 Cayman Islands

Mittelamerika

The Cayman Islands are also world-famous as a scuba diving destination because of their crystal-clear waters and their proximity to the Cayman Wall. Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are also considered to be elite dive destinations. There are several snorkeling locations where tourists can swim with stingrays. Divers find two shipwrecks off the shores of Cayman Brac particularly interesting.

The three islands of the Cayman Islands are the exposed top of an underwater mountain. Underwater, the sides of this mountain are quite steep, vertical in some places, within as little as a few hundred meters from shore.

In addition to the expected coral reefs, colorful fish, and other underwater creatures, this "wall diving" provides something extra-ordinary for scuba divers. Scuba diving in the Caymans can be done by boat, or at many dive sites, directly from shore.

The tourism industry on the Cayman Islands caters to divers, with many resorts and condominium complexes having in-house diving operations offering course work, daily excursions, SCUBA Equipment sales and rentals.

- Boat Dive with Ocean Frontiers.  Wall dive.   Deep blue off wall drops to 6000 feet.  Make sure you descend along mooring line.  Free descent over drop off can be deceiving and you can end up too deep.
