GRAND CAYMAN DIVING HOLIDAYS
Diving Holidays In Grand Cayman
500 years ago Christopher Columbus was luckily blown off course on one of his voyages, and instead of landing on Hispaniola he discovered the Cayman Islands. Back then the island was patrolled by giant sea turtles, hence the original name 'Tortugas'. Since those days a lot has changed, giant turtles no longer call the shots, and humans discovered the beautiful island and it's stunning dive sites. Yet the feeling of a bare tropical island still remains, with miles of uninterrupted beaches, and no big cities or crazy nightlife.
Diving here you will find some beautiful reefs, wrecks, and marine life. It’s a great place for a really relaxing holiday, with classy restaurants, delicious food and dinner cruises boasting amazing sunsets to spice up the evenings. The Cayman Islands is definitely a great place to take your partner.
