Grand Cayman offers accessible shore diving to great coral reefs with little to no current. It is the ideal environment for beginners to Discover SCUBA Diving!

Your Discover SCUBA diving shore excursion in Grand Cayman begins when you arrive at the PADI Dive Center, 15 minutes prior your excursion departure time. You will be greeted by your PADI dive instructor and after completing your registration (including mandatory medical waiver), you will be ready for a brief introduction about exploring the underwater world of Grand Cayman.

On the beach, you will receive the basic safety training and guidelines and have time to get familiar with the beginner SCUBA diving excursion equipment. Your PADI dive instructor will show you all the skills needed for your first discover SCUBA dive, all under his professional and certified supervision. Then it is time to gear up and go diving! 

In the shallow water, you will practice a few more scuba skills to prepare for your real diving adventure. The instructor will be by your side helping, encouraging and assisting at all times during this beginner diving cruise excursion in Grand Cayman. When you feel comfortable, you will enter deeper water. You can expect to spot lots of tropical fish such as sergeant major, parrot-fish, damsel fish, grunts, butterfly-fish, angelfish, yellow tail snappers and very possibly even a sea turtle during your dive.

The open water dive from shore is on the "Wreck of the Cali", pieces a wreck and reef site less than 50 yards from shore, in 24 feet of water. It is a perfect site for beginners. There is an abundance of interesting marine life and things to see including winches, boilers, ribs and hull plates encrusted with sponges and corals.

All too soon, your Grand Cayman Beginner Dive Excursion will be finished and you will follow your instructor back to the beach. When you get back to the Dive Center, you can walk back to the Georgetown Tender pier and keep enjoying your day in Grand Cayman.

My husband and our 18 year old daughter absolutely loved this excursion. After a short walk from the ship pier we arrived at the location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Although after getting geared up and into the water the scuba diving was a bit overwhelming for my 12 year old and myself. One of the guides helped us back to the dock and was very encouraging. The dive company also offered us snorkeling for my daughter and I if we wanted to while the rest of our family was still doing scuba. The company was nice enough to give us a refund of half of the fee we paid for the excursion and gave us coupons to eat at one of the local restaurants.

We showed up early and they gladly took us! Our instructor was extremely helpful and patient. It was so amazing to scuba dive in the gorgeous waters and see some great sea life and a pretty cool ship wreck!

So glad my boyfriend and i got to experience this, our Dive Master Josh was super patient and helpful. First he took us to shallow water where we practiced the theory he explained before, we saw lots of colorful fish. Then we dove on a wreck full of coral, so beautiful!! We are definitely looking forward to starting with our certification back home, scuba diving has become my favorite activity ever!!
