This page will feature various dive trips or vacations with diving as an option. If you are interested in a location that is not featured, please call us. As a diver, I would be very interested in ANY comments, good or bad, that you might have about your past dive trips or dive locations. ( departuresowen@cox.net ) Anything we can do to help your fellow divers plan the best dive trip possible, would be appreciated. We work with some great tour companies in Hawaii and Fiji. They always have some great deals and scuba options can be added very easily.

Dive 365

Dive 365Offering a new dive experience for each day of the year. Since launching in 2008, the Dive 365 initiative has highlighted the Cayman Islands’ dedication to providing divers with more opportunities while preserving the precious marine environment. Adding 68 new dive sites around all 3 islands, the initiative has aimed to alleviate the environmental impact of recreational diving at more popular sites while simultaneously offering divers the opportunity to immerse in Caymanian dive culture, opening up the lesser-known gems for safe public use. The 365 sites offer dives for all skill levels and, with new locations including secret spots of some of the destination’s top dive masters. The initiative has added several high-profile dive destinations over the years, including the Kittiwake, a former US submarine rescue ship sunk off the shores of Seven Mile Beach. The artificial reef houses an abundance of spectacular marine life. Other dive attractions include the wreck of the Russian-built Cuban naval frigate 330 ft. M/V Captain Keith Tibbetts off the coast of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman’s legendary Bloody Bay Wall, a plunging coral wall with a sheer drop of more than 6,000 feet. Choose your experience from 3 islands with 365 possibilities.

I was in Grand Cayman in March of 2014. I was able to get in 6 exciting dives including one to the Kittiwake.
