“A quick bit of history”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

You can view this in about 5 minutes. There is a couple of cannons and some signs to read. If your walking through the city and aren't pressed for time or doing an excursion it is interesting but I wouldn't visit it a second time.

“Wish there was more.”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

I understand this site got rescued from the ravages of a developer in the 70's. Too bad it didn't get rescued sooner. It has good signage and portions of the fort remain for you to use your imagination on.

“THE HEROES & CREATORS- CI FINANCIAL SUCCESS STORY - THIS MUCH TREASURED MONUMENT TO THE HEROIC CAYMAN ISLANDS SEAFARERS”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

Historical Government Reports dated 1924, 1939 and Census of 1937 cite references to the Cayman Islands National Financial Success Outcomes being entirely reliant upon and as an outcome result of the Nation's Dependency upon the Heroic Cayman Islands Seafarers and their earnings:

Earliest Mention in Financial Reporting related to the primary financial success outcome being due to:

"The economic impact of the remitted wages of the Cayman Islands Seamen in Every Port in the World" These Bravest Heroes of All Time The Cayman Islands Seafarers Monument is an absolute Must See and Photograph #1 MUST DO LIST. The very core of the Cayman Islands is its Best in the World Seafarers who traversed the world by sea using a Sextant and the Stars and overcame hardships, hurricanes at sea and loss with the Bravest Strength on Earth. A Maritime lover's dream come true - Also recommend visiting the Seafarers Association Building for a tour of the actual Maritime History and to hear the amazing stories of sheer strength and bravery from the Seafarers themselves. Cayman Islands Most Treasured Heroes who are the absolute Jewels in the Crown of the Cayman Islands. See the amazing monument and meet the most amazing Mariners on Earth, The Cayman Islands Seafarers - a memory of the Cayman Islands you will enjoy for your lifetime as they are truly One of a Kind - The Best in the World. Also try to catch a ride in a Catboat for an experience that all boat lovers and boat builders will never forget. Majestic schooners and the world famous Catboats were are are built in the Cayman Islands therefore the boatbuilding aspects of the local Maritime History are many and thoroughly recommended as MUST DO MUST MEET MUST SEE items on your List for everyone visiting or living in the Caribbean Region.

“nothing there”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Fort George is a spot of ground and that's about it. The national museum which is just on the other side of the road is much better.
