THE EASTERN DRIVE
$64 Per Person (4 1/2 Hours)
have the benefit of the best guide on the island telling tales as he takes
you for a glimpse into the old time Cayman lifestyle. Among your stops, as
you tour the historic Eastern districts, will be the traditional Watler's
Cemetery at Old Prospect and a trip to Grand Cayman's original capital,
Bodden Town, believed to have been used by pirates. Unmarked graves are
supposed to mark where they lie.
You will also drive into the little village of Old Man Bay, one of the earliest settlements on the North Coast. In addition, you'll view a second "Hell"- limestone formations on the North Coast and an off-road foray into the traditional agricultural "Grounds" of the rocky Northern Ridge of the island, where farmers still tend their plots by hand very much in the same way as they did over a century ago. This area is also an excellent birding area with a high probability of seeing wild parrots.
Then comes a wonderful ride along the scenic South coast, which culminates in a visit to picturesque East End. Along the way, you will also see the blow holes, waterspouts that rise above the coral rock in unusual patterns as water is funnelled along passages in the rock when the waves roll in.
