    "So maybe you are scared off by the fancy name or the fact that you need to get to Rum Point but it is worth it. Take advantage of their cheap shuttle service. You have the option of taking kayaks or the custom made electric boat. We took the boat and we were very happy we did. The owner (Tom) was the captain of our boat and we not only were amazed at the Bioluminescent creatures but also his stories about the area and his company. I strongly encourage you to support this small business person as well as learn something new. There are only a few places in the world where you can see this effect."

    "My husband and I really enjoyed the nighttime bioluminescent kayak tour and it was worth the drive from West Bay to Rum Point. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. A Cayman native, it was obvious that his interest in and passion for the island's aquatic ecosystem was from the heart and his enthusiasm was infectious. The bioluminescence was amazing. Just beautiful! It was incredible to paddle through the dark water under a starry moonless sky as plumes of electric blue unfurled around us. I still carry the image of dipping my hand in the water and watching arcs of sparkles trail from my fingertips like diamonds. Again, just a magical experience and a beautiful evening. Cayman Kayaks is a thoroughly professional operation. We were impressed. We'd go again in a heartbeat. "

    "The staff are incredibly knowledgeable about the marine environment and even the milky way star tour was fantastic! What a great time had by all, especially my wife and I. Highly professional and worth every cent to see this incredible phenomenon in the setting. We did the eco friendly electric bio boat at 8pm and we couldn't be happier that we did. Don't miss it. Reserve early and go see it firsthand. Thanks for the memories Tom and Cayman Kayaks."

    About Us

    Tom and Lisha Watling are the owners and operators of Cayman Kayaks in the Cayman Islands. Cayman Kayaks is the only company that is completely Eco Friendly with each of the tours we operate.

    We started paddling with our guests through Caymans wetlands and the fascinating Bioluminescent Bay in 2006. Our guests have the unique opportunity to paddle and now go by electric boat in the rare Bioluminescent bay, that glows as our hands, feet and paddles interact with the microscopic organisms in the bay. This adventure with Cayman Kayaks can only be described as magical, creating memories that will last a lifetime!

    Tom grew up in Cayman Islands, where he developed a lifelong passion for the water and its marine life. After years of experiences; sailing the Caribbean Sea,

    diving in the ocean and surfing the waves, Tom never pictured himself sitting in a kayak being a tour guide. However, it did not take much time for Tom to enjoy being on the water in a kayak. Tom will share his extensive and sensitive knowledge of the bioluminescent bay ecology as well as a wealth of information about the flora and fauna inhabiting the mangroves. You will love having a local guide to share his stories of growing up in Cayman. His goal is to make sure that all Cayman Kayaks guests enjoy the best of Cayman Islands natural resources in safe and professionally guided tours.

    Lisha is originally from Canada, and did not hesitate when she was offered a job in the Cayman Islands. She will help you make your reservation a smooth process and will gladly assist you with any questions you have regarding the tour, places to eat and other things to do on island. Lisha’s passion for protecting nature and her experience in business administration, makes Tom and Lisha the perfect pair for Cayman Kayaks.

    David also grew up in the the Cayman Islands, having moved here with his family at the tender age of 7. From their extensive involvement in local conservation efforts, he inherited a deep appreciation of nature- both above and below the waves.

    Motivated by a passion for the outdoors and a desire to help spread awareness and enjoyment of Cayman's ecology, he has worked a variety of eco-tourism ventures as well as being involved with many local conservation volunteer initiatives. Relaxed & enthusiastic, he strives to deliver clear, safe, enjoyable tours that leave you with a cherished memory and an enhanced understanding of the local environment.
