Kaiman Islands Tours
The Grand Cayman diving adventure begins with a security briefing by your guide and a 5 -minute cruise to the Sub. Capture your first glimpse of the subsurface as it breaches the sea from its earlier voyage. As soon as it is docked next to the lifeboat, you board the yacht via a platform and access the air-conditioned cab through a large door.
While exploring Grand Cayman's Underwater Marine Park to a depth of 30 metres, you will be surprised by the gentle sailing and the clear waters. On the 40-minute cruise you can find out what is under the sea without getting drenched - giant keg sponge and sea coral are on the coral wall, snappers and groupers float past in peace, and even the sporadic stingrays or turtles can fly by within a few metres of your large viewing dock.
You will end your trip by returning to the top where you can see the sub on another dives before returning to the jetty harbour. Overnight option: Select the overnight options to go on the same trip as the day trip, but with the added vagueness of being under water after nightfall.
This 45-minute cruise allows you to see sea creatures that are not normally seen during the afternoon, especially predators. Dedicated highlights on the sub will allow you to recognize these revellers without scare them away. It is an unforgettable and uncanny adventure, which is the ideal conclusion to a long stay on Grand Cayman.
