Quick Hug

Alec at 10 years old, had petted the sea turtles in the Turtle Farm in Grand Cayman, so when he reached out to give this one a quick hug we had to remind him that divers never disturb sea life, but were still glad we caught the photo. Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands has many turtles in its waters, so you are guaranteed to see at least one on every scuba dive.


Reef Fish

Cayman Brac where the fish are not shy, and follow divers on many occasions. Water is usually without waves to make snorkelling enjoyable. So even if you are just beginning to venture into the sea, you will be comforted by the clear calm, and warm water. Water temperature is 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the Winter.

"Lobster Couple"

Caribbean Lobsters

Caribbean lobsters do not have pincher legs, and are very often seen in the open. This pair of lobsters, found in Cayman Brac, have been very territorial and we have found them over and over again in their crevice home.

Cayman Brac also has an interesting Sanddollar Bed accessible from shore, Eagle Rays and the sunken Russian Frigate Warship are all waiting to be explored as well in Cayman Brac.


Violet Sea Anemone

Safehaven for Small Fish

Snorkelling has become a favorite activity for many people in Cayman Brac, due to reef protected areas that provide calm water. Full of colourful fish, and many varieties of coral, the waters of Cayman Brac provide many hours of exploration for snorkelers of all ages. Small fish hide in sea anemone such as this one.


Queen Angel Fish

Beautiful and Shy

On a snorkelling or diving adventure seeing the beautiful Queen Angel fish is thrilling. We have observed as many as four in one place, in only 40 feet of water.

There are 47 charted, buoy marked sites for boat and shore accessible diving, and 56 additional dive sites available by boat in Little Cayman. It is easy to never have seen them all no matter how often you dive.

Abundant coral reefs and sea life awakens wonder in the observer. The coral reef reaches within 10 feet of the surface in many places and is only a short swim from shore.


Swim With A Turtle

Hawkbill Sea Turtle

Yes, this is Irene with one of the docile sea turtles which simply keep an eye on you and keep on swimming. Although rare to see when snorkelling, it does happen. Seeing at least one turtle on a dive though is a sure thing.


Gray Angel Fish


The Gray Angel Fish travels in pairs and are as large as a dinner platter. Curious they will venture close to scuba divers and sometimes follow them during the dive. You will see them in all sizes on the colourful reefs.
