So you've seen elephants in Africa and walked the Great Wall. Hiked to Machu Picchu? Done. Been awe-struck by the Great Pyramid? Ho hum. Of course, you ticked Rome and Paris from your to-go-to checklist a long time ago.

And the Cayman Islands are next on your itinerary. You are looking forward to doing what most tourists to this part of the beautiful Caribbean enjoy doing – taking in the sun at its pristine beaches and snorkeling, diving, and sailing in the azure waters.

How about doing something different?

The jeep safari to view zebras and giraffes is so done and dusted. It’s time to come onboard for a submarine safari, and that too, at night.

You would have already heard from those who have visited the Cayman Islands before about its astonishing and beautiful marine life. Unlike many tourist tales, this is no exaggeration.

The underwater world around the Cayman Islands is teeming with marine life of all shapes and sizes and colors – from stingrays to crabs to octopuses to sponges – in crystal-clear waters that offer excellent nighttime visibility. As the sun sets, the sea offers a totally different experience as nocturnal creatures come alive.

Crabs, moray eels, and lobsters, which were hiding during the day, come out to hunt in an aquatic extravaganza. The reef comes alive with hard corals and their polyps even as the bioluminescence is a sight to behold.

Immerse yourself in this world without getting wet by going 100 feet below the sea in a submarine. Cayman Islands Submarines takes you up close and personal to this wondrous world in air-conditioned comfort and total safety. For an hour and a half, you can gaze through the viewport as predatory fish swim by and the coral showcase the complete spectrum of colors.

The submarine light bathes the marine life and seabed in a luminous glow as the submarine goes to within six feet of the reef and the knowledgeable tour guide introduces you to the waters at night.

You can always go scuba diving at night in the Cayman Islands. But if you are a recreational diver, don’t know how to swim, or are visiting with family, the nighttime submarine dive is an unforgettable way to explore the depths around the islands. Even experienced divers can take the submarine to savor their element in a relaxed manner, and simply, for the beautiful memories it helps you create.

Clearly, the night life of the biggest cities is no competition.
