Owner description: We are a locally owned company that has been in the private charter business for over 6 years. The owner has been working with family boat charters, in the Cayman Islands, since the age of 6, some 30+ years now! Striving to offer something different to locals and tourists alike. Cayman Private Charters operates a fleet of 7 boats including our flagship and most popular "Paradise Explorer". Which is a 55' yacht that can comfortably cruise with up to 20 people in luxury and style with onboard Seabob and Jet-ski! There is no comparable way to explore the fantastic & magical Cayman waters! In addition we operate smaller boats such as our beautiful 36' Intrepid with twin 300's, 34' Intrepid, 32' Regal cruiser, and our 23' power catamaran style snorkeling boat. Why go with a regular tour operator when you can charter your own private boat with a private captain and guide. We offer so much, such as water skiing, Rum Point, Kaibo, snorkeling, dinner cruises, SCUBA diving, and of course the Stingray City sandbar. All of our boats have been used for anniversaries, weddings, proposals, birthdays, sightseeing, sunbathing, general relaxing and massages, real estate exploring and of course snorkeling, diving and world famous stingray city sandbar.

“Wedding Party Cruise May 25, 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

On behalf of my wife, our family and friends. We wish to graciously thank Bill Baldwin, Owner-Cayman Private Charters and the crew on "Paradise Explorer" for taking our wedding party of 22 people who sailed from Caymana Bay to Kaibo Dock on our wedding day May 25, 2013. Our guests truly enjoyed the luxurious comfort on the yacht, as we leisurely made our way to our wedding reception in Old Man Bay.

The 55' "Paradise Explorer" provided enough seating for all of us on our trip across to Kaibo dock. The interior cabins were spacious and the upper deck had comfortable bean bag chairs to lounge in while we sailed.

We highly recommend booking with Cayman Private Charters, as we were offered a wide selection of boat options to choose from. We received excellent customer service and had a fun time aboard.

Thanks again!

The Laihow Family

“Unbelievable Experience for me and my family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My husband and our two sons were staying at The Ritz Grand Cayman for our 20th anniversary and I did alot of research on what we would do while we were there (like 6 mos in advance). I reviewed other charters and found this to be the BEST one! Our sons would agree. They picked us up from our hotel and brought is to the Marina to board their beautiful 55ft Bayliner "Paradise Explorer". Worth every penny. Captain Clive and T'Neal provided exceptional service from the moment we stepped aboard the yacht. I had preordered great food, drinks, etc. They took us to Stingray Deep where not alot of people know about like they do at Stingray City. Been there, done that. Way to touristy for me, but to each his own. We swam with stingrays and Clive even got a stingray for our 14 year old son to hold and feed. I even had the courage to feel it and swim with them and I am a big chicken. He took us to beautiful reefs and Starfish point where Captain Clive got our older son, 19, up on a wakebaord with one of the waverunners aboard and pulled him all around with no one in sight. It was so cool. If you want to know the main attraction, which is additional monies, you HAVE to get the SeaBob experience. Couldnt get our sons, let alone my husband off of it. You felt like something out of a James Bond movie. You have to "ride/steer" it in order to get the full experience. When they mentioned seabob, we had no idea. I thought they were going to pull us around on a big banana thing. You have no idea. This is a beautiful boat and they made our anniversary very special. Yes, I would look no further. You get what you pay for and we got a memory to last a lifetime! Thank you Keri for making this so special and Captain Clive and T'Neal too! Yes, like Captain and Tenille, but only us older folks (coming up on 50) know about them. Enjoy!

Clive and T’Neal are an important part of our successful team and they enjoyed having you aboard Paradise Explorer. YES, the seabob is very much like a James Bond movie and am glad your boys had so much fun with it. We look forward to your next visit to Cayman and another memorable trip soon!

“Wonderful Experience - Worth the money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stayed at the Ritz and had Cayman Private Charters pick us up straight from there. The boat was in great shape and the captain was very professional. He took us to Stingray City, Starfish Point, and stopped along the way to do some fishing and catch conch, with which he made ceviche. It was amazing. I would highly recommend this charter company.

“Great time in Grand Cayman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We had a great time with Cayman Private Charters and specifically with Ollie, our guide for the day. Ollie was personable, intelligent, and generally a nice guy. He took us to some great snorkeling (including feeding squid to stingrays) and found a great place for us to have lunch on a beautiful, deserted strip of white sand. From the pick up at our ship to the time on the water with Ollie to the drop off back at the port, everything went like clockwork. Even the sandwiches we ordered for the trip were tasty. Everyone we came in contact with at Cayman Private Charters was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend Cayman Private Charters to others.
