WELCOME TO GRAND CAYMAN KIDS SEA CAMP 

(New) Spring break 2019, Cobalt Coast, April 13th – 20th or April 20th – 27th & June 15-22 All inclusive.

Kids Sea Camp is coming back to Cobalt Coast Resort. Cobalt Coast, in Grand Cayman for years was one of our mainstays during our spring break and summer weeks. In fact, Cobalt was one of the original host resort’s of Kids Sea Camp some 17 years ago.

Three years ago, Reef Divers and Clearly Cayman purchased the resort and has brought new energy and life to one of the more unique resorts in the Caymans. The pool, the deck, and the rooms have been going through a remodel since 2017 and a complete construction will be finish by 2019.

Kids Sea Camp is excited to be back home in Grand Cayman. 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.  The resort has hosted over 30 weeks of Kids Sea Camp family weeks.

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 more like domestic flight

Getting to Grand Cayman is as easy as flying to any major city in the US. Almost every major US airport has a direct flight to Grand Cayman.

The main airport in the Cayman Islands, Owen Roberts International Airport, is located on the largest of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman. The sister island of Cayman Brac also has its own airport, Charles Kirkconnell Airport. These two airports serve as the Cayman Islands main ports of entry for visitors. Little Cayman is served by daily inter-island flights.

There are approximately 116 weekly flights into the Cayman Islands including 42 flights each week between Miami and Grand Cayman with connections to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Non-stop service from Miami is provided by Cayman Airways and American Airlines.

With 8 different airlines flying into Grand Cayman from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, it’s easier than ever to book your Cayman Islands experience!

Inter-island service between Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman is provided by Cayman Airways and Cayman Express, making the Cayman Islands travel quick and easy. 

Once your family is on 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 70's.
