Try Catamaran Charters Grand Cayman And Discover A Life Changing Vacation

By Kevin Howard


Sailing is the perfect way to enjoy an island holiday and catamaran charters grand cayman is the perfect way to visit and enjoy the wondrous beauty and tranquility that is Cayman Islands. The ideal combination of accommodation and transport, modern catamarans are luxurious, well equipped and best of all, affordable.

With a twin hull design, catamarans provide far more surface area than their mono hull cousins. Increased area means more room for leisure, recreation, and sleeping, whilst still having ample space for facilities such as kitchen and bathrooms. Another great advantage is the reduced draft of a catamaran compared to the deep keels of most yachts, that enables them to navigate and moor in really shallow waters.

Because they are more steady than yachts they are really good for all kinds of seaside fun including canoeing, snorkel and scuba diving, angling or simply having a swim. If this sounds like too much hard work try just stretching out and soak up some rays, enjoy a chilled drink and just think about how good the barbecued fish is going to taste shortly. Fortunately there are limitless ways to just unwind, be laid back and appreciate this heavenly place.

For some people to just drift here and there is ultimately satisfying. Others prefer doing some real sailing to uncover more of the 90 miles of wonderful coastal attractions within easy cruising distance. There are so many moorings and enticing spots to be explored along this coastline, it would be pretty difficult to see them all. While some just lust to explore, others appear completely at ease to remain the entire vacation in the huge protected bay of North Sound.

Some absolute must do activities to get the visitor out of that state of chilled out bliss. Firstly, a visit to Stingray City, a series of shallow sand bars in the north west corner of North Sound. Swim or wade in the waist high water and interact with the abundant Southern Stingrays that inhabit this unique environment.

Diving down among the shipwrecks is another definite on the must do list. The wreck Cali is ideal for beginners as it is very close to the shoreline, around 40 yards, so will be within easy reach for most swimmers. Experienced divers will love the ex US Navy ship Kittiwake, which lies in deeper waters but still relatively near to the renowned Seven Mile Beach. Having 5 decks and plenty of rooms for exploring it is a fascinating dive. As it lies within the Marine Park, it does have certain regulations to be observed and fees to be paid, so maybe good to do this one with a chartered dive team.

Named by some travel organizations among the best top dozen beaches in the world, Seven Mile Beach is situated on the western side of the island. Despite being in one of the most exclusive areas it is fully open to the public. Coral sands and sparkling waters, just a stroll along the beach is a pleasure with restaurants, resorts, beach bars along its length. With activities galore, try paragliding for example. The length is a point of conjecture, however, because it is not really seven miles long, but nobody seems to notice, or care.

Venture inland to the attractions of George Town and get some retail therapy at Camana Bay, or a visit to a rum distillery and National Museum. A bit further out at the Botanical Gardens, or the Mastic hiking trail, all will be well worth a visit. In so far as the many attractions on offer, these mentioned are but the tip of an iceberg, which is of course is the one thing that one will not find here.
