Ocean Frontiers dive shop offers scheduled Night Dives on Tuesday (Critter Dive) and Thursday (UV Glow Dive) every week. The Ultra Violet Night Dive is another signature trip offered by Ocean Frontiers, and another first in Cayman, that clearly demonstrates our dive shop's commitment to innovation and willingness to listen to our customers to discover new and interesting ways to explore our coral reefs.
Night diving is something all divers should try. If you haven't logged one yet, then our night dives are not to be missed. In particular, some of the most interesting marine life only comes out a night. Observe the nocturnal reef critters go about their business under the cover of darkness. Our night dives are very easy with a maximum depth of 25ft and at a sheltered site inside the lagoon where it is always calm without any surge or current.
The Night Dives depart from Ocean Frontiers' dock at Compass Point Dive Resort in East End, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. Departure time is based on sunset time and is typically between 5:30pm and 6:30pm depending on the time of year / season.
