Sunsets in Grand Cayman are breathtaking—an otherworldly experience. If you’re planning a trip to Cayman, then you must experience at least one sunset on the water. In this post, we’ve put together a list of both group tours and private charter options for cruising the Caribbean sea at sunset. Take a look, and pick the one that best suits your style.

Group Tours

Red Sail Sports / Evening Tours

Red Sail Sports has the largest range of options when it comes to group sunset cruises. They offer six different group tours including:

Costs range per person from CI$20 for the Ferry to CI$115 for the Dinner Cruise. The Ferry and Wine cruises leave from Camana Bay, while the Dinner and Seven Mile Beach Sunset Cruise pickup at the Westin/Seafire beaches, the Stingray Sunset tour leaves from Safe Haven Marina and the Sunset Cruise from Rum Point of course leaves from none other than Rum Point.

Salt Watersports / Glass Bottom Boat Tours

Enjoy a unique sunset tour aboard a glass bottom boat with Salt Watersports Cayman. These cruises take place along Seven Mile Beach & George Town, and on Monday’s they pick up directly from our beachfront here at Christopher Columbus Condos! Monday doesn’t work? No worries, they offer pickups elsewhere along Seven Mile Beach throughout the week. Indulge in a breathtaking view of the sun setting on the crystal clear waters of Seven Mile Beach, see what's under the sea as you ride along and have a blast with great Caribbean tunes and a fun crew.

The cruise costs US$35 for adults and US$29 for kids.
