What to bring ashore
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We didn't need aqua shoes for Grand Cayman
Swim wear for the beach, a hat with a string that ties under your chin to protect you from the sun and that will stay on during the motor boat ride and a towel for when you get into the taxi to keep the seat dry or for the lounge chairs or the beach
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen is essential for me in Caribbean ports
Photo Equipment: I just bought a real waterproof camera, not the disposable kind, but a Panasonic Lumix. I was a little nervous the 1st time I put it underwater but it did fine on the whole trip
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you are planning on snorkeling from the beach, bring your own mask and snorkel unless you don't mind using a rental, if you go to a beach with food and drink, they should also have fins to rent
Miscellaneous: 7 Mile Beach has several places to drink and eat, we brought a bottle of water and some muffins from the ship which tided us over until we got back on
Every Caribbean port takes dollars in the shops, restaurants and for taxis, no need to change money. If you don't have exact change, you may get back some souvenir coins
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Flip flops, sneakers/tennis shoes, tank top, shorts, sunglasses, and bathing suit.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen, aloe gel or solorcaine, bandaids
Photo Equipment: for the average tourist: disposable camera, water camera
for someone who takes photographs as a hobby you might want a tri pod? well it gets pretty windy on the beaches

Dress Clothes only Please
Luggage and bags: Remember your weight limits on bagage - 50 pounds Domestic and 70 pounds International. Although I hear tell some of the Airlines are dropping the weight acceptable on International Flights to 50 pounds.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: 3 Pairs of shorts, 4 T-shirts, Sandals, and most importantly a couple of dress shirts to go with your dress shorts or for women a couple of sundresses. Resturants expect you to be dressed smart/casual. Sandals are acceptable as well as shorts, but please no T-shirts.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Only what you feel you must have. You can pick up almost anything here in the Cayman's, with the exception of your prescription medicine, so don't forget that.
Photo Equipment: Bring your digital or 35 mm for topside photo's and your underwater camera for diving or snorkling. Make sure you bring extra batteries for both unless you feel confident that your batteries are extremely common. Don't forget the battery charger!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Swimsuits!!! For you divers - bring all your gear, including your flashlight for night dives and most importantly bring your dive computer. Most dive shops allow you to dive your own profile with a pdc. For the snorkelers - fins, mask and snorkel should be your key, although you may want to obtain an underwater flashlight if you choose to do any night snorkeling.
Miscellaneous: A light jacket for the evenings during winter is also helpful. I'm glad I had mine after the sun went down.

Luggage and bags: Light and they check them by hand at the airport when you leave so get there in plenty of time!!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Casual
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: What you don't take you can get there......for a price...................
Miscellaneous: Cooler. The bar drinkd are expensive. Always go to the liquor store and make our own for the beach................
Lysol Household Size Cans
Luggage and bags: Whatever you do, please do not travel to Grand Caymen with a large can of Lysol Disinfect Spray. Your luggage will be searched by hand as security is checking to see if you are smuggling their seashells, plants, fruit, etc. They ask that if you want to transport Lysol Disinfect Spray, please use the smaller size cans recommended for travel.
Photo Equipment: The cheapest water camera is $10 in Georgetown at the Atlantis Submarine store. All other shops in the area sell them for $15 so you might want to buy your own before you go home.
