Wall Dives

There are so many incredible wall dives available in Cayman Brac that it is difficult to choose one. Below are just three favorites to read a bit more about, but there is nothing to beat first-hand experience. We recommend that you try them. Excursions to the popular Bloody Bay Wall in Little Cayman, named as one of the best wall dives on the planet, can also be booked through the Brac Scuba Shack.

Anchor Wall

Chosen by co-owner, Martin Van Der Touw, as his personal favorite dive, Anchor Wall is appropriately named after the huge anchor that was accidentally embedded in the reef and which has remained there ever since. This spectacular dive site offers a multitude of vibrant sea life and corals to explore. Approximately 90 feet beneath the surface there is a swim-through on the inside of the wall that goes beneath the anchor. It's a highly recommended dive on the south side of Cayman Brac.

Wilderness Wall

This magical site, also found on the South Side, is co-owner of the Brac Shack, Liesel Van Der Touw's, all time favorite dive site. With a dramatic drop-off, this wall offers divers an abundance of captivating sea life, with a variety of vibrant and colorful sponges and corals that will enchant even the most seasoned diver. Wilderness Wall is home to an incredible variety of fish from snappers, groupers, angelfish and jacks, not to mention the majestic stingrays and personable turtles that may well swim up to your mask to see their reflection. This is another enchanting wall dive that is highly recommended.

Wreck Dives

Notably the most famous wreck dive in Cayman Brac is on the Russian frigate, re-named 'Captain Keith Tibbetts' as a tribute to a local politician, and which attracts dive enthusiasts from around the world. Intentionally sunk on the north east side of the island in 1996, this impressive 300+ foot vessel is ideally situated for both snorkelers and divers alike. Its highest point sits in approximately 30 feet of water and the deepest point is nearly 90 feet below the surface. The wreck has become home to countless species of sea life, which are ever increasing over time as this once active Russian frigate settles into its final resting place. Decorated with an array of sponges and corals, divers will encountering a menagerie of marine life from scorpion fish and moray eels, to a wealth of life found in the sand surrounding the wreck.

High visibility and low currents make this an ideal dive for both novice and advanced divers to enjoy.

East Chute

East Chute is another of Martin Van Der Touw’s favorite dives. Enthusiastic member of the Brac Scuba Shack 'family', J.P. Colin, loves this site as well and with good reason. This unique dive site offers the best of both worlds with a small wreck, the 'Cayman Mariner' , and a magnificent wall bejeweled with a variety of colourful sponges.
