Spotts, Cayman Islands - Private Tour Grand Cayman



Our group was originally booke for a tour to Stingray City with Moby Dick Tours. While we were waiting for the beginning of tendering we learned that we did not call George Town as the port was closed due to rough sea. But we were in Spotts on the Southern coast of Grand Cayman. I tried to call Moby Dick Tours but there we was only a voicemail answering.

There was no announcement when tendering starts Scott went downstairs to see and told us to come. Obviously only ship's tour participants were using the tender. But they accepted our tickets.






This should be a chaos today: one narrow bridge for three cruise ships.



On the narrow bridge the ship's photographer wanted to do their business. While we were waiting none was fallen into the water.

But all others wanted to stop and take pictures or wait for each other even it was so narrow. On the beach tons of signs for the different tour groups.






Unfortunately we learned that Moby Dick Tours cancelled the tour. The next day we learned from moeve (Alexandra) that there tour was running. Maybe it was so bad at the time of cancellation or they had a better full charter and did not want to tell. But we will never know this.

We were in an unpleasant situation: we weared all our bathing suits because we wanted to go to the water asap and bought the underwater equipment twice for nothing. And we had no internet access because there was no roaming agreement for data transfer between C&W and T-Mobile and other carrier only offer EDGE-voice services. That there was an information we saw later the afternoon.






MOBY DICK recommended us WITHOUT RESERVATIONS to participate on tour: 25 USD per person for three hours with a local tour guide.

We were pushed in such a mini-bus which started when the bus was full. There were not so many alternatives: Even some puffers were offering the tours at the beach but it ended up in one and the same bus.






Here you see the outcome of Hurricane Ivan who was active in 2003.

We passed the port. The sea looked somehow a little bumpy.






And this should be the Royal Watler Terminal where we supposed to arrive.

Better than the beach in Spotts.






Especially with an infrastructure I liked: close to downtown, stores and internet-café.

The 7-miles-beach was only 5 1/2 miles. We saw it from time to time by passing by in transit if there were no house in between.






The stay at the Governour's house took seconds in the exit. "Left you see the house of the Govenour who is elected every few years." In this time you can take pictures but it was not enough to open the windows.

That was a typical cementary.






One of the few houses without damages after Hurricane Ivan.

At the end of the 7-Mile-Beach we were allowed to get off and take pictures.






But this is not the section all the ship's tours are going to.

ellbon (Robin) put her feet into the water and told us it was really cold. So she looked for typical souvenirs instead.






Katie got for 3 USD the only stingray we should see all the day.

At Calico Jack's all ship's tours visitors and us will be dropped off if you want to go to the beach. A bar with sunbeds and shower fascilities.






Let's continue to hell.

It's a tourist trap.






as you can with all the buses. We does not need to see urgently a restroom, esspecially as woman or seating man, should let it and wait a little.

Hmmm...






The enty to the devil

and his parking.






Ah... and here the devil should raged around.

A wooden puppet in front of the rail.






and one in the fiield of lava.

in case someone has not disappeared so far...






But the Coke-truck was passing the devil. Reasons to go to hell if you get only Pepsi in heaven.

Next to the hell: chicken...






and their little houses.

We continued to the Rum-Cake-Manufacturer. Here you find nicer toilets and urinals for men too. But especially free rum- and rumcake-specialities to try.






Here you get Patties: pastries filled with chicken, beef or vegetables.

The turtle farm was only accessible for 18 USD admission fee. And if you want the driver join you to the farm, you need to pay his ticket as well. But you can also see the dolphins free of charge if you did not become wet.






Here with Dolphin Discovery you have nice clean modern toilets as they need them for guests who booked to swim with dolphins.

That's why there was a total different infrastructure: 159 USD was the price here.






And here is one of the dolphins...

but they did not react to stay calm and nice for a nice picture.






It was a shame that they did not come closer.

We did not want to go to the beach but directly wanted to get back to the ship to see about our baggage. For the worst case we could still act. Once we sailed it should be more difficult. We were surprised to see VOYAGER OF THE SEAS in George Town.






She was handled at the North Terminal.

Machinery ran perfectly here as well.






If there would be more ships: the South Terminal.

All others wanted to do some shopping and asked to be dropped off in downtown. For 5 USD per person they took you back to the ships. Our driver was not very much excited that we did not want to stay at downtown. He was less excited when I asked him if there would be place to take great pictures of VOYAGER OF THE SEAS. He was more cooperative when he felt that his tip might be in danger if he would not give me an extra loop to take pictures. CELEBRITY EQUINOX was waiting for us.






All three companies erected their tents.

Well organised: we need to queue up from the right side. CARNIVAL LIBERTY from the left and MSC POESIA from the center.






We got some beverages but there was still no need to sanitize the hands.

Some was stranded here at the rocky beach.






The pirate's ship went to us to Spotts.

And so we say bye-bye to George Town and was somehow a little upset why we did not stay on board.






The nice picture with MSC POESIA and CARNIVAL LIBERTY was somehow a comfort.
