THE DIVING

From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced diving with us has stated that Cayman’s East End is one of the Caribbean’s premier dive spots. Offering, pristine reefs, breathtaking wall dives, excellent visibility and incredible diving.

The Cayman Islands have strict marine conservation laws to protect the underwater environment. Many of our 55 dive sites are within a short boat ride, including the legendary Jack McKenny’s Canyons – one of East End’s famous dive sites.

Here, coral and canyons and sand chutes lead you thorough into pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6,000ft. These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. The 80 -86 of water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater photographs are taken in the Cayman Islands than in all other Caribbean destinations.

The Caymans’ trademark turtles are common sight and eagle rays, angelfish, reef sharks and grouper count among the 500 species of fish that have been documented here.

Our onsite dive operator - Ocean Frontiers are delighted to introduce you to the spectacular diving of the East End and to ensure they you have a safe and enjoyable dive experience. The Dive Shop offers comprehensive training, a retail store, fresh water rinsing tanks and a dive gear storage area

Dive sites are chosen by the Captain every trip and are not decided until that day. There are several factors that influence their choice; wind, current and visibility. As we want you to have the most enjoyable dive possible. We will also check which sites you have already visited this dive trip so as not to repeat those, and if you do have any specific requested we will try to accommodate these.
