Home to some of the clearest and deepest visibility in the Caribbean, Cayman Brac is a highly sought after scuba diving destination.  There are more then 30 dive sites easily accessible from the shore, and more if you're willing to travel a little further out.  If you're planning a getaway where diving plays a central role, this is definitely a destination to consider. 

You'll find a couple of dive services and at least 39 different dive sites to choose from.

Dive Operators

If you'd like to go diving, you should consider Brac Scuba Shack. Owned and operated by three locals with 15 years of experience diving around the island, Brac Scuba Shack came into being when the need for a scuba operation that focused on my personalized service arose. The facility never takes out more than 10 divers at a time, so guests are never made to feel like cattle herded together on a small boat. They are located within Cayman Brac.

Another good option is Reef Divers. Not only does Reef Divers specialize in open water dives, but they are certified PADI trainers as well. If you're new to the sport you can sign up for an introductory course, and if you've been diving before, this is a great opportunity to hone your skills. You can call them at (855) 439-6815.
