Compass Point Dive Resort | Grand Cayman East EndLocation, Location Location - Compass Point Dive Resort's location on the East End of Grand Cayman did not happen by accident and was carefully selected with the scuba diver in mind. They are the furthest away from the airport, furthest away from the nightlife, furthest away from the islands capital, but closest to the best reef and wall diving Grand Cayman has to offer.

Relax.. when you are not scuba diving, layout on the beach or in a hammock, have a BBQ or enjoy the view of the crystal blue Caribbean Sea from your own private balcony. This is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy your vacation.
 
For guests at Compass Point Dive Resort there are many dining options. Guests often take avantage of having a full kitchen in their condominium for some meals and do it yourself and turn up the heat on their commercial grade outdoor BBQ grills. Eagle Ray's Bar & Grill is on-site and open for breakfast (included), lunch and dinner. There are also several restaurants nearby, a different one for everyday of your trip.

Ocean Frontiers Dive Shop offers diver freedom, diver safety and diver adventure in every sense of the word.

From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced diving with Ocean Frontiers has stated that Caymanís East End is one of the Caribbeanís premier dive spots. The Cayman Islands have strict marine conservation laws to protect the underwater environment. Many of their 55 dive sites are within a short boat ride, including the legendary Jack McKennyís Canyons Ė one of East Endís famous dive sites.

Here, corals, canyons and swim throughs lead you thorough into pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6,000ft. These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. The 80 -86 degree water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater photographs are taken in the Cayman Islands than in all other Caribbean destinations.

The Cayman Islandsí trademark turtles are common sight and eagle rays, angelfish, reef sharks and grouper count among the 500 species of fish that have been documented here.
