Seaworld Explorer, Semi-Sub Reef & Shipwreck Expedition with Fish Feeding
The Seaworld Observatory is a state-of-the-art semi-submarine developed for comfort and maximum viewing of the shallow reefs. The vessel does not submerge; instead you descend into the hull of this cruising underwater observatory and sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the surface of the water.
Seaworld Observatory departs from the dock right by the cruise ship in George Town.
As you explore you will view an abundance of marine life through large, clear windows.
See the dramatic shipwreck, the Cali -- a steel schooner built in 1900. This ship ran aground 100 yards off the coast of Grand Cayman in 1944.
Your captain turns the vessel towards Cheeseburger Reef. Have your camera ready when a diver enters the water and begins to feed the hundreds of multicolored tropical fish right in front of your window.
A knowledgeable marine expert will provide answers to your questions and informational narration on the amazing underwater world around you.
Hear tales of the high seas as the Seaworld Observatory takes you to see the wreck of the Balboa -- a 375-foot freighter that was traveling from Cayman to Cuba in 1932 when she encountered one of the worst hurricanes in the island’s history.
The Seaworld Observatory then brings you back to the dock in the heart of George Town.
Tour is available only on select sailings.
