Contributing a trip report on a mainstream dive destination like Little
Cayman Island to Undercurrents feels a bit like submitting a recipe for
tuna casserole to Gourmet Magazine. But lets face it  while most of us
love reading about that two berth live-aboard in Tierra Del Fuego staffed
by New Orleans-trained chefs and operated by one of the lesser Cousteau
offspring, we probably wont be getting there in this lifetime. For those
of us whose taste for the exotic is tempered by age, budget or inclination,

Getting There

We were a group of four friends, representing a collective total of seventy

wall, either across the reef or through one of the many easy and dramatic
swim-throughs or channels; emerge onto the wall at depths between 40 and
120 feet; spend half the dive slowly ascending the wall i
