Little Cayman is the smallest of the three islands that form the Cayman Islands. Dive sites at Little Cayman consist of vertical walls, beautiful coral gardens and boulder formations. The best dive sites are located along Bloody Bay Wall which is a spectacular vertical wall with more than 15 different dive sites. The wall begins at a depth of 20ft (6m) and drops off to 1,000ft (304m). Along the wall, colorful sponges, gorgonian sea fans and other coral formations make a wonderful home for reef fish and critters.
Another area to explore is Jackson’s Bight at the northwest end of Little Cayman which also boasts several different dive sites. These dive sites offer a slightly different seascape with chutes, tunnels and crevices to explore.
While the island is small, dive sites are plentiful around Little Cayman. During November to April, water temperature ranges between 78-82°F (25-28°C) and visibility is great at 60-100ft (18-30m).
Most of the dive sites are close to the island and easy to dive. As the island is at sea level and fringed with beaches, many dives start right from the shore.
