Tomorrow morning we start out trip!

Tomorrow is the day! We are excited and ready. Me the wife and 3 kids will be staying at the Island Houses of Cayman Kai, Tranquility house for 8 days. We will do our best to report on all that we do and post reviews. The wife and I had stopped at Grand Cayman last year on a cruise and absolutely loved it, and we made a decision then to return and stay awhile. Looking forward to having a great time.

I forgot to ask my question, LOL. Too excited I guess. Question, the kids are wanting to snorkel and I was wondering if they have like a jacket or something you could rent from Red Sail? I'm worried about how far out we may have to swim and want a safety net in case any problems arise.

No life jacket required. Yes you can rent it red cell but our condo had some, you should inquire with the owner. Rome point have some good smoking along with the ones in testudios guide. I pick some up off of craigslist for 10 bucks , and took them with us. To the north side of the pier at the retreat beach entrance you can swim straight out in there are some boulders that are teeming with fish. Also at the rocks on the point on the north side of the pier if you do the little drifter out and follow it back to the pier they're all kinds of seafan garden it gets kind of shallow in places but its pretty cool. feel free to PM with questions

I dont know how old your kids are, or their swimming abilities, but if you want to get to the reef off of Rum Point its a bit of a swim out. Really not for the very young, or inexperienced snorkeler. The line of boulders to the right of the pier are a good start and there are a lot of fish there. Its only in about 3 feet or so of water and close to shore. That said, ask at red sail, if they dont rent them, I would think they could direct you to where you could.
