As the story goes, back in November 1794 ten merchant ships run aground on the coral reef just off the coast of East End. During this heavy storm, the inhabitants of the island risked their lives to rescue every crew member, without a single life being lost. It is said that one of those rescued was a royal prince to King George III. To show his gratitude to the people of Cayman, he declared that the Cayman Islands shall be free from taxation.
Although there is not much left of the wreck, this makes for a fun Kayaking adventure!
Caution: Be aware of the wind direction and start upwind from the wreck. We recommend you only use kayaks to reach this location. Before leaving, ensure you test your ability to climb back in to the kayak and your ability to paddle back in to the wind. If you are interested in this adventure, we strongly recommend discussing weather conditions with us beforehand.
