Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – The Cayman Islands has once again been recognized by the scuba diving industry as one of the Caribbean’s premier dive destinations. SCUBA DIVING magazine recently released its “2015 Reader’s Choice Awards” and named the Cayman Islands as the Caribbean/Atlantic region’s “Best Overall Diving” destination, among numerous other accolades. Further notable awards include First Place wins in the “Best Underwater Photography,” “Best Marine Environment,” and “Best Wall Diving” categories, and Second Place wins for “Best Visibility,” “Best Macro Diving,” and “Best Overall Destination.”

“When divers visit the Cayman Islands, they become a part of the community and have the opportunity to immerse themselves in its rich culture, history and traditions,” shared Minister of Tourism Hon. Moses Kirkconnell. “As a prime dive destination, we are so pleased to have a thriving dive community who care for our underwater splendor and act as ambassadors for the Cayman Islands. Earning awards such as these are a reflection of the valued partnerships between the dive operators, tourism and government who all must continue to work together to ensure that our dive sites thrive and draw visitors from around the globe in the future.”

Renowned worldwide as the birthplace of recreational diving, the Cayman Islands draws scores of dive enthusiasts year after year with a vast array of destination attractions that extend far beyond the water. Grand Cayman alone is home to more than 200 restaurants and numerous luxury hotel properties, while all three islands, defined by a local community famous for its kindly disposition, offer everything from horseback riding to swimming with stingrays.

“The Cayman Islands has so much to offer those who visit us,” said Director of Tourism, Rosa Harris. “Beyond our beautiful walls, incredible aquatic life and dramatic wrecks, we can also offer those visitors accommodations at top-rated dive resorts and even a year’s worth of dive sites that fit any skill level. The dive industry is an integral part of the Cayman Islands’ culture and we are thrilled that it has been recognized by the international community.”

Looking forward in 2015, the dive industry hopes to entice new divers to visit the Cayman Islands during Legends and Lions, a month-long scuba showcase offering various vacation packages and an opportunity for the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame members and new 2015 inductees to come together in a beautiful diving paradise.

Located 480 miles south of Miami in the vibrant tranquillity of western Caribbean, this trio of tiny islands is a premier destination for discriminating travellers, honeymooners and families. World renowned for its idyllic beaches and diving spots, and recognized as a sophisticated, diverse financial centre, the Cayman Islands offer spectacular recreational opportunities along with warm, impeccable service.
