UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY

The Cayman Islands is one of the finest underwater photo destinations in the world. Whether you are an amateur with a point and shoot camera or a pro with the finest SLR, you can shoot fantastic photos on virtually every dive.

THERE ARE FOUR MAJOR REASONS WHY THE CAYMAN ISLANDS EXCEL

  1. Clear, calm water, where most dives have little to no current
  2. Friendly fish and colourful sponges
  3. Great variety of dive experiences
  4. World-class safe diving and underwater photography support

1. VISIBILITY

While many islands offer excellent underwater visibility, the Cayman Islands is consistently superior. There is no river or agricultural run-off. These flat coral islands sit in the middle of the Western Caribbean, where the sea is pristine, so your photos look clear and exciting.

2. COLOUR

When it comes to underwater photography, colour is the spice that makes the pictures exciting. Cayman dive sites are adorned with bright orange, yellow, pink and especially bright red sponges.

3. VARIETY

One of the most compelling reasons photo pros travel to the Cayman Islands is the incredible variety of both wide-angle subjects like shipwrecks, swim-throughs of all sizes, vertical walls covered in colourful sponges and a myriad of small subjects like shrimp and Christmas tree worms found on the shallow reefs.

4. SERVICES

The Cayman Islands has an extensive selection of underwater photo services. Whether you are a beginner, amateur or professional underwater photographer, the Cayman Islands can fulfill your needs. Dive masters know how to handle your delicate cameras and you can rent a wide variety of excellent digital camera systems. There are a wide range of photo courses available including private lessons to match your needs.
