WHAT TO EXPECT ON A GEORGE TOWN LIVEABOARD
George Town liveaboards are a perfect way for the dive enthusiast to ensure that you make the most of your time here in the Cayman Islands. Depart from the port of George Town on a liveaboard cruise and embark on your voyage for the dive trip of a lifetime.
George Town, the capital city of the Cayman Islands, is a bustling Caribbean port town. Well-maintained buildings painted in vivid tropical hues line the streets and steel drum-backed calypso music rings festively from store fronts and restaurants. George Town is located on the southwest corner of Grand Cayman, the country's largest and busiest island. Sailing out of George Town harbour guest will be greeted with crystal clear blue Caribbean waters.
The Cayman Islands are a highly sought after Caribbean dive location, with 300+ dive sites of notorious walls, wrecks and reefs peppering the surrounding waters so liveaboards in George Town are the best way to experience all this. While there are dive sites on all sides of the island, the west side of Grand Cayman is significantly more tranquil and the walls more prominent and dramatic making this a Cayman Islands dive safari to remember. The majority of dive sites are located directly off the west coast, spread parallel along the well-known crescent shaped stretch of sand appropriately named Seven Mile Beach and liveaboard boats in the Cayman Islands offer something for everyone.
LIVEABOARD DIVING FROM GEORGE TOWN
Book a Cayman Islands dive cruise with liveaboard.com, departing any week of the year, and enjoy a 7night/8day dive tour with 3 to 4 dives per day to some of the area's most exciting and well known sites. With a live aboard trip, you will get the best of both worlds in terms of quantity and quality. Log up to 25 dives in one week--much more than the average holiday diver, and do so from the top quality deck of a luxury liveaboard yacht.
Aboard a dive yacht, the Cayman Island itineraries will ensure you will be able to experience the first rate dive sites of Grand Cayman, as well as sites around the smaller islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Varying types of accessible dive sites include reefs, caverns and swim-throughs, walls, and wrecks.
Several of the notable shallow reef dive sites include Angelfish Reef, Bullwinkle East, Jax Dax, and Lighthouse Reef. In these locations, thriving reefs rife with healthy and active swimming marine life can be observed where beautiful coral heads and abundant sponge populations grow.
Caves, caverns, and swim-throughs are populous geographical features and can be easily reached via a liveaboard dive yacht. Explore the ins and outs of the well-known sites of Big Tunnels, Bonnie's Arch, Cumbers Caves, Devil's Grotto, Eagle Ray Rock, Joy's Joy, Kelly's Cavern, and Trinity Caves.
The ever popular walls accessible by a Cayman Islands liveaboard dive trip must not be missed. Neptune's Wall, Jackson's Wall, Rum Point Dropoff, Sensation Wall, and Pedro's Pinnacles are among the best that Cayman Islands wall diving has to offer.
Wrecks make for an exciting dive. A few favored wrecks include Kittiwake, the Russian Destroyer, Doc Poulson, and Oro Verde. Balboa wreck is a preferred fascinating night dive spot.
Protected marine parks and ideal climate conditions are responsible for some of the healthiest reefs in the Caribbean. Loads of marine life, both large and small, can frequently be found here. Large species often sighted include Green Sea Turtles, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays, Nassau Groupers, Moray Eels, and one of the areaï¿½s top attractions, Southern Stingrays.
