We accommodate families with ease…we keep the kids entertained with a plethora of water toys at their disposal including a kneeboard, tube, fishing gear, lobster snares (when in season) even a splash pool for the toddlers in the cockpit!
We have entertained weddings, renewing of the vows, engagements, corporate groups, disabled groups, kids birthdays, staff parties, hen nights (we even installed a dance pole for that one -mainly for our entertainment!).

DAY sail suggestions 9:30am – 4:30pm
With up to 20 people aboard our 45′ catamaran. Explore the north sound and snorkel the seven mile long barrier reef that extands from West Bay to Rum Point. Swim at the famous Stingray City and snorkel the other excellent underwater sites which, even on windy days, are sheltered from the outside sea.
Select your catering menu from one of our catering partners or go ashore to Rum Point or Kaibo Restaurant on the eastern side of north sound. Or simply choose a self provisioning system which gives you the flexibility of bringing whatever you like. After lunch we set sail again through the tranquil Booby Cay and then to find some more snorkeling sites on the reef. For the more adventurous we could sail outside of the reef and try some fishing.
If the conditions are right we could sail offshore and around the point of West Bay to Seven Mile Beach (approximately 2 and a half hours), to explore some more superb reef stops such as Devil’s Grotto or Cheeseburger Reef, near George Town. We have a towable for the thrill-seekers and can arrange kayaks, wave runners amd other water toys at the usual market rates. When on the west side, at the end of the day we can drop you off by dinghy anywhere along Seven Mile Beach. It is your day out so we make the suggestions and you make the choices.
New for day-sail guests… Dolphin and stingray safari. What a day !
HALF DAY sail 9:00am – 12:30pm or 2pm – 5.30pm (flexible)
With up to 20 people aboard our 45′ catamaran. The expansive North Sound is five minutes away from our dock at the Yacht Club and offers a sheltered playground for many water sports activities, including reef snorkeling, swimming with the stingrays or just relaxing aboard your own 45′ yacht. Imagine the photo opportunities. If you like, we will have enough time to head out offshore for a sample of deep blue sailing.
OVERNIGHT Charter 10:00am – 10:00am
6 persons max. A real adventure and plenty of time to do it all. Sail offshore to SMB, with some snorkeling along the way. A sunset sail or an evening sail with a bright moon is one of those magical experiences that you will not soon forget. Dinner can be aboard or ashore as we can anchor close to your choice of beachfront restaurant and take the dinghy ashore.
North Sound restaurants can include Kaibo, Rum Point, Calypso Grill, Morgans Harbour and restaurants at the impressive Camana Bay.
On Seven Mile Beach; Yoshi Sushi, Hemmingways, The Reef Grill, The Lobster Pot and Harveys.
“Cayman’s finest charter catamaran” -Jan Lederman (thanks!)
The Caribbean is one of the world’s most popular charter destinations and understandably so. The images readily pop into your mind’s eye, of warm blue seas, gleaming coral-sand beaches, gentle trade winds and you, lying on the deck of your own private yacht. Mainstay Sailing can take you there
To find us you need to get to a jewel of an island that needs little introduction – Grand Cayman.

We provide a flexible private charter service with a personal touch. Whether you require a day sail or a two night Cayman Explorer, we will do our best to shape an itinerary to suit you.
