The three tiny islands are not volcanic, but actually peaks of an undersea mountain known as the Cayman Ridge, which rises more than six miles from the ocean floor. To the south is the deepest part of the Caribbean Sea: the Cayman Trench, which plunges to a depth of 24,759 ft. What lures both novice and experienced divers to these islands is a combination of attractions: at the top of the list is the famous Cayman Wall, which divers know actually refers to the dramatic drop-offs surrounding all three islands. Within easy access by boat, beginning as shallow as 20 -35 ft., the ocean floor falls away as either a sloping or sheer vertical cliff, plummeting 6,000 ft. into unfathomable blue abyss.
Add to this our reputation for industry professionalism, gentle tropical climate; friendly, English-speaking people; predictably warm, clear water year-round with visibility in excess of 100 ft; and a menagerie of marine life, so plentiful and varied that you never know what you'll see on any dive - and you now have the blueprint for an ideal diving vacation.
Note: Private charter rates available and discounts offered on three or more days of diving.
