Eagle Ray's Dive Bar & Grill - NOW OPEN!
East End, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands - “It’s the social heart of the Compass Point Dive Resort and Ocean Frontiers with a killer view of the lagoon,” says Steve Broadbelt of the newly opened Eagle Ray’s Dive Bar & Grill on Grand Cayman's East End, which served its first guests on July 26, 2013. Located dockside up on the main pool deck steps away from the shoreline with a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea, the open-air restaurant accommodates up to 49 people in a colorful, laid-back island atmosphere that features a thatched roof, yellow picnic tables and a modern and spacious kitchen.

New Aerial Image Base Map for East End

New Aerial Image Base Map for East End
For all you map geeks, this day could not come soon enough.  For the last 7 years we've had 2006 image data on Google Maps and Google Earth.  This image data is an extremely helpful resource for finding new dive sites and most recently, helping us track and log all of our Lionfish culling results.  The new base map also includes Compass Point Phase 2 and the new Hospital site in the Cottage village.  The Morritt's boat dock is also shown as complete and everything else just looks more up to date and greener.   Take some time and nose around on your virtual helicopter tour.  Some of the images are so clear, you can even pick out the mooring balls on the dive sites.  Let us know if you find anything interesting...
