Module 5: Diving and Sports
In this module we will test your knowledge of the diving and sports facilities available to your customers.
The Cayman Islands are renowned as one of the world’s top three destinations for scuba divers, and here’s why:
- Excellent visibility: There are no rivers therefore no silt from the land flowing into the sea so your clients will enjoy visibility of 100ft or more.
- Spectacular walls and drop-offs: The Cayman Islands are the top of a submerged mountain range, meaning the coastline is characterised by incredible walls. A cruise ship moored off George Town can be in 50ft of water at the bow and 5,000ft at the stern.
- Top dive sites: With Stingray City (known as the world’s best 12ft dive), the 330ft Russian destroyer off Cayman Brac, and world renowned Bloody Bay Wall, the Cayman Islands offer three of the world’s most famous, exciting and unique dive sites.
- Strict marine protection laws: Since 1978 the Cayman Islands Government has carefully regulated the marine environment, with the result that the coral, sponges and fish that flourish in our pristine waters are today more bountiful than ever.
- Strict safety and equipment control: Thanks to first class standards of dive and rental equipment, the Cayman Islands enjoy an astonishingly high safety record and serve as a model for other dive destinations throughout the world. In addition, there is a fully equipped recompression chamber on Grand Cayman.
- Easy access: Each dive site is only 10-20 minutes’ boat ride from the shore, with some spectacular dives so close that even snorkellers can enjoy them just a short swim from the beach.
- No crowds: Each dive site has a permanent mooring buoy to prevent throwing anchors and damaging the coral – and only one dive boat is allowed on any dive site at a time.
- Instruction: With top quality instruction and virtually every course available, the Cayman Islands are the perfect place to learn new skills – or indeed to learn the sport from scratch with a PADI Open Water qualification.
