We went off shore from the Burger King. Also gorgeous. Hard to go wrong in Cayman.

I don't remember the names, but there were some great places right near where you tender to. There isn't really great snorkeling on 7 mile beach, but it is a beautiful beach (you'll need a taxi to get there). I hope your children will get to like snorkeling, too. It's an awesome way to experience the wonders of the ocean.

I usually go to Abanks' Dive Center. It is a short walk from the tenders. Pretty decent free (it used to be) snorkeling, and the restaurant has awesome conch fritters. A wonderful view of the ship from there too. You can rent a chair or a locker if needed. They also have equipment rentals.

Here is a map of the location. You will also see a "Diver Down" flag flying over the location from the ship.
