Bloody Bay Wall

Bloody Bay Wall is without doubt the top diving attraction of Little Cayman, Cayman Islands.

Devil's Grotto

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.5, 4 votes

Just offshore George Town you will find one of the most popular shore dives on Grand Cayman. Devil's Grotto offers many swimthroughs, several huge coral heads among a collection of rocky grottos. You will often be intrigued by bait balls, big-eyed tarpon and schools of silversides. Unfortunately, the coral is less healthy than elsewhere and it is one of the places where the influence of diving tourism is well seen....

Eden Rock

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.7, 7 votes

Eden Rock is a shallow shore dive which features huge coral heads and towering pinnacles complete with some chimneys and many swimthroughs. It is extra appealing to snorkellers as you can feed the surrounding clouds of sergeant majors and yellowtails. You can reach it by setting up your dive equipment and enter the water through some staircases cut into the iron shore. Storms and tourism have taken its toll on the coral, but it remains nice diving nevertheless....

Rated 3.5, 11 votes

A relatively young wreck dive is the famous MV. Captain Keith Tibbetts, a huge 330 foot long Russian Brigadier Type II Class frigate that was scuttled on the north shore of Cayman Brac in September 1996. The wreck is known by the name Russian Destroyer #356 and was built in 1984 in Nadhodka, U.S.S.R. She was built for the Cuban navy but the ship hasn't participated in any great battles as long as she was in service. When she was sold to the Cayman Islands, she was renamed Captain Keith Tibbe...

Stingray City

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.4, 10 votes

Stingray City is Cayman Island's most stunning feature. It is an area suitable for snorkellers and divers where you will literally find hundreds of southern stingrays swimming and hovering across the white sand. During the past decades they have been lured by the leftovers of local fishermen. They cleaned their catch of the day and threw the rest overboard. Today many divers interact with the rays and hand feed them with parts of squid. Once a ray smells that food that is brought into the wa...

Mixing Bowl, Three Fathom Wall

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.0, 2 votes

Marylin's Cut, Hole in the Wall

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.8, 4 votes

Marilyn's Cut or Hole in the Wall is a generally sloping reef until you reach the wall at 25 feet deep. A bit to the right you will find a lot of loose coral which looks like it has been cut off from the reef creating a hole in the wall. Marine life and several kinds of sponges are as its neighbouring dives, Three Fathom Wall to the east and Donna's Delight in the west, in one word fantastic. Among its vibrant marine life are two large resident Nassau groupers which have been named Ben a...

Oro Verde

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.1, 10 votes

The Oro Verde was a 184 ft long steel liberty ship that was scuttled off the west coast of Grand Cayman on May 31, 1980. Stories tell that the ship was operating as a Jamaican drug smuggling boat in its last years. She was removed from all sharp objects, doors and hatches were opened and then she was finally ready to be sunk at the ocean floor. She lays there relatively intact at her starboard side in some of the whitest sand you have ever seen. You can see patches of corals and sponges while gr...
