Located on a private beach on the southwest end of Cayman Brac, Cayman Brac Beach Resort’s architecture reflects the quaintness and charm of the Caribbean.

Upon arrival, kick off your shoes, enjoy a cool rum punch, and bask in our island paradise painted with secluded beach vistas and hammocks sprinkled amidst sea grapes and coconut palms.

Diving Information

World Class Diving

Experience diving like never before. No shirt, no shoes, no worries. Discover the marvels of the Caribbean Sea with our convenient “valet diving” service. Allow our experienced diving staff, Reef Divers, to handle the burden of diving gear so all you have to carry are the memories. Relax and enjoy your ride on our custom-fleet dive boats while exploring the island’s elite diving sites. Submerge yourself in the pleasures of a dive as our team takes care of everything else. With this superior diving service, all you have to do is get on the boat.

We know your diving gear is precious and personal. That’s why all guests receive a dive bag at check-in so you can personally pack your gear. Once you’ve prepared your gear, leave its care and cleaning to our expert staff to eliminate diving distractions. On the day of your dive, just leave your bag outside of your room and our dive team will take care of the rest for you.

Forget the hassle of heavy tanks because our staff will change your tanks after every dive. At the end of a long dive, we will take care of everything, including rinsing BCD, Regulators, and additional diving gear using our special rinse tanks and drying rooms. Once you’ve experienced valet diving, a regular diving experience will never be the same.

Reef Divers is affiliated with PADI, SSI, and the Universal Referral Program. Reef Divers’ professional instructors and boat captains have the perfect balance for your dive safety and care for the environment, yet are committed to give you an unforgettable and completely unique Cayman Brac diving experience. They offer courses on everything from an introductory scuba dive through Dive Master, however all courses must be pre-booked with the exception of Nitrox. After checking in you’ll be asked to complete a history form and return it to the dive shop. Don’t forget your “C” card, you won’t be able to dive without it.

The dive rates include 2 or 3 one tank dives per day. The diving starts with a morning 1 tank wall dive. Your interval is spent on the boat while you move to a new dive site, where you will enjoy a 1 tank reef dive. Then it’s back to the resort for a hearty lunch, and then (optionally) back out for an afternoon 1 tank dive.  The full service dive shop also offers a full range of instruction courses, as well as film processing, custom underwater videos, still and video photo equipment repair and rentals, as well as film and batteries.

With the Brac’s proximity to Little Cayman as near as five miles away, the diving is equally as beautiful and much more undiscovered than that of its much better known Sister Island. And on packages that include 3 dives per day, a half-day trip over to dive Little Cayman’s unequaled Bloody Bay Wall is included at no extra charge

Personalized Valet Service

The on-site Reef Divers’ personalized valet services take the work out of diving so guests can enjoy underwater experiences at their own pace. Reef Divers has everything needed for the avid diver, including a fleet of modern customized dive boats, professional guides and dive instructors, plus a complete inventory of dive gear.

The dive staff will take care of your dive gear and get it ready for your next wonderful day of diving. Reef Divers provide the personalized valet dive services that many of our guests don’t even know they want until they experience it. Reef Divers takes the work out of your diving—handling the heavy lifting and care of your boat-dive gear, from your first dive with us through your last dive (unless you’d prefer to do it yourself). We rinse, dry, and store your BCD and regulator daily, so they’re set up and ready for your next day’s diving. The only finger you’ll have to lift is the one to point out your gear as you relax in the boat, ready to go diving.

At the top of the dock, we have separate rinse tanks for photo equipment, wet suits, and general dive gear, plus a drying room for wet suits so you don’t have to take them to your room.

Dive Preparation

Dive Boats

All of our dive boats were custom built for us for safety and diver comfort by Newton Boats in Slidell, Louisiana. They’re 42’ to 46’ in length, 16’ wide, and conform to the highest standards established by the American Bureau of Shipping. They’re powered by Caterpillar, John Deere, or Yanmar engines—all well known and trusted for their power and dependability. Cruising at 20 mph, you’ll quickly and comfortably arrive at dive sites.

Four boats in our fleet of 11 call Cayman Brac Beach Resort their home port: Big Sister, Little Sister, Ocean Sister, and Coral Sister. Each comfortably carries up to 20 divers and two crew members.

Dive Boat

Dive Locations

Cayman Brac has almost 70 named dive sites that offer enough variety for everyone. Enjoy little to no current and unlimited visibility as you explore beautiful walls, amazing swim-throughs, and gorgeous reefs with abundant marine life. No visit is complete without checking off a dive on our own artificial reef, the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts—a 330-foot long Russian frigate renamed and sunk in 1996. With the Brac’s proximity to Little Cayman as near as five miles away, the diving is equally as beautiful and much more undiscovered than that of its much better known Sister Island.

All of our dive sites are moored, which marks the beginning and ending points of that dive. Our dive masters will brief the location, establish dive limits, and draw a map of the tour they’ll lead. As long as divers remain in buddy teams and stick with the predetermined limits, it’s their option to follow the tour or go off on their own. For those who follow, the tour lasts 35 to 40 minutes. By the time they’re back at the mooring and know that the boat is overhead, most divers feel comfortable enough to continue exploring on their own until their time is up or they run low on air. We recommend that new divers or those who feel more comfortable following the tour remain on the boat and be among the last divers in the water.

Dive Schedule

In general, at 7:45 AM we begin briefings for our morning 2-tank boat dives and return to the resort for lunch. We begin briefings at 1:45 PM for the afternoon 1-tank boat dives.  Although most of our divers are guests staying at our resort on packages that include diving, if we have space we also sell individual dives a la carte on island.

For guests on dive packages, we offer morning boat dive excursions over to explore Little Cayman’s Bloody Bay Wall and other great sites – weather permitting. These are included at no extra charge. After the dives we go ashore at Little Cayman Beach Resort for lunch.

Divers on meal packages that include lunches enjoy our sister resort’s cuisine at no extra charge. Guest without prepaid lunches can choose to dine at the dining room buffet or a la carte at the bar. Payment is required at the time of service. The boat also stops for the afternoon 1-tank dive off Cayman Brac before returning to Cayman Brac Beach Resort. Divers who have not prepaid for the afternoon dive may pre-purchase and pay at the resort before departing or just sit out on the boat or snorkel the site.

Night boat dives are also offered 2 nights per week based on weather conditions and interest from our guests.  Night dives are not included in packages and can be purchased from the dive shop.

Digital Dive Forms

We have converted all our dive documents to digital forms – with the exception of the medical release anyone taking an in-water class from Reef Divers must still print and bring with them. This means that you can complete your dive registration forms online at your convenience prior to your departure. It should take about 10 minutes.

30 days prior to arrival, you will receive an email from us with your diver reservation number and the link. You can complete the forms on your mobile device or desktop. If using your desktop computer, please scan and save the front and back of your c-card which you will need to upload. If you will be using Nitrox, you can use it for both your regular c-card and Nitrox c-card.

Groups of up to 20 divers will all dive together on the same dive boat. Larger groups than that will have to split into 2 smaller dive groups.
