Introduction:

South Sound is a naturally protected body of water on the (fittingly) south side of Grand Cayman Island just east of Southwest Point. Though shallow and only usable by shoal-draft vessels, it is the only real protected area on the south side of Grand Cayman if you can get in. Proceed only with local knowledge and in fair weather.


Navigating the Water:

South Sound is shallow and only usable by boats with drafts of less than 3 feet. If you can get in, the sound has average depths of about 4 feet, and is well protected by the visible surrounding reef.

If you have already cleared customs, you can proceed toward Sand Cay (lighted) but watch out for Hastings Rock (unlighted). The best way to get in safely is to follow one of the local boats in through the west entrance (lower part of the image above), but be aware that this area is riddled with reefs and outcroppings.


Local Notices to Mariners:

See our “Local Notices to Mariners” blog for updates on the latest conditions and advisories for this area.


Transportation:

Owen Roberts International Airport is located about 2 miles southeast of the center of Georgetown on the southern side of North Sound. The airport has regularly scheduled commercial jet service from carriers like United, US Airways, American and Cayman Airways. Taxi cab service is available across much of the island and shuttle service can be arranged to/from by contacting the airport directly.
