Grand Cayman Scuba Diving

This is actually from awhile ago but I realized I never placed it on the blog! Part of my life to make moments matter is scuba diving. There is still nothing like the peace and calm that happens when under the water.

B and I had been to Grand Cayman before and it is still one of my favorite places. When we thought to have a trip this great island came to mind. Grand Cayman has the perfect mix of great diving and fun on land - 7 mile beach always comes up as one of the best beaches in the world!

But now to diving!

First the critters of the sea.


Lobster. Too bad I see so many of them and then the first thing I want when I get back on dry land is to eat it! I never eat lobster at home but when on a scuba trip is to eat only 



Lion Fish  - luckily did not see to many of them as they are not native and have been eating the native fish.



Beautiful Coral


And now for fun with scuba poses - feeling weightless allows for fun poses!




I'm walking like an egyptian!

Learning how to ride a bike again!



This is the latest purposely sunk boat in Grand Cayman - trying our hand at steering it!





And the world famous swimming with the sting rays. You have the opportunity to feed them octupus  but a couple of year ago I tried that and instead one of them decided to suck on my leg - yes I said suck. They inhale food like vacuum. Instead this time I just kept putting it in the sand for them to eat.



B Staring down the ray...I think the ray is winning.



Psycho the resident sting ray came out - you have to hide your hands as they can smell the food on your hands.



Thanks to my frequent travel we were able to get the flights taken care of and due to hurricane season get a great deal on the room again at Sunset House - if you are a scuba diver this is a great place, if not stay somewhere else on the island! The benefit of staying at Sunset House is unlimited shore diving. Right off the dock there is a mermaid statue.

Cannot wait for my next scuba trip!

  1. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

Actually, allow me to paraphrase this.... Thanks for the food... But yeah, thanx for investing all that time to write about this matter here on your web site.
