The Babylon pinnacles are deservedly recognised as one of the best dive sites in the world. They can be done as a shore dive but far easier and less stressful to jump off a boat. This site has some of the best collection of colourful sea fans and sponges anywhere and is comparible to Bloody Bay Wall on LC. It's... More

Best shore dive in Cayman if you are up for the swim. LOCK YOUR CAR!! We had an attempted break in while we were in the water. Even that can't take away the magic that is Babylon. Eagle Rays, Turtles, and some of the best vertical scenery in Cayman. Don't miss it. You will have to beg the boats to... More

At the very parking spot pictured above, our rental car was robbed, and over $500 stolen from our three wallets. Another dive family's car parked there at the same time was also vandalized. At least the diving was good, and we made some new dive friends that day. Police were nice but very slow. I doubt the thieves will ever... More

Awesome dive, first of our trip to the East end. Babylon has a cool spire you circle around starting about 100 feet down. The images of the wall, fans, spire and fish are very clear on my mind.

Babylon is a wonderful dive site for deep and shallow diving. Swimming around the pinnacle gives wonderful views of resplendent coral and ocean life. It never gets boring.

After some advice from an Ocean Frontiers employee, we decided to dive "Julie's Wall down to "Babylon". The parking spot for this site is directly across from Rosebud Dr. on Old Robin Rd. about a 1/4 mile west of the Queen's Monument. Previously, we started on Babylon and worked our way east from there. 1) The surf was gentle and... More

Great site and worth diving! Just be careful when shore diving as my friends and I were recently robbed. We left the car keys under a rock off to the side and someone found the keys, unlocked the car and stole our cash, cellphones, watches, and sunglasses.
