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.
Off the Wall Divers staff are friendly, fun, and competent. We dove with them after a recommendation of a friend who has been diving with them for over 10 years, if not longer! Great service all around. We were picked up right on time at our hotel, and taken care of from start to finish with gear, snacks, and friendly dive masters. …My only complaint was that my visit was too short to go back and do more dives!! I’ll definitely dive with them again if I’m ever lucky enough to make it back to Cayman.
