Camana Bay offers hurricane parking to all Grand Cayman residents

With hurricane season now upon us, it’s time to complete all of the necessary preparations to ensure that your assets are protected in the event of a storm. Having a plan for your vehicle is essential and you can check this off your list by pre-booking a secure space for a nominal fee in Camana Bay’s Solaris parking garage.

“During Hurricane Ivan in 2004 many thousands of cars were lost during the storm,” said Derek Haines, Senior Manager for Health, Safety & Security, Dart Cayman Islands. “By pre-booking a space at Camana Bay you are effectively buying an insurance policy for your vehicle so that when a storm approaches you are guaranteed a safe place to park it on high ground.”

Due to the limited number of secure parking spaces available, Dart Realty is offering them to the public on a first come, first served basis. To register, the owner of the vehicle must complete a form that provides details on their vehicle and a waiver. Once this is received, along with payment, Camana Bay will provide the owner with a tag for their vehicle and instructions on where and when they can drop their vehicle off should a storm approach the area.

Derek also made it clear that owners will not be able to access their vehicle once it has been dropped off.

“We literally park them end to end, up and down the ramps of the garages so it will take time to transport all of them in and then back out again after the ‘All Clear’ has been given,” he explained.

Residents should also be aware that they need to have their own transportation arranged to take them back home or to a shelter after they drop their vehicle off at Camana Bay.

To request a registration form, please email [email protected] or call 640.4000. The signed and completed forms along with the non-refundable payment of $100 can be dropped off at The Discovery Centre in Camana Bay or mailed to P.O. Box 31135, Grand Cayman, KY1-1205. Cash or cheques are accepted.
