Dive Little Cayman: December 2018
December 1 - December 8
About Little Cayman Beach Resort
Join group leader Shaun Maguire on our trip to Little Cayman December 1st -8th, 2018. From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced its reefs has stated that Little Cayman is one of the world’s premier dive destinations – with pristine reefs, excellent visibility and incredible diving. The 80° F water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater photographs are taken in the Cayman Islands than in all other Caribbean destinations. The Caymans’ trademark turtles are a common sight and eagle rays, angelfish, reef sharks and grouper count among the 500 species of fish that have been documented here.
The pool view rooms feature many amenities such as:
- Two doubles or one king size bed
- Individually controlled air conditioning and ceiling fan
- Flat screen television, DVD players and alarm clock
- Coffee-maker complete with Wolfgang Puck brand coffee
- Beverage center
- Private bathroom with shower
- Hairdryer and deluxe bath amenity package

Staffed by an international team of trained Chefs, Bird of Paradise appeals to the most discerning taste buds and serves a wide variety of gourmet international and Caribbean-inspired cuisine. Choose to dine in their air-conditioned dining room, screened lanai, or al fresco on the patio with their resident iguanas! Dining hours are tailored to dive schedules, including extended hours to accommodate night dives. They also have Beach Nuts, the hub of island activity and you will find something for everyone. Their menu includes a vast selection of local and imported beer, fine wine, tropical cocktails, premium spirits, and Cuban cigars. Weekly events include a Manager’s Rum Punch Reception, karaoke, trivia, and other theme nights. Beach Nuts Bar also features a pub-inspired menu of lighter fare. For the artistically-inclined, collect a piece of driftwood from the beach, and use their selection of paints to add to our ever-growing collection of Bar Art. Each year, guests attempt to one-up one another with increasingly complex pieces of art, and their bar and resort grounds proudly feature them.

#2 Marine Life
#2 Overall Rating of the Diving
The Cayman Islands have strict Marine Conservation Laws and many of our 57 dive sites are within protected Marine Park Zones, including the legendary Bloody Bay Wall – Little Cayman’s most famous dive attraction. Coral canyons and sand chutes lead you through the pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6000ft (1800m). These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. Bloody Bay Wall, one of the most pristine underwater sites in the world, is part of a unique ocean reef system surrounding Little Cayman. Rated as the best diving in the Caribbean by National Geographic photographer David Doubilet and underwater cinematographer Stan Waterman, Bloody Bay Wall’s natural beauty has been protected for future generations with its designation as a Marine Park. With over 50 dive sites, there is a wealth of marine life, shallow reefs and utterly astounding walls. Come and discover why our reef has been called the holy grail of the scuba world.
If you are looking to explore the island, hit the trails to experience the unique wildlife that calls Little Cayman home, or take a ride to see the whole of the island. On the water they offer paddle boarding or kayaking in the pristine waters around the island – a great way to explore the island and its surrounds. If you are looking for a game of tennis, they have fabulous new hard courts available for a game at your leisure.
