My friends will be on the Inspiration and we will be on the Voyager this May. I am trying to arrange a snorkeling trip with Cptn. Marvin. The trip is supposed be over at 1:00pm and they will arrange a cab to be waiting to take us back to the pier,the Inspiration's last tender is at 1:30pm. Is this enough time?
I would not chance it. We were in Grand Cayman 2 years ago and some in our group almost didn't make it back on board. The stingray tour was late getting back to the pier and the only reason the ship (Carnival's Celebration) waited is because they were part of a Carnival-sponsored tour. The ship would not be required to wait for a private tour if it was running late. Stick with the ship-sponsored tour just to be safe ( they all go to the same sandbar anyway).
It depends on the traffic. Sometimes if there are a few more cruise ships that day it could cut you short. Ask Cpt. Marvin if you miss the last tender, if they will cover a personal high speed motor boat to catch the ship. Might be fun. Otherwise I would say its cutting it close because they are not always that organized. They ran late on the Stingray tour last time I was there Nov. 1999. Best snorkling by the way in the Caymans ooo==== Rix

Sounds like that will cut it a little too close for comfort, any chance to move the tour up a little??
I guess I will take your advice and let them go through their ship but I was hoping we all could do something together. Also, Cptn. Marvin goes to 3 different places, while the ship's excursion just goes to Stingray City.
