The Cayman Islands are made up of three lush islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman; all surrounded by some of the bluest water in the world. Part of the British West Indies, the Cayman Islands are nestled approximately 200 miles south of Cuba. There is plenty of snorkeling, diving, sailing and boating to be done on all three of the islands. Grand Cayman is the largest and most populated of the three islands. The island is approximately 22 miles long and anywhere from one to seven miles in width. The population on the island at any given time varies greatly due to the high numbers of tourists occupying the island, but averages approximately 36,000. The Cayman Islands are probably best known for being one of the world’s top dive sites. Many tourists come down solely to explore the vast underwater life. So, if you’re a diver, you’re in for a real treat, and if not, we will have you diving in no time. The Cayman Islands are a British Colony with a Governor appointed by the British Government. The capital is George Town, located approximately 26 miles from Cayman Kai. George Town is the “center” of activity on the islands. Duty-free shops, tourists, restaurants and off-shore banking are all abundant in George Town.
