KAYAKING IN NORTH SIDE An hour away from the hustle and bustle of busy Seven Mile Bach, tranquil North Side is the perfect place to kick back and relax. If you want to do something different, try an eco-tour of the protected mangroves in a nature preservation zone. These tours are led and narrated by experienced guides. You paddle your own kayak while drifting through the shady inlets, and enjoying the underwater life. You are sure to see turtles, lobsters and large starfish. This two hour tour is suitable for adults and older children. The kayaks are easy to maneuver and one doesn't have to be particularly fit to enjoy the event. You can also take a night tour, called a bio-iridescent tour when algae illuminates the plant and water life. The tour departs from the Kaibo, where there is a large, clean public park, You can easily combine the tour with a picnic or snorkeling off the shore. This is also the best place on Cayman for shelling. If you are looking for a fun activity to share with teenagers or children 10 years and above, this is a fun choice and educational as well.
