Like Poseidon Himself
Would Do

We've been proudly showing off our underwater world since 1957, when scuba pioneer, Bob Soto, opened the first Grand Cayman dive shop. Today, Cayman is one of the top dive destinations anywhere. With over 40 operators and 365 sites marked with moorings, thrill-seekers from all over take the plunge here.

Cayman gives both the novice and the experienced some of the best diving in the world, as environmentally protected reefs surround each of our three islands. Our secluded locale, far from other landmasses, is what keeps our oceans clean and our coral healthy. Here you’ll happen upon the most spectacular seawalls in the Caribbean as our islands rest on submerged mountains.

Whether you’re jumping in from the shore or off the side of your boat, our waters are about 25°C year-round with some of the best visibility in the world. You can even rent propulsion vehicles and see multiple sites in just one dive, making the most of your time under the water.

Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is the largest of our islands and brings some of the most incredible sights beneath the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea. Begin your Grand Cayman diving experience with some of these top sights.

Ex-USS Kittiwake

How about Grand Cayman scuba diving that takes you to an authentic sunken American warship?

The USS Kittiwake entered service in 1946 and retired in 1994. She was sunk off Seven Mile Beach to create an artificial reef for our marine friends. Hire a boat and experience scuba diving in the Grand Cayman Islands for an experience you’ll never forget.

Eden Rock & Devil’s Grotto

Dive the Grand Cayman Islands without stepping onto a boat with these incredible dive sights close to George Town.

Eden Rock and the Devil’s Grotto sit next to each other. Just start at the cruise ship port and walk for 10 minutes. Accessible from the shoreline, Eden Rock is brimming with colorful coral and tropical creatures.

Once you have had your fill, your adventure into scuba diving in Grand Cayman will take you to the underwater caves of neighboring Devil’s Grotto. Marvel at the silver sprats and tarpon of this area.

Are you a new diver looking for an experience you’ve never had?

Wreck of the Oro Verde

Sunken ship explorers wanting to scuba in Grand Cayman should head to the wreck of the Oro Verde.  

After a decade of duty for the United States Army, the Oro Verde found new life as a transporter of bananas.
