CAYMAN AGGRESSOR 4 SPECIFICATIONS

The Cayman Aggressor IV runs Saturday to Saturday.  10 night charters are also available .

 

The crystal, clear, warm water of the Cayman Islands has made it one of the top scuba diving destinations in the world. Divers will explore the walls and ship wrecks of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac (weather permitting).

 

The Cayman Islands are a British Crown Colony which lies 480 miles south of Miami, nestled in the turquoise waters of the western Caribbean.

 

Getting There, Passport & Visa Documentation:

Most major airlines fly into Grand Cayman: American, British Air, Cayman Airways, Delta, US Airways and Spirit. There are many direct flights from the US and several connecting flights for the UK and Canada.

 

Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.

 

Arrival/Boarding/Departure:

The Cayman Aggressor IV operates out of Grand Cayman, BWI (GCM). Guests arriving on Saturday from 11:30 am – 6 pm are greeted at the airport by a Cayman tour guide who will be wearing an Aggressor Fleet hat and shirt and will have guests name on a sign. Cayman taxi regulations do not allow the Cayman company to transfer guests to the yacht. Airport transfers are not included in the cost of your charter. At the end of the charter, the Captain will assist with organizing transportation to the airport or hotel if you are extending your stay. If you are already in Grand Cayman, please make your own way to the Cayman Aggressor IV anytime after 3:00 p.m. Passengers can arrive up until the last flight Saturday evening.The yacht will depart the dock early Sunday morning.

 The Cayman Aggressor IV, docks at the George Town Tourist Dock, however, during the winter months, she occasionally docks off Ann Drive in North Sound Estates. In case you arrive at the airport and cannot locate a uniformed crewmember, please call the local contacts. Telephones are located throughout the airport. Don’t worry if the Cayman Aggressor IV is not docked in town because of rough seas or weather; there is always somewhere calm you can board the yacht.

During the week, weather permitting, the Cayman Aggressor IV will dive the best of all three islands which includes the Russian Destroyer in Cayman Brac, Bloody Bay Wall in Little Cayman, and Stingray City, Northwall, Southwall, Kittiwake and Doc Polson wrecks in Grand Cayman.  After a full week of diving, the Cayman Aggressor IV returns back to the downtown George Town Government dock Friday afternoon after lunch. Guests can walk around town until it's time for the sunset cocktail party Friday night at 6 pm. Check-out is Saturday morning at 8 am.

CAYMAN ISLAND DIVE SITES

CAYMAN ISLAND DIVE SITE INFORMATION

3 Fathom Wall (Mixing Bowl)

This is the crossroads of Bloody Bay Wall. Here, the “shear” wall, meets the “gentle slope”. This site offers more fish than any site in Little Cayman. Schools of Bermuda chub, 3-spotted goatfish, snappers and grouper of all sorts can be identified here. The rubble of the shallows is home to an array of creatures, including the timid yellowhead jawfish. If you are more adventurous, make a cut through the coral fingers and end up on the wall (there are several passages covered over by coral formations). Lobster are frequently seen on the wall area. Turtle, spotted eagle rays and an occasional reef shark or nurse shark can be spotted at any time.

 

Angelfish Reef

Coral fingers, and small coral heads make this sight truly enjoyable for night diving as well as a day dive.

 

Balboa (wreck)

Located in only 40ft. of water, this site is usually done as a night dive; however, it provides some magnificent colour and life during the day light hours. Channel clinging crab, lobster, squid, octopus, and much, much more call this wreck “home”.

 

Big Tunnels

Highlighted by three (3) swim-thru's ranging from 80ft-130ft. Tarpon are sometime found in and around this site.

 

Bonnie's Arch

70ft. Maximum, this site has a beautiful arch that provides wonderful photo/video opportunities. Seahorses are sometimes found here. Angelfish frequent this area. Channel clinging crab can be spotted under the edge of the outlying reef system.

 

Bullwinkle East

 The site gets it name from the large elkhorn coral that forms the top of this shallow reef.

 

Cumbers Caves

In this portion of the reef, a “sand avenue” separates the shallow wall from the deep wall. To get to the “deep blue”, simply locate one of several passages through the reef. . . you might ask upon seeing the “inside” of the reef, “is this what Bedrock looks like?”

 

David Nicholson (wreck)

This “front end loader” was name for the late Dave Nicholson who was a diving icon of the Cayman Islands. Lying just offshore of the Sunset House Hotel, one can sometimes find lobster and large grouper under the stern of the wreck. A great “photo op” is also available at the statue of the Mermaid (designed by Simon Morris).

 

Devils Grotto/Eden Rock

“One of the dives that made Grand Cayman so famous”, is how many describe this site. Located just off the shore outside of George Town, one can explore the passages of these two (2) dive sites. Maximum depth is 45ft.

 

Doc Poulson (wreck)

Sitting in an open sandy area, with coral reef nearby, the small cable laying vessel was sank for the purpose of a wreck site. Good growth on the wreck provides a home to many juvenile fish including the pygmy file fish. Look for bristle worms on the green tube sponge located on the vessels spotlight.

 

Eagle Ray Rock

Found outside of Smith Cove, Eagle Ray Rock is noted for the “L”-shaped passage on this large coral formation.

 

Eagle Ray Roundup

This site is a continuation of Jackson’s Wall/Reef and offers many of the same features. It is not unusual to see a spotted eagle ray “snooping” for mollusk in the sand.

 

Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman provides a wide variation of reef life and fish – everything from juveniles to spotted eagle ray and sometimes a shark.

 

Pending the side of the island you are diving, you will find dramatic walls starting from 50ft-70ft. The shallows will feature a “spur-and-groove” coral formation or sites that are more noted for their swim-thrus.

 

More noted for its small reef life, don’t be surprised to spot a turtle at any time find a southern stingray feeding nearby.

 

Great Wall

The name says it all. The CAIV is moored in 15ft. of water, and the wall begins at 18ft. – and it is a shear drop. This portion of Bloody Bay Wall is full of pristine vegetation growing off the wall – gorgonians, soft and hard corals and all types of rope sponges. Turtles are often seen munching on a sponge or just swimming by at 40ft. Look for juvenile spotted drums and juvenile smooth trunkfish here.

 

Jackson’s Wall/Reef (also known as The Meadows)

The mooring pin is set in the middle of several coral heads, which can be traversed. Various snapper call this portion of the reef “home”. Cosmo the grouper can also be spotted in and around this site. Jackson’s Wall is highlight with swim-thru's onto the wall. Once again, look out for Caribbean reef sharks. In the sand area of the shallow, a spotted eagle ray can be seen feeding.

 

Jax Dax

Similar to Angelfish Reef, a diver can spend time around the coral reef, or venture to the sandy area where garden eels call home. In the rubble of this reef, look for yellowhead jawfish.

 

Joy’s Joy

The mooring pin is set in 25ft. of water, but the highlight of this dive are the many passages and swim-thru's found in the 70ft. range.

 

Kelly’s Cavern

Water conditions throughout the years have helped form this section of Cayman reefs; specifically, all the passages which wind in-and-out of the hardpan coral. You will find the top of this reef rich in vegetation. Look for the elusive batwing coral crab hiding in the coral.

 

Lea Lea’s Lookout

If you descend and head toward the mooring ball, you will come across a “cut” in the reef. Starting at 35ft., this narrow cut leads to the wall. Keep an eye out for channel clinging crabs and lobster hiding in this cut. A pinnacle marks the entrance onto the wall (you can turn left or right). Making a right-hand-turn and swimming about 30 yards, you will find the entrance to the “Great Room” (entrance around 80ft). The diver makes their way through the “room” and will exit on a very large opening. . . being spit out at 30ft. At night, take note of the colors (reds, oranges, greens, purples) that are visible throughout the room.

 

Lighthouse Reef

This reef gets its name from the Lighthouse Restaurant in Breakers. This wall site serves as home to turtle, spotted eagle ray and the occasional reef shark.

 

Little Cayman

To summarize, the majority of the diving in Little Cayman takes place within the boundaries of the world-famous Bloody Bay Wall. This marine park offers a combination of dramatic walls, swim thrus, mini-walls (in the shallows) and pristine coral reefs.

 

When weather dictates, the CAIV will move to the South side of Little Cayman for diving at Windsock Reef, Grundy’s Wall or the Soto Trader (wreck).

 

Lost Treasure

This reef is a flourishing tongue-and-groove coral formation. Nearby (pending the wind direction), you will find the dive site, Spanish Anchor. Anywhere in the area, take time and explore the shallows for some magnificent and unusual juvenile life.

 

Kittiwake M/V Keith Tibbetts

Formerly known as the Russian Destroyer #356, this wreck has become a fixture for wreck dive of the Caribbean. Today, the boat lies in 40-90ft. of water. It provides a great backdrop for photos/videos, and offers some great penetration for the avid wreck diver. For more indepth information about the M/V Keith Tibbetts, go to www.jharp.net/brac_ktib.htm

 

M/V Kittiwake

Sunk as an artificial reef in 2011 The Kittiwake, a former submarine rescue vessel (ASR-13) rests 64 feet deep at the bottom and only 15 feet from the surface making her ideal for both divers and snorkelers.  You can swim overhead and see the main decks and topography of the ship, plus take a look down the smoke stack that opens up straight down to the bottom of the hull and the engine rooms. There is no end of rooms to explore within this wreck.

 

Marilyn’s Cut

A simply slice into the reef of Bloody Bay Wall is sometimes home to reef sharks. All types of reef fish inhabit this area.

 

Nancy’s Cup of Tea (Magic Roundabout)

This area is just outside of the bight of BBW and provides a more solid coral formation. On the shallows around this site, you can find a pair of old anchors, known as Paul’s Anchors.

 

Neptune’s Wall

With the mooring sitting in 60ft. of water, this site is a gentle sloping reef formation that leads over the wall. Like many of the West Side wall sites, keep an eye open for the passing turtle.

 

Ore Verde (wreck)

A staple of Grand Cayman diving, this wreck today lies in pieces against a section of coral reef and provides a home to many fish, both during the day and at night (midnight blue parrotfish). Hordes of chub, jacks, and snapper are spotted during the day. Always be aware of spotted morays or a green moray eel.

 

Pedro’s Pinnacles

 Watch Your Depth! Huge pinnacles from the bottom sprout upward to make this site what it is. Lying on the edge of the wall, be careful to monitor your depth gauge and you will find this most enjoyable around 80-90ft.

 

Randy’s Gazebo

“One of the most spectacular dives”, commented one diver. This site is home to some wonderful swim-thru's and some of the largest barrel sponges in the Cayman Islands. A wonderful “photo op” awaits at the “gazebo”. Be on the alert for spotted eagle rays just off the wall and turtles at any time. “The chimney” is a narrow passage that begins at 80ft., and “burps” you out at 30ft. Take it slow! And you can enjoy this experience.

 

Round Rock/Trinity Caves

This site features a nice swim thru small passage at about 70ft. Just down the reef you will find the famous Trinity Caves, highlighted by several lengthy swim thru's. Trinity Caves has been the focus of many photo shoots for various dive magazines.

 

Rum Point Dropoff (White Stroke Canyon)

Coral plates make up this site just outside the cut of Grand Cayman’s Rum Point. As all North Wall sights go, spotted eagle rays, turtle, channel clinging crab and lobster can all be found in this region.

 

Sensation Wall (Hammerhead Hill)

Found in the middle of the North Wall, this site was named for the coral formation that the mooring pin is set. Yes! You might see the elusive hammerhead here, but certainly keep an eye out for spotted eagle rays.

 

Stingray City

An introduction of this site is not needed – The World’s Most Famous 12ft. Dive. Stingray City is home to the many Southern Stingrays that pass the time away performing for divers. It is a “must” dive.

 

Tarpon Alley

Large sand passage slice through the coral fingers, leading out onto the North Wall. Between two (2) of these fingers, you can find tarpon displaying their buoyancy. Barracuda sometimes pose as “imposters”, lurking around, looking for a meal. On the wall, the beautiful spotted eagle ray is often sited as well as an occasional reef shark. If you are really lucky, you might spot a hammerhead.

 

Teachers Caverns (Bats Cave Reef)

High coral wall formations help make these passages a beautiful site. Elkhorn and staghorn corals are found in the shallows. Families of lobster have been spotted on nearby coral heads.
