Stingray City tours
For a view of Cayman you will never forget, take a trip with Cayman Islands Helicopters. Pilot Jermone Bergot provides the perfect commentary as you soar across the island, taking in the pristine scenery and the ever-changing colours of the water.
The most popular trip is the Stingray City tour. This fun ride takes in the vistas of North Sound as well as George Town and Seven Mile Beach for a 20-minute hop that will change your perspective of Grand Cayman.
There is also the option of a whole island tour, which takes in the sights from Pedro St James to Rum Point and Stingray City, before heading back across West Bay and Seven Mile Beach to Owen Roberts International Airport.
For the ultimate romantic evening, Cayman Islands Helicopters offers a sunset flight with hotel pickup and champagne, followed by dinner at Ristorante Pappagallo, The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, or Camana Bay. You will arrive in style as the helicopter drops you off to your dinner date. After dinner, you will be chauffeured back to your hotel in a private limousine.
