Divetech Expedition to Grand Cayman’s 12-Mile Bank

Scuba Diving | Dive Training Magazine

An experience for technical divers is available to a rarely seen area of the Cayman Islands, or what is often called the fourth Cayman Island. Twelve miles (19 km) west of Grand Cayman is a pristine coral bank that rises from the depths of the Caribbean, but doesn’t break the surface of the water. The top of this isolated kidney-shaped reef formation is 90-100 feet (27-30 m) below the surface, and like the other islands, it features drop-offs that plunge thousands of feet to the ocean bottom. Depth and distance make the 12-Mile Bank inaccessible to most divers, but Divetech is taking a select group on a dive expedition August 19-26, 2017.

A dive package priced at $3,200 for a single room with king bed or $2,900 for a shared twin room includes seven nights of accommodations at Divetech’s Lighthouse Point Condo, five boat trips to 12-Mile Bank, round-trip airport transfers, gas and scrubber, breakfast daily at VIVO, lunch on the boat, unlimited shore diving at Lighthouse Point, and all taxes. This is a rebreather-only trip, and divers must hold a minimum certification of CCR Normoxic Trimix. A minimum of eight divers is required for the expedition to run. Deposits are fully refundable until June 1, 2017. Reservations are required and other restrictions apply.
