Where To Snorkel In George Town


Snorkeling in Grand Cayman is both simple and exciting.  The Cayman Islands are regarded as a World leading destination for scuba diving and snorkeling; mostly because of the water clarity, year round warm water temperature and the Island's shore proximity to pristine underwater reefs.  You can take advantage of Grand Cayman's underwater beauty just a "few steps" away from the Port of George Town.

Eden Rock Snorkeling

What Is It?

Eden Rock and Devil's Grotto are located close together about 4 minutes away from the Cruise Ship Terminal.  Here you will find a magnificent coral formation in just 10 to 30 feet of water and fish everywhere!  You cannot fit all that fish in an aquarium!  This is Grand Cayman snorkeling at it's finest!

How To Get There

Walk to the right as soon as you get off the tender at either South or North Terminal.  Walk along the water passing the Blue Iguana, you will see the road taking a bend with beautiful pine trees overhanging the coast line.  Look for the sign for Club Paradise. (By now you have walked about 4 minutes.)  There you will find an easy entrance to the reef.

The Wreck of the Cali Wheelhouse

What Is It?

The Wreck of the Cali is an old freighter that sank right beside George Town Harbor.  It is now in pieces, resting in barely 20ft of water.  The Ship's ribs are exposed and scattered along the ocean's floor holding many different species of sponges and fish life.

How To Get There

Walk immediately to the left of the Cruise Ship Terminal.  You will pass by the Old Fort Monument and Lighthouse (don't look for a huge lighthouse, this one is barely 20ft high) on the waterfront.  You will see a cove where vendors are selling fresh fish on a little beach. (By now you have walked about 4 minutes)  You can get in the water right off that beach and snorkel to the little white buoys to the right just a few feet from shore.

Sea Turtle on Cheese Burger Reef

What Is It?

Cheese Burger Reef is so named due to the landmark found there.  Here is a hint, it's not two big arches...The Reef is spread out over 3 to 4 acres and the coral formation has some of the most vibrant colors found.  You can snorkel with turtles that frequent the reef in search of sponges.  This spot holds some of the most beautiful snorkeling in Grand Cayman.

Snorkeling the Wreck of the Gamma

What Is It?

The Wreck of the Gamma is another freighter that sank and crashed onshore right past George Town.  It is now in pieces, resting in barely 20ft of water.  The wreck is pretty neat but it's resting out of the water.  The beauty is found nearby the wreck with beautiful juvenile fish, sponges and shallow coral formations.

How To Get There

Walk to the left as soon as you get off the tender at either South or North Terminal.  This area is past the Wreck of the Cali and past Cheese Burger Reef so read above.  Keep walking past those two spots and you'll find a cemetery by a stop light.  Immediately after you will see a big beach area.  Walk to the beach and you will see the wreck out of the water.  There is a nice little beach there where you can enjoy sun tanning with a beautiful view of your Cruise Liner after a great snorkeling experience.  If you snorkel to the left of the beach and stay close to the shoreline you will be able to view huge Grand Cayman salt water Tarpons.
