Places to See With Point Blue Sailing: Stingray City
Stingray Sandbar: Grand Cayman is one of the few locations in the world for an up close encounter with wild stingrays in their natural environment. Stingray Sandbar is the most famous, a very shallow area where you can stand in waist deep water and interact with these amazing creatures. To minimize crowds, we so suggest late afternoon for stops at this location after the departure of cruise ship crowds. We do also want to note that as our boats are very large sailboats that require 6 feet of water, we anchor slightly off the sandbar so a short swim, usually about 20-25m, to the very shallow water is required.
Stingray City is a 10-12 foot deep snorkelling site in the northeast corner of North Sound (though Stingray Sandbar is often also referred to as Stingray City). Far less crowded than the popular cruise ship tours to Stingray Sandbar further to the east, Stingray City allows you a chance to swim and interact with these beautiful creatures in an expanse of crystal clear turquoise water far from crowds.

Places to See With Point Blue Sailing: Seven Mile Beach
If you plan to spend all day with us, a sail around the island to Seven Mile Beach is an option allowing you to experience a longer sail and to explore some of the great snorkelling sites off this world famous beach, including the Kittiwake Shipwreck. Depending on the wind, it usually takes three to four hours to sail around. We offer one way sails, so you have half a day of sailing and half a day of swimming, sun, and sand. Note: availability is subject to weather.
Things to do With Point Blue Sailing: Blue Water Sailing
For the more adventurous, Point Blue Sailing will take you out of the North Sound for a sail in the Caribbean Sea north of Grand Cayman. Try some casual fishing or a snorkel over the wall just outside the coral reef where the water drops from 60 to 18,000 feet. Captain Dean will be happy to have any honorary crew who may like to try their hand at sailing!
Places to See With Point Blue Sailing: Booby Cay
Booby Cay is a .5 square mile island just southwest of Kaibo and Starfish Point, named for the birds that are its only inhabitants. The channel that separates Booby Cay from the mainland is part of the protected marine environment where all swimming and water activities are banned as it is a nesting ground for many of Cayman’s sea creatures, including turtles and stingrays. There is a very soft current that slowly drifts through the channel and gives you a real experience of Cayman’s natural wetlands.
