Grand Cayman is strict with reef conservation hence no one is allowed to touch or harm the marine life in any way. This gives photographers and videographers’ great opportunities to capture photos since the marine creatures are not afraid of divers, knowing they won’t be harmed. These reefs are unspoiled, which means you get to dive in the healthiest and virgin surroundings. Experienced divers also have the option of deep wall diving.
Besides your diving adventure, seeing Stingray City is highly recommended. This means basically being surrounded by the large number of stingrays that flock to the area around this shallow sandbar. Always do your research and go with a reputable diving tour operator such as Ambassador Divers, a PADI 5 Star rated facility. There may be some requirements you may need to take care of before your arrival. Always have your Scuba gear serviced prior to arrival, this will avoid any unwanted delays in your diving holiday.
If you'd rather stay on the beach sunning yourself, there's no better place than the Seven Mile Beach. There are excellent snorkeling locations at both ends of Seven Mile, make sure and ask your dive guide where to go. Here, wade and swim in the clear water before choosing which bar or restaurant to spend the evening at.
