20 Years of Diving Cayman's Frontier 1996-2016

20 Years of Diving Cayman's Frontier 1996-2016
Two decades of diving on the frontier of Grand Cayman's East End has been an incredible journey, only made possible by our loyal customers.  We have acheived many milestones over the last twenty years and are excited about what the future holds above and below the surface over the next 20 years.    In 1996 we opened our doors as the only independant dive operator servicing the East End of Grand Cayman.  Until 1996, the only other way to dive the East End was to stay at either the Dive Lodge or the Tortuga Club.   It wasn't possible to stay on the West side and dive the East End - this is how Ocean Frontiers got its start.  With our brand new dive boat, Nauti-Cat, an old Cayman style building for our dive shop and a big 9 seater Dodge van, we had our very first customer on Valentines day,...

How Green are your shorts?

How Green are your shorts?
Ocean Frontiers staffers in company teal green swim shorts are a familiar fixture on Grand Cayman’s remote East End, manning the dive shop at the Compass Point Dive Resort or driving the dive boats and guiding dives. Those signature Ocean Frontiers green shorts have become a “hot ticket” item and status symbol among the company’s die-hard customers. Guests can win their own pair of green shorts if they dive all 55 dive sites at East End first – it’s called the “Green Shorts Challenge”. “My goal in starting the challenge was to get my customers interested in the diversity of diving on this side of the island because I thought some of them weren’t seeing it,” says Steve Broadbelt, co-owner of Ocean Frontiers. “This is a motivation for them and it’s working.” “I have completed the Green Shorts Challenge - as a matter of fact, I’ve completed the 55 dives twice...

1000 Scuba Divers Strong

1000 Scuba Divers Strong
1,000 Scuba Divers Strong, helped cull 10,000 invasive lionfish from our reefs since 2011. The names of those who helped are preserved in art to mark this environmental milestone during Earth Week. On behalf of Ocean Frontiers Ltd., Thank You!    The Art work was created by Diana Debaja and uses all of the names of those who have participated in our 1-tank or 3-tank Lionfish culls and tournaments. Spearers, Spotters and Containment Device holders are all recognised in this master peice.  If your name is here, you have done your part to help the environment and we hope you continue to help with this important work.    We recommend you download the original art file and zoom in to help find your own name - on average it is taking about 45 minutes to 'find yourself'.    Click Here for Download Link

Ocean Frontiers Rated one of the World’s Best Dive Operations

Ocean Frontiers Rated one of the World’s Best Dive Operations
Ocean Frontiers, dive operator at the Compass Point Resort on Grand Cayman’s remote East End, was rated one of the world’s Best Dive Operations, and tops in Cayman, by Scuba Diving readers in the 2014 Top 100 Gold List Awards. The Cayman Islands were rated No. 1 for Best Overall Destination in the Caribbean and Atlantic. The magazine polls its readers every year and asks thousands of subscribers to rate their dive experiences in a variety of categories. “We’re excited and honored by this recognition because it comes from experienced divers who know first-hand the excellent diving we offer,” says co-owner Steve Broadbelt. “They are telling us that we do a good job – this makes me very proud of our dive staff because they work very hard.” Broadbelt shared the good news during a staff meeting in early January, and it added extra cheer to the morning dive boats.
