Stingray City

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 6 votes

Stingray City is Cayman Island's most stunning feature. It is an area suitable for snorkellers and divers where you will literally find hundreds of southern stingrays swimming and hovering across the white sand. During the past decades they have been lured by the leftovers of local fishermen. They cleaned their catch of the day and threw the rest overboard. Today many divers interact with the rays and hand feed them with parts of squid. Once a ray smells that food that is brought into the wa...

Eden Rock

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.8, 5 votes

Grouper Grotto

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Grouper Grotto is a relatively shallow dive site where coral heads, pinnacles and caverns fight about which one is going to be the prime characteristic. In between this maze of archways and overhangs you will find huge balls of baitfish, often silversides.

Among its vibrant marine life are two large resident Nassau groupers which have been named Ben a...
