What exactly is a Zodiac?
A Zodiac is truly a generic name for this type of vessel.
Zodiac is "a brand name" (and a very fine brand at
pretty much the same as one asking for "a coke" in everyday jargon.
Zodiacs, or otherwise known as "ribs" in England, are inflatable
vessels with fiberglass hulls. This type of vessel, first
invented by the US Navy, provides a smooth ride over any type of
wave height. Because the North Sound is generally a very calm
protected area and a Rib which can travel at max speed over 25ft
waves (sometimes even bigger seas, this vessel is
used by search and rescue teams World Wide due to it's incredible
capabilities!) provides a super fast, extra smooth ride
over this super calm area in Grand Cayman. Powered by Twin
250 Horsepower Mercury Racing Engines and an incredibly shallow
draft passengers can be brought right on top of the Stingray City
Sandbar in as little as 2.5ft of water! Traveling where no other
vessel can travel at incredible speeds (clocked at over 55 MPH!!!)
this vessel truly adds excitement to your voyage!
All Zodiacs (Ribs) are different:
Because all Ribs are custom built not many are alike. Some are
custom built for Whale Watching, some custom built for the Coast
Guard for search and rescue, while some are built for passenger's
comfort and space, this being the case with our Rib. With a
long illustrious history this particular Rib was used for the French
Americas Cup in 1995 as a tendering vessel, used for the filming of
The Pirates of the Caribbean (That's right, Johnny Depp actually sat
on this boat!) as well as used for the Maxi Racing Yachts 80ft
sailing vessels. Did we also mention this boat is very, very
So, hold on to your hats during the speedy segments of this tour,
(From shore to Stingray City in under 10 minutes anyone?)
bring your camera for incredible photo opportunities, perfect for
children of all ages due to the vessel's setup, this is the
excursion you will never forget!

What is up with all the kids??
The pictures above were taken during the Tour tryout, Neil and Lynda
brought along their kids while myself and my wife Tracy had our 2
children. As with all excursions tryouts kids of all ages
are taken on excursions in order to assure compatibility for
families, safety for children as well as a tour rating from kids.
This particular tour received a two thumbs up from all children who
had blast cruising at Mach 5, as well as enthralled with the
stingrays, mangroves and the Iguanas. The beach stop was also
an exciting event for all, finding 5 starfish within seconds made
the hunt too easy!
This tour is perfect for families as well as a group of adults,
of course the boat's speed is adjusted according to the passenger's
makeup and age, but have to say that the children would not stop
screaming "FASTER!!!!" on the way back from this fantastic
