The Cayman's Islands are rated No. 1 for "best visibility" in the Caribbean and Atlantic in Scuba Diving Magazine's 2014 top 100 reader's choice awards. Preserved and pristine, Grand Cayman is perfect for divers and photographers seeking to get up close and personal with an abundance of invertebrate species and a wide variety of entertaining fish. The island boasts more than 50 dive sites including the only dive-able Russian warship in the Western Hemisphere, the 300' MV Captain Keith Tibbett's. Mosaics of colorful coral, rare sponges, swim throughs, walls dropping off to over 2,000 feet and seldom seen marine life.
This year our Fall trip is going to be to Grand Cayman. We are taking a small group to one of the unspoiled seascapes that has not been over dove. An exciting marine environment rich in corals and active with fish life. A busy population of colorful tropical fish as well as large groupers and jacks.
The group will be staying at the beautiful Cobalt Bay Resort - the only all-inclusive dive resort on the island. Check out their website athttp://www.cobaltcoast.com.
We have negotiated a very special package. The trip cost includes:
BONUS: Boat dive on USS Kittiwake (plus park fee), guided shore night dive and shore dive to the Guardian of the Reef (total $275.00 value)

We will have a meeting at the Center before the trip so that everyone can get to know each other and we can go over the details of the trip. The number of divers that can go on the trip is limited. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to go. A deposit of $250 is needed to hold a place on the trip for you. The remaining balance is due September 1. If you have any questions about the trip you can reach us at the Center, 516-796-6560.
Keep in mind that we will be offering some of our great Advanced Specialties courses during our trip. Our Advanced Open Water Diver program is a program designed to help you be the best you can. Certification is based on taking 4 of our Advanced Specialties and logging 24 dives. With the dives on this trip and the numerous club dives planned for Long Island, you should have no problem doing your logged dives to reach the needed 24. If you really want to be the best you can, plan to keep going after your Advanced towards your Master Diver Certification. This is the highest level of civilian certification. Master Diver Certification is awarded to divers who have done 50 logged dives, 4 specialties and taken Rescue Diver.
