Our Cayman Dive Shop

Stingray City

We have moved! In the summer of 2021 we moved our dive shop to the most iconic location in Grand Cayman Diving history. We are honored to be the custodians of the world famous shop that was the birth place of recreational scuba diving in The Cayman Islands, 245 North Church Street. We are now on the waterfront at the beginning of Seven Mile Beach as you leave George Town. Originally built by the legend of Cayman Diving, Bob Soto. This iconic building is still owned by the Soto’s family and we are proud to call this the home of Living The Dream Divers.

Liz-and-GaryWe have custom designed the interior to match our modern Cayman Diving needs. Our merchandise is uniquely designed and stocked by Liz and is available for purchase. It is also ground zero for all Living The Dream Diving operations. Having a physical address on the waterfront with a private dock is rare for a Dive Shop in Grand Cayman, but we feel its vital for operations and to offer the level of service to our divers that Living The Dream Divers is known for. Our private dock and shore diving facility provides perfect conditions to access Caymans West and South Side Diving.

If you choose to meet us, we have plenty of dedicated free parking. Our private car park is across from the shop. Pick a space, walk across the cross walk and meet us on the sea wall. Arrive early for the dives and soak in the atmosphere of our dive Mecca! We have picnic tables to enjoy the view, bathrooms, fresh filtered water to fill up your water bottles, sodas, and basic snacks for sale. If you want to get out of the sun the shop has comfortable seating and air conditioning!! This is the perfect location to sit and enjoy the view. Our family of huge Tarpon cruise the shallow water right next to the dock. Looking a little shark like, these creatures are amazing! Off in the distance you will see sail boats and ships as they travel to and from Grand Cayman.

Our Dive shop is the perfect location to meet us for diving, buy merchandise, snorkel, shore dive, and pay for your dives. We do not suggest visiting the shop for changing, making, or confirming your dive reservations. To stay organized, all reservations for diving, questions and confirmations are done with Liz via email, phone, text and what’s app. The crew in the shop do not have access to the reservation system. All waivers and gear sizing is done on the boat, on your first day of diving. There is no need to join us at the shop prior to your first day. We have a system!

This location is not just a world class shop and departure point for us! It is home to Grand Cayman’s most famous shore dive and snorkel site, Sotos Reef! If you want to do a shore dive, or snorkel while you are on island this is a great location. If you are staying at our dive resort, Ocean Cabanas, you have unlimited, free shore diving and snorkeling from our dive shop. Swim with large tarpon and check out the amazing reef formations on Grand Caymans first official shore dive. To find out more about the site and access please chat to us before your trip. We are happy to give you all the information, history and site layout.

A five star operation needs a home base! Our Cayman dive shop is so much more, it’s the heart and soul of our operation. The beginning and end of our day, a meeting place, and a home for our amazing team. Come see us!
