Grand Cayman

Kittiwake Coast

 

Where we are diving

With its great visibility, colorful swim-throughs, and amazing shipwrecks, it’s no wonder the Cayman Islands are known as a world-class dive destination. The diverse array of underwater attractions makes Grand Cayman a great place for beginners and advanced divers. With over 200 dive sites, you’re bound to see a few sea turtles, nurse sharks, and stingrays.

Along the shallow sandbars in the North Sound of Grand Cayman lies Stingray City. At only 12 feet deep, this area is the ultimate spot to interact with friendly stingrays.

And don’t forget the infamous Amphitrite, a stunning 9-foot bronze mermaid statue, off the shore of the Resort. She serves as a popular attraction for divers and is totally Instagram-worthy!

We will be diving with Reef Divers. They provide personalized valet diver services so you can kick back and relax before your dive. They do all the heavy lifting and rinse, dry and store your BCD and regulator every day. Their divemasters are passionate about taking care of the marine environment and are focused on your safety while diving.

Top reasons you should travel with me to Grand Cayman!

1. Stingray City- This is probably the most friendly and interactive stingrays you will ever meet!

2. USS Kittiwake ship- One of the best-known wreck dives in the Caribbean. This WWII submarine rescue ship found its final resting place in 2011 and is a must-see spot for divers.

3. Sunset House Resort- Sunset House was made for divers, by divers. It’s only a 15-minute walk from George Town and offers all the amenities a water lover could ask for.

4. George Town- George Town is the capital of the Cayman Islands and offers lots of shopping and delicious restaurants and cafes.

5. Beautiful beaches- The Cayman Islands have beaches that go on for miles. Its award-winning Seven Mile Beach is a key stop for travelers.

Resort Details

 

Where we are staying

Cobalt Coast Resort is a small resort with big resort amenities. With their on-site dive shop, you’ll have access to a large drying room for your scuba gear and shore dive rinse tank stations. And after a full day of diving, you can relax in the pool or hot tub, relax in lounge chairs, or sip a cocktail and watch the sunset. 

Every day you’ll be treated to chef-prepared meals and served in an open-air dining area overlooking the Caribbean. The quiet resort is just a short ride from George Town and Seven Mile Beach.

What prior travelers say

“Grand Cayman is one of my favorite locations to dive. Beautiful gin clear water, glorious wall diving, shallow dives with tons of macro life, and some amazing shore diving. Don’t forget about topside adventures, great food options, and of course the best sunsets I have seen to date! Can’t wait to travel the Cayman’s again!”

-Megan Oswald
