1. Take a private charter with Mainstay Sailing
Not your typical stingray charter, Jon Dobbin and the crew of Mainstay Sailing bring the luxury of a fully staffed, fully loaded power catamaran directly to you. With all the bells and whistles, there’s a spacious fly bridge with wet bar, four air conditioned double cabins ideal for catching some zzzs and kneeboards, kayaks and fishing gear for some good old fashioned fun. For the ultimate adventure, go for an overnight trip. The yacht is equipped with satellite cell and data link so Mum will know you’re safe.
2. Learn how to kitesurf
If Dad is the sporty type, go for gold with a kitesurf lesson in the morning with Jhon and team at Kitesurf Cayman - the warm shallows of Barkers National Park provide the ideal conditions for learners and the experienced alike. Go early and look out for a jumping eagle ray! No kidding! Seal the deal with post kite session refuel at Agua. The grilled entrana is one of the best steak and frites we’ve ever experienced. Ask mixologist extraordinaire and Cayman Islands 2019 World Class bartender of the year Cory Scruggs to whip you up one of his competition aperitifs.
3. Experience the ultimate helicopter adventure
Got an adrenaline junkie on your hands? Win Offspring Of The Year with a dine and dive package from Cayman Islands Helicopters. This full day adventure includes stops at all 3 islands – Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, and promises the experience of a lifetime with some of the best wreck and reef diving in the world. Price includes beachside private dining in Little Cayman and sunset drinks back at home base. Go all out for Dad this year and finish it off with dinner at Le Vele. Alfresco dining as the sun descends on this wonderful Italian eatery makes you feel like that sunset was just for you and is a must-do on anyone’s Best Day EVER list. Open Monday to Saturday (closed on Sundays) be sure to call ahead to secure your table.
4. Dine under the stars at Kaibo’s Lune Del Mar
Beat the rush and get in early with a surprise beachside dinner. Chill island style at Kaibo’s Luna del Mar on Friday 14 June 2019 for an unforgettable experience under the stars. A 3-course sharing feast with sky lanterns at midnight, this is beach chic at it’s finest. Reservations essential. For an added touch of special, go all out this Father’s Day and treat Dad to a bioluminescent tour after dinner. Ask Tom from Cayman Kayaks to take you into Grand Cayman’s very own bio bay to see Mother Nature’s spectacular underwater lightshow in action. Just around the corner from Kaibo, you’ll be back in time for the dancing.
5. Chill on the beach
The ultimate day out with dad that can’t be beat goes to….hanging out at Smith Cove (aka Smith Barcadere). Fill the cooler (the boys and girls at 1981 Brewing Co. do a superb IPA packed with tropical pep), pack some snacks and plenty of reef-safe sunscreen, settle into the beach chairs and kick back for the day. Go early to find the best spot. Stay late to enjoy the vibes and Sunday like a local.
