Diving 8 Days a Week, 55 Ways...

Ohh, I need to dive, babe
Guess you know it's true
hope you need to dive, babe
just like I need too.
8 Days a week....

We know, it's actually 7, but we stole and amended the lyrics from the famous Beatles song to announce... We are diving 7 days a week!!   

As of this Monday, July 13th, you don't have to wait until the weekend, you can dive the Eastern Frontier every day of the week. If you are looking for that extra motivation to head East or looking for a Cayman Islands lock down challenge during the summer of 2020, then we've thrown down the fin to see if there are any resident divers out there willing and able to accept our 'Green Short Challenge'. 

To date we only have 6 residents who have completed this challenge.  So why not earn your Shorts and a place in history on our 'dock walk of fame', with your own named bronze plaque! 

Next time you check in for your dive, pick up one of our free dive site slates and start punching-out each site visited.   We will even throw in an added bonus, by letting you add your previous East End dives to the slate.  Don't worry if you can't remember them, our Reservation System has a log of all of the dives you have completed with us, going back to 2003!   

The Green Short Challenge, to us, is the equivalent of earning your stripes, or in this case, earning your shorts. The name of the challenge comes from the iconic teal green shorts that forms part of the dive team's uniform.   Golfers dream of wearing the Green Jacket of the Masters, Cyclers desire about wearing the Yellow Jersey of the Tour de France, but in the scuba diving world, it is all about your pair of Green Shorts. Divers love the sense of accomplishment.

Once a diver checks off all the 27 wall dives and 28 shallow reef dives to complete the 55 East End dive sites, the celebrations begin. Each diver is inducted into the Green Short Dive Tribe at a ceremony by the boat dock.  The notable diver receives a special edition pair of Green Shorts, a custom medal and a bronze plaque is later cast with their name and then installed on the 'Divers Walk of Fame'. A delicious Green Short Cake is presented along with Champagne to share and celebrate with their fellow divers. 

For our COVID-19 Special, two-tank boat dives are being offered to Residents throughout the summer months at a prepaid rate of $75CI per two-tank dive- and this includes free Nitrox!!!
