General Information – Dolphin Program, Transportation, Attractions & More

Grand Cayman Dolphin Program is very convenient for cruise ship passengers and island guests alike. This Caribbean jewel is very affluent, clean and still has a wonderful island feel about it. The Dolphin facility is only 15 minutes from Georgetown and across the road from the Turtle Farm. If you are short on time or have plenty of time, you can come play and have fun with the dolphins in a few hours and still have time to explore more of this wonderful island.

Cruise Ship Passengers

Many guests that come to Grand Cayman arrive by Cruise Ship. If you are one these guests, you need to remember a few things.

  • The program times you pick are based on Island time, not ship time. So if you are leaving from a ship from the Eastern ports, like Miami or Ft Lauderdale, Grand Cayman time is 1 hour behind the ships time.
  • Transportation – There are plenty of taxis from the Cruise port to take you to the Dolphin Facility across the street from the turtle farm. Important: make sure to tell the taxi driver you are going to the facility across the street from the turtle farm. There is another dolphin facility on the island and you don’t want to go to the wrong place.
  • The Cruise Ship in Grand Cayman docks off shore and you will need to take a tender (small transportation boat) from your ship to the shore’s dock in Georgetown. So plan on travel time back and forth to your ship. There are usually lines to get back on the tender to go back to your ship.
