CAYMAN BRAC

ADVENTURE RUNS DEEP

 

The activity beneath the surface of Cayman Brac's teeming waters is what attracts both seasoned and novice divers alike. The marine life that occupies the island's miles of shallow reefs pay little attention to those who dive or snorkel among them, allowing you the rare opportunity to get an up-close look at the beautiful denizens of the deep that have made Cayman Brac famous the world over.

The quiet, laidback atmosphere of the island belie the activity found under that water’s surface. Cayman Brac is host to 1800 residents, 1 nature reserve and more than 65 dive sites.

Visitors have a wide range of activities to fill the day. One of the most popular includes diving. Boasting the only divable Russian warship in the Western Hemisphere the MV Capt. Keith Tibbetts was intentionally sunk in 1996 as an artificial reef. The Brac has 65 sites that are accessible by shore including Charlie’s Reef on the north side of the island. This site is named after a six-foot green moray and is known for the friendly schools of Spanish grunts which allow you to get close enough for a dental exam!

One of the best ways to remember the beauty of the Cayman waters includes photography. The sea life is very photogenic with fish providing ample opportunities to impress your friends at home with your talent.
