Mangrove Snorkel Tour and Bioluminescent Bay?

Mangrove Snorkel Tour and Bioluminescent Bay?

Hi everyone,

We’re visiting for ten days in late April/early May. In looking through the tour operators rated on TA, I found that Cayman Sea Elements advertises a mangrove snorkel tour, as well as a bioluminescent bay option. Both are highly rated. We are interested in both, particularly because they do not include a kayak portion.

Unfortunately, this tour operator has not replied to emails or calls asking for more information or how to book. I haven’t been able to find another company that offers a snorkel tour in the mangroves – this would be a brand-new experience for us, very different from regular snorkeling on the reefs.

Does anyone know a better way to get in touch with Sea Elements, or if there’s another tour operator that offers the same non-kayak options?

We went with Sea Elements on the Bioluminescent Tour and really enjoyed it. We spoke to them about the mangrove snorkel tour in USVI and it was amazing and different.

I would not hesitate to do the snorkel tour with them as its very different and really neat. They are a small operation and hence the not answering your email enquiry I bet.

I highly recommend the Bio-luminescent tour, it was amazing., like having magic at your fingertips. We have not done the mangrove tour, but heard great things about it from people who have done it with Cayman Sea Elements. I've always had luck contacting them via email.

Thank you all - I appreciated hearing your votes of confidence in Cayman Sea Elements. We did get an email reply this week, and we're now booked for the BioBay tour. They asked us to arrange the mangrove snorkel once we arrive next week. We are really looking forward to both!
