Red Sail Sports offers an Unbeatable Dive Deal during Cayman’s “Legends and Lions” Celebration October 4 – 11

Taking advantage of off-season rates to offer travel deals, Cayman’s dive industry highlights things that make it a top dive destination: incredible diving, outstanding customer service and a conservation-minded community that honors dive legends 

A host of travel option are available for the “Legends and Lions,” celebration on Grand Cayman October 4 – 11, 2014, but discerning divers seeking an exceptional travel deal should take advantage of Red Sail Sports’ dive package with accommodations at the luxurious Westin Resort on Seven Mile Beach. It starts at an incredible US $975 per person (based on double occupancy) for a 7-night stay and it includes a daily 2-tank dive, plus the common elements being offered as part of the celebration.

The weeklong event brings together several existing scuba promotions during this slow time of year to take advantage of off-season rates. All “Legends and Lions” packages include; a daily 2-tank dive, a dive on the USS Kittiwake wreck, a Lionfish certification with a 1-tank Lionfish hunt dive, a street dance and tickets to the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame Induction Dinner, where guests can minge with the “legends” of diving. Cayman is host to the ISDHF and some of the biggest names in the dive industry will be honored: Alese and Mort Pechter, Bill Acker, Chuck Nicklin, Dan Orr and Neal Watson.

The “Lions” in the event name refers to Cayman’s continuing battle against invasive Lionfish, which threaten reefs, not only in the Cayman Islands, but also all across the Caribbean. Red Sail Sports and other participating operators plan all-out assault on the invasive Lionfish on Thursday, October 9 with a Lionfish culling certification followed by a 1-tank dive to remove the predators from local reefs. The day’s catch will be cooked up and enjoyed during a street party on the waterfront in George Town.

The Red Sail Sports and Westin Resort partnership gives dive travelers another reason to celebrate – enjoying the very best Cayman has to offer at bargain prices not available the rest of the year. The Westin Resort, with its elegant tropical atmosphere, is situated on the soft, white sands of Seven Mile Beach, ranked by US News Traveler as the #1 beach in the world. It features comfortable rooms, world-class restaurants, spa facilities and all the amenities needed to pamper guests. Red Sail Sports, known for excellent customer service and first-rate facilities, operates a watersports shop on the beach at the Westin. Guests enjoy convenient and easy boarding because Red Sail Sports’ customized, spacious dive boats pull up right up on the beach.

Red Sail Sports Operations Manager Rod McDowall:  “Lifestyle is a choice travelers make when booking their vacation, and our package gives them the opportunity to make the most of their time on the island. They can enjoy all the things that make Cayman special: warm clear water, incredible dive sites, great customer service, world-class accommodations and restaurants, and a stunning beach. When they are done diving for the day, guests may opt to enjoy the beach by relaxing seaside, in the pool or having fun with our watersports toys – it’s all here, and at fantastic rates they won’t get at any other time of the year.”

Red Sail Sports Grand Cayman Launches New Dive-Specific Website

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (Dec 16, 2014) Red Sail Sports, Grand Cayman’s leading resort watersports operator, is gearing up for 2015 with the launch of a new dive-focused website www.diveredsailcayman.com.  The website, a one-stop online shopping location for diving customers, offers quick and easy access to all Red Sail Sports dive information, showcasing the company’s new competitive dive rates and dive packages.  Red Sail Sports’ Summer Spectacular package includes 5 two-tanks for just US $465, a savings of 30% from last summer’s rates.

“Our goal is to inspire visitors to book some of the great dive specials and packages Red Sail Sports is offering in 2015,” said Operations Manager Rod McDowall. “Rates have been lowered considerably for volume diving and we hope the site will show Red Sail Sports as the best operator and option when visiting Grand Cayman.”

The dive website is also part of the company’s ongoing efforts to keep improving its stellar customer service. Red Sail Sports has been offering services on Grand Cayman for 27 years and it operates facilities at resorts along the island’s famous Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point and East End. Customers access all the information they need when planning their dive vacation, including a complete dive boat schedule and list of Red Sail Sports’ training courses, and easily book their adventures online.

The website is designed to answer questions divers might have; certification cards, water conditions, the best time of year to dive the Cayman Islands, dive refreshers, making reservations, diver ratios, what’s needed on the boat, medical facilities on boat and on the island, and more. Visitors can browse through descriptions and colorful photos of the dive sites and check out the maps. Dive instructors Vicki Jones and Chris Kirrage spent six months writing the content for the dive site and they will keep it updated with the latest from Red Sail Sports and the Cayman dive scene.

“Divers like to research and know a lot of information before they arrive; what they might see on the dive, which staff will take them diving, what the boats are like, what equipment they will use,” said Vicki Jones.  “We are very much involved in the diving ourselves here in Grand Cayman, so this allows us to write the content from what we feel is a diver/instructor’s point of view.”

As dive instructors Jones and Kirrage also want to make the process of signing up for PADI eLearning courses much simpler for their students. “Within 2 clicks they can be directed to the PADI sign up page for any course that we offer,” said Kirrage.

Red Sail Sports’ training program includes PADI specialties such as Wreck Diver, Nitrox Diver, Deep Diver, Search and Recovery and Scuba Tune Up. Customers can also sign up for Nitrox diving, with its own nitrox compressor, Red Sail Sports is making diving with nitrox more accessible for customers.

Also new in 2015, Red Sail Sports is making Go Pro action video cameras available for rent at all locations. Customers can rent them for a full day or half day with accessories to suit their activity and capture their Cayman vacation in high quality video. The company has an Action Camera Specialty Course in the works.

“The aim of the dive-specific website is to give visitors browsing online a little bit of a dive experience with our Red Sail Sports team,” said Rod McDowall. “It is such a fun time diving in Cayman – spectacular warm, clear water diving, and entertaining, friendly and professional staff making our guests comfortable on big, spacious and well-equipped boats.  We like to spoil our customers and hopefully a bit of that fun and color will come out to the reader on the new site.”
