People flock to the Cayman Islands for its climate and warm, clear ocean waters full of marine life. But what makes it so special as a watersports destination?
The Cayman Islands offers a wide array of water sports – from deep sea fishing to reef fishing, snorkelling, swimming with the stingrays, kayaking, waterskiing, jet-skiing, visiting Starfish Point, or just touring the islands by boat. Visitors line up for night tours of Bioluminescence Bay as well as daytime and night tours of local reefs and wrecks in the dry comfort of a submarine with large viewing windows.
The geography of the Cayman Islands makes it uniquely suited to just about every type of watersports (except perhaps surfing). Firstly, the three islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, are particularly flat and low-lying. The highest point (The Bluff, Cayman Brac) is a mere 50m (164ft) above sea level. With no nearby large landmass, no large bodies of freshwater, no rivers and, consequently, no runoff into the sea, the waters around the islands have amazing clarity and provide perfect conditions for activities such as diving and snorkelling.
