The Cayman Islands are known the world over as a top-rate dive site because the clear, warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea are abundant with marine life. But you don’t have to be a diver to marvel at the marine life and the reef wall, the stingrays and the starfish. All you need to do is sign on with water-based tours in Cayman.
Colourful reefs teeming with coral and marine life make the Cayman Islands an ideal destination for snorkeling as well. Start with a Cayman Islands snorkeling tour that takes you to the beautiful Coral Gardens, where you will snorkel among a vast array of corals, sponges and tropical fish. It has been described as though you are swimming in a large aquarium! Coral Gardens is rated as one of the top snorkeling spots, so be sure your Grand Cayman excursion includes this site.
Calm, clear water means great snorkeling
Coral Gardens, which is accessible only on a tour or in a private boat, is in North Sound, which is sheltered by a coral reef. This means the water is very calm. It is also very clear, and though it is a small area, there is plenty of marine life to see. Among the marine life you are likely to see are turtles, barracuda, parrotfish, eels, squirrelfish and blue chromis, just to name a few. In addition to tropical fish, you will also see outstanding varieties of black corals and spiral whip corals.
Experience the underwater beauty of Cayman
The pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea and the tropical climate of Cayman offer the best possible conditions for snorkeling. The reef protection combined with the shallow depths of Coral Gardens is ideal for first-time snorkelers as well as for anyone who is drawn to the exotic beauty of marine life.
