The local dive community has been highly engaged with the Cayman Islands Government and Department of Tourism with the aim of re-opening Scuba Diving on the island as soon as possible, but most importantly, as safe as possible. 

Thankfully, we’re now allowed back in the water, albeit with some restrictions…

  • Scuba diving and snorkeling are permitted. People are not allowed to rent any scuba or snorkeling equipment, except dive tanks or buoyancy control equipment, to any customer for any scuba diving activity including training.
  • You may use a boat for diving, though you may only have up to ten people per boat (including dive staff). If boats are congregating, the number of persons gathering must not exceed ten total before Sunday, 19 July. There are no exceptions to this maximum number of persons allowed in one boat or to gather in multiple boats, including for children and members of the same household.

Guidance for Divers

  • Divers are required to bring masks and wear them when required
  • Rental of equipment is not yet permitted, so divers need provide their own gear (except for tanks and weights)
  • Divers should submit a completed DAN Health Declaration Form for COVID-19 prior to diving
  • Divers who report symptoms of COVID-19 will now be allowed to dive
  • Divers are required to sanitize their hands with alcohol-based sanitizer prior to boarding a boat and when using the
    ladder
  • Personal belongings should all be contained within your own bag
  • We encourage divers to bring their own water bottles
