Diving Sites for Absolute Divers
Stingray City

Years ago before banking and tourism was big in Grand Cayman the main industry was fishing. The fishermen would work the seas all day and return to the protection of the of the reef in the north sound to clean their catch. After years of throwing the entrails overboard the Stingrays began gathering in the area on the shallow sand bars. The stingrays would feast on the free meal. Soon the stingrays began to associate the sound of a fishing boats with food. In the late 1970s, divers starting feeding squid to the stingrays, which is one of their favorite dishes.

Bloody Bay Wall is considered one of the world's most spectacular dive destinations. This unique geological formation features a sheer drop-off that plunges thousands of feet.

Dive 'N Stuff
Our first dive is usually a guided Wall dive. The walls here in Cayman generally start at around 45 feet in depth and can go down to about 3000 feet. Our maximum profile is 100 feet so you can choose you own comfort zone and extent your bottom time accordingly. After a surface interval of usually an hour, our second dive is typically a shallow reef or wreck dive, and you can choose if you want to be guided or not. Each dive site we visit is determined with safety being our number one concern.

Your crew consists of technical divers/instructors, and there are a host of exciting dive sites to explore with you. Typical dives take place on the North wall and Northwest Point of the island, and South at the ship wreck of the Carrie Lee. The Sponge Belt, with sites such as Nancy's Chute, Dan's Donut, Funky Town and Elephant Ear abound at depths ranging from 200-330fsw/60-100msw The wall offers a host of exciting dives that have chutes, swim through's, holes, donuts and more.

Sponges nestled in the overhangs grow to enormous sizes and range in shades of pastels and translucent colors. Trimix divers are invited to visit this pristine world in the clear, warm Caribbean waters in Cayman.

Carrie Lee
The Carrie Lee wreck sits in 165-260fsw/50-80msw off the southern end of Grand Cayman. Commissioned (Grand Turk) as a freighter to carry goods between Cayman Brac and Grand Cayman, she made weekly runs of container loads between the islands carrying supplies. Heading for Cayman Brac from Grand Cayman in 1985, the Carrie Lee met with misfortune and capsized approximately 10 miles east of Grand Cayman.

With a full container load on her top deck and being void below, she lost stability, capsized and drifted back south of Grand Cayman. Tow attempts were made for 2 weeks to salvage and right her, but eventually she sunk in 100fsw/30msw. The Carrie Lee has twice slid down the sloping top of the wall, resting today right on the edge of the drop-off, with her bow tipping over the edge of the abyss.
