What to See While Diving in Little Cayman
Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park
With its year-round warm waters and abundant marine life, Bloody Bay Wall is one of the most gorgeous drop-offs in the Caribbean. No matter how many times you’ve dived this spot, Bloody Bay Wall will always provide a memorable experience. The vertical drop-off is teeming with colorful reef fish including a variety of angelfish, parrotfish, anthias, and surgeonfish. Within the nooks and crannies of the wall, especially around Three Fathom Wall, find moray eels, lobsters and crabs as well as squirrelfish and blennies. You are also likely to encounter large Nassau grouper, which like to roam the walls around Marilyn’s Cut. Looking out into the blue, you might spot Caribbean reef sharks, sea turtles, and the occasional blacktip reef shark.
Named for the Blacktip sharks, but you are likely to see Caribbean reef sharks and eagle rays. A manta ray has also been seen cruising the blue at this site. Look into the deep crevices and come face to face with big-eyed squirrelfish, lobsters and a variety of blennies and gobies. Huge barrel sponges dwarf divers as they glide by. In the sand, look out for the tiny garden eels that retreat into their sand burrows as you approach.
If you’re more interested in a shallow site, The Meadows is extremely popular due to the array of coral and marine life. Keep a lookout for southern stingrays, conch, garden eels, razorfish, and a maze of beautifully encrusted coral heads. For those who prefer deep dives, the wall is a few kicks away through some short swim-throughs and out into the amphitheater, which is a large natural part of the wall. Keep an eye out for sharks as they love this area!
