Everyone was lovely! They were willing to work around our mishaps (ship got in late), transportation was comfortable and reliable, Jordan was a fun and energetic guide. My horse, Chocolate Chip, was a sweetheart. We really loved the dog that tagged along for the ride & swim. I’d recommend the Spirit of the West Ride & Swim to anyone wanting to fully enjoy their stop on Grand Cayman.

It was totally amazing! A great experience to ride the horse in the clear open water. Done this before on other islands but this was far the BEST hands down. I will definately do it again when I come back. Basically had a private tour as it was just myself and the Son of the company on the tour. He was very informative about the island and his company. Everyone at home inn the state's was in awwww with the beautiful picture. Thank you so much for the great experience. I was there Sept 21, 2018 perfect weather.

Highly recommend Spirit of the West.

Jordan was our guide and he is very knowledgeable and makes every effort to accommodate everyone......regardless of their experience level. This was our second time to do this excursion and this time we swam with the horses. I can assure you that you will love this time spent on the back of a horse and on the beach to boot.
