Nestled in the tropical and scenic Caribbean, the paradise retreat of the Cayman Islands are popular for the seclusion, recreation and relaxation they provide. The Grand Cayman, along with its sister islands Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, are three English-speaking islands in the unspoiled Caribbean Sea located just about an hour south of Miami. The weather in the Cayman Islands is typically tropical; warm humid summers with a fair bit of rain and cool dry winters.
The sister islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are popular as diving and snorkeling destinations and are rated amongst the top five destinations in the world for under water explorations. The islands’ amazing fish-covered coral reefs and dramatic underwater drop-offs provide the ideal setting for underwater photography and has been one of the most sought after destinations by even the amateur photographers for many years.
Each of the two islands’ sea bed composes of a sub-sea mountain range, known as the Cayman Ridge. This unique sea bed formation is an interesting spectacle and provides diving enthusiasts with both shallow and wall diving. Both islands offer submarine rides and group diving excursions. The submarine rides take you as low as 60 feet underwater for an intimate experience with the wonders of the Atlantis.
