It’s no wonder that diving in the Cayman Islands has become so popular, as this Caribbean country boasts some of the best diving sites in the world. Diving enthusiasts can choose from over 40 dive operations, and over 350 sites that are marked with moorings. Add to the mix the excellent underwater visibility of 100 feet or more, and warm water temperatures year round, and it is easy to see why divers flock to these waters.
Although the best diving in the Cayman Islands may be a matter of opinion, many experts clam that Bloody Bay is one of the top diving sites in the entire Caribbean. The area was named for a historic naval battle, and is now a protected area. In addition to the clear blue waters, divers are attracted to the sheer wall, plunging almost 2,000 yards to the sea bed. On a dive here, you can expect to see a wealth of marine life, including groupers, triggerfish, and rays as well as a bewildering array of coral and sponges. The late Jacques Cousteau, who was no stranger to the waters here, declared it was not only the Cayman Island’s best diving site, but the best in the world.
