A lot of variety on this site both coral and fish. A large a friendly grouper will assist you in your dive. A very enjoyable dive site.

This was the first place I learned to dive and it is still as beautiful today as it was 26 years ago.

We spent a morning dive at Charlie's Reef. The coral heads were beautiful with an abundance of sea life. The dive is great for photographers as it is so diversified!

Shallow, lots to see great coral and sealife. This is diving at its best in the Cayman's. As good as Bloody Wall.

A very enjoyable dive site in the Cayman Islands! There was quite a bit of marine life and a beautiful reef with cool swim-thrus. I recommend diving this site with Reef Divers.

The octopus and crabs were out in big numbers. There was a new moon so it was extra awesome. We saw lots of shrimp eyes in the coral heads.

As an UW photographer I found the sealife varied & plentiful on this reef w/ unusual combinations & colors of coral, seafans & sponges which all seemed to be competing for the same space. It's a shallow dive without much current so it would be fun for novices as well as more experienced divers, which is true of all the... More
