Group Deposits Waived on
Pre-DEMA Rates

Clearly Cayman Dive Resorts is now waiving their normal deposits on groups of 10 or more booking 7-night dive vacations to any of their resorts for travel through January 14, 2023. This enables dive shops and clubs to book ahead and start selling spaces early before risking any financial commitments.

“We know the COVID-19 pandemic has been especially hard on local dive shops whose customers are still going to want to travel once the ‘all clear” is given. But with all the groups not able to travel in 2020 due to the Cayman Islands’ government shutting down international arrivals, 2021 and even 2022 prime dates are filling up fast,” according to Sue Belport, Sales Director for Clearly Cayman. “So waiving group deposits gives them a chance to plan ahead, get our lowest group rates of the year, and avoid disappointment that their dates and/or resort aren’t available.”

COVID-19 Update

All three resorts have been closed since mid-March when the government shut down international travel to the islands in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At present, plans call for the initial lifting of international travel restrictions on October 1, primarily for returning part-time residents and staff. The Cayman Islands Government announced their tentative plan to relax restrictions on inbound international vacationers on November 1, although details have not yet been finalized. Assuming that ll of this goes according to plan, Clearly Cayman Dive Resorts plan on reopening to guests on November 7.
