East of Georgetown in the East End, there are three adjacent scenic snorkeling spots called Sunrise, Noon and Sunset. These boat-accessed snorkeling dives offer scattered coral formations with elkhorn coral and brain coral outline by purple sea fans. While snorkeling at Sunrise-Noon-Sunset dive spots, you may encounter hawksbill turtles, angelfish, peacock flounder and cowfish.
After a long day of snorkeling at the Sunrise / Noon / Sunset snorkeling spots, you might want to grab a cool, refreshing drink at Eagle Rays located waterfront at the Compass Point Dive Resort.
To reach the snorkeling on Grand Cayman Island by air, you will fly into the Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM). There are regular flights from Houston, Dallas and Miami. Once on Grand Cayman Island, the snorkeling dive sites are easily accessed by renting either a scooter or jeep, both of which are common means of transportation on the island. There is also a public bus that covers most regions of the island. When departing the Cayman Islands, there is a departure tax of $37.50USD. This tax may be included in the airline ticket, but you will want to verify in advance.
Overall, Sunrise-Noon-Sunset is the 9th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 24 snorkeling dives in Grand Cayman. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Sunrise-Noon-Sunset including Queens Monument, South Channel Garden, Barefoot Beach, Anchor Point and Morritts - Reef Resort.
