Clearly Cayman Dive Log – Windows
Although he has great love for every site around his home of Cayman Brac, BJ’s new favorite dive is Windows—one located just below the 141-foot Bluff at the far southeastern end of the island. It’s one of the most recently opened moorings by the Cayman Islands Department of Environment and is only accessible when the seas are flat calm.
At Windows, you literally dive along the base of the Bluff and around Little Cayman Brac—a rocky pinnacle just offshore below the Bluff. Although the mooring pin is in 25 feet of water, you can literally dive even shallower and follow the unique topography that is the underwater extension of the Bluff. Look for nimble spring crabs, long spine sea urchins, scorpionfish, and lots of parrotfish, queen triggers, and other schooling and macro marine creatures. Because this can be dived so infrequently, the reef is in pristine condition.
BJ is a native Bracker who was named to the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame in 2018 for his contributions to the marine environment around Cayman Brac. He’s been with Reef Divers since 2006 and is a well-known resource for his knowledge about the underwater world and culture of the island.
