Sunset House Teams up with Swatch for a Late Summer/Early Fall Dive Special

Swatch What’s Happening at Sunset House Special! Free watch, free day of diving, free tropical drink


Sunset House, Grand Cayman’s Hotel for divers, by divers and one of the best dive resorts in the Caribbean, is teaming up with Swatch, the company that introduced affordable Swiss watches 30 years ago, to offer the “Swatch What’s Happening at Sunset House Special!” a promotional dive package that includes a free dive watch, a free day of diving and a free tropical drink. For the late summer/early fall promotion Sunset House is partnering with the teams at Dan Orr Consulting and Kirk Freeport, the official Swatch distributor in the Cayman Islands. The special runs from July 26th through October 31, 2014, and people who book a 5-night package can choose their Scuba Libre dive watch at check-in. With names like Deep Turtle, Clownfish and a promotional tag line Mad about the Sea, the Swatch promotion is a great fit for Sunset House.

“It’s perfect for our clientele – it fits our line of customers,” says Sunset House General Manager Keith Sahm. “There are a lot of people who say ‘I’ve loved Swatch since I was a kid.”

“The Scuba Libre model has been extremely popular since its launch last year,” says Scott Harrington of Kirk Freeport, which carries the largest selection of duty free watch brands in the Caribbean.  “Two of things Grand Cayman is famous for are diving and buying watches, so it is great when we can tie the two together to broaden both our audiences.  We are very excited about the promotion!”

About 8 years ago we met Jaxx. She was one of the workers at Sunset House , and was our “babysitter” while my parents went for a dive that day. The following year that we came back to Cayman she had left, gone to Alaska for a change in weather. The year after that we saw her again and it was an absolute pleasure. The last few times we’ve been back she hasn’t been here, and it was really disappointing, but today as we arrived I had a funny feeling she would be here. Sure enough as we got ready to swim out to the mermaid statue in the ocean, there she was, with the biggest smile on her face. Loved seeing her, it totally made my day, & can’t wait to see her again next year and have her teach me how to dive finally 👏🌊☀ #caymanislands #jaxx #sunsethouse

Dive Legend helps Cayman spread the Word on Watersports Safety and Marine Conservation


Dan Orr stars in “Share Our Seas” Public Service Announcements to be televised in the Cayman Islands

This fall the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) will launch a campaign called “Share Our Seas” featuring a series of televised public service announcements aimed at raising awareness of diver safety and marine conservation among residents and visitors. The on-camera star of the PSAs is dive industry legend Dan Orr who until recently was the driving force behind the Divers Alert Network (DAN) for decades, until forming Dan Orr Consulting. Videotaped on location at Sunset House in early September, the recognized industry ambassador for diver safety will be reminding locals and visitors to the Cayman Islands about basic safety in the ocean. 

“The PSA’s are important because you have to continually remind divers about safety,” said Orr. “It’s importance to have a regular physical, especially after 35, or any time there is a health related change in your life.” 

In addition to staying physically fit for diving, Orr will be reminding divers to observe other safety measures such as having proper scuba certifications, refreshing their dive skills, getting a proper medical clearance, ensuring their dive gear is in proper condition and doing complete buddy checks.


“There’s no one even close that walks the walk that Dan does on diver safety,” said Sunset House General Manager Keith Sahm who has been Orr’s dive buddy and knows first-hand how safety conscious he is.  “Dan looked at me eye to eye, and we did a complete check list – he’s a true, true buddy.”
