Default Grand Cayman-Tender

Hello, do you have to tender in Grand Cayman, and how long does it take for the whole process?

Grand Cayman tenders generally take about 30 minutes each way - it isn't far to the docks; this includes time waiting for the tender to fill up; it isn't that bad; but it is hot waiting in the tender for it to fill up - I cheat and wait in the shade until I see the tender just about to get full - also wait on the ship and watch for the tender to be close to capacity before getting off the ship.

I agree with Martha. Not as bad an experience as it seems.

Here is a tip....if you want to get on the first tender, book an early shore excursion. We were on the first tender and on the bottom of the sea long before 8:00. Seatrek was FANTASTIC!
If you are going to walk on thin ice, you may as well dance!
