The Cayman Islands are Fully Open for Dive Travel


The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism is at this year’s DEMA Show in Orlando, Florida with several of their partners to showcase this amazing destination. Yes, the three islands are back and fully open with no restrictions!

Ocean Cabanas opened this year on Grand Cayman. It’s located in the heart of the seven-mile beach area in West Bay. There are seven cabanas that range from US$250 – $650 (~€250 – ~€651) per night. It’s an oceanfront dive resort created by Living The Dream Divers, a boutique dive operation that specializes in valet service with big boats and small groups.

Compass Point Dive Resort, situated on Grand Cayman’s East End, boasts 28 impressive oceanfront and ocean view condominiums. World-class diving is presented by Ocean Frontiers. They have a fully customizable “Dive Valet” service offering the freedom to style your dive adventure. Everything available on site so you can “roll out of bed and onto the dive boat.”

Clearly Cayman has two dive resorts that offer incredible dive opportunities on the sister islands: The Little Cayman Beach Resort and Cayman Brac Beach Resort. Both resorts have ocean and pool view rooms. A variety of meal packages are available. A seven-night package with diving starts at $2,295 (~€2,299) at Little Cayman and $1,895 (~€1,898) at Cayman Brac.

Another partner is Cayman Airways who now offer a direct nonstop flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
