Recommended Posts

Hey guys were are taking a cruise next week and have been debating a couple of things we want to do.

Dolphins. We dont know if we want to do this here or in Jamaica? What are the prices like here? Also are there any options to do this without booking through the cruise? Would we be able to find someone to do this with the day we show up?

 

Waverunners? how much have you paid? How much time do u have? is there any training required? Is it easy to get thrown off of? Are there any limits like a weight limit or something.

You may have to contact operators for full answers.

 

Dolphins

Availability - There are only two operators in Cayman. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for the peak times which accomodate cruise ship visitors. Make your reservation through the ship or directly with the operator prior to arrival on island.

Limitations - Absolutely no pregnant women may participate. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult. There may be a minimum age and height for participants - check with the operator. Life jackets are mandatory and will be provided.

Price - Varies according to which program. Each operator offers different packages at different price points.

 

Waverunners

Availability - Reservations are not needed unless you want a waverunner tour that goes to the stingrays. Available at most major spots along Seven Mile Beach.

Limitations - The driver must be at least 16 years old. If two or more people ride on one machine, the drive must be at least 18 years old. You must be able to physically pull yourself up onto the machine if you fall off in deep water.

Price - Listed at about US$75 per half hour with an additional charge for an extra rider. As business is slow you may be able to negotiate away extra rider charges or may see promotions listing lower prices.

Need to know - The renting company provides a brief orientation on how the machine works. They are fairly simple. You can easily get thrown off the machine if you turn too fast at high speed. Injury is possible and may be serious if thrown while executing high speed manouevers.
