COMPASS POINT & OCEAN FRONTIERS


Compass Point sits at the edge of some of the best diving in the Cayman Islands (Compass Point)

The fully air-conditioned Compass Point has the facilities and service levels expected from a resort that usually caters for demanding guests and is on-site with Ocean Frontiers, at the end of East End Village. Compass Point, completed in June 2004, consists of 28 luxury condominiums, all with large balconies. The original condominiums all enjoy uninterrupted views across the private beach out over the ocean. The newest condominiums completed in December 2010 sit just behind and over the road from the dive shop. The dive boats leave from the end of the resort’s dock just a short distance from your room.

Accommodation is in one-bedroomed or two-bedroomed condominiums. Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, living room and dining area, along with a private patio or balcony. In the living room area there are two full-sized twin beds that pull down from the wall. One-bedroomed apartments have a queen-sized bed in one bedroom and one bathroom. Two-bedroomed apartments have a queen-sized bed in one bedroom and most have a queen-sized bed in the second room though some are set up with two twin beds in the other. They have two full bathrooms. The bathrooms are all fitted with Whirlpool Jet baths: the only way to wash away a day in the ocean! Each apartment has a washing and drying machine, dishwasher, cable TV, DVD player and wireless broadband Internet access throughout the complex (digital photographs can be emailed home while sitting by the swimming pool!). Guests staying at Compass Point may also use the pool, kayaks and mountain bikes. Child minding can be arranged for an hourly fee of around US $12, payable locally.

East End Village has a true Caribbean character. In the village there is a supermarket and also a number of shops and eateries. There are a variety of restaurants and bars in the area. The package price includes a rental car, which makes reaching the East End easy and means that you can explore this fabulous island and make the most of your stay. There is currently nor restaurant or bar at Compass Point.

Ocean Frontiers are one of the best diving outfits in the business: they are a modern dive operation with old style Caymanian hospitality. They have specifically designed their own boats for the local conditions and take a maximum of 12 divers (and no more than 3 buddy teams per guide). The boats all have dedicated camera tables and camera-only rinse tanks. Photographers are usually allowed/encouraged to do their own thing, although this is always at the discretion of the dive staff. Fresh fruit, biscuits and warm towels are offered after each dive. On return to the dock, the staff will take your gear and wash and dry it, before loading it back onto the boat for your next trip. It is no surprise that they have received the prestigious Readers’ Choice Award from Rodale’s Scuba Diving Magazine on many occasions. Ocean Frontiers blend their own Nitrox and for those who enjoy the technical side of diving, they are a GUE Technical Facility. All diving is done in small groups.

Diving is done as two-tank sessions, either in the morning or in the afternoon. If you choose to make this into a four-tank day a computer is mandatory. Three-tank dive safaris are operated on Wednesday only. Stingray City/Sandbar trips are offered every Friday afternoon. Kittiwake trips are scheduled every Tuesday afternoon for a one tank dive from West Bay Public Dock. Night dives are scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday. Nitrox is available. Private divemasters/guides can also be arranged.
