Questions on Boatswain’s Marine Park Excursion – Grand Cayman


Feb 25, 2000
Is there a place to change into swimwear if you want to use the pool/lagoon after viewing the turtle farm/aviary, etc.?

Information from a previous Navigator states: “Towels are furnished for water based excursions.” Where do you get the towels? Are they left in your room or given to you when you meet for the excursion?

The times listed for the Boatswain’s Excursion is 9:20 – 3:05. Are you on your own to go back to the ship when you finish exploring the park? Or is a group thing and the bus leaves at 3:05 and everyone goes back together?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, there are bathrooms with changing areas to change at Boatswains Adventure Park. If you do this through DCL, towels will be available when you meet on the ship before you tender to shore. Otherwise, you can get towels on deck 9 to bring with you.

You meet at 9:20 AM, you get on a tender to the dock where you are met by DCL CMs. You are then handed off to Park employees who will put you on busses to the park. At a specific time, after you visit the park, you will then load the same busses back to the pier to get a tender back to the boat. You will have plenty of time to get back to the ship before All Aboard.

You also get vouchers for lunch with this excursion. The park is relatively small and can be easily enjoyed in the time allotted. You can check out my trip report for more info about the park.
