Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Bight in a single dive

Most dives here start with a swim through onto the wall. The intersection between the Bay and Bight shows how the two differ (Bay a shear wall, Bight more fragmented). On top is a... read more

Most dives here start with a swim through onto the wall. The intersection between the Bay and Bight shows how the two differ (Bay a shear wall, Bight more fragmented). On top is a sandy area which has plenty of good things to see, and of course the coral is great too. I dived it twice in the two weeks... More

We did this dive twice during our 9 day stay. Different each time. Lots of interesting terrain to explore. I managed to find a little fellow, a Gaudy Clown Crab, crawling about and was really excited. Don't find those every day. One of the other divers found a juvi Jackknife. Simialar to a Spotted Drum but different??? It really is,... More

A perfect combo dive where Bloody Bay Wall meets Jackson Bight. The macro life just under the boat is incredible.

Mixing Bowl is in Jackson Bight area very near Bloody Bay Wall. Encounters there will be with several varieties of schooling fish. It is not a deep dive and if doing photography and a sunny day there will be plenty of ambient light.

One of the most enjoyable dives I did in Little Cayman. Very relaxed diving, with an amazing abundance of fish and critters. Lots of schooling fish, turtles and rays.

This is one of the best dives on the island. As its name suggests, it is a little bit of everything. Have dived here many times and each time, as I step off the boat, I wonder what I will see this time. There are tiny creatures and tons of fish and the possibility of anything from a shark to...

Here you will find the junction of Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Reef. Thus, you get the best of both wall diving and coral reef diving. You will see tons of fish and lots of other life.

At the junction of Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson Reef. The white sand bottom of Jackson meets the walls of Bloody Bay. Full schools of fish, large groupers coming to you to be petted. Wide sand chutes lead you out to the wall.
