Cayman Islands Diving Trip

This year, we are going to an all-inclusive resort on Little Cayman, one of the most pristine and least-visited of the Cayman Islands. We’re planning a 7-night stay over Halloween, so bring a costume! Little Cayman is legendary for its wall diving and water clarity. Our resort offers many options for daily diving: You can do a two-tank morning dive, a one-tank afternoon dive, AND a one-tank night dive! Or, if you don’t feel up to diving, you can try fishing, snorkeling, rock climbing, kayaking, or one of the many other activities available at the resort.

Package includes: 7-night hotel stay in pool view rooms, hotel tax, airport transfers, all meals, two drinks nightly, 17 boat dives, free use of dive computer, and a welcome rum punch and Manager’s Cocktail Reception.

  • Chevron down 10 Reasons to Dive Little Cayman - (from Sport Diver Magazine)

    We’ve got 10 reasons you should plan your next dive vacation in Little Cayman, Cayman Islands. From some of the most beautiful walls in the Caribbean to Nassau grouper — both of which will remind you why you fell in love with the ocean and diving in the first place — Little Cayman is a gem waiting to be discovered.

    Few drop-offs are equal to Little Cayman’s 90-degree north-shore slope. Inside Bloody Bay Marine Park, at sites such as Marilyn’s Cut and Donna’s Delight, reef sharks, eagle rays and hawksbill turtles are all regulars.

    Nassau grouper here are so friendly that they follow divers like puppies. Several dive guides have logged countless hours with them, so stay close to see truly incredible behavior.

    3 | DIVE TALK
    Casinos, nightclubs, movie theaters — these are three things you won’t find here. What you will find is fellow divers. The island is one of the best places to talk diving because nearly everybody came for the same reason.

    There’s a damselfish at Marilyn’s Cut that’s so well-known for aggressive behavior that the dive crew named it Sid Vicious — which speaks to how attentive this lighthearted, tightly knit bunch is to its reef residents.

    Where development has yet to take hold, nature still reigns. The island has its own endemic species of iguana called the Little Cayman rock iguana. The island is also home to the Western Hemisphere’s largest breeding colony of red-footed boobies.

    This island packs the same visibility that made Grand Cayman famous: 100 feet or more. Conditions like that make it easier to swim away from the wall for a wicked wide-angle perspective.

    You need only borrow a kayak to reach Owen Island, off Little Cayman’s southwest side. The beach’s white powder gives as easily as soft serve. Plus, it’s along the cruising route of stingrays. Unlike Grand Cayman’s star attraction, here you can have the show all to yourself.

    8 | GO SLOW
    Macro divers can spy tons of sea slugs, flapping dingbats and at least one yellowhead jawfish with a mouth full of babies.

    It’s getting harder and harder to escape light pollution, but on this outpost island, the night sky lights up. Resorts feature good Wi-Fi, so use an app like Star Chart to check out the stars.

    Drop by the Little Cayman Research Center one afternoon to learn how to keep coral alive and regrow cuttings, and how the area weathers storms.
