Sea Elements offers an exceptional opportunity for a unique adventure in Cayman's beautiful mangrove forests, Reefs, Stingray City and the very unique BioBay. During the Kayak and Mangrove trips you will learn about this saltwater forest while looking for unique birds, baby fish in the mangrove nursery and iguanas climbing among the tangled roots on our intimate boat tour. Suitable for all ages and families! Follow your guide among the tangled roots and over the seagrass meadows for a mangrove snorkel. Go slow and look for sea squirts, anemones and seahorses! The Stingray City and Reef snorkel tours are limited to small groups on our comfortable and spacious 35ft boat. We go at your pace. Private Charters available at an affordable price. The BioBay tour is a must see! One of only a handful of such bays around the world. We offer a once in a lifetime chance to snorkel in this bay and experience the bioluminescence up close. All tours offer FREE pick up and drop of in the 7MIle Beach area!

Either by pontoon boat (which I did) or by kayak, this experience is a must see!! The Captain and crew were knowledgeable and most importantly local. The BioBay tour is only done at night, and on certain phases of the moon so you must plan accordingly. The experience is like swimming at night and moving through pixie dust! It is... More

Went to see the bio plankton in action. Very unique experience is a must! There are not facilities for using the restroom so you want to make sure you go before the trip. Very knowledgeable staff about the environment and great recommendation about how to visualize the bio plankton. The captain was a very safe boat driver and I felt... More

Captain Mike picked us up during a rare downpour and took us to his boat, where we waited a short while for the storms to clear. The ride across the bay was fun and we arrived just as darkness overcame the bio bay. Swimming in the bath warm bay water surrounded by magical creatures was amazing. It was as if... More

My husband and I and our two teenage sons took the bio boat tour on July 14. They do offer pick up from the 7 mile beach area but because we had rented a car, they said it would probably be quicker and more convenient for us to drive ourselves. Unfortunately we got a little lost and arrived late, much... More

We did the mangrove tour with Ryan on Monday and had a blast. The noon day time was very hot but we waited until the last minute to book so that is on us.

The tour guides, Capt. Don and Gary, did there jobs and were welcoming. This company seems to be the only ones that will pick you up at your hotel on 7 mile beach and boat you over to the bioluminescent bay on the north side of the island. This is a once in a lifetime experience. Definitely a bucket list... More

For our last night in Grand Cayman, we wanted to experience the wonders of the bioluminescent bay. Unfortunately, most of the other companies did not do pick up from the hotel, and the meet up point was on the other side of the island. Not very convenient if you don't plan on renting a car during your stay. Instead, we... More

Captain Mike and Carrie gave our family an incredible experience about which we can't wait to tell everyone. They are knowledgeable and they run a safe and educational operation. This is truly a unique experience that reaffirms our belief that Cayman is one of the most beautiful and interesting places on Earth!

First, my thoughts on Sea Elements snorkeling tour: The bio bay was beautiful. It was like swimming in a glowing snow globe. It was expensive four our family of four, but worth doing as a "once in a lifetime" experience. We all enjoyed it, and are glad we did it. We were especially glad we did the snorkeling tour and...
