Why Grand Cayman Is So Popular with Divers

The reasons are many:

Dive sites start close to shore in shallow water (25 to 60 feet).

A variety of dive experiences are available, for beginners as well as advanced divers.

Quality dive operations are found throughout the islands.

Instruction is readily available through any of the certification agencies (PADI, NAUI, SSI, NASDS, and YMCA).

Green sea turtles are often sighted on dives.

Scuba instruction is available in many languages.

Much of the marine life is approachable, such as the rays at Stingray City.

Visibility is excellent year-round.

The leeward side of each island ensures calm waters (dive operations are so confident of this that many guarantee diving 365 days a year).

Strict conservation laws have protected the reefs.

The Caribbean's oldest underwater photography school is located here.

A hyperbaric recompression chamber is available 24 hours a day.
