Ocean Frontiers is all about exploring Cayman’s marine environment with a spirit for adventure. This can now be enjoyed onboard their new 31 foot Panga, “Pelican”. Just like her seabird namesake, the Pelican glides across the waves to reach your next stop in style. Pelican is brand new panga style vessel with a custom fit-out for snorkelers. Full shade from front-to-back, comfortable seating and a purpose built platform and ladder to make getting in and out easy.
With a desire to come up with new and exciting excursions, Ocean Frontiers now operate nine different snorkel trips around Grand Cayman; East End, North Sound, Frank Sound and the Kittiwake Wreck.
New for 2019 is the Frank Sound “Coral Explorer” Snorkel trip. An adventure on the frontier of snorkeling in Grand Cayman without another boat in sight. Snorkel uncharted sites in the Frank Sound lagoon and visit reefs few others have ever seen. This trip is an Ocean Frontiers exclusive.
Popular East End snorkel trips include the 3-Stop Coral Reef Snorkel Boat Tour, which visits three different sites around the East End lagoon, including a visit to the underwater webcam. For more experienced snorkelers, the X-Snorkel Boat Tour explores the East End barrier reef where they navigate, point-to-point, along a 1,000 meter stretch of untouched coral reefs for a one-of-a-kind experience.
Ocean Frontiers offers even more adventures in the North Sound with five different trips departing from Kaibo Yacht Club, with 1-stop, 2-stop and 3-stop trips to the Sandbar to visit the world famous Southern Stingrays, the 2-stop adds in a reef snorkel and the 3-stop includes a visit to Starfish Point. For those looking for that special trip, try one of the Ocean Frontiers exclusives with ‘Dawn Stingrays’ so you can be the very first people on the Sandbar and have all of the rays to yourself. Or, choose to cap off the day with the ‘Champagne Stingrays’ tour that visits the Sandbar after most of the crowds have departed. On your way back to the dock, the Ocean Frontiers crew pops a bottle of bubbly for guests to enjoy while taking in a spectacular Cayman sunset.
Private Snorkel Charters are available on the Pelican so you can choose your own itinerary and explore the best the island has to offer and do it your way. Cruise, Snorkel, Explore and Sightsee, with options for 3 hours, 5 hours or a full day.
