I notice that none of the shore excursions @ Grand Cayman include a jet skiing experience. Is this something you arrange for when you get there? Does anyone know the approx. cost and age requirement to rent jet skis?

Welcome to cruise-chat Kagibert! Many of the cruiselines have eliminated jet-ski options and they often even have announcements that discourage guests from renting them or scooters at the ports. The possibility of accidents, major injuries and law suits are the reason for the cautions. Most ports and beach areas will have them for rent. At many ports they run around $60. per half hour although on the private islands where there is no competition I've seen them as high as $90. per half hour.

Cheers, Neil

Hi Kagilbert, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

They do discourage it with good reason. One of my friends was injured when his jet-ski flipped and his necklace got caught on the handle bars. Riding a jet-ski in a lake is different than the ocean. Don't mean to preach, just a word of caution. Seven Mile Beach has rentals.
