Beautiful Dive Site

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

So this is a shallow lively reef. We were able to stay under almost an entire hours just playing with all of our new sea creature friends. We found a turtle, lobsters, crabs, a drum, a spotted drum, barrel sponges, fan coral, shrimp, spiders, puffer-fish, etc . . . .a very alive reef teeming with color.

The grouper follow you around like your pet puppies. A very easy and absolutely beautiful dive. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is because I had just returned from Bloody Bay off Little Cayman. Would definitely do this site again.

magnificent descent through a coral canyon to 110 ft and top of the renowned Cayman wall, drops 4000 ft into the blue. 100 ft viz is common here, lots of "pet" groupers (really, they like to be petted!), rays, lobster, and magnificent coral and sponges the size of wine barrels.
