LITTLE CAYMAN BEACH RESORT & REEF DIVERS
Several surveys in Rodale’s Scuba Diving Magazine voted Little Cayman Beach Resort first place for wall diving in the entire Caribbean, second place for favourite reef diving and within the top five Caribbean destinations in each of the following categories: advanced diving, photography and sea life. Not only is the diving superb, but once you arrive at Little Cayman Beach Resort, you will be treated as a very special guest. Little Cayman Beach Resort prides itself on its high level of hospitality. Luggage is taken from you on arrival and whisked to your room. You won’t have to lift it again until you are back at the airport awaiting your departure! The elegant and superbly appointed guest rooms are very spacious with air conditioning and modern, tasteful decoration. Each room has a balcony or patio, colour television, ceiling fans and private bathroom. There is a choice of Pool View or Ocean View rooms, all of which are set amongst tropical foliage and landscaped gardens. When not indulging in the world-famous diving that Little Cayman has to offer, you can take your choice of relaxing in or out of the swimming pool or jacuzzi, sipping a tropical cocktail in the Beach Nuts Bar or dining in the Bird of Paradise Restaurant. There are tennis courts, basketball, bicycles, sailboats and kayaks available. Uncrowded, powder-soft sandy beaches beckon the romantics to roam bare foot along the shore at dawn, dusk or on those magical moonlit nights for which Little Cayman is so famous.
Reef Divers is the resort-owned and managed dive centre with a fleet of modern, custom designed boats, dive gear for hire and experienced, friendly and knowledgeable staff including dive guides and instructors. There is a selection of underwater video and photography equipment for hire. There is excellent diving equipment rental and a full range of PADI diving courses is offered. Reef Divers offer a wide choice of dive sites each day including trips to the wreck of the Keith Tibbetts off Cayman Brac. The very comfortable dive boats have many features designed to make diving as easy and stress free as possible, with padded seats and gear storage areas as well as a sheltered cabin area and plenty of shade on the forward deck. Entry is by giant stride from the large stern dive platform and exit is made easy using dive ladders and handrails. There is a padded camera table in the cabin area for the sole use of underwater photographers. Freshwater showers and toilet facilities are available along with rinse tanks for dive and photography gear. Iced water, juice, fruit and snacks are usually available on the boats. All boats are fully equipped with ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore radio, emergency oxygen kit and first aid equipment. Boats depart each morning at 0830 for a two-tank dive, returning to the resort at noon. Afternoon dives are scheduled for a 1430 departure. Night dives are available, on request, locally at an additional charge.
The aim of Reef Divers is to make your diving as easy as possible. Take your assembled gear to the dive boat on the first morning and from then on they will set it up (including tank changes between dives). Each evening your gear will be rinsed off and stored overnight, ready for use the next day. Thorough dive orientations and briefings are given for all dives and divers are welcome to use computers to maximize bottom time.
Tanks for shore diving are available at no extra charge, but the best shore diving is about 2 miles from the resort. Vehicles may be rented through the tour desk at the resort.
