ShoreTrips says...

Come dive the clearest waters in the Caribbean. The Travel Channel calls Grand Cayman "The Best Scuba Diving in North America."

We know there are many cruise passengers who want to learn to dive while they're in the warm and beautiful waters of the Caymans. This dive shop is only a short stroll from the cruise ship terminal, with fantastic diving at their door step.

The PADI Discover Scuba Course consists of a short briefing in the classroom followed by an accompanied dive with an instructor on the Wreck of the Cali, which lies in 25 feet of crystal clear water. To ensure individual attention, we limit the number of new divers to 4 per instructor.

We'll introduce you to the equipment and teach you how to clear your mask. You’ll then proceed to the dock and take your first giant stride into the ocean. You'll float on the surface, where you’ll become comfortable breathing off of the regulator (and adjust to the salt water).

The Cali is a four-masted schooner that went down in the harbor in 1944. She sits in 25 feet of water, where her ribs, winches, and boilers are all nicely encrusted with sponges and corals. The Cali is home to more tropical fish than you can imagine. Be sure to keep an eye out for our resident population of tarpons. Just south of the wreck is a beautiful coral reef, teeming with life.

After the learning portion of the class, you may join in a shallow dive, maximum 40 ft. deep, to finish your tank with the instructor.

If you or the instructor feels that you are not proficient enough to dive safely, you can snorkel, but no refunds will be given.

Certified divers are welcome to tag along.

Grand Cayman is the best known dive destination in the Caribbean. You will be hooked forever!
