Default early tenders in Gand Cayman?

We are on Sun Panama Feb 4th cruise and 8 of us have booked Captain Marvin's for 8:15 am Stingray City. Ship arrives at 7:00am. If we are ready to leave ship at 7:30, will they let us off on an early tender, or will we have to wait for everyone with a Ship booked tour to tender off? Most of the ship tours seem to leave the pier between 8:00 am and 9:00 am so I'm hoping they will let us off on an early tender. Anyone with any recent insight? KG

You will tender off AFTER the ship's tours. No problem... Captain Marvins and other private operators are quite used to this. No way you're getting off at 7:30 or 8... and no way C. Marvins expect you to be off!

Captain Marvin has several tours. Why not change your tour to a later one? Then you won't have to worry! We did Captain Marvin last week for the 10 AM to 1 PM tour. It was really great. We didn't get off the ship until 9AM.

Even though the ship arrives at 7AM, noone can leave until the ship gets cleared by the port. Then, the ship tours have priorty for the first tenders.

My advice is to change to a later booking for Captain Marvin.

I also did the later Capt. Marvin. I could just not see myself rushing around at 7:00 in the morning while on vacation. We had a nice breakfast & got off the ship about 9:30. We had 12 people on our trip vs the 20 on the earlier one.

How did you know about & arrange non-ship tours? We will be on the Grand 4/7 to W. Carib and would appreciate any advice you have. Also, we wondered about just renting a bike or scooter????
