Grand Cayman/Native unsure about it all!

We will be going on the Fantasy Western at the end of May. My family has cruised 4 times but this will be our first time ever in a port where we tender. I've been reading and reading trying to get as much info as I can about how everything will go down with the tendering process so I can get an idea what time we'll actually be on the island at Grand Cayman. I've booked a private charter thru Native Way for my family and my brother's family. On the confirmation email this is what it said about the meeting time:

The tour departs the pier at 11:30 AM Central Daylight Saving Time (this is ship time). The tour completes at around 2:45 PM Central Daylight Saving Time. We ask that you check in no later than 11:15 AM Central Daylight Saving Time (this is ship time).

My problem is our itinerary gives our all-ashore time as 11:30. So, um, no idea how we'll make it to meet for the tour 15 minutes before we will be going ashore unless the ship routinely arrives early.

I sent an email back questioning the tour time. Really, we need to leave more like noon.

For those who booked themselves thru Native Way, where did you meet? Is it far from where the tenders let you off? Did your confirmations have time conflicts like this? I mentioned in my reservation request that we are coming in on the Disney Fantasy so I'm hoping they are taking the usual Fantasy schedule into account. Maybe there's something I'm missing. I don't know.

Has anyone else done the private charter with Native Way before? How did it go for you?
