Comments Little Cayman Beach Resort is a wonderful getaway: Beautiful Island, beach, resort is well maintained. Food is 4 star--varied, plentiful and even custom if you need it. Staff is great, especially the kitchen folks from Jamaica. Massage is first class. Bloody Bay Wall and surrounding reefs are among the healthiest in the Caribbean, the viz is nearly gin clear, very little if any current. The walls and "great blue" are impressive and cool to hover over. Great wide dive boats, good dive briefings, nitrox available. This is my second visit to LCBR and 4th to the island.

Hi Michael, Your report is right on. I first visited Little Cayman with my son in 2010, I remember a fair number of fish. My wife took me back to Little Cayman at the end of January for my birthday. Walls were beautiful, water was clear, but, where were all the fish? I was luckier than you and did see several Reef Sharks but most of the tropical fish were missing in action. I am spoiled, my wife and I have a house in SE FL and mostly dive Boynton Beach. There are a tremendous number of fish on the reef to the point I generally note, "the usual reef fish" in my log book. This means all kinds of Parrotfish, Filefish, Cowfish, Trunkfish, Angelfish, Butterflyfish, Triggerfish, Porcupine and Burrfish, Wrasses, Cornet and Trumpetfish. Then you can throw in all the Southern and Yellow Rays, Lobster, Green, Spotted and Golden Morays, and Loggerhead and Green Turtles. My favorite site in the Caymans is currently Grand Cayman, East end. There are are many more fish here. Ocean Frontiers at Compass Point is a fantastic operator, perhaps my all time favorite. Good diving, Craig

Craig--Thanks for your experience and recommendation for the East End. I've never taken the opportunity to check that out. Guess I'll put that on my bucket list for another Caribbean trip. But I'm so into Indonesia and the Philippines it's hard to work everything in!

In my opinion, I have never used a better dive operation than Ocean Frontiers. They are superb!
