This is no ordinary day in paradise! You'll swim with stingrays, visit a turtle farm, and take a trip to Hell.

You'll begin this fascinating tour by boarding a cabin cruiser for a two-hour snorkel trip to Stingray City, where you'll be able to get out of the boat, stand on the shallow sandbar, and interact with the stingrays. Let the stingrays swim around you or don snorkel gear and get a little more up-close-and-personal. You won't believe how gentle and friendly these creatures are when you feed them right out of your hand!

The second stop is the incredible Barrier Reef, where you may see nurse sharks and moray eels, or the gorgeous Coral Gardens, known for its abundance of colorful fish. Your guide will determine the location based on the day's water conditions. You will have approximately 30 minutes of snorkel time at each stop. Your captain will determine the order of the snorkel stops.

Then, to eliminate lots of extra driving, you'll begin your land tour once you dock in the marina. Although the order of this portion of your tour may change, you'll see the prestigious Governor's House (from the outside), which Caymanians are very proud of, as well as the Old Homestead.

Continue on to drive by the famous Seven Mile Beach, which is as well-known for its stretch of white sand as it is for the shallow reefs located just off shore.

Next, you'll travel to Boatswain's Beach (pronounced "Bosuns"), a new 23-acre adventure marine park that is home to the Cayman Turtle Farm, one of Grand Cayman's most popular family attractions. Enjoy a guided tour of this one-of-a-kind turtle facility, where interactive attractions bring the wildlife, culture, and heritage of the Cayman Islands to life.

Finally, you'll take a trip to Hell and back. Located in the district of West Bay, Hell is an outcropping of limestone, looking eerily like someone's imagined vision of its namesake. The area features a red hell-themed post office from which you can send postcards, a gift shop with souvenirs, and a costumed devil greeter.
