Diving in Cayman Islands
The scuba diving in Cayman Islands offers some of the best diving in the Caribbean, most recently bringing home top honours in the 2012 Annual Top 100 and Gold List by Scuba Diving Magazine.
With water temperatures ranging between 26 and 28 degrees and visibility in excess of 100 feet most of the year, these warm, clear waters offer fun and excitement for divers of all skill levels. And with PADI instructors on the island, anyone can try it as long as they are fairly fit and can swim. Cayman diving is perfect for the novice and a challenge for the dive master.
The underwater scenery in the Cayman Islands is every bit as breathtaking as it is above the waves, and just as accessible. With stretches of magnificent coral reefs, underwater drop-offs, shipwrecks dating back to pirate times, and vertical wall dives, Cayman’s marine life is renowned, with an abundance tropical fish, turtles, colourful sponges and hard corals.
An extensive Marine Conservation Program protects the natural beauty of the Cayman Islands reef and waters. With close to two hundred listed dive sites between Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, and each island featuring different scuba-diving adventures, there is no need to do the same dive twice when on your Cayman Islands diving vacation.
