I have dived on many of the world's reefs but you need a strong nerve to attempt the wall. Great coral and sea life which can be seen from snorkel, sub or scuba. Just like stepping off the Empire State - makes The Abyss a reality show.

The west wall in Cayman is the best diving on the island. Some dive companies will try and divert you to other places because that is where they prefer to dive. The west wall is nice, great visibility and is always the best for fish and wild life. Some say the north wall is the best, but the sites are... More

We entered through Macabuca Restaurant and stayed along the Western Wall. It was by far the best snorkeling we did on the island. We saw the best variety of sea life during this snorkel. It would be an amazing dive. It's worth it, plus it's amazingly located. Get out of the water...grab a drink and some delicious food.

We actually didn't get to dive the Wall, but we did do the Submarine dive at night and it moves along the Wall. Very beautiful, and lots too see.

There is a ton of great dive locations on the western wall. Every one I've seen is worth checking out. The water is some of the calmest ever. Definitely would recommend diving the western side of Grand Cayman.

For seasoned divers, the Grand Caymans has a reputation as one of the finest dive locations in the western hemisphere. The western wall is the location to dive in the winter. With 350 designated sites and a limitation of only 1 boat per site at a time, the diving is not crowded and there are lots of goodies to see.... More

Diving is wonderful. West Wall has the calmest seas in the world! Sea Turtles, Moray Eels and lots of fish to see!

Lighthouse Reef with DiveTech is a fabulous shore dive, the coral is vibrant and colorful with lots of sea life! Sunset Divers at the Turtle Farm is another shore dive not to be missed.

Did 15 dives on the wall and all were great. Water temp was warm and the fish were many and varied. Good place for a diving trip.

This is the famous wall. I have to give it five stars because it is on bucket list for divers around the world. I've been over many times. Frankly the dives are short because they are 100 feet deep and it's a little hard to see in the dark. Nonetheless one must say they have "been over the wall."
