I went with Martin and Dennis yesterday. I learned a great deal and had a fun experience. The time flew by as we were entertained and educated as we watched hounds of marine life of all kinds plus two shipwrecks. All fascinating.

This is one of the less-intense water activities available in Grand Cayman and so is great for young children and older adults; we toured with our granddaughters (ages 5 and 7). However, it is necessary to descend a ladder so this tour is not suitable...More
