Learn about the importance of mangroves to Cayman's eco-system during a kayaking tour through the mangroves. The root system of this diverse habitat protects Cayman from large waves and storm surges that can happen during hurricanes as well as the animals that make the tangled roots their home.
While exploring the mangrove system you’ll spot Cayman parrots, iguanas, turtles, lobsters, jellyfish, many juvenile fish and maybe even a sea horse! Kayaking is a very peaceful way to explore the Island's shoreline - it's eco-friendly, a great workout and since they make no noise you can get very close to the animals.
One of Cayman's best kept secrets is a rare bioluminescent phenomenon found only in a dozen places worldwide. Here is a list of companies that offer bioluminescence kayak tours.
Cayman Kayaks offers magical bioluminescence tours by kayak and electric catamaran from Rum Point to the bioluminescent bay which is suitable for all skill levels and only a 10 minute paddle.
