Attraction Details
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.

“Highlight of our family vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Captain Hotshot and Kate were amazing. Not only were they friendly, informative, and accomadating, but humorous as well! 10 minutes into our day and our family of 8 adults felt like we were amongst longtime friends. They allowed us to choose our points of destination, but shared honest opinions about hit/miss spots and what to expect. They gave us a personal experience feeding and swimming with the rays at Stingray Bay that will never be forgotten because they captured it with an underwater camera! We also choose to go snorkeling where Kate led those who were interested, pointing out and naming unique sealife. However, the biggest highlight for the young adults on the boat (ages 26-35) was being propelled underwater by the Seabob, and roaming around on the Seado while our parents relaxed at Starfish Beach. Our family had a blast with our only regret being not booking a second tour during our stay in Grand Cayman! I highly recommend booking a charter with Captain Hotshot for lifetime memories, never to be forgotten!

“Highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

This is the best money you will spend in the Caymans! Steve and Jeff were fantastic. We got to see some of the main attractions of Grand Cayman without the crush of the crowds and with the ultimate personal touch. I HIGHLY recommend spending a day with Cayman Private Charters!!

“Captain Steve A+++”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

While I was not the one who went through the booking process to arrange the day trip, so cannot comment on that, as a guest on Captain Steve's boat, all I can say is "PHENOMENAL!" He and Louis and Dianat were the BEST hosts anyone could imagine. So informative, friendly, laid back, supremely accommodating — did EVERYTHING possible to make sure our family of 10 had a fantastic time — they even made it possible for my 82 yr old mom to go in to swim the the stingrays! Nature provided the awesome backdrop, but Steve provided the ability to enjoy it. His boat and water toys were exceptional — but don't think for a moment he doesn't take his job seriously — he knew where EVERY member of our family was at every point in time in the water. Such a great Captain and team! Would BEYOND highly recommend their services!

“By far the highlight of our vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This was by far one of the best experiences we have had on vacation. Swimming with the stingrays was awesome. Watching our captain dive down and collect conch shells, and then make us fresh conch ceviche while anchored at starfish beach was unforgettable. The captain was a native to the islands and his dedication to his job showed through all of his actions. If we make it back the Cayman Islands we will definitely be doing this again.

“Cayman Private Charters- thumbs way up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

What a way to make a perfect day even better. Steve and Dianat were absolutely spectacular on our trip. We went out with 17 of us...they upgraded the boat to a larger boat, and had a wave runner, sea bob, and took us everywhere. Everyone on the trip had a great time..... kids, adults, teens. It was like having a family member take you around the island. Thanks guys and we hope to do it again with you someday soon!
