Grand Cayman diving has three sides North, West & South. We select which location we are at according to the weather. Each side has stunning diving and depending on when you visit you will get to see different sides.
North is most accessible during the summer months. Dives sites like Eagle Ray Pass, Princess Pennies Pinnacle, Round-A-Bout and Lesley's Curl are in our Top Ten Dive Sites on the North.
West is calm 80% of the year and has some of the best diving in Grand Cayman. Short boat rides and calm conditions mean this is a popular side to dive. We love Trinity Caves, Round Rock, Inbetween, Orange Canyon, Big Tunnels and Three Trees. The list is endless and you could dive every day on the west and never get bored.
South side is visited during high wind conditions coming from the Northwest as it is the calmest area during these times. We love to dive Laura's Reef, Bullwinlkle, Charlie's Caves and Ned's Tunnels.
