Clearly Cayman Dive Log – La Mesa
Instructor and Staff with Reef Divers at Cobalt Coast Resort, is from Dunedin, New Zealand. She fell in love with the marine world when she worked as a beach lifeguard back home, got certified, and now even spends her free days diving and perfecting her underwater photography. She’s been with us since shortly after we purchased the resort and set up our own dive operation.
La Mesa is one of Oli’s favorite dive sites off Grand Cayman because of the vivid colors, interesting topography, healthy coral, and abundance of marine life. The name means “table top” which perfectly describes the large, coral plateau. It’s a small site as far as area, but big on divers’ favorites lists after they’ve been here. You may get greeted by the resident green moray and can find many hamlet species plus macro creatures like gaudy clown crabs and purple-lined sea goddesses. Most of the site is at 20-45 feet.
