Cayman Islands have colorful marine life in its shallow water reefs. The West side of the island is shaped where there is calm seas as if ready to water ski. The barrier reef is protected since the late 1980's where marine life has furished. Any tour will result in great sightings of reef fish, sting rays, lobsters, and even an occasional turtle.
