Robert was our guide. He was knowledgeable about the caves, wildlife, and vegetation. Most of all, he was entertaining. The caves were great but Robert made it interesting and enjoyable.

Magnificent caverns with many interesting features. Our guide Robert was so entertaining that I thought I would never stop smiling. Also he was very knowledgeable about the plants, animals and history of the caves. This is a MUST SEE tour.

We had a great tour of the caves with our guide Syd! The tour also has a nature walk to it so Syd could explain some of the wildlife, trees, and natural vegetation. The caves were quite nice and colorful. They currently have three caves...More

The Cayman Crystal Caves were a pleasant surprise, something less commercial to do in Grand Cayman. You do not go very deep in the earth so the air is a little warm, but not stuffy. The guides are great. There are many different rooms to...More

Maybe were were lucky with the time of the year, but we had a very nice experience visiting these caves - not too hot and bug-free. Robert our guide was very knowledgeable about the caves and the surrounding ecology.

We've been to many caves throughout the world, and each cave system has it's own character, so it's hard to say, oh these caves are better than those caves - but we can say that the Cayman Crystal Caves are absolutely beautiful and we feel...More

Fascinating Crystal caves with stalactite and stalagmites. One time under water and formed thousands of years ago. Worth the trip.

I think you'll be fine as long as you wear sneakers or good walking sandals. The terrain is mostly even but there can be loose rocks and gravel and some uneven parts. If you get too tired or something during the tour (there... More

We will be traveling to Bermuda on a cruise with our 3 children (10, 10, & 11) in early July. Had a question about the snorkel tours that were mentioned on these boards. Does anyone have a specific recommendatio? We really enjoy snorkeling and do so on all our Caribbean vacations. I always book these tours on my own vs. booking the cruise excursions, always way less expensive for 5 people. Also anyone have any information on the Crystal Caves? Are they worth a visit? Do they have 2 or...More

Are most things open the week after Christmas? (3 Replies)
My husband and I are thinking about a trip to Bermuda the week between Christmas and New Year's with our little boy. I have been doing some research about the weather patterns, and while I understand that it is the off-season, does anyone swim at this time of year? We live in coastal New York, and are quite used to ocean swimming with temperatures that average 70-74 F in August, so the December averages that I see in Bermuda don't seem too far off that. The daytime highs in the low 70s sound...More

You'll find that many watersports--snorkeling, scuba, boating, etc--excursion operators curtail heir schedules or cease operation for the winter months. You'd need to check to find out if any excursion or watersports vendor you're interested in is still operating ??...and/or...what their Winter schedule might be?? Most other stores, bars, restaurants, sites and attractions will be operating as usual during most of the week between Christmas and New Year....though BOXING DAY (MONDAY, Dec....More

Crystal Caves? (3 Replies)
Hi All!! Is it required to visit the Crystal Caves (in Old Man Bay) via a tour, or could I go on my own? Is there a charge? Thanks!

Response fromThe_Steve_from_NY|
The owner has spent quite some time developing it as a commercial attraction, and trying to stop the damage that was being done by trespassers. It's possible that they'd be willing to make special arrangements with some visitors, but if you don't have any special qualifications and just want to see the caves I expect your only option is the group tours they're offering. No idea how much the tours are.
