Weighing in the region of 150 lbs. and approximately five feet in width, visitors can swim and interact with the stingrays. Charter boats depart daily to Stingray City from several piers along Seven Mile Beach.
5. Dive The Reef
Diving in the Cayman Islands is an incredible experience, with magnificent marine life, stunning reefs and exciting sites to be seen, it’s no wonder it has become one of the world’s top dive destinations.
The three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman sit on the tips of an undersea ridge which plunges in places to more than 21,000 feet, providing spectacular walls and drop-offs. The warm, clear, calm waters together with an incredible variety of marine life makes Cayman an amazing diving experience.

Visit Kirk Freeport and Camana Bay for designer jewellery, watches, cosmetics and high fashion boutiques.
