Turtles, Turtles and More Turtles – Grand Cayman

IMG_0013

Our second port on our Carnival Magic Cruise was Grand Cayman. The last time we were there we did the turtles and the dolphins. We had so much fun at the Turtle Farm we decided to go again. Apparently everyone in Grand Cayman that day had read my raving review of the turtle farm too. It was so packed we couldn’t even hear our tour guide. The turtles were still adorable though. Once the tour part was over we were able to go off on our own and the crowds seemed much better.

The difference between this excursion and the dolphin/turtle combo was that this one included lunch, you could swim with the turtles and you had access to their water park. Snorkeling with the turtles was Megan’s favorite part of the trip. I had to skip that part because Taylor refused to swim with fish. :/ The food was awful.

The water park…

The girls favorite part of lunch…watching the chickens. They got a lot of food from us since we didn’t eat much of it.

I didn’t think I was ever going to get Taylor away from the turtle pens.

Iguanas were everywhere. On the ground, in the trees, on the buildings… This was a baby one.

Apparently this has been a problem in the past…

Grand Cayman is a tender port. It was the most miserable tender ever. It was hot, humid, we were surrounded by drunk people, and there was a storm coming in. Those 4 things don’t go well together at all. The water was so rocky, they had trouble docking the tender boats to the ship. So we were stuck on the tender boat in the rocky water with drunk people throwing up all around us. One girl was so intoxicated she had to be brought on in a wheelchair after she collapsed. Fun, fun times!
