The new Seaworld Observatory is a state-of-the-art semi-submarine developed for comfort and maximum viewing in the shallow reefs. The vessel does not submerge. You descend into the hull of this cruising underwater observatory and sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the surface of the water. As you explore you'll see an abundance of marine life through large, clear windows. Seaworld Observatory departs from the dock right by the cruise ship dock in downtown George Town. The first site you visit is a dramatic shipwreck, the Cali, a steel schooner built in 1900. This ship ran aground 100 yards off the coast of Grand Cayman in 1944.
From here, your Captain takes you to Cheeseburger Reef. Be sure to have your cameras ready when our diver enters the water and begins to feed the hundreds of multicolored tropical fish right in front of your window. A knowledgeable marine expert will provide answers to your questions and informational narration on the amazing underwater world around you. Hear more tales of the high seas as on your way to see the wreck of the Balboa. The Balboa a 375 foot freighter was traveling from Cayman to Cuba when she encountered one of the worst hurricanes in the island's history on November 10, 1932. The Seaworld Observatory then brings you back to the dock in the heart of George Town.
