Offshore Sailing and Diving Tour
Duration: Half Day
One of the most appealing aspects of a holiday in the Cayman Islands is its spectacular natural beauty – both above and below the water. This unforgettable adventure at sea will enable you to discover the breathtaking landscapes and seascapes of the Caribbean through offshore sailing and diving around Grand Cayman, the largest of the three Cayman Islands.
There are numerous sailing tours available from Grand Cayman’s shores, all covering different sections of water, so all you have to do is choose when and where you want to go. Some of the most popular tours combine both sailing and diving, taking you across the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea via a luxury catamaran or private sailboat to some of the best diving spots around the island. The Cayman Islands is undoubtedly a scuba diving mecca, boasting world-class dive sites that incorporate vibrant coral reefs, vertical walls, historic shipwrecks and mysterious underwater caverns and tunnels, all of which are inhabited by an abundance of marine life. Brightly-coloured tropical fish, sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, stingrays, eels and sharks are just some of the sea creatures you can spot in these incredibly clear warm waters, as well as many beautiful corals, fans and sponges.
Some of the most popular dive sites can be found on the west side of the island near George Town and Seven Mile Beach, including Eden Rock, Devil's Grotto, Orange Canyon and the Oro Verde ship wreck, which was purposely sunk as a reef. The famous Stingray City and White Stroke Canyon are the best places to dive around the beautiful Rum Point, whilst more experienced diving enthusiasts tend to embrace the esteemed North Wall or rougher East End dive sites. Whichever area you explore, the majestic underwater beauty and diversity of the Caribbean Sea will captivate you.
Sailing around the Cayman Islands is an adventure in itself, as they have long been associated with a rich history of pirates who established hideouts along the coast in the 17th century. Many of the caves are still believed to still contain ancient treasures. As you travel the ocean, where many a seafarer has sailed before you, step back in time and imagine what life was like hundreds of years ago, although much of the coastline has changed since then. Admire the spectacular scenery as you cruise leisurely past secluded coves, pristine white sandy beaches, historic landmarks and rugged cliffs, which appear even more beautiful as the sun sets. This paradise location is truly breathtaking.
