03/03/2012 Stephanie (Avg: 4.45 Review) - Easy entry in central Georgetown. Right by the cruise ship port. Busy on days when a ship is in town. Huge tarpon at entry! Can be a long swim...but with fins it is better. Worth the time! Went back 2 times! There is a floating trampoline for the kids too! Saw barracuda, few jellyfish, lots of coral, silversides in the caves. We only snorkel, but it is fun to see the divers below you in the caves.

08/27/2005 Brett (Avg: 5.00 Review) - Great place again to dive. Like many previous viewers have said, watch what you touch so you don't destroy the marine life. Lots of marine life, and the swim throughs and caves are great. There is very little or no surge at all, and the facilities aren't bad here. The Depth gets to 50-60 at the end of the reef.

03/29/2005 Gary Harmon (Avg: 3.27 Review) - Snorkeled this location in 2004 & 2003. The area is beat to death close to shore, so a long swim is required. You will be rewarded with many fish and good coral & caves. Watch the divers below. Lots of tarpon and stoplight parrotfish near shore & in the caves. Have also seen a southern stingray and turtle here. Love2snorkel

02/10/2005 Dayne Buddo (Avg: 4.46 Review) - This dive site is one of the most accessible ones I have been to. It is a short swim (about 50 yards) from the Eden Rock Dive Facility which is a well-equipped dive centre and provides easy entry into the water. There are several tunnels where very large tarpons congregate. Groupers are seen sometimes and of course, turtles are very frequently spotted. The reef is beaming with marine fishes, but of course, look out for barracudas. It is a good site to navigate, even without a compass. You don't have to worry about boats as the area is demarked and no boats are allowed in. It is a great dive site for a novice diver, not to mention an excellent place for a night dive.

11/08/2004 Jason NYC (Avg: 4.18 Review) - Shore diving doesn't get much easier than this. Full facilities with dive shop, rentals, air, lockers, bathrooms, and easy as pie to navigate. Depths to about 40 feet, great visibility almost always around 50-70 feet and cool rock formations. Tons of fish and more. A great place for fish watchers and newbie divers to venture out on your own for the first time after certification. Bring thick booties as urchins are everywhere on the bottom by the entrance. A small beach area and great snorkeling for your family too. If you are visiting Cayman on a cruise boat, skip the boat diving and walk here to dive for the day. It takes about 5 minutes to get here from the cruise port area by foot. Just look for the big apple sign that says "Eden Rock." No current and usually very calm. Eden Rock doesn't charge for diving but they won't let you bring outside tanks in so expect a "small fee."

03/19/2004 Anonymous (Avg: 3.85 Review) - Great Snorkeling site. They have an on-site Scuba and Snorkel facility for rentals and arrangements. There are stairs for entry into the water. If there are waves, it can be a little tough to navigate and tough to get your fins on. Watch out for sea urchins. Wish I were there now!

07/02/2003 Brett LeFever (Avg: 4.59 Review) - Basically almost same as Devil's grotto. Visibility is always great and the fish are huge back in the caves.
