The reason I’m asking is that I’m planning my wedding there, and I’m wondering that if I wear a veil, is it likely to be wrapping itself around my head, or taking off down the beach, when I’m saying my vows (lol)
Any comments ?
Love your name!
That’s the exact same time that we go to Cayman each year, and all I can say is that the weather is usually just perfect! Highs in the mid to high-eighties and lows in the 70’s…….but, I do have to say that sometimes (not often) there have been Norwester’s that have come through at that time, but don’t worry about that. That would mean a day or so of disruption, due to some rain and high surf or whatever for a day or so, but it really doesn’t affect your vacation much. The rain doesn’t last long, but sometimes the waves are up for a few days. If you are a diver, you’ll lose one day of diving (at the most!) since the dive boats just move to the side of the island where the seas are calm.
But please know, in my 23 years of vacationing in Cayman at the end of February, we’ve probably only experienced 4 or 5 Norwesters, so please don’t even worry about that……
As far as parasailing, we recommend Parasailing Professionals, which you can read about here ……
Hope this helps,

Thank you Sue……..I am so direction poor…….so when they are from the northwest which part of the island do they come in on and then later effect? I know, dumb question….
When the wind is out of the northwest (upper left corner of the page) the harbor in George Town and often a large portion of SMB is impacted with big waves. Normally the wind comes out of the northeast (upper right corner of the page) and SMB and George Town are protected.
How do you know when one is approaching?
1. Watch the weather channel
2. Ask any old fisherman on the island.
Trying to get familiar with everything again…
Yes, I think I’ll ask a fisherman.
In the whole month that we were there—mid dec. to mid jan. we had some windy days—which are kind of nice-relieves the heat, one really rainy day and one day with some rain. Not bad for 30 days. Sure wish I was back there now, no matter what the weather is there!
I’ve been there in February too and the weather was excellent!
Make sure you get to the Botanic Garden-you’re pretty close to it! They also have an iguana tour that I’ve never been to, but thought I might like to do that one of these years. You’d have to check the times and days for that.
Also we took a guided tour thru the Mastic Trail and I thought it was very interesting. You’re pretty close to where they start the tour too. It’s thru the Cayman National Trust.
Hope you have a wonderful time.
