with Southern Cross Club
Southern Cross Club, the best Cayman Islands Dive Resort, offers world class diving in one of the most renowned dive destinations and is regularly featured in lists of top dive destinations around the world. Little Cayman has a lot to offer, for beginners to experienced divers alike. From shallow reefs teeming with life, to sheer vertical walls overgrown with corals and sponges. With three marine protected areas and being an international shark sanctuary, fish life is prolific and shark sightings are frequent. With an average visibility of eighty to a hundred feet, an average temperature in the low eighties and generally little to no current, the Island offers some of the best conditions for diving, and some of the best dive sites in the Cayman Islands.
The Southern Cross Club was founded in 1958 and is well established as a Cayman Islands diving resort. We gained prominence for pioneering diving on the island, and discovered and named a lot of the dive sites around Little Cayman that are still in use today!
The dive department at our Little Cayman dive resort consists of a multinational team of friendly, experienced, professional dive staff under the leadership of our dive manager, who has over 33 years of diving experience in locations all around the world and more than 11,000 logged dives. The team strives to provide an exceptional diving experience which is fun, while still being safe and environmentally conscious. All dive certification options (through PADI) are available to become a qualified diver.
There are a huge variety of dive options for our dive guests in virtually all weather conditions. Some moorings are a mere 10 minute boat ride from Southern Cross’s dive dock, and others might be a half hour ride or more, but you will never get tired of the pristine beauty of Little Cayman’s world famous wall dives and reefs
Our experienced team will ensure your diving experiences are best on the island. Taking care of all your diving requirements, in-depth dive briefings, and the best dives on offer.
Southern Cross Club has blazed the trail for comfort and service with our two custom build dive boats; Lucky Lady our 36’ Newton and Lucky Devil our 36’ Sea Hawk. With a maximum of 15 and 14 guest divers respectively, our boats are comfortable and easily accommodate underwater photographers. On board our boats you’ll find oxygen and first aid kits, the REEF Fish, Coral, and Creature ID books, marine heads, fresh water, and fresh fruit and granola bars during dive intervals.
Southern Cross Club Guest Reviews
It's like coming home!
We were told about diving in Little Cayman and to stay at Southern Cross Club. We were not disappointed at all! The resort was small with only 14 bungalows and two dive boats. Beautiful beach and amazing reefs and wall diving. The staff were so wonderful and the dive masters and boat staff were so knowledgeable and helpful. Mike is a master diver with so much passion and knowledge about diving and the reefs in Little Cayman. The accommodations were very nice and clean...right on the beach! The food was quite good and the Chefs and staff went overboard to ensure we had whatever we wanted to eat. We would highly recommend this dive island and this resort. Many of the people we met have been coming there for years, year after year.
Our Favorite Dive Resort
We just finished our (6th, 7th?) stay at Southern Cross Club. We had a fabulous 11 days of diving and enjoying this beautiful island and resort. We were lucky enough to dive both sides of the island, and see many beautiful creatures large and small - from pipefish and pipe horses to turtles and sharks......
Spent two glorious weeks diving and staying at this incredible place!!
I cannot speak highly enough about the resort, the food, the diving and especially the staff! The health of the reef here is unmatched in the Caribbean. We enjoyed every moment of our vacation! I would love to thank every person who works here for how they treated us and took care of every little detail to make this the best vacation of our lives. We cannot wait to come back!! If you love great diving, with incredibly skilled dive masters, great food and super attentive staff in paradise, Southern Cross Club is here for you. Go!!!!! You can thank me later!!!
