About diving in Cayman Brac

by Scubacrowd

Cayman Brac is a sister island to Grand Cayman and Little Cayman. With its population of only 1800 people the island is less touristic than its big brother Grand Cayman. Perhaps because of this fact, the island also offers a great abundance of wildlife. Wild green parrots and many other exotic species inhabit the island, making it the perfect place for nature fans.

But Cayman Brac is as well a paradise for scuba diving lovers. The island offers 50 different diving sites, with dives for every taste. Wonderful reef dives, several cave dives and spectacular wreck dives can be found all around Cayman Brac. Dive sites located north of the island tend to differ from those in the south, were weather conditions can be rougher due to less shelter. 


On the North Side, great wall dives lined by huge coral heads and burgeoning with marine life can be found. On the South Side instead, dramatic swim-throughs with deep drop-offs and large schools of fish, make this place an amazing diving adventure. An especially interesting wreck dive is the Russian warship Capt Keith Tibbetts Wreck. The soviet ship was bought by the Cayman Islands and sunk as an artificial reef. The shallow wreck dive features a great abundance of corals and marine life. 

Babylon is a wall dive, named after the hanging gardens of Babylon. The wall goes down up to 40 meters, rife with healthy corals and an abundance of marine life.
