Heli-Diving the Sister Islands (Little Cayman & Cayman Brac)
Is there a better way to spend a day than a magnificent flight, sight-seeing and diving Cayman’s Sister Islands? Explore these remote beauties with a stunning 50 minute private helicopter trip to the virtually uninhabited Sister Islands – Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Choose a half day (two tanks, one island) or a full day (three tanks, both islands) and we will take you on a magnificent flight then drop in for some amazing dives. This adventure offers some of the most unspoiled and dramatic diving in the world.
Highlights of the day include:
- Diving Bloody Bay Wall, Little Cayman, which is considered one of the most amazing vertical drop offs in the Caribbean. Sport Diver’s Geri Murphy wrote an article on this dive site saying, “This remarkable formation begins at a shallow depth of 22 to 30 feet, and falls away to the abyssal depth of 1,000 feet. This wall is so vertical that you feel like a skydiver hanging in space. The visibility is so clear that you can see the wall 200 feet to the left, to right and directly below. It is the most amazing undersea panorama that you can imagine. You feel so small in the vastness of this towering cliff face.”
- Visiting the Booby Pond Nature Reserve, Little Cayman, home to 20,000 or 1/3 of the world’s remaining red-footed booby birds, 200+ breeding pairs of magnificent frigate birds and more than 200 other species of resident and migratory birds. This nature reserve makes you feel like you are sitting amidst a National Geographic documentary.
- Diving the wreck of the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts, Cayman Brac, one of the few Soviet Union wrecks in the western hemisphere. This 330 foot long Russian frigate was built in 1984 for the Cuban army.
