This is by far the best attraction in grand cayman. Once again, though the horses are magnificent and the activity itself is so special and fun, It is the staff that make this unforgettable. I booked the private tour for my daughters 11th birthday. The recommended Age on their website says 14 but after speaking to a staff Member on... More

This was a wonderful start to our mother-daughter vacation. From friendly Graden with the hotel pick up to Michael's energetic guidance on the horses. Made me feel like a Caribbean Cowgirl! Thank you for a marvelous experience. We really enjoyed ourselves.

My family enjoyed a nice relaxing ride while celebrating my sons 16 birthday. We were met at the rendezvous point in West Bay and followed the staff to start of the trail. Michael and Jordan were our guides and made us feel very welcomed. We were all paired off with our horses and off we went. We took the beach... More

We happened to be on the island when my daughter turned 14 and she picked this excursion for her birthday present. They offer shuttle service which is good because the ride takes place on a more remote part of the island and might be hard to get to without a car. Being on a remote part of the island makes...

The highlight was our ride with Spirit of the West--the beach was beautiful, the water was so colorful and amazing and our guide Jordan was fantastic! He was friendly, polite and informative. He taught us a lot about his wonderful island home. It was our family's first time riding... More

Had a great time horseback riding in the ocean. Best to go in the morning before it gets too hot. Great experience!

Wonderful fun!!! When we saw the horseback swim on trip advisor, we immediately decided to plan this adventure during our Grand Cayman stay. It had been a LONG time since either of us had been riding, but the guides were terrific! The horses are so well trained they knew what to do and where to go, so we really had... More

After reviewing multiple horse riding companies, I decided on Spirit of the West. I booked a ride for my 7yo daughter, myself and my husband. Due to having an infant, they accommodated our ride allowing my husband and I to switch halfway to both be able to enjoy the experience with our daughter. Jordan was a very experienced, friendly and... More
