THE 'FRIENDLIEST' ISLAND: Little Cayman is best known for its diving, fishing, snorkeling, and internationally protected bird sanctuaries. Jacques Cousteau rated the Bloody Bay dive site on the north west end as his #3 Best Dive Site in the World! The Cayman Islands have also been rated by Forbes Magazine as the "friendliest island" in the world to visit. Little Cayman Island lies 85 miles east of Grand Cayman, 450 miles south of Miami and 95 miles south of Cuba. The weather from December through May is consistent and reliable, averaging to 80 to 85 degrees with nice island breezes. The island is only 1 mile wide and 10 miles long and is remarkably undeveloped and under populated. There are only about 170 full time residents.
LITTLE CAYMAN DIVING: There are four top notch dive operations with nice boats to choose from on Little Cayman. All are very good. We recommend "Little Cayman Divers" which is independent of any resort and enjoys good reviews. Pirate's Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach resort are the other dive operations. Reservations and advanced booking is recommended for all diving.

GETTING THERE. You will first need to fly to Grand Cayman which most major carriers service. From Grand your only option is to take a 25 minute (90 mile) flight on Cayman Airways to Little Cayman which is about $176 USD for a round trip ticket. We recommend that you book a 2 hour layover on Grand so you can be sure to make the Cayman Airways flight to Little Cayman if your flight to Grand is delayed.
