Activities

Grand Cayman is a beautiful island, well worth a visit.  The beaches are superb and everyone is polite and friendly.  It can be very expensive, but good value places to eat can be found and the supermarkets stock everything you could possibly want. Tourism is king here - get your fast food fix, shop at large well stocked grocery stores, or visit any number of tourist traps.

As reported by the CSSN - 12 May, 2017:
For three weeks a yacht’s dinghy/outboard was pulled ashore well above the tide line at 6PM and left unlocked in downtown George Town while the owners went to the weekly happy hour nearby. When they returned at 8PM the dinghy/outboard had been stolen. A police report was filed by phone. Owners advise locking to the Lobster Pot dive center dock instead.

When arriving in Georgetown hail "Georgetown Port Security," not Port Authority - they tend to not respond to anything but Port Security.
