Liveaboard Diving in Trinity Caves


A liveaboard to Trinity Caves, Grand Cayman's famous dive location, is the perfect way to explore this amazing dive site. Located just off the coast of West Bay near North West Point on Grand Cayman, this dive site rests on the spectacular West Wall and worthy of any dive safari. Trinity Caves was originally made famous in the 1980s when it appeared in the film “The Firm.” Since then, it has become one of the most requested dive sites of the Cayman Islands. Sail to this famous dive site in style aboard a luxury liveaboard vessel and shine like a star as you navigate this natural movie set.

Contrary to its name, Trinity Caves dive site is not exactly composed of “caves.” Instead, it consists of three massive coral canyons that converge at a point on the West Wall with a dramatic vertical drop off. These converging coral canyons create three incredible and quite lengthy swim-throughs that twist and turn throughout the reef, which is no surprise that the best Cayman Islands liveaboards head to this destination. Penetrate the top of the reef through a large opening at a depth of approximately 12 meters. Gradually descend to a depth of just over 24 meters as you glide through the tunnels before exiting over the face of the gorgeous West Wall. Being one of the most popular dive sites, your Cayman Islands dive itinerary will most likely make a stop here.


Scuba diving in Trinity Caves is truly a sight to be seen.

This dive site is well suited for both wide angle and macro lenses making it a perfect addition to you liveaboard dive cruise.

In addition to the topography, the marine life is quite stunning as well. Large tube sponges, delicate sea fans, and radiant black coral adorn the walls.
