Clearly Cayman Dive Resorts put you just steps away from world-class diving. Our warm, clear Caribbean waters are teeming with marine life, making our resorts great vacation destinations at any time of the year. With a dive resort on each of the three Cayman Islands, no one knows the best diving spots better than we do. Our small, family-owned resorts will make you feel at home, with comfortable rooms, outdoor areas where you can socialize or find a private space of your own, al fresco bars where our friendly staff will remember your name and your favorite beverage, and delicious Caribbean-inspired meals. You’ll arrive as a friend and, forever after, you’ll be part of our family.
Quiet and intimate or near the action? At the small 24-room Cobalt Coast Resort on Grand Cayman, you don’t have to choose. Our quiet but convenient West Bay location is just a short ride from all the action and excitement of Seven Mile Beach and George Town—by rental car, cab, or public transportation. Before or after dining al fresco, enjoy your favorite beverage at Duppies, overlooking the Caribbean. And Reef Divers makes it easy to reach all the best dive sites, including the North Wall and the Kittiwake wreck.
Cayman Brac Beach Resort is a much-loved getaway for divers of all ages. Enjoy the casual ambiance of our 40-room resort and experience world-class diving, including the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts wreck, just a short Reef Divers’ boat ride away. Relax during non-dive time in our large, freeform pool and spa, or sip your favorite beverage at our Tipsy Turtle Bar’s top deck—the perfect spot for catching sunsets. Feeling adventurous? Hike the Brac’s nature trails, explore some of the island’s caves, or even try rock climbing on the Bluff.
Escape to Little Cayman Beach Resort, an intimate, even romantic, oasis offering bucket-list diving, including the Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park, done first class with Reef Divers. Nightlife revolves around our Beach Nuts Bar (karaoke anyone?) or just counting stars in the sky. Lush, tropical grounds are the hallmark of our 40-room resort that features a pool and spa, plus lounges and hammocks for reading, resting, or just enjoying the sea breezes and sounds of the surf.
Our photo pros evaluate contenders for photo of the year based on these primary criteria: Originality
Is this a photo of a subject we haven’t seen or does it show us a different perspective on subjects frequently submitted? Technical Skill
Are the lighting, focus, camera settings, and color “right” in taking the photo or corrected in post-production? Content
Is the subject artistically framed in the photo with the “hero” of the image being easily identifiable? Story
Does the photo tell an interesting story with an emotional impact that makes viewers want to “dive in” and learn more – preferably without requiring explanation? Bigger File Size is Better
Was this photo submitted in a file size large enough that it still looks sharp on a big screen (what our judges use to evaluate) or was it a big photo to begin with that was cropped to be very small to highlight the subject? If your photo is very small or if it contains a watermark, that may negatively impacts your opportunity to win So make your photo settings on your camera the highest resolution possible and omit the watermarks.
