We also have 2 great shore diving locations, with reefs teaming with marine life - perfect dives to compliment your boat package and enjoy the marine world. Our shops at Lighthouse Point and at Cobalt Coast Dive Resort have house reefs in the 30 - 60 feet range that are abundant with sponges and corals, fish and offer excellent night dives right off shore. Plus the deep wall, only 10 minutes offshore, offers a natural multi-level dive for those more adventurous.
Divetech dive boats are 100% computer profiles, offering 2 x 1-hour dives and complimentary dive computers are provided. Visiting the North Wall most of the time (weather dependant) you'll enjoy some of the best sheer walls that Cayman has to offer. Two dive Instructors will guide you (although you are allowed as buddy teams to run your own profiles) and a top side support Instructor will be watching and helping out as needed. The custom dive boats are equipped with fresh water showers, camera tables, camera rinse bucket, mask rinse bucket, towels and all the safety equipment that should be in place! Iced bottles water and orange slices are available - and we're adding hot drinks for those sparse rainy days:)

A Wonderful Underwater World Introduction
Visit Date: July 2009
If you want to relax the sand and the sun of the Seven Mile beach of Grand Cayman is excellent.
But the real pearl of the Caymans is under the sea.
We have never tried scuba in our life before, so we decided (by chance) to take our first "Discovery Scuba" course for all the family at the Divetech - Lighthouse.
We had Art as instructor, who was so patient and really good to help us to move for the first time our fins under the crystalline Cayman's sea.
We were so happy about our first experience that we took 4 more dives in the following days with Art.
Art was great, but also all the staff is extremely professional.
All our dives were shore diving with an easy enter/exit from their jetties (at Cobalt cost and Lighthouse locations) even for newbie as we are.
We also rent the equipments (regulators and BCD's) and I can say that they were in a good condition so that we could concentrate in balancing our body and watch the marine life.
The visibility was amazing (I guess 25-30m / 80-100ft) and we met many barracudas, octopus, stingrays, sea turtle, coral shrimp, many other tropical fishes, very nice corals and fabulous sponges.
The icing on the cake was that we got the course only for all 3 of us and that we had two instructors: Art plus an assistant instructor !!!
Not to mention also the kindness of the managers (Jay and Arie) that we had the chance to meet. Good luck for their new impressive entrepreneurial design, as a matter of fact they are expanding the two locations (Lighthouse/CobaltCoast) with new brand buildings for the joy of the scuba travellers.
All in all we do recommend Divetch, we only regret, when we were back to Italy, that we had not enough time to make more dives with them and "dream from real" looking how superb was the sight of the mini walls life.

Lighthouse Point Diving
Visit Date: July 2008
Lighthouse Point has recently built condos and added new divers facilities. The place looks great!
Lighthouse Point is located towards West Bay, near the Turtle Farm and is a short drive, maybe 15 minutes from the seven mile beach area.
Shore diving to the wall and Reefs with abundant life. Access to the water by sturdy ladder, the water is rarely choppy and its easy access.
Staff are super knowledgeable and expert divers. Swim to the wall is a good ten minutes and while its not the most spectacular wall experience in Cayman, it is a nice dive to do, the coral 'on the way' to the wall is abundant once you swim past the sand flats.
Set up area for tanks is the best, tons of space and purpose built.
Quality Location and company.

Great Diving Experience
Visit Date: November 2009
My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Cobalt Coast Dive Resort and dove with Divetech November 2008. We were supposed to go to Little Cayman, but the hurricane forced us to change our plans. We had a wonderful experience, both with the resort and the dive operation. I loved the briefings before the dives and the drawings of the site. All of the dive masters were very experienced and helpful. Would dive with them again!

Once Again, A Very Special Dive Experience
Visit Date: July 2009
We've just returned from a week long dive trip to Grand Cayman, which was booked through DiveTech, whom we've used on each of our previous trips to Cayman. Our experience this time was even better than before!
Originally, we had booked ourselves into one of the new condos at Lighthouse Point, knowing that they may or may not be ready. Unfortunately, the not all was as Nancy Easterbrook (owner/manager) would have liked, so they very graciously made room for us at the sister site Cobalt Coast. We stayed in one of the two bedroom Villas across the road from the main hotel. A home away from home.
Many of the staff have remained since our last visit, and their experience, knowledge of the area, graciousness and humour were even more evident this time. We took two tank boat dives on five of our days, along with a Sting Ray City trip, and shore dives at both Cobalt Coast and Lighthouse Point.
The Boat Captains (Christian, Javan and Lee) each picked dive sites that were either specifically requested by a diver, or suggested sites they knew none of the divers had previously visited. This allowed us all to see something 'new' each time. They each gave excellent briefings on the sites, and stressed the safety aspects of each dive. On a day that was rather rough (a front was moving through), Lee did his best to keep us in the calmest waters possible until we reached the site. I know we were all much more comfortable because of it! Sea sickness is not fun :-(
The DiveMasters that also accompanied us were also extremely helpful in answering questions, helping out, and suggesting some good ways to become a better diver all around. Simon, Sally, Sharon, Susan and Art (who will have to change her name to start with S) are to be commended. They made a good dive even better
In most cases, the captain led the dive with the dive master pulling up the rear. For the second dives (<60 ft) divers were given the choice of being guided or going off on their own - always with the reminder of the profile time and depth and the emphasis on safety for all.
Between dives, there were towels, oranges and always plenty of water to drink. We were never rushed, and always assisted when it appeared we needed it.
All in all, DiveTech is an extremely professional operation that emphasizes safety, and makes the diving experience relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Very Friendly and Helpful
Visit Date: March 2009
Dive Tech on the premises of Cobalt Coast Grand Cayman is excellent. It has been getting bad reviews, but not true! They are very conscientious of needs and check frequently to make sure divers are happy. They tend well to beginners and advanced divers alike. Our daughter had ear troubles and they went extra steps to help her have a successful dive with great patience. Another day she was sea sick and again they went above and beyond to help her adjust and make the dive. They even shortened the return trip and had a van pick us up further down shore to limit her sea time.You handle and prepare all yourself, but they are there to assist if anything is needed. Great shore diving at Lighthouse and off the dock at Cobalt too.
