WHAT YOU VISIT
- State-of-the-Art Semi-Submarine
Explore the fabulous marine wonders of Grand Cayman in the spacious, air-conditioned, luxurious semi-submarine, Nautilus, where you will see two ghostly shipwrecks, amazing coral reefs and a spectacular fun-filled fish feeding show!

- Cayman Turtle Centre
Located on the shores of Boatswain Beach, over 7,000 turtle call the farm their home, as well as a number of fish, sharks and birds. The farm is the only one of its kind in the world and houses a world-class research and educational facility that focuses on the conservation of sea turtles.

- Tortuga Rum Cake Factory
Made with a unique blend of Jamaican and Barbadian rums, these award-winning cakes offer an authentic taste of the Caribbean. A tour of the state-of-the-art facility showcases how they create up to 6,000 cakes per day! Enjoy a tasty sample or two at the end of the tour.

- Hell
No one knows how the town got its name, but it could be from the various limestone formations rising out of the ground. Short spikes of eerie-looking black rocks look like lava in the aftermath of a volcano. Be sure to stop by the fire-engine red, hell-themed post office so you can send everyone back home a "postcard from Hell."

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Have your camera at the ready as you cruise to Cheeseburger Reef, a popular spot for snorkelers and scuba divers, as a diver feeds hundreds of hungry sea creatures. Nearby are two camera-worthy shipwrecks: the Balboa, a 375-foot freighter that sank in 1932 and the Cali, a 220-foot schooner that went down off the coast of George Town in 1944. They're now cozy homes for coral, fish and sea fans.

SNACK
The Cayman Turtle Centre features a snack bar and restaurant where you can sample authentic dishes made with turtle.

SHOPPING
For those wanting to take home a taste of the tropics, be sure to visit the Tortuga Rum Cake Center gift shop. Here, you'll find many varieties of freshly baked rum cakes, including chocolate, coconut, banana and coffee.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Like a glass-bottom boat, the semi-submarine does not submerge but it offers a close up look at the colorful characters that live below the waves. With underwater visibility often exceeding 154 feet, you may see a profusion of fish gliding under the large, clear windows. Be on the lookout for Spanish hogfish with their gold and purple scales, schoolmasters in a yellow so vibrant they appear to glow, and an amazing array of brain corals and sea fans.

Special Notes:

There are 8-10 steps to get into the Semi- Submersible. Please bring sunscreen, a hat and comfortable shoes.
