Cayman Brac Diving
Caribbean for diving adventures. Most of the drop offs tend to be about 40 to 60 feet,
but one can find single coral heads extending to within 10 feet of the surface.
The most notable walls in Cayman Brac are located on the north and south sides of the
island. To the north, avid divers will find the Strawberry Sponge Wall, Cemetery Wall,
and Garden Eel Wall. These begin around 50 feet and are covered with brilliant tube
and rope sponges and deepwater gorgonians.
To the south, there is the Anchor Wall-named for the mysterious anchor wedged in its'
crevice. Divers can also experience the Rock Monster Chimney and Bluff Wall, which
offer numerous ravines and sponge communities for ones' diving pleasure. Also
accessible to divers is the Wilderness Wall, a massive 55-foot high and 44-foot wide
coral pinnacle that is often surrounded by Nassau grouper, stingrays, and turtles.
Several shallow reefs ranging from 10 to 20 feet high, like Bert's Brothers Boulders
and Snapper Reef, are made by spur and groove formations. Here snorkelers and divers
will see Sharptail eels, friendly Angelfish and perhaps, one of the frequent visits
from schooling squid.
The most popular dive site in Cayman Brac is the M.V. Capt. Keith Tibbetts, a Russian
destroyer that was intentionally sunk as a dive site in September 1996. At 45 feet
below the surface, the destroyer is 330 feet in length and is surrounded by a healthy
coral reef. Divers should expect to see schools of Horse-eye jacks and tons of garden
Overall, the diving experience in Cayman Brac can be as simple, or as elaborate as one
wishes to make it.
