Grand Cayman: Cobalt Coast Resort

WELCOME TO GRAND CAYMAN KIDS SEA CAMP 

Grand Cayman in Cobalt Coast Resort is one of our favorite destinations for a quick easy family getaway vacation.  In fact, Cobalt was one of the original host resorts for Kids Sea Camp 

Looking for a 2021 Cayman Island group trip: Our Kids Sea Camp Cayman Islands trips for 2021 will be held in Cayman Brac at Brac Reef Beach Resort.

2022 Spring Break: April 9th to 16th and April 16th to 23rd

2023 Spring Break: April 8th to 15th 

We provide and booked year-round dive reservations to all the Clearly Cayman Properties on Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.  If you want to book your family on a private family dive vacation in the Cayman Island, give us a call (803)-419-2556

Reef Divers and Clearly Cayman purchased the resort in 2017 and have brought new energy and life to one of the more unique resorts in the Caymans. The pool, the deck, and the rooms have been remodeled and a complete update will be finished by 2020. This is a small boutique-style hotel that sits right on the ocean-facing the North West side of Grand Cayman. It offers some truly awesome shore diving with a boat pick up right from the dock. 

One of my favorite things about Reef Divers is the Valet Diving service they provide every diver. This was a thing known only to the South Pacific Island resorts, but Reef Divers is stepping it up with class and service.  You just sit down on the dive bench and wait to have your gear adorned. Stand up and giant stride off into the calm blue Caribbean Sea. It is pampered diving for sure, but our grandparents, divers with hip or knee replacements, and even those that just love to be pampered can’t get enough of it. The resort has two stories of room,  Walkout to the pool on the first floor, and beautiful ocean views on the second.  We create a wonderful small intimate group with lots of Karaoke fun, slide shows, and Island tours.  You will surely enjoy Grand Cayman for the next family dive vacation.

Our founder Margo Peyton has spent nearly 25 years of her life living in or visiting on the big island of the Caymans. And Cobalt Coast is very much home for our company. Robbie Peyton was born in Grand Cayman, became a PADI Dive Instructor in Grand Cayman. The Peytons continue to call the Cayman Islands their home away from home.

Diving sites

Sting Ray City: One of the most common questions we hear is "can I drive to Stingray City?" The answer is "Not quite." Stingray City has been described as the world's best 12-foot dive. You'll find Stingray City in the shallows Grand Cayman's North-South. It is just inside a natural channel that passes through the barrier reef and Barker's National Park crossing the North Sound from Morgan's Harbor to Rum Point located on the other end of the Island. So, the only way you can get to Stingray City is by boat.

Kittiwake: Snorkel or dive on Grand Cayman's newest wreck site - the ex-USS Kittiwake. Sitting in 65 feet of water with the superstructure only 15 feet deep, this wreck perfectly situated to be enjoyed by both snorkelers or by divers. This is one of the easiest wreck dives to do in the Caribbean. An excellent wreck for beginning divers of all ages.

It’s the perfect place for enjoying the sea breezes, watching sunsets, or just enjoying the stars fill the night sky. For more casual lunches, dinners, or late-night snacks, order from the menu at our bar.

Once your family is on the island

Kids Sea Camp will arrange for all transfers to Cobalt Coast or you can rent a car at the airport. Be aware if you are renting a car it's an English Island so don't drive on the wrong side of the road!

 

Welcome to the Miami of the Caribbean, but it's on island time

Grand Cayman is the most modern of the Caribbean island Kids Sea Camp takes vacationing families. Renting a car is the best way to see the island. And there is plenty to do besides diving such as; snorkeling, Charter fishing, shopping in Georgetown, simply sitting on the seven-mile beach or checking at a local Rum shop. The list can go on and on.

Here are a few of the unique attractions on Grand Cayman

Hell: Hell is located just a few miles from Cobalt Coast Dive Resort. It's about 30 minutes by walking or 5 minutes by car. You can stop off in Hell and meet the Devil himself, Mr. Ivan Farrington. He's quite a character and he'll enjoy the hell out of you stopping by to say hi to him.

The Cayman Turtle Farm: Island Wildlife Encounter first opened its doors in 1968 - becoming the first commercial venture to domesticate Green Sea Turtles. Since then the Farm's research and conservation experts have seen the release of over 31,000 Green Sea Turtles into the wild – and they have been gratified to witness the return of some of these turtles back to Cayman's beaches to lay their own eggs.

The unique facility has also become Cayman's largest land-based attraction hosting more than 200,000 visitors each year. Educational, cultural and entertainment programs are consistently being created and updated to enhance the fascinating Cayman Turtle Farm experience.

Camana Bay: The island calls it the newest city on the island, but really it's a shopping center with excellent shops and restaurants. It's a great way to enjoy an afternoon after diving — that's even a movie theater in the shopping area.

Cayman Motor Museum: When at Cobalt Coast Resort you really need to pop over to the Cayman Motor Museum. Cobalt Coast is just a few minutes away from the Cayman Motor Museum where you can see Grand Cayman's first car or one of the original Batman cars from the '70s.
