My wife and snorkeled here from a dive boat. It was a great location. There were plenty of fish and we saw a hawksbill turtle hiding out under a coral head. We got some awesome pictures of him too.

We were able to dive the "Mixing Bowl" twice. There is a lot to see and the sting rays sleeping in the same were amazing. At one point we saw 3 sleeping in a row.

Great dive! We came at this dive from two different angles! I could've spent hours there. Such an amazing dive with schools of fish and huge lobster.

We dove here in March of 2016. The water was perfect - warm and calm. There is amazing marine life. Bring a camera!

Fun dive with lots to see. Get your camera ready as there will be lots of friendly fish coming around. Just one of the spectacular dives that LC has to offer. Go slow as there is also micro critters not to be missed. Occasional seahorse

Very enjoyable easy dive - lots of fish and good for photography. About a 30 minute boat ride from the resort.

One of my favorite dives on Little Cayman. A fantastic combination of wall and shallows dive with a wonderful variety of critters.
