Where we are diving
Sunset House is known for its incredibly diverse house reef and with unlimited shore diving, you’ll appreciate the easy access to some of the best diving on the island. Get back from the morning two-tank dive, have a quick lunch and jump right back into the warm Caribbean waters to look for Amphitrite, the famous mermaid, or the wreck of the Nicholson. Dawn, afternoon, and night dives, the choice is yours. The boat dive sites will leave even the most seasoned divers awestruck – deep dramatic walls adorned with sponges and corals, shallow reefs of fish and small invertebrates, and an assortment of famous wrecks. Join Trip Leaders Jim Hayes and Joe Fuller on a hassle-free trip perfect for all levels of divers.

Know before you go
Electricity on the Cayman Islands is 110-volt AC (60 cycles), so adapters or transformers are not required for U.S. appliances. Please turn off your television, lights and Air Conditioning when not in use to help us conserve power!
The water in the Cayman Islands is, for the most part, safe to drink. Two desalination plants on Grand Cayman supply good-quality purified tap water to the entire West End, including Seven Mile Beach. If you can determine that you’re drinking desalinated water, then it’s safe to drink. Just ask. Sunset House also relies on rainwater collected in cisterns, to water the lawns, plants and fill the pool. The toilets are supplied by the well at Sunset House. Please help us in trying to conserve water!
Etiquette & Customs
You should pay attention to dress code etiquette in the Cayman Islands, as it remains a “proper” British crown colony and its residents are often conservative in dress and manners. Avoid wearing bathing suits or scanty beachwear outside of beach areas and cruise ships. Cover up in public areas, especially on the streets of George Town. Visitors will want to wear smart casual tropical resort wear at most restaurants.
There is no need for visitors to exchange their US dollars into local currency. The US dollar is accepted throughout the islands. Major credit cards (with the exception of the Discover Card) and traveler’s checks are widely accepted.
A government tourist tax of 13% is added to your hotel bill. A departure tax of CI$20 is also collected when you leave the Caymans; this tax is included in your plane fare. There is no tax on goods and services.
The legal drinking age is 18. Beer, wine, and liquor are sold at most grocery and convenience stores Monday to Saturday. It is legal to have an open container on the beach. Do not carry open containers of alcohol in your car or any public area that isn’t zoned for alcohol consumption. The police can fine you on the spot. Don’t even think about driving while intoxicated.
Free Sunset House Shuttle
Sunset House has partnered with Island Luxe to offer free shuttle service to George Town (around Bayshore Mall) twice per day in the afternoon. Leaves the hotel daily at 2pm and 4pm. Pick up is at 4:10pm and 6:10pm. Ask for information at the front desk.
Water temperature is around 85 degrees with weather between 83-87 degrees. Sea conditions are light-choppy and visibility is 60-100 ft.
