Sunset Reef, while aptly named for its breathtaking sunset views, is more than just a visual feast. Located a quick 5-minute boat ride from the dock, this eastern reef is an ideal dive site for novice divers or those taking their very first plunge. Yet, it remains a favorite even among the seasoned, for its unique critter sightings and remarkable marine biodiversity. It's so mesmerizing that when Dr. Alex Mustard, a renowned underwater photographer, conducts his workshops in Cayman, Sunset Reef always features in his itinerary.
The reef is characterized by a flat sandy bottom that doesn't exceed 22 ft. It offers plenty of coral heads to explore, and if you’re a fan of critters, you're in for a treat. From the smallest macro life to unique critters, there's always something to captivate you at Sunset Reef. Every Friday afternoon, our 'Macro Mania' dive event witnesses divers spending a delightful amount of time underwater, hunting for the tiniest marine life.
A dive at Sunset Reef also introduces you to a slice of history. Resting right below the boat is an ancient anchor from the 1794 ten sails shipwreck event. Found in 1980 by Indiana University, this anchor was relocated to Sunset Reef, allowing divers like you to experience and appreciate a tangible piece of history. Sunset Reef is undoubtedly a must-add to your diving bucket list. Come explore this underwater marvel with us on a Night Dive or Macro Mania dive!
