Things to Do in Grand Cayman in June

Diving is one of the most rewarding experiences here. While you dive, you will get yourself acquainted with the outstanding diversity of the Grand Cayman resort's waters.

If you prefer, however, to remain dry while exploring the bottom of the Caribbean Sea, join the Atlantis submarine tour. The submarine submerges to the 30-meter depth, revealing underwater canyons, reefs, tropical fish and other sea life. Take the night tour to experience the kaleidoscope of colors you can't see during the day.
