Grand Cayman’s North Wall is a real summertime treat. Winds throughout the year change-making certain areas available for diving. The North wall is awash in big seas throughout the winter making it unsafe most days. Early summer brings south-east winds, leaving the North Wall flat like glass. The top of the wall here is shallow compared to the south wall dive sites. Some areas, like Princess Penny’s Pinnacle, are as shallow as 40 feet at the top. In fact, most dive operators will dive the top of the North Wall for both deep and shallow profiles.
Divers here can expect the unexpected. Schooling Eagle Rays, curious turtles, and shy reef sharks are often spotted cruising just over the edge of these amazing dive sites.
