What Exactly is North Sound and Where is it Located?

North Sound is located on the northern side of Grand Cayman and is protected by a barrier reef. Stingray City, Starfish Point, and many great snorkeling spots are located in the North Sound. The barrier reef surrounding the North Sound creates protection from rough water making all of the mentioned locations enjoyable year-round. Some of the best snorkeling in Grand Cayman is located along the barrier reef of North Sound, the water is shallow and calm enough that even the least experienced snorkelers will enjoy it!

North Sound Grand Cayman Cruise

Upon leaving the dock we will immediately be cruising through the North Sound. To get to Starfish Point, Stingray City and snorkeling locations you must travel across the North Sound. Stingray City and many snorkeling locations are located in the middle of the North Sound and only accessible by boat, therefore boat is the preferred way to explore. For any of our charters you will be in the North Sound, surrounded by the island on 3 sides. A boat cruise in the North Sound makes for a very scenic day on the water! In order to make the most out of your charter experience we recommend at least a four hour charter so that you have plenty of time to explore all that the North Sound of Grand Cayman has to offer.
