It’s one of Cayman Brac’s star attractions – a striking limestone bluff rising dramatically above the sea.
Ideal for nature lovers and adventurers, avid rock climber David Verhoeven says scaling the Bluff is a unique and educational experience. One of his favorite spots is the climb at Lighthouse Point where the Bluff falls directly into the sea.
“[With] booby birds and frigates flying overhead, waves crashing beneath you, and a sea breeze at your back – you are directly connected with nature while you are climbing,” he says.
Fueled by their passion for the rugged beauty of the Brac, David and his brother William Verhoeven, along with fellow climbing enthusiast Angel Robledo, launched Rock Iguana Ltd. in 2016. It’s Cayman’s first and only rock climbing and adventure tourism company.
“This small island is home to some of the best rock climbing in the world,” says David. “The rugged and towering limestone cliffs are unforgettable.”
Rock Iguana offers tour packages aimed at a variety of skill levels, from advanced to newcomers. Along with scaling the 140-foot Bluff, it offers rappelling adventures and climbs, including exploring ancient caves.
The company recently introduced The Yogi Wall, featuring outdoor yoga classes by the majestic Bluff to one side and the azure Caribbean Sea to the other. The Yogi Wall will be officially launched on the weekend of April 5 to 7.
