Take a 30-minute bus ride to meet the dolphins at Discovery Dolphin Cayman.

This excursion is all about the stingrays. After a short bus ride and a 40 minute cruise by power catamaran you'll reach the Stingray City sandbar, where you'll don snorkel, mask, and dive vest (no fins are worn, you'll be wading on the sandbar) and have 40 minutes in the water with these marvelous creatures.

Replace scuba's air tank with an air hose fed from the surface and you have Snuba. No dive certification is required, and you'll breathe more freely than snorkeling allows. The dive site is just minutes from the pier in the clear waters of George Town Harbor, and after a bit of instruction you'll have 45 minutes of guided exploration in waters that are 5-20 feet deep. Drinking water is complimentary, bottled drinks are extra.

Grand Cayman has two dolphin facilities. This tour takes you to Dolphin Cove, near Stingray City.

You and up to 11 friends and relatives can share a 27- or 33-foot motor cruiser for a snorkel expedition on Grand Cayman's North Sound (all snorkel gear provided). Explore a reef in waters up to 15 feet, plus pay a visit to Stingray City! Afterwards, enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks on your way back to the ship. Let's see... $2,399 divided by 12... $199 per person still makes this the most expensive Grand Cayman excursion. You'll have to organize your own group, and the excursion will be charged to a single on-board account.

Then you'll return to dry land and head to Seven Mile Beach for a photo stop before returning to the ship. You can also stay at the beach (under-dress your swimwear) and return to the ship on your own. Wheelchair accessible, no ECVs. Must be able to board on your own.

            RE: Dolphin Encounter and Turtle Farm

            Disney's site does not include the turtle farm in their excursion list. I'm very disappointed as I know my daughter would have loved it.



                                        You are viewing page 325, which is section 101 of chapter 7 of PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line guidebook.
