FEATURED:  Morritts - Reef Resort

Off the protected East End of Grand Cayman, there is a fun drift dive between the Morrits Resort and the Wyndham Reef Resort. While there is a protective fringe reef about 700 feet offshore, these East End waters are known for strong currents and surges. This drift dive is along a regular east to west current inside the protective fringing reef. The best place to start is located off White Sand Watersports beach with a swim about 200 feet offshore to catch the current, then continue northwest towards the Morritts Resort pier staying about 100 feet beyond the pier. Next, continue northwest towards the Wyndham Reef Resort pier staying about 100 feet off as well. Make sure not to get too far out since there is a channel cut in the fringing reef beyond that pier which has a strong outward current. After the pier, start angling in to shore before the end of the last blue roofed building of the Wyndham Reef Resort.
