Cayman's Best Shore Diving Cayman’s best value 2 tank dive! Eden Rock Diving Center is situated a short swim from two of the world’s best shore dives Eden Rock and Devil’s Grotto. The coral reefs rise in vertical cliff faces from a 40 foot sand bottom to within a few feet from the surface. Both Eden Rock and Devil’s Grotto are honey combed with caves, tunnels and grottos inhabited by many tropical fish, coral and sponges including Silversides and Tarpon. The entry is down a diving ladder is into 4 feet of clear and calm Cayman water the bottom gently slopes out to 15 feet the rises to within a few feet of the surface before dropping to a sand bottom. There are many tunnels running through the reef with openings in the coral allowing sunbeams to light the way.

We've snorkeled all over the Caribbean. Eden Rock has one of the easiest access (several ladders) to the water. The water was clear with lots of beautiful fish and coral. We had brought our own gear, and they even have an area to rinse off...More

When we heard the silversides were in at Eden Rock we did not hesistate. Tank rental and gear up were followed by an easy entry off the pier. A short surface swim taking less than five minutes and we descended. The silversides were right there....More

We have now visited Eden Rock three times in two years, and without a doubt, it is the best dive shop we've experienced. Too, it is the best "from the shore" snorkeling on Grand Cayman. The staff is extremely helpful and even agree to "look...More

For experienced divers this is a very easy dive. Don't let that dissuade you though, because it's also a very enjoyable dive with many swim throughs and tunnels. Saw school of squid. Both Edens Rock and the Devils Grotto are only 45 feet deep. If...More

hi there, we are coming in March via cruise and thinking about making our way there for a quick snorkeling trip before our "cruise excursion" at noon. Couple of questions: 1. Do you have snorkel equipment to fit a 10 year old? 2. Can we still see some good sealife without going to see (my kids would probably prefer 3-5')? 3. Is there an onsite restaurant open before lunchtime, like around 10am? Thanks!

Agree with all of the other answers. We ate at Creperies which was very good and very close by.

Looking forward to returning to Eden Rock again this year....Would appreciate input on the following since I don't remember much about our last snorkel adventure except the gorgeous fish! Is there just one ladder to enter or another to walk down to the snorkeling area? I'm a decent swimmer, but a bit worried about being in the middle of boat traffic while snorkeling and possible rough water. Are Devil's Grotto and Eden Rock far from each other to snorkel? Thanks

Eden Rock and Devil's Grotto are about 100 yards apart. Eden Rock is about 500 feet from the 2 ladders and is marked by a white buoy. Both spots are away from boat traffic. The best times to go there are when there are few... More
