Discover the magic of dolphins
Not just for kids, swimming with dolphins in Grand Cayman is the experience of a lifetime for the entire family! Visitors to Cayman can enjoy the chance to fulfill their dream in state-of-the-art dolphinariums, either at Dolphin Discovery or at Dolphin Cove. At these two locations, guests will have an up-close experience with the most fascinating marine mammals on the planet.
Visitors can choose from four exciting activities. There’s no need to be a great swimmer or have any special skills; everyone can enjoy swimming with dolphins.
Both dolphinariums are certified by the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums for exceeding the international standards of animal welfare. Interactive programmes with dolphins emphasise environmental education, thereby developing the ecological education of our guests by means of interaction with marine mammals.
I scream for ice cream!
As a kid, the best holidays were always the ones filled with endless ice cream. Cayman has some really great ice cream locations that you and your kids really ought to try. Gelato & Co in Camana Bay is perhaps this writer’s all-time favourite – with quality ingredients and flavours all true to this Italian masterpiece, the gelato. Haagan Dazs is also in Camana Bay and never fails to please. Peach Wave is another huge favourite, located in the Falls along West Bay Road. Create your dream ice complete with toppings. Smoothie King along the West Bay Road and also in George Town is a pleasing healthy alternative, as is Smoothie Factory in the Marquee Plaza, which also offers D-I-Y ice cream sundaes. Delish!
