About Grand Cayman
Located in the southwestern Caribbean, Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands with George Town, its capital and the biggest town of the Caymans, located on the Island. Grand Cayman is the most popular among the Islands due to a variety of activities it offers including various tourist attractions and festivals, museums, restaurants and shops. The famous Seven Mile Beach is located on the west side of Grand Cayman. It is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Caribbean. An abundant marine life, clear waters and good weather conditions make Grand Cayman one of the most popular destinations among divers. There are over 160 dive sites around the Island that are suitable for all levels of experience. While there are a few wall dives accessible from shore, the majority of deeper Grand Cayman dive sites are only reachable by boat. On Grand Cayman the most popular place for scuba diving is West Bay. The dive starts in the ankle-deep water near the beach and then drops to more than 213m/700ft. There are a lot of dive sites on the shallow side of this shelf, and many more on the seaward side of the cliff's face. Many of the well-known dive sites are located in the area or along the west wall. Grand Cayman’s North Wall plunges deeper than 1800 m/6000 ft and offers beautiful wall diving with opportunities to see spotted eagle rays and sea turtles. The island's south and east coasts have superb sites as well. Most popular dive sites Among the most popular dive sites of Grand Cayman is “USS Kittiwake” which is a famous wreck dive site, where experienced divers can explore the wreck's interior rooms, while new divers and snorkelers can explore the exterior. Stingray City is a shallow dive along sandy bottom that presents divers with a unique opportunity to be surrounded by hordes of southern stingrays. Babylon, another great dive in the area, is a large pinnacle with a canyon dissecting the North Wall. Oro Verde was a cargo ship that was deployed as an artificial reef and now covered in a dense coral and sponge growth which attracts various marine creatures. Other interesting dive sites include Devils Grotto, Eden Rock, and Bonnies Arch.
