Saturday Saturday afternoon began another lovely week of diving here in Caymans. The guests started to arrive around 3PM with a couple rolling up around 5pm. We had the welcome briefing and introductions followed by a huge BBQ buffet. The guests spent the rest of the evening relaxing and enjoying some adult beverages.
Sunday We kicked off the week with two check out dives at the Doc Poulson wreck, allowing the guests to knock the dust off the fins and get comfortable in the water. On the dives we explored the coral encrusted wreck, and saw a hawksbill turtle and even an eagle ray that came right up to us! After that we made our way over to the USS Kittiwake wreck for two dives, one of the most famous wreck dives in the Cayman Islands. On the dives we saw an eagle ray out in the sand, a big loggerhead turtle and explored some of the decks of the wreck. On the night dive we saw an octopus, a few squid, a free swimming giant moray eel and some large channel crabs in the reef.
Monday We began our day with two morning dives at Eagle Ray Rock. On the dives we saw a few hawksbill turtles, a school of barracuda, several Southern stingrays and explored the nice swim throughs. After that we cruised over to the Oro Verde Wreck for two afternoon dives and a night dive. On the afternoon dives we saw a hawksbill turtle, a few Southern stingrays in the sand and explored the remains of the old wreck. On the night dive we saw an octopus that hung around us for quite a while, a school of squid and a very tiny decorator crab.
Tuesday We started off the day with two morning dives at Big Tunnels, where we saw a hawksbill turtle, several large barracuda, a few nice blennies and explored the swim through arches. We then moved over to nearby Spanish Anchor/Lost Treasure for two afternoon dives and a night dive. On the afternoon dives we saw a huge green turtle, the antique coral encrusted anchor, a nurse shark, a trunkfish and a couple of pipehorses. On the night dive we saw a very small octopus and a couple of large reef octopus, several banded boxer shrimp and a cowfish.
Wednesday We began our day with two morning dives at Neptune’s Wall, where we saw a hawksbill turtle and some very nice coral life. We then made our way over to Governor’s Reef for two afternoon dives and a night dive. On the afternoon dives we had two juvenile hawksbill turtles hanging around us for over 30 min, a trunkfish and many yellow headed jawfish. On the night dive we saw several large channel crabs and a few spiny lobsters.
Thursday We kicked off the day with a morning dive at Stingray City, always a crowd pleaser and a great dive for photo opportunities. On the dive we had several Southern stingrays hanging all over us, accompanied by the usual cloud of juvenile jacks and snappers. We then made our way over to Babylon for two afternoon dives, where we saw a giant loggerhead turtle that swam right through the group, as well as an eagle ray!
Friday We started off the day with an early morning dawn dive at Angelfish Reef, followed by a morning dive at the same site. On the dives we saw a hawksbill turtle and many Southern stingrays. After that we cruised over to Devil’s Grotto for two final dives. On the dives we saw many large tarpon cruising in and out of the cave systems as well as several large stingrays. We arrived back at the dock around lunchtime, allowing the guests time to relax on the boat or explore Georgetown. We finished off the day with a wine and cheese party on the sundeck, sharing stories from the week and talking about future diving plans.
Until Next Week
