Why you'll love diving in Cayman-islands!

  • Exciting wall dives on the edge of the Cayman Trench
  • Safe wreck dives on the Captain Keith Tibbetts and the Kittiwake
  • First class, professional diver training and Underwater photography schools

The low lying Cayman Islands are the visible peaks of a submarine range rising 7,000 meters from the Cayman trench, the Caribbean's deepest point. Just a short hop from Florida they have a cosmopolitan blend of Caribbean, American and British influences.

The deep waters surrounding the Cayman Islands, plus the lack of rivers flowing out to sea, means water visibility is generally excellent. This factor, combined with Cayman's strict conservation policies, means fringing coral reefs flourish. To dive the Cayman Islands you can take a shorebased holiday on Grand Cayman and time permitting extend your stay with a few nights on Cayman Brac or Little Cayman. Alternatively a Cayman Islands liveaboard safari allows you to dive all 3 Cayman Islands without repacking your gear.

The Cayman Islands are an island group in the Caribbean Sea, ninety miles south of Cuba. The beautiful coral reefs and outstandingly clear waters have made this island group a favorite destination of divers. Great beaches and fine restaurants and resorts make it an excellent tourist destination as well. Quirks aside, the basic charm of the Cayman Islands is quite similair to other Caribbean destinations: beaches, diving, fishing and all the basic water activities. There's trendy hotels, resorts and condos, with enough tourists to match.

Cayman diving means crystal clear 80–100 foot visibility on every single dive. The Caymans are world famous for their wall diving. These breathtaking drop offs have tunnels and swim-thrus, starting as shallow as 40 feet. The shallow reef system extends from shore and builds up to meet the edge of the wall. Outstanding conditions abound for newly certified or experienced divers. The marine life that you will see on your dives is nothing short of amazing. It is common to see turtles feeding, sleeping nurse sharks, moray eels, eagle rays, stingrays, lionfish, angelfish, squid, peacock flounders and a plethora of tropical fish on every Cayman scuba diving trip. Unforgettable shallow reefs and wrecks are home to healthy corals and sponges with a vast expanse to explore.

The Cayman Islands have a perfect climate with warm and humid weather with almost constant sea breezes. Temperatures hoover around 28 °C to 30 °C during the day and 24 °C at night. The months of June to September are slightly warmer. During these months, extending into November is the rainy season on the other hand, with a small chance of a hurricane passing by now and then. December to April is the dry and slightly cooler period which is a good but popular time to visit. May and November are good months to visit if you want to avoid crowds, high prices and very bad weather.

Consider fishing, paddle boarding, or kayaking. For those that feel more adventurous, enjoy jet ski, parasailing, and kiteboarding in clear Caribbean waters, all year-round. And for those looking for the optimal caribbean holidays experience, there's no better way to explore the Cayman Islands than diving and snorkelling. With some of the most exciting dive and snorkelling in the Caribbean, visitors come from all over the world to enjoy diving in the underwater world in the Cayman Islands. Whether you're looking to swim with the beautiful wildlife or explore a sunken ship, Cayman Islands diving is the best in the Caribbean.

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.

On the 10 mile square Little Cayman Island the iguana out number the residents. World renowned for the northern wall, particularly Little Cayman's Bloody Bay Wall. Here the reef starts at 6 metres and plunges into the depths. There are caves, tunnels and chimneys with a fascinating array of marine life. With visibility often over 50 metres it is easy to spot the pelagics as they cruise by. With little or no current this is truly World Class diving in season. During the winter winds can shift to the North east restricting boat access to the southern shores but lee ward sites are still accessable.
The least developed and the smallest and most tranquil of the three Cayman Islands, Little Cayman epitomises the definition of “an island getaway.” This beautiful island offers seclusion and striking scenery everywhere you look, making it the perfect honeymoon island and a top Caribbean destination.
With a population of less than 170, most of Little Cayman remains uninhabited. Only ten miles long and one mile wide, this island getaway offers you a rare combination of sun-drenched solitude, glistening beaches, and miles of untouched tropical wilderness.
