Little Cayman

And here is the Blue Iguana. There are only approximately 20 left in the wild and they are protected in the Cayman Islands. The signs on the road in Little Cayman say "Iguanas have right of way, please drive carefully" He doesn't look very blue here as he is blending into the deck, but if you look closely he does have blue skin. If you are interested in going to Little Cayman...check out the Little Cayman Beach Resort

This is the famous Bloody Bay Wall...the wall divers come to see. Just 100 yards off shore...under the water there is a severe drop off that goes to approximately 6000 ft. The wall is amazing to dive. The coral is so alive. It is like a tropical rain forest under the water. These pictures do not do it justice. The most amazing thing we saw was an 8ft reef shark. He was very quick at coming into visibility and then disappearing that we did not get a good shot of him.....but here is a picture of the wall.

The reason we came to Little Cayman was for the scuba diving. It is one of the top 5 dive spots in the world we are told. Seeing as we have only dove in Grand Cayman and Little Cayman, we are really not good judges of this. However, all the people we met up with assured us that diving doesn't get much better than this. Here is a picture of Wade under the sea.

The transportation. Little Cayman is so small (about 7miles long and 1 mile wide), that the plane lands on a gravel landing strip. There is no hanger...but there are a couple of benches! Completely how a tropical island in the middle of the Caribbean should be.
