Fish Market by the Sea
Local Fishermen Sell Their Fresh Catch Daily

On a short walk North of the cruise ship terminals, right in the heart of the George Town Harbour area, you'll see the local fishermen cleaning their morning catch. Snapper, Triggerfish, Mahi Mahi, are just a few of the available fish for sell by the pound. If you are staying on Grand Cayman, this is a great source of local fresh fish for your dinner. If you are only ashore for the day, it is still a treat to meet the fishermen, and to hear their local accents as they tell you their fishing tales.
