Join Curt Bowen and the ADM Exploration Foundation to explore and film 12-mile bank, the fourth (sub merged) Cayman Island.

Seven miles off the west coast of Grand Cayman, this gem of a bank rises from thousands of feet deep to 90 feet from the surface. Kidney shaped, the edges drop into the abyss with the top of the bank filled with incredible coral heads rising to only 70 feet from the surface, and abounds with reef fish, pelagics like wahoo and tuna zipping by, sharks, turtles and more, and all in the open ocean.  What more we tell you, it is virtually unexplored.


200 feet for 150 minutes: Profiles will run to 200 feet for up to 150 minutes off the edge of 12-mile bank. Explore and help name new dive sites: With exceptional visibility up to 150+ feet and never before explored reefs and walls, our team will be the first to venture deep along this lost island. Our goals are to document what we discover with HD video and still photography.


Diving from Divetech’s Atitude dive boat. The boat will depart daily at 8:00am from Lighthouse Point Dive Resort, heading out to the bank, returning around 2:00pm.  Lunch will be served onboard on the trip back home.

Afternoons are open for great shore diving off Divetech’s reefs at Lighthouse Point Dive Resort. The deep wall, mini wall and Guardian of the Reef await you.
