Great pictures, nice stop along the ride. Be sure to wear your sneakers and don't go too close. It gets dangerous.

“ok for about 15min”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

was pretty cool but not overly exciting. Would be fine to stop off and see for 10-15min but not worth the trip from Seven Mile

“A nice stop during a driving tour of the East End”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We visited the blow holes while driving around the East End, and it was definitely worth a short stop. We liked it more than some of the other scenic spots along the route, such as the Wreck of the Ten Sails. (If you don't stop to look at things along the way, there's really no sense in making the drive at all...) The ironshore is interesting to climb around on, and the blow holes produced a spray that was occasionally as tall as 30 feet. There is parking along both sides of the road. The great thing about sightseeing in Grand Cayman is that you can often just stop along the side of the road wherever you want.

“only go if you're driving that way anyway...”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

you can easily miss the blowholes. be on the look out for a sign that says "blowholes" with an arrow pointinh to the water. or you'll miss it. nice to walk down and take a photo but it's not impressive in the slightest. view is great, but it's the same view you can get anywhere.

“Five minutes of fun”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The blow holes are excellent if you are passing by but you wouldn't go out of your way to visit them specifically.

Can occasionally be impressive and good for a five minute leg stretch and walk around but after that it's a case of "been there, seen it, done it".

Add it to your list of places to stop at if you are traveling from East to West or vice versa but don't plan your day around it.
