SAVE THE DATES...& ADVISE WHEN OPEN FOR BOOKING: ICONIC Little Cayman...GROUPERS GALORE...WALLS WALLS WALLS...Extraordinary Cayman Diving... and EXTRAORDINARY FUN...Dec 7-14, 2024

 

Then you are going to love LITTLE CAYMAN Dec 7-14, 2024... THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE CAYMANS for TONS OF GROUPERS and great wall diving, A DAY TRIP TO the world famous MV Captain Keith Tibbetts plus diving PERFECT FOR NOVICES and PROS alike... LITERALLY SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!!!!

 

How to Get to the Little Cayman

A direct flight from Miami to Grand Cayman takes only 70 minutes. From Grand Cayman, you can transfer to Little Cayman or route via Cayman Brac. There are also usually direct flights from Boston, Chicago, and New York to Grand Cayman.  The resort is located on a private beach on Little Cayman.

 

FRIENDLY GROUPER*

*Special thanks to Sierrah Rayne a kindred spirit and amazing resource for her insight and insider's guide to Cayman Brac

The friendly Nassau Groupers are the topic of conversation 9/10 times on any dive boat in LITTLE Cayman. Or, as your dive guide might call them, puppy dogs of the ocean. There may be 6-8 Nassau Groupers swimming along with you on any given dive. The divemasters in Little Cayman carry lionfish spears (licensed by the government). The groupers like to follow along and see if they can get a lionfish snack. The groupers will get close to you and hang out with you, but refrain from touching them. Every time you feel/ “pet” a grouper, you are disturbing a crucial piece of their mucus coat that acts as a bacterial barrier.

  • Insider Scoop: The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) has a research program that tags Nassau grouper to track spawning sites. These tags in the Nassau groupers may resemble a fishing line. It’s not a fishing line, don’t try to remove it. Its for science!

Stellar Walls

Wall diving in Little Cayman is very WORLD RENOWN unspoiled and uncrowded. You have colorful sponges, soft corals, dozens of fish, and turtles swimming by to one side plus occasionally a shark or two. To the other side, a vast unknown of the prettiest shades of blue. The walls of Little Cayman start anywhere between 45-70 feet. A lot of them have fun swim-throughs that shoot you out at the wall. On your way out, keep an eye out for the friendly reef sharks that like to call the Cayman Trench home!
