Grand Cayman offers several great shore diving opportunities that will compliment your week of boat diving. The “house reef” for Grand Cayman Dive/Off The Wall Divers is Cheeseburger Reef, so named for it’s proximity to Burger King and conveniently located just behind our home, the Lobster Pot Dive Center.
The reef is spread over 3-4 acres of the ocean bottom and contains vibrant coral colors and abundant marine life. Often spotted on the reef are large turtles and a resident school of tarpon. Don’t be fooled by the sands in the shallows. Here, you will come across number nudibranchs (lettuce leaf sea slugs), juvenile flounder, sea hares (a/k/a water bunnies), box crabs and squid ranging from juvenile to full grown.
Other shore diving around the island includes, but is not limited to:
In general these three sites range from 15-25ft. in the shallows to 60ft. at the base of the miniwall. The “main” wall starts about 50-60ft. and “drops”.
It is customary to rent tanks from the respective operator at the site and at all locations around the island. EAN tanks are readily available at the above location too.
I have been lucky enough to dive many places in the world and with lots of different dive operations. Off the Wall Divers is BY FAR the best operation for many reasons! …Their gear, which I used all week, is top notch! The boat only takes out a small number of divers so you always feel like you are getting a private dive tour! Tom, Kelly and Meghan are all amazing and quick to point out unique fish and little critters that would have been missed otherwise. …Dive with Off the Wall Divers. I promise you will be happy you did!
