From walls adorned with spectacular corals, wrecks that are home to a diverse array of marine life, or shallow reefs teeming with tropical fish species, the dive sites of Grand Cayman will delight REEF surveyors, who will enjoy fish id seminars each day. Weather permitting, trips to Stingray City and the USS Kittiwake will be scheduled for the group, and participants may also take advantage of the unlimited shore diving directly in front of Sunset House. While Grand Cayman has more than 365 fantastic dive sites, this destination also has plenty of activities to enjoy during surface intervals or to entertain your non-diving companions, including Stingray City, Pedro St. James National Historic Site, Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, and the Black Pearl Skate and Surf Park, as well as visiting the stunning 7 Mile Beach, a short taxi ride from Sunset House.

 

Enjoy this view and see just how Sunset House gets its name.
