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 $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 the boat and on the island, and more. Visitors can browse through descriptions and colourful 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 specialities 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 colour will come out to the reader on the new site.
