Cayman Islands Scuba Diving

There are an endless number of reasons that Grand Cayman scuba diving is some of the best in the world, and all you need to do is make your first dive into our crystal turquoise waters to understand it for yourself – whether you’re a first timer looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, or an advanced diver in search of the latest thrill.

But if you’re weighing your options from the mainland, you might need  some more information to help you select the best options for scuba diving vacations (spoiler alert: We think it’s here in Grand Cayman).

The Cayman Islands are a well-known world-class dive destination, and it’s got a little bit of everything, from eye-catching underwater wrecks, coral reefs which you can explore with little to no wave current, and deep drop-offs – we’re talking 6,000 feet deep. Not to mention that you can go scuba diving in Grand Cayman all year round.

Plus, scuba diving vacations are always more enjoyable when you can see spotted eagle rays and sea turtles – just in case you thought our marine life was limited to colorful fish and stingrays. But when we talk about eye-catching underwater wrecks, for instance, we mean it. Consider the USS Kittiwake, a sunken 251-foot WWII vessel, which remains fully intact and
upright at 60 feet deep, an approachable depth for nearly all levels of divers.

When we mention coral reefs, we have some rare species’ of coral, and patterns and colors that are as breathtaking as they are unique. And when we talk deep drops, well, we have wall diving right into an underwater mountain range that surrounds the Cayman Islands. There are walls for advanced divers, and even wall dives for beginners with Ocean Frontiers– including the famed Bloody Bay Wall on Cayman that has rainbow-colored walls.

We haven’t even mentioned that Grand Cayman is home to one of the most famous stingray encounters in the world, at Stingray City and Stingray Alley. Make sure you clear time for that, as well, on your scuba diving vacation to the Cayman Islands.
