Dive Log: Day 7

Today was sadly our last day of dives. But I think we saved some of the best for last. The first dive of the day was at Sand Hole reef, a dive site with both coral and sand located about 80ft down. One of the most notable animal at this dive was the Hawksbill Turtle. This turtle is...

Dive Log: Day 6

After breakfast we drove to a secondary dock and got picked up by the 42ft long dive boat. Our first dive site of the day was the legendary USS Kittiwake. Known for being a submarine rescue vessel, and for picking up the Challenger's blackbox after the infamous explosion, it is a well sought after wreck. The location of the...

Dive Log: Day 1

After an early wake-up and flight from Dallas Love Field, we made it to Fort Lauderdale, Florida; then to George Town, Grand Cayman; and finally to our dive resort known as Cobalt Coast. Soon after, our group hit the ground running with a quick snorkel right off the dock of the hotel less than a minute's walk from our...
