As the largest of the three Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman delivers golden sunshine and warm Caribbean breezes for most of the calendar year. Tucked away on scenic West Bay, at the island’s northwest corner, Cobalt Coast is a unique Grand Cayman dive resort that lies off the beaten track, but invitingly close to renowned sites like the North Wall, Stingray City, and magnificent Seven Mile Beach. Visitors looking for superb underwater adventure in a stunning destination, need look no further than the comfortable accommodations, full-service diving, and ocean-front setting of Cobalt Coast Dive Resort.
The clean and spacious accommodations at Cobalt Coast come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but all include daily breakfast served fresh ocean-side (except self-catering accommodations), cable TV, central air-conditioning, and ceiling fans.
Guests can choose from one or two-bedroom ocean-front suites, garden or ocean-view hotel rooms, or the self-catering Garden Cottages that lie just steps from the resort’s amenities. With its full range of rooms, suites, and cottages, Cobalt Coast comfortably accommodates groups of two to six guests.
For a truly memorable Grand Cayman dive resort experience, we recommend a stay in the Mermaid Suite! Perfect for honeymooners, or anyone else in need of a romantic get-away, this unique penthouse promises 700 square feet of uninterrupted privacy, king-size bed, dual-basin bath, walk-in-closet, pair of HDTV’s, and top-of-the-world vantage point from its private balcony overlooking the sea.
Duppies Restaurant is Cobalt Coast’s full-service eatery that features made-to-order American breakfasts, fresh lunch selections, and spectacular, three-course ocean-side dining. Meal plans and all-inclusive options are available for purchase, and guests taking advantage of dive packages will enjoy two or three delicious meals daily.
Duppies not only offers great food in an open-air setting, it’s the perfect spot for catching sea breezes and sunsets, or for doing a little stargazing before bed. Dining choices are varied and tasty, and include a breakfast buffet, hand-formed burgers, wraps, and salads at noon, daily dinner specials, catering services, and late-night snacks at the bar.
Those Little Extras
When diving is over for the day, Cobalt Coast is just gearing up! The resort features a full-service bar with complimentary Wi-Fi, casual dining options, imported beers, and refreshing tropical drinks. Be sure to try their famous Cobalt Colada! Other resort amenities include a fresh-water pool, swimming and snorkeling off the resort’s ocean dock, and tours of fascinating local attractions like the Cayman Island Turtle Farm, and Cayman Motor Museum.
Everything A Diver Could Want
Surrounded by the Grand Cayman wall, this equatorial Eden gives divers access to more than 150 world-class dive sites. Cobalt Coast Dive Resort makes reaching many of these a breeze with their on-site, full-service scuba dive center. Reef Divers Valet Diving works out of roomy 42’ and 46’ custom Newton boats, with full-length gear lockers, rinse tanks and drying pegs, and support for semi-closed and closed-circuit rebreathers.
The resort’s exclusive concierge service offers packages with daily 2-tank boat dives, private charters, snorkeling excursions, PADI and SSI instruction, Nitrox, Trimix, and dive equipment rental. Reef Divers personnel even change out guests’ tanks after each dive, and clean and care for guests’ gear at the end of every outing. In fact, when it comes to the most convenient way to explore the abundant reefs of Grand Cayman Island, all a diver needs to do is climb on board!
Closer to shore, Cobalt Coast Dive Resort is the place to be for phenomenal shore diving opportunities (weather permitting) that include house reef access just steps from guest accommodations. For the more adventurous, the fabulous North Wall is only a short swim from the resort’s ocean dock, and underwater scooters are available to make getting there easier.
Best Reasons to Stay at a Grand Cayman Dive Resort
One of the biggest draws of the Grand Cayman region is the abundance of sea turtles, stingrays, and shipwrecks, and guests of Cobalt Coast Dive Resort don’t have to go far to find all of these exceptional features!
Nearby Seven Mile Beach hosts some of the island’s best dive experiences, including the wreck of the USS Kittiwake. Meanwhile, Stingray City’s shallow 12-foot dive is only minutes away, and not to be missed for the opportunity it offers to mingle with throngs of southern stingrays. Finally, nestled a mere 100 feet from shore diving access to the 6000-foot North Wall, Cobalt Coast Dive Resort is strategically placed for outstanding wall dives, and endless encounters with sea sponges, spotted eagle rays, and turtles galore.
