The Edge, a vertical wall on the corner of the reef located on the Southside of Little Cayman, is spectacular and deeply cut with chutes and canyons, as well as lovely colourful rope sponges and many species of wrasse and butterfly fish. The edge is a deep dive with a minimum depth of 66ft and a maximum of beyond 100ft. Cowfish, filefish, triggerfish, trumpet fish, angelfish, as well as many species of parrotfish, abound the site. The pudding wife (Halichoeres radiates) is one of the larger wrasse species on the reef with distinctive marbled markings around the eye. Excellent conditions allow very good light for photography making the Edge a must dive for all underwater photographers!
