Grand Cayman Snorkeling
Snorkeling in Grand Cayman Island is a fun, free and enriching way for beginners and experts alike to peek at the immense beauty of the underwater world. For the price of a drink at a swim-up bar you can rent mask, fins and snorkel for a day and create your own underwater sightseeing adventure.
Beginners can practice in the shallow waters near shore or anywhere with a calm surface and shallow sandy bottom.
Before swimming out to the reef, take a few minutes and become accustomed to the equipment and breathing through a snorkel. Rest on your back keeping your lungs fairly full to realize that you cannot sink in saltwater and become comfortable in the water prior to snorkeling where you are not able to stand up.
Top snorkel sites include: Smith Cove, Eden Rock, Starfish Point, Cemetery Beach and Cali Shipwreck.
