5 Tips For Wall Diving For Beginner Scuba Divers – Grand Cayman (Watch Video)

Published

on

This Dive Instructor surprises his former Scuba Students with a check-in dive 5 YEARS AFTER certification! We drove up to Rum Point from Grand Cayman’s West Bay to get the drop on my friends Steve and Robin who had NO CLUE I was on island! The surprise totally worked. Hilarity and great diving ensued…

We dive Grand Cayman’s AWESOME North Wall – which drops 4000ft/1200m of vertical underwater topography (we didn’t go that deep, obviously, because I’m typing this…) As always, my trusty dive buddy @FindingMenno was along for the ride.

AND… we give you 5 pieces of advice for points to consider if you’ve never done a big wall dive before. Swimming out seeing shallow reef below you, over the precipice and the coral suddenly drops away to deep, dark water can make some people’s stomachs flip.

Whilst the underwater wall makes dive navigation relatively straight forward, there are definitely additional considerations to diving deep walls vs shallow reef.
