From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced diving here has stated that Cayman’s East End is one of the Caribbean’s premier dive spots. Offering, pristine reefs, breathtaking wall dives, excellent visibility and incredible diving.
The Cayman Islands have strict marine conservation laws to protect the underwater environment. Many of the 55 dive sites are within a short boat ride, including the legendary Jack McKenny’s Canyons – one of East End’s famous dive sites.
Here, coral and canyons and sand chutes lead you thorough into pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6,000ft. These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. The 80 -86 of water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater photographs are taken in the Cayman Islands than in all other Caribbean destinations.
The Caymans’ trademark turtles are common sight and eagle rays, angelfish, reef sharks and grouper count among the 500 species of fish that have been documented here.
The onsite dive operator - Ocean Frontiers is delighted to introduce you to the spectacular diving of the East End and to ensure they you have a safe and enjoyable dive experience. The Dive Shop offers comprehensive training, a retail store, fresh water rinsing tanks and a dive gear storage area
As a guest you will enjoy rolling out of bed and onto to the dive boat to dive from one or maybe all of the custom designed dive boats.

- Ocean Hawk
- Eastern Skies

The boats are well equipped and furnished to meet your diving needs. Each boat has a fresh water shower, rinse tank and a separate rinse tank for cameras, a camera table, drinking water, lemonade and Orange slices and fresh towels. There is a marine head on every boat.
Two Tank (Wall/Reef) boat trips are scheduled every morning and every afternoon, seven days a week. Night dives are scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday night. Stingray city trips are scheduled every Friday afternoon and there is also a Three Tank Safari dive trip every Wednesday.
Dive sites are chosen by the Captain every trip and are not decided until that day. There are several factors that influence their choice; wind, current and visibility. We will also check which sites have already been visited this dive trip so as not to repeat those.
A Scuba Divers Dream
In the 500 years since Christopher Columbus was blown off course en route to Hispaniola and landed on The Cayman Islands, this beautiful setting has changed dramatically in some ways, and not at all in others. No longer inhabited solely by turtles, large lizards and other wildlife, the Caymans have nonetheless retained much of their native beauty.
Christopher Columbus discovered the Cayman Islands in 1503. He named the islands Las Tortugas because of the abundance of turtles that inhabited the nearby waters. By 1530, the islands were being called the "Caymanas", which derived from a Carib Indian name for crocodiles, who were known to be abundant around Cayman Island beaches at the time.
Residents of The Caymans enjoy the highest standard of living in the Caribbean. As you'll discover on your Cayman Island vacation, instead of casinos, fevered nightlife, and crime, Caymanians live in a stable community where education is highly valued, and readily available. Generations of Caymanians have passed down music, folklore, rich customs and even a lilting "sing-song" dialect that survives today.
The Cayman Islands consists of three islands, with Grand Cayman being the largest, and most developed. The two Sister Islands of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, lie approximately 89 miles east-northeast of Grand Cayman and are separated from each other by a channel about seven miles wide.
The beauty of Cayman Islands above and below the waves, the sunny climate and friendly people make these islands a natural dive vacation destination.
