Grand Cayman Hell Excursion Reviews

Visit Hell -- a group of short, black, limestone formations located in Grand Cayman. It’s touristy, but it’s a must-do (and a great photo op for your cruise scrapbook).
Short stop.
Sail Date: May 2019
Short stop. Not much to look at. You can have your passport stamped from here. Mostly gift shops capitalizing on the name.

Hell is cute but it's a 5 minute tourist stop. The Tortuga rum cake factory is too but the rum and cake are worth it. We also visited 7 fathoms rum distillery....at 9 am!

It wasn't much. But I was told I could now say I've been to Hell and back. I replied that I've been there and back several times already.

Amvivo was the tour operator and the tour was book through Viator. Our ship docked late and Amvivo did not answer their phone when we tried to call. It took three attempts. 35 minutes after the excursion depart Amvivo answered and said the tour had left. When I asked for a refund because they had not answered, I was told 50%. When I threatened to leave negative reviews, like this one, they agreed to 100%. Read the other reviews for yourself though. You will see I am not the first person to state they do not answer their phone. Read Less

Been here and used to stay on the island and dive so pretty familiar. We just wanted to do something so they took us to Hell (been there--no big deal) and the dolphin place. It really depressed me because they have such a small enclosure. Kind of like if you were relegated to a 15x15 cell and had to do tricks for your food. Their enclosure should be at least the size of a bay in a natural sandy bottom. The only one I have liked is at Anthony's Key where they have an entire bay that is acres in size and it the actual ocean. I found this place woefully depressing to me. Read Less

Our tour guide was Joseph. He was awesome. Very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Some how we were always behind so cut back on our stop times. We went to Hell first. Only had 10 mins. Could have used 20. It is really cool to look at. Then went to the turtle farm. Again only had 30 mins but needed more. We were able to see the giant breeding turtles and the smaller ones and even hold them. Then went to swimming with the sting rays. AWESOME. My youngest was scared of the being stung so stayed on boat, but rest had a great time. Waist high water and they swim all around your legs wanting food. The guide caught one and you could take pics with it. Best tour ever. Read Less
