Scuba diving in the Cayman islands is particularly popular because of its wreck diving sites which were made even more famous after the sinking of the USSS Kittiwake naval ship in January last year to create an artificial reef.
During scuba diving holidays in Cayman Islands, visitors can dive into crystal clear warm turquoise waters and discover an array of diving sites that are thriving with marine life such as vibrant colourful coral and sponges, Green Sea Turtles, Stingrays, Groupers, Garden Eels, and Parrot Fish.
