Environmental & Social Responsibility
Our business depends on a healthy environment to be successful. Kayaking is a superb way to experience the beauty of our coastline and observe wildlife, or by use of electric motors. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness about the environment. Our highest priority is the care and preservation of the bioluminescent bay and the mangrove wetlands that we visit and enjoy. We only explore the Bio Bay by kayak or on our brand new custom built electric catamaran as the use of Fossil Fuel engines inside the Bioluminescent bay kills these fragile organisms. We encourage use of silent spots; kayaks, sup, paddleboat, sail boats and electric motors, in order to help with the preservation of this natural phenomenon for decades (generations) to come. Check out more information about our new Bio Boat Tour!
Join us in our pledge to protect our environment and fight against the possibility of dredging the bay... Cayman Bio Bay Petition
How you can do your part to protect and preserve the bay:
1. Bug repellent lotion & sprays kill the organisms! Cayman Kayaks is the only company that encourages the application of bug repellent without DEET in our Bio Bay Adventures. It’s been proven that regular, commercial bug repellents containing toxic ingredients like DEET, kills the bioluminescent microorganisms on contact. DEET is also known to cause neurological damage, and can be absorbed through the skin, entering the bloodstream. Cayman Kayaks promotes the use of organic insect repellent. We encourage all of our guests to shower or take a swim before the tour to bio bay to cut lotions and sprays from their skin!
2. Choose to explore the bio bay fuel free! Enjoy a leisure environmentally friendly electric boat tour or join for a kayak adventure to the magical glowing water!
