We arrived in Grand Cayman early in the morning.
When we woke up and looked out the window this is what we saw.
Not really what I had expected.
The cruise ships aren't able to dock at port because it's too shallow so we had to 'tender' in (take another boat to shore).
The port area is a tourist trap as to be expected.
But, we were tourists and took pictures.
I did refrain from buying any of the 'junk' they were trying to sell.
Brad booked us on a stingray island and snorkeling excursion.
We didn't book any of our shore trips through Carnival because they are double the price.
Instead, Brad found local companies.
We were pleased that our tour was a smaller group as it had been marketed, only 15 of us.
In fact, we boarded the boat at the owner's home.
Just one of the homes in the neighborhood.
It was a 25-minute boat ride out to stingray island and there were a lot of other tour companies.
We were amazed at how clear the water was!!
Just like a swimming pool!
The sandbar area was full of stingrays and our tour guides worked with us so we could hold them, kiss them, and of course..take pictures of all of it.
This is one picture we purchased from them.
The rest are on our waterproof, disposable camera and we still don't have it back yet.
We LOVED Grand Cayman!
By far - the highlight of our trip.
After our stingray encounter we went to a reef area and snorkeled and it was all we had dreamed of!
Of course, the pictures of that are on that same camera.
As for the city of Grand Cayman?
We didn't explore because we weren't interested in shopping and after being in the heat and gone most of the day we were tired.
So, we got back on the boat and enjoyed a low-key night.
We didn't even eat dinner in the dining room, instead just enjoyed the alternatives that were offered.
For me that was pizza and sushi for Brad.
It was a great day!!
Next and last stop on this BabyMoon recap is Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
