Our group had a great night paddling out under the stars and seeing the bioluminescence. The tour was organized and timely and the guide was friendly and helpful. Our party was made up if family ages 7 to 70 and everyone had a great time!

Hello HBD,

"The tour was organized and timely and the guide was friendly and helpful."
Thank-you for noticing our care with organisation and time management.

"Our party was made up if family ages 7 to 70 and everyone had a great time!"

For future senior guests, please note that some physical is required and those that are over 65 are recommended to perhaps do a dry run on kayak during the day for those with no prior experience in a kayak or canoe.

Best

The kayaks were the most comfortable we've been in, and that was just the start. The staff had good humor and were knowledgeable about the ecosystem of the bioluminesence and the bays. The kids, ages 10 and 12, ranked this right up there with Stingray City, and raved about it to everyone who would listen when we got back.

Dave was our tour guide, and did a great job. He seemed a little disappointed that no one took him up on his offer to tow the kayak back to the dock.

I highly recommend Cayman Kayaks - great time, great people.

Julio,

Dave just finished building those tow ropes and was telling me about how excited he was to be using them for the first couple nights. That make me laugh that he seemed sad not to use them lol.

I'm happy you have a great time with Dave and enjoying the bioluminescence with Cayman Kayaks

The bioluminescence is amazing and I was glad we were able to experience it. I did feel that the tour was rushed so they could squeeze 3 trips in per night to make more money during the holidays. I also felt the tour guide catered to children even thought there were 2 on our trip. He knew his subject but It felt like kayaking with Mr. Rodgers.

More guides have been hired to take the demand of the clients.

Tour groups have gotten smaller to give a more personalised tour.

Only two tours are offered and the times have changed slightly to allow the guest to be at ease and not feel rushed.

The tour guides have all seen this review and have been informed to cater to all guests and not just the kids.

Thanks for your review

Great easy paddle to the bay where you can learn about this amazing and unique plankton. The waters glow and you can light up and handful of water up close. Great informative tour with guides that are accomadating knowledgable and care about protecting this delicate ecosystem. A must do activity when on cayman
