Cayman Islands is a World-Class SCUBA dive cruise shore excursion destination, now is your chance to see and explore the beauty below it's clear and warm ocean waters! 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, damselfish, grunts, butterfly-fish, angelfish, yellowtail 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.

Please note that this Discover Scuba Diving Excursion does not qualify you as a certified SCUBA diver but will give you a good idea what it is like and adds points to any real open water scuba dive certification!

I am 71 years old. This was my first time scuba diving. Gear heavy and needed help getting out of water, but experience was awesome. Do again for sure! Staff and guides in water were personal and extremely helpful. Safe all the way. Great pre-instructions. Remember to pinch your nose to equalize ear pressure going down. I had to go slow up and down. Guides really patient and very helpful. Love this experience.

My husband and I did this. I am NOT a good swimmer by any account (hubby is), but I wanted to try it. Our instructors, Dan and Gaston were spectacular! They were extremely patient and helpful to ensure that we were able to enjoy this experience. It was very cool being able to be down 25 feet, walking on the bottom and seeing cool fish and just the experience. If this is part of your bucket list (as it was mine)....DO IT! Ask for Dan and Gaston.. great people and even better instructors. Sadly, did not bring camera... would recommend doing so.

Super Excursion

This was a fantastic shore excursion - We had the best dive instructor - Alexia - she was wonderful - very caring and very kind. We are certified divers but it has been awhile - so this was the perfect refresher course. This was a perfect way to re-enter scuba diving. The equipment was excellent - we were not rushed through instruction and were given all the important instruction by Alexia - the dive was about 18 to 20 feet - we saw lots of fish (including 2 Puffer fish and huge Tarpins) and a cool ship wreck. I highly recommend this excursion - (Tour Operator) and Alexia get A++++! Grand Cayman was beautiful and Alexia made our excursion perfect!

We purchased this excursion through ShoreExcursioneer.com and had paid a deposit through them and the remainder at Diver’s Down upon arrival to actually scuba dive. We arrived a half hour late due to our ships process of getting passengers onto a tender boat, but the staff was very accomodating and still allowed us to dive, which we were very grateful for. Jack, our guide, was absolutely amazing. He was extremely patient, answered all of our questions, and explained everything in detail. We had brung a phone underwater to record and Jack took it to get good shots for us. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to dive for the first time. We had an amazing time!

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.

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!!
