Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Sea View Hotel

Great shore dive with mainly coral reefs and marine life.

This is a good site for a night dive. The reef is a little worn as are most on the west side, but with the night some the critters (octopus and lobster) come out. Easy entry and no current. The lights from the restaurant and nearby Georgetown give a nice touch at night.

My wife and I stayed at the Sea View hotel for a week in May of 2004 and had a blast. We did about 6 dives on the Sea View Reef and loved everyone. Giant stride off the iron shore into the water and up the ladder when you exit. Nice and easy. Never had surge or surf. Only mild current on one dive. Just drop down in 6 feet of water after you enter and make your way out all the way to the wall if you want to scuba that far. We never went out past 50 feet of depth down the gently sloping coral. Great visibility at 50-100ft. 84 degrees in may. The coral is pretty healthy but the animal life is super! Turtles galore and just about anything in the reef fish/creatures ID book will be found here in about five dives. Don't miss a night dive here. The tourist submarine goes out every night here and you can hear it clearly during the dive. A small but professional dive shop (Treasure Island Divers) will rent anything you might want right by the water. The restaurant at the hotel will not disappoint before or after a dive. The diving is awesome and the facilities are, too. Do Eden Rock, Sea View Reef, Sunset Reef, and then Smith's Cove all in one day. Each shore dive is located in order about a quarter of a mile apart heading out of Georgetown on the right. Heck, I could dive all four or just one all week and never go anywhere else in GC!

Dove the Sea View 2 days after Charley hit Grand Cayman. Vis was still very good. Easy entry and exit. Great place for after dive refreshments. If you're willing to swim a little you can get to the wall from shore.
