by the sun, salt, and humidity. Major credit cards are accepted on the islands but keeping small bills around can make shopping with local vendors or tipping servers easier.
So now that you’ve got your bags packed, when do we leave?

Celebrate Constitution Day This July With Caymanian Culture And History

Canada, France, and the U.S. all celebrate patriotic holidays in the month of July. And the Cayman Islands are no exception. Each year, on the first Monday of July, locals and visitors alike celebrate Constitution Day, a public holiday commemorating the islands’ first constitution which passed 60 years ago in 1959.
This year’s events will take place on July 1st and you can expect the entertainment to be fun for the whole family. Enjoy live music, food and drink vendors, or win prizes at crowd-favorite festival games. Kids can express themselves with arts and crafts projects or get their faces painted, and the whole family can enjoy the fireworks show which kicks off at 8:30 pm.
Here’s a little background on the festivities and what, exactly, is being celebrated:
History
The Cayman Islands have been governed by the British government since the 17th century and become a colony of Jamaica in 1863. However, when Jamaica declared independence from Britain in 1952, the Cayman Islands declared a desire to remain part of the British Empire instead. Their new constitution enacted that, and also gave Caymanian women the right to vote. So there’s a lot to celebrate this July and you can do so under sun and by the sea at Camana Bay’s Constitution Day celebration.
Culture
Celebrating Constitution Day will let you experience and celebrate rich Caymanian culture. Similar to Jamaican food, Caymanian food includes seafood like mahi-mahi and snapper, veggies, and tasty spices. Conch with lime juice or cooked in a chowder is a very popular.
Caymanian folk music, calypso, jazz, and reggae will also be on full display for family fun and dancing.
Shopping
Before the events kick off, Camana Bay offers shops and dining opportunities that are sure to get the fun started early. 3 Girls and a Kiln, for instance, is a local art collective offering ceramics, paintings, and upcycled repurposed gifts. Activ Angels is a one-stop shop for the active lifestyle, offering yoga apparel and accessories as well as athleisure. And the Bay Market offers gourmet organic, vegetarian, and vegan items, including produce and pantry essentials. And that’s just to name a few.
Camana Bay’s diverse selection of restaurants can satiate any shopper’s hunger, fueling you up to keep the souvenir scouting and shopping spree going.
Event Details
At the Camana Bay Crescent, expect to dance along to a life DJ from 6:30-9:30 pm and don’t forget to catch the fireworks show starting at 8:30 pm.

Don’t Miss 2019’s Summer Moonlight & Movies

While catching a flick may not seem like the ideal activity for a visit to Grand Cayman, this annual outdoor event provides a chance for families to wind down after warm and adventurous days. With ample time to bond and relax under the Cayman moonlight, this event is just the recharge needed for another day of island exploration.
Camana Bay’s annual Summer Moonlight & Movies event is back every Tuesday night throughout June, July, and August. It’s your chance to gather with family and other neighbors of the Cayman community to unwind under the stars with a fun, kid-friendly flick.

Other films you can catch before fall include animated adventure-comedy Puss in Boots, stop-motion fantasy comedy The Boxtrolls, Steve Carrell’s and Wanda Sykes’ comic-inspired Over the Hedge, and 1980s classic Back to the Future. All films are rated PG-13 or under making this stress-free night fit for almost everyone.
For extra fun, on the first Tuesday of each month bring the kids early for a Kiddie Drive-In. Children can create and customize their own cardboard car and park it in front of the big screen for a unique experience. These cardboard car crafts start at 5 pm with all supplies provided giving the kid’s a unique and classic movie-viewing adventure.
Before the show, families are encouraged to dine at Camana Bay’s diverse restaurants which offer up options such as tapas, pizza, Asian-inspired dishes, organic and vegan items, and other gourmet delights. For the grown-ups, craft beers and cocktails are available at many dining locations. And don’t forget to stop for some gelato or French pastries for dessert. Movie-goers looking for a cozier evening are also invited to bring their own picnic to munch throughout the show.
The event’s organizer, Rosa DaCosta, urges folks to join in on the fun, saying “it’s a great opportunity for the community to come to Camana Bay, the restaurants are quite busy, it brings people here to Camana Bay where it’s a safe place to be.”
Be sure to arrive early with your blankets to grab a comfy spot on the lawn as seating is first-come, first-serve. On a quiet Tuesday around the island, this free event is sure to fill up quickly.
And don’t stray too far at summer’s end. Special film screenings will kick back into gear for Halloween and Christmas.

5 Incredible Scuba Diving Sites Off Grand Cayman

As you plan your vacation to Grand Cayman, consider adding scuba diving to your itinerary. The tropical island paradise features some of the best scuba diving sites in the world, all of which include plenty of colorful fish and other marine creatures. Review these exquisite sites to inspire your travel plans and get seriously excited.

Eden Rock North

This site is a favorite among snorkelers on cruise ships. It is a shallow reef dropping 45 feet into the sea and features tons of gorgeous coral you won’t want to stop taking pictures of. The tarpon in this area is particularly noteworthy, and don’t worry–they will just float along without noticing you at all.

Ironshore Gardens

If dense sea life is a scuba diving must for you, visit Ironshore Gardens. This underwater “garden” located on the east end of Grand Cayman in Frank Sound allows you to wind through a stunning maze of coral walls. You may also see some of the biggest lobsters in this section of clear ocean water.

The Kittiwake

The Kittiwake is a hulking submarine purposefully sunk in 2011 to create an artificial reef. Today the 251-foot-long vessel located about 70 feet below the waves is encrusted with beautiful coral and provides a fascinating scuba adventure so long as you bring a waterproof flashlight. The ship was set up for scuba diving fun, so there’s no need to worry about a single thing. Angelfish and groupers are frequently found here.

Black Forest

While this option is for experienced divers only, it makes virtually any “best of” scuba list for Grand Cayman. The deep wall dive allows you to look out into the great blue beyond while also featuring lots of color-tastic coral and more than a few sponges. Eagle rays also visit this spot often, which again is for seasoned divers alone.

Devil’s Grotto

This dive site is found near Eden Rock and is a true underwater maze. Parrotfish, barracuda, tarpon, and silversides are among the marine life found here, as well as reef sharks. You’ll navigate coral canyons that look even more beautiful under the tropical sun. Many combine Eden Rock with Devil’s Grotto to explore two of Grand Cayman’s most popular scuba spots.

These are just some of the scuba diving locations for you to explore off of the magnificent Grand Cayman. Book your stay on the island today at South Bay Beach Club and ask for scuba diving recommendations–the friendly staff will be happy to help.

3 Golf Courses On Grand Cayman: Which One Will Be Your Favorite?

Grand Cayman offers endless ways to fill itineraries quickly, from deep sea dives to stunning landmarks to local events to hiking, snorkeling and beyond. It also features three lovely golf courses with views so incredible you will always want to tee off in a tropical paradise. Take a moment to learn about these golf courses as you plan the trip of a lifetime. And since there is no need to plan your trip around the weather, it is possible to Golf on Grand Cayman during any month of the year.

North Sound Club

This 18-hole, par 71 course offers mornings and afternoons of fun for beginner and seasoned golfers alike. The five sets of tee boxes engage novices, while the strong and often temperamental Caribbean winds pose challenges to golfers with years of experience. Perhaps the best spot at this popular golf club is Hole 11, which allows you to play into the wind while the awe-inspiring North Sound shines behind you. This sea-framed hole also requires making a cannon shot over the pond so you don’t get saddled with a double bogey.

There’s water on 15 of the 18 holes, iguanas of assorted sizes sunning themselves all over the green, and plenty of native greenery including coconut palms, mahogany trees, and silver thatch. Two putting greens are also found here.

The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club

You’ll play nine holes on this Greg Norman-designed golf course that also includes an 80-course indoor golf simulator measuring the impact and the flight pattern of each ball. Like the above golf club, this option offers gorgeous views of the awesome North Sound and features steady wind that makes at least five of the holes a bit challenging. Eight of the nine holes include water to further challenge your golf game. Those who have been to this golf course recommend “tagging along” even if you do not play golf to enjoy the spectacular views.

Britannia Golf Course

Another 18-hole course, Britannia is par 57 and was designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Each hole offers a unique challenge, and while this course is not as popular as the other two, it is still affordable and features sea views. There are also plenty of iguanas busy sunning themselves as you shout, “Fore!”

Enjoy golfing among many other fabulous activities on Grand Cayman. Book your stay today by contacting South Bay Beach Club.

4 Benefits You Can Expect From A Grand Cayman Beach Horse Ride

Experiencing horseback riding for the first time is an adventure you will never forget, as you are saddled on a large yet gentle animal wandering up and down various trails. And while any horseback riding excursion is unforgettable, there is something extra special about riding these incredible beasts on the beach. Throw a location like Grand Cayman in and you’ve got an experience that practically borders on the ethereal. Take a moment to consider what benefits you will enjoy from a Grand Cayman horseback riding adventure on the beach.

Benefit #1: Ridiculously-Beautiful Views

Go horseback riding on a Grand Cayman beach to soak in stunning views of the Caribbean coastline. Canter down pristine beaches while basking in the beauty of your surroundings, whether yours is a morning or sunset ride. Some prefer the fresh beauty of a new day atop a horse, while others want to watch the sun melt into the sea. Either way, it’s incredible.

Benefit #2: A Whole New Way Of “Swimming”

Sure, you’ve gone swimming in Grand Cayman, but how about “swimming” while on the back of a trusty steed? When you go horseback riding on the beach in Grand Cayman, you have the option of a beach and swim ride where your animal goes into the water with you. Horses love water, and the friendly beasts who provide tourists with rides know exactly how to maneuver the gentle waves. Keep in mind such rides are not suitable for any non-swimmers in your group.

Benefit #3: Lots Of Picture-Taking Opportunities

Pack your waterproof camera to take pictures from angles you won’t get anywhere else. Capture beach or beach and swim rides from the back of your horse for images so outstanding your friends back home will be extra jealous.

Benefit #4: A New Animal Acquaintance

Enjoy the chance to make a new animal friend when you go horseback riding on Grand Cayman. Quarter horses, painted stallions, and Arab horses are among the most common four-legged riding companions at stables across Grand Cayman, all of whom are extremely used to tourist rides. Horses are also pack animals who simply follow the leader, so there is no danger of yours running off into the sunset. If anything, you will bond with the animal and may even get a gentle head butt at the end of your ride.

Going Kayaking For The First Time? Read This First

Whether you are a longtime fan of water activities or simply want to try something new, kayaking around Grand Cayman offers an experience you will remember always. Like any water sport or activity, there are a few things you need to know before you start paddling so you can enjoy a fun and safe experience instead of finding yourself going overboard. Use these tips to give yourself an extra edge before going kayaking for the first time:

Dress For The Water

The weather may be gorgeous on Grand Cayman most days of the year, but it still important to dress for the water instead of the weather. It is always a little colder on the water, even if you are in the Cayman Islands and not a river in the New England section of the U.S. Wear a wetsuit if you think it is appropriate, or at least board shorts and a rash guard. This, of course, is in addition to your lifejacket, which is an absolute must any time you engage in a water sport or similar activity.

Sit Up Straight

Proper posture is a kayaking necessity for easier paddling. Whether your kayak features a backrest or not, sit up straight so your lower back and behind are at a comfortable 90 degree angle to each other. Rest your feet in the kayak’s footpegs with your knees slightly bent outward so they make more contact with the thigh braces, if applicable. If your kayak is of the sit-in rather than sit-on variety, it will not include these braces.

Give Yourself A Brief Paddling Lesson

A working idea of how to paddle makes getting on the water much less complicated. To practice, sit in a chair holding a broom handle or hockey stick and imagine yourself on the water. Paddle from side to side and get a professional lesson if you need additional help.

Bring Extra Clothes

Bring extra clothes in the event of your kayak capsizing, and remember your safety and that of your fellow kayakers is more important than the small boats, especially in rougher water. Pay close attention to your instructor’s capsize drill and ask questions about anything you are unsure about. And remember, you are going to get wet even if you don’t capsize, so the extra clothes will be welcome once your kayaking adventure is over.

5 Unique Cayman Island Attractions You Cannot Miss

Grand Cayman is filled with ways to spend your days. If you recently booked a trip to this island paradise, ensure your excursion is truly unforgettable by adding any (or all) of these unique attractions to your itinerary. Don’t forget to pack your camera along with some disposable back-ups so you have plenty of opportunities to snap amazing photos.

Stingray City

Ever wanted to kiss a stingray? Even if the answer is a resounding no, Stingray City just might be the most incredible aquarium touch pool on the planet. Situate yourself on a sandbar in the shallow, beautifully-blue water while southern stingrays wander up to feed. Don’t worry, they aren’t interested in feeding on you, and they are so used to humans that you can easily pet them.

Hell

Yes, you read that correctly. Visit Grand Cayman and “go to hell,” or the limestone formations in West Bay that could be mistaken for the fifth circle of that fiery place. Complete with a devil statue and a kitschy gift shop, it’s easy to spend a few hours in Hell. There’s even a post office so you can send postcards from the underworld. Keep in mind that Hell gets very hot (no pun intended) in the summer.

Siren Of Sunset Reef

Amphitrite, the underwater mermaid statue known as the Siren of Sunset Reef, is a 9-foot bronze wonder found 55 feet below the waves in a coral reef near the Sunset House Hotel. The sculpture by Simon Morris satisfies any mermaid fascination and is perfect if you desire a diving adventure as part of your Grand Cayman experience.

Wreck Of The Teignmouth Electron

Left to disintegrate on the beach of Cayman Brac is the Teignmouth Electron, a 40-foot vessel found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean in 1969. Donald Crowhurst, the ship’s builder and captain, was never found. Adding to his mysterious disappearance are his erratic log entries that have some speculating he jumped overboard. And while the ship had several owners after Crowhurst, it was eventually left to rot. If you love abandoned ships, this site is for you.

Davinoff’s Concrete Sculpture Garden

Old Man Bay in Grand Cayman features Davinoff’s Concrete Sculpture Garden, a stunning concrete garden masterpiece featuring an assortment of island and sea creatures, some of which are native exclusively to the Cayman Islands. The concrete blue iguana is one such creature, and that’s in addition to a giant octopus and crab among others.

Book your Grand Cayman stay at South Bay Beach Club to enjoy these and endless other unique attractions!
