Cayman Islands Sights

Blowholes

Updated 07/18/2014

Fodor's Review

When the easterly trade winds blow hard, crashing waves force water into caverns and send impressive geysers shooting up as much as 20 feet through the ironshore. The blowholes were partially filled during Hurricane Ivan in 2004, so the water must be rough to recapture their former elemental drama.

Still Out of Commission Due to Hurricane

We visited the island in February and the blow holes are barely blowing. We were told that debris had clogged the holes during the hurricane a year and a half ago, and they are just now clearing out. Maybe in a few more months they will be something to see, but for now skip them and enjoy the rest of the island.
