Dove with Living the Dream on the North Wall. One of the best dives in Cayman. Sponges, coral and sea life spectacular!

This North Wall dive site called Ghost Mountain was the most amazing scuba dive in Grand Cayman. Top of pinnacle is 50' with sheer base to 240' before it then drops to the abyss of 4,000 feet deep. Eagle ray cruised by as a turtle was munching a snack from a sponge. This reef is one of the healthiest I have seen and the marine life is amazing like it was 30 years ago..

I just had the unbelievable good fortune to be able to dive the North Wall for five days in a row in almost pristine conditions with no swells, no current, 125+ ft visibility, 7 mph winds, and exceptional marine life, all of which is uncommon for late October. The entire trip was further enhanced by the outstanding guidance of the Master crew at Divetech and the wonderful accommodations at Cobalt Coast Resort.

With unfiltered sun light streaming through seemingly even at depths of 120 feet, the entire coral seascape was lit up and the Wall was alive with life including sharks, Spotted and Green Morays, Eagle Rays, Turtles, large Angels and Groupers lobster, Spotted Drum and even schools of mature Trigger fish. The water temp from 50 to 110 feet was a balmy 86 degrees and that coupled with the incredible visibility meant for full 55 minute dives, and the folks with NiTrox stayed down even longer. All in all it was one the most enthralling dive safaris I have enjoyed in many years anywhere.

Ghost Mountain, Hammerhead Hill, the Roundabout and Princess Penny's Peak were absolutely magical at 100 ft and even the mini walls on our second and third dives were alive, healthy and teaming. The Divetech crew managed to pick the best spots every day out of the 365 dive sites to choose from in the Caymans, and while my policy is to sample a dive location and resort only once, I will definitely be going back to the North Wall and the "Cobalt Coast" again very soon!!

One of the most unspoiled sides of the island to dive. Only negative is, it is usually the winward side of the island and the seas can be a little rough. Most of the time it is calm. Access is out of the marina instead of off seven-mile beach. If you go dive with DNS Divers, Dusty and Lisa will take great care of you.

Dove a couple of sites off North Wall with Deep Blue Divers. Really awesome stuff. Grand Cayman is now my favorite diving destination.
