At INDIGO DIVERS we are all about the critters ! With 365 dive sites in the Cayman Islands there is something for every diver. From dramatic walls, wrecks, & shallow reefs, to sink holes & rubble patches favoured by tiny juveniles, Cayman has what you want! You can be assured that we will take you to the best sites available to us – we want to see some cool stuff too!

The WEST SIDE of Grand Cayman is known for its spectacular walls, swim-throughs, pinnacles, deep canyons & awe-inspiring arches. The shallower reefs are home to coral encrusted wrecks, sleepy turtles and moray eels. Rubble playgrounds host yellow head jaw fish tidying their burrows, as a peacock flounders glide along the sandy bottom.

The famous NORTH WALL is a sheer face that plunges to a jaw-dropping 6000 ft! Eagle rays cruise effortlessly, reef sharks prowl in the deep, & spiny lobsters watch from beneath the coral heads, & neck crabs cling to gorgonians. The shallow reefs are beautiful gardens, thick with sea fans & clusters of yellow tube sponges & scorpion fish perch invisibly on coral heads. Summer months bring idyllic conditions, but high winds & choppy seas during winter make the north wall naccessible.

Nor-westers blow in from time to time, which drives us to the sheltered SOUTH SOUND area of Grand Cayman. A maze of tunnels & swimthroughs will test even the most confident of navigators. The top of the mini-wall is alive with red lipped blennies, all darting in & out of the stag horn & elk horn coral formations. Juvenile yellow tail damsel fish seek shelter among the blade fire coral and schooling creole wrasse & electric blue chromis swarm overhead.

we go to great depths for you !

the kittiwake

The USS KITTIWAKE arrived in the Cayman Islands on Christmas Day 2010, & was sunk in spectacular style at the top of Sand Chute, on January 5th 2011. A former submarine rescue vessel, she served the US Navy for over 54 years, before she was decommissioned in 1994. Resting at 64 ft in the sand, she is 251 ft long, 44 ft beam, & with 5 decks, sits 47 ft tall.

 

stingray city

“The worlds best 12 ft dive!” Caymanian fishermen returned with the days catch, and once within the protected north sound they would drop anchor. While cleaning their fish, any leftovers would be thrown overboard. The stingrays quickly caught on to this daily ritual. In 1987, a curious dive master discovered just how friendly they were and that was the birth of Stingray City!

night dives

Do fish close their eyes when they sleep? See for yourself on a guided night dive!
Diving at night is an experience not to be missed. Whether it’s your first time venturing out in the dark, or you’re a night diving veteran, Grand Cayman’s calm clear water offers perfect conditions for exploring the night time underwater world. See the parrotfish napping in their mucus sleeping bags, blue tangs changing color while they rest, and search the crevises for the chromis that are so active during the day. For lovers of small critters, night is the best time to find an elusive nudibranch or to see cleaner shrimp battling to the death for territory.

Many of the ocean’s predators come out under the cover of darkness - barracuda, stingrays and moray eels can all be found stalking their pray on the reef, octopus get hungary and roam around, and lobsters get curious. Even the coral feeds at night, extending polyps out to catch passing food - you won’t recognise the reef that you have seen during the day.
