Escape To Little Cayman

Travel BMorin COMMENTS 17 Aug, 2020

Join American Divers as we dive the crystal blue waters of Little Cayman

October 16th - 23rd, 2021

 Little Cayman Beach Resort

 

Little Cayman Diving

In general, at 7:45 AM we begin briefings for our morning 2-tank boat dives and at 1:45 PM for the afternoon 1-tank boat dives. Morning boat dive excursions are offered to explore Cayman Brac’s MV Captain Keith Tibbetts wreck and other great sites – weather permitting. These are included at no extra charge. After the dives we go ashore at Cayman Brac Beach Resort for lunch. Our meal package includes lunches enjoy their sister resort’s cuisine at no extra charge. 

Night boat dives are also available 2 nights per week based on weather conditions and interest at an additional charge.

Dive with Cayman’s signature turtles along with more than 500 specifies of fish, including the protected goliath grouper. The Cayman Islands were recently rated the best destination for wall diving in Scuba Diving Magazine; they're home to Bloody Bay Wall, one of the most magnificent underwater sites in the world. 

Bloody Bay Wall

The Cayman Islands have strict Marine Conservation Laws, and many of the 60 dive sites are protected within Marine Park Zones. As a result, Little Cayman’s reefs are incredibly healthy and sustain an abundance of marine life. The most famous dive attraction here is the legendary Bloody Bay Wall, where divers swim through the coral canyons and sand chutes to the blue waters of the outer reef – before suddenly PLUNGING to 6000ft . The walls themselves are gorgeous, as they’re covered in bright sponges, corals, and sea fans.

At 80°F , the diving is warm and comfortable, and the great visibility makes for excellent underwater photography; the Little Cayman waters are perhaps some of the most photographed in the Caribbean.

Though world famous for walls that plunge to almost incomprehensible depths, Little Cayman diving also offers spectacular shallow reefs that host an amazingly abundant and varied collection of marine life.

A true “hideaway” from the everyday, complete with shimmering white sand beaches and swaying palm trees, this idyllic laid-back island paradise has become a mecca for divers everywhere thanks to the copious amount of marine life, brightly hued sponges and spectacular coral that abounds in its clear, bathtub-like turquoise waters.

MARINE LIFE

Grouper

 

Being off the beaten track has its advantages. Thanks to only minimal dive traffic, the underwater citizens of Little Cayman barely notice your presence, making this dive vacation destination the perfect spot for underwater photography. Coral, fish, barracudas and grouper are plentiful. Turtles, jacks and parrotfish abound. And, in the evening, octopus roam the reefs and squid dart about, lashing their vibrant colors at the enthralled divers who have joined them.

Valet Diving

Dive the depths of the sea with the height of convenience with our one-of-a-kind “valet diving” service. All that you’ll carry are memories, as our experienced diving staff oversees the lifting, lugging, & loading of all of your diving gear. Immerse yourself in the thrill of the dive as our team takes care of the work & worries. With this exclusive diving service, all you have to do is arrive & dive.

For many of you, your diving gear is precious & personal. That’s why all divers receive a special mesh bag upon check-in at the dive shop to personally pack up their gear. On the day of your dive, simply leave that bag outside of your room & our dive team will take your bag to the boat for you to set up for the first time. Once your gear is organized as you like, leave its care & cleaning to our expert staff for diving without distraction.

Little Cayman Dining - All Meals Included

Bird of Paradise

Staffed by an international team of trained Chefs, Bird of Paradise appeals to the most discerning taste buds and serves a wide variety of gourmet international and Caribbean-inspired cuisine. Choose to dine in our air-conditioned dining room, screened lanai, or al fresco on the patio with our resident iguanas! Our Chef will be happy to accommodate those with special dietary or vegetarian needs.

Dining Room

Dining hours are tailored to dive schedules, including extended hours to accommodate night dives.

Beach Nuts Bar

Beach Nuts is centrally located at the resort and adjacent to the pool and overlooking the Caribbean Sea beyond. This is the hub of island activity and you will find something for everyone.  Our menu includes a vast selection of local and imported beer, fine wine, tropical cocktails, premium spirits, and Cuban cigars. Weekly events include a Manager’s Rum Punch Reception, karaoke, trivia, and other theme nights. Beach Nuts Bar also features a pub-inspired menu of lighter fare.

Beach Nuts Bar

 For the artistically-inclined, collect a piece of driftwood from the beach, and use our selection of paints to add to our ever-growing collection of Bar Art. Each year, guests attempt to one-up one another with increasingly complex pieces of art, and our bar and resort grounds proudly feature them.

 The Island

Little Cayman is located only 80 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, yet it feels worlds away. Nowhere in the Cayman Islands can you find a better dive destination that’s also a romantic getaway.

The island’s 150 residents (when everyone’s home) happily welcome you to their serene and safe island. Little Cayman Beach Resort’s Beach Nuts Bar is the island hot spot, especially on karaoke night. If you’re more into peace and quiet, then your idea of island Zen might be enjoying a drink with someone special in a secluded niche on the property or lying in hammock on the beach to count stars in the clear night sky.

Little Cayman Beach Resort

You can leave your hurry behind, because you’ll be on Little Cayman Island time. In addition to world-class diving, you can rent a kayak and visit nearby Owen’s Island for some snorkeling; tour the Central Caribbean Marine Institute and learn how they’re studying and saving reefs; grab a bike and go exploring; or just read a book in the shade of the palm trees that surround our pool and beach.
