The Caribbean Sea is an American mediterranean sea of the Atlantic Ocean that is mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and appears in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist update.

The entire area of the Caribbean Sea, the numerous islands of the West Indies, and adjacent coasts, are collectively known as the Caribbean.


3D Universe

The sea is first mentioned at the start of GTA Vice City in a news broadcast. The broadcast mentions that Hurricane Hermione has already devestated several Caribbean islands and is crossing the Caribbean Sea, heading towards Vice City. This causes the bridges to be closed for the early portion of the game.

HD Universe

The sea is shown as a large body of water that surrounds the island of Cayo Perico. The sea is explorable, similar to Pacific Ocean, though in a limited area; if the player travels too far out of the map's limits, the player will be teleported back to Cayo Perico. It can only be explored during Heist Prep: Gather Intel and The Cayo Perico Heist. While exploring the bottom of the sea, the player may come across a number of places of interest, such as wrecks and dead bodies.

Places of Interest



  • In the very northwest area of the Cayo Perico map, the HUD displays the location name as being "Pacific Ocean" or "San Andreas" instead of Caribbean Sea. This is most likely due to the fact that the game is scripted to display the Pacific Ocean or San Andreas name if the player is too far from the map.
