It may be tempting to spend your Grand Cayman vacation poolside, but with azure sea all around, no trip is complete without experiencing the island's marine life. On this outdoor excursion perfect for nature enthusiasts, enjoy a three-stop tour by boat, where you're whisked off shore to experience the aquatic world. Highlights include swimming, snorkeling, and viewing marine life in the shallow waters—all with a captain to lead the way.

This place was way cooler than I expected it to be. We booked an excursion via Royal Caribbean on a cruise. The trip was easy and on arrival, we spent a short time getting a lesson on sea turtles and conservation before being allowed to touch and even climb into tanks with the baby turtles. I thought that was the end of the trip, but the center has a lagoon where you can sunbathe, swim, and even rent snorkel equipment to snorkel with more turtles and fish. They have a restaurant and bar onsite but we didn't eat there. They also had a small water park with water slides and a regular pool I would go back in a heartbeat and plan to spend a whole day here if I could.

I visited as part of a excursion with a cruise ship. It was just my 1 year old son, my boyfriend, and myself. We enjoyed this location a lot. You are able to get in pools with turtles and touch them. We were also able to use snorkel gear. The water was a bit colder than I like but it was a fun experience. My son absolutely loved seeing the chickens run around and he could have just sat watching them all day. The restaurant had pretty decent food and the wait was not too long. The souvenir shop had a good selection of items.

Our family enjoyed this stop on a shore excursion and we could have stayed much longer! We were able to touch baby sea turtles, including entering the water with them, and the kids loved the swimming area. As we were leaving, we noticed another beach/swimming area where we could have interacted with more turtles and wildlife. This was a highlight of our visit to the Caymans.

It was not busy this Sunday but we had a good time learning about the turtles and even swimming/snorkeling with them in the lagoon. We took advantage of the full access and enjoyed the waterslide and pool. I also liked the birds and butterflies. Not a fancy place but just right for a couple of hours in the morning before it got too hot. Great for kids.

This is one of the main attractions in the Grand Cayman. Excellent place to visit with kids. Lots of interactive activities along with some swimming with exotic fish and turtles. Highly recommended.
