Day 7- Pier

Like any morning, eating breakfast at 7:00, and going on the boat at 8:00. We set out to the first location, which was called Sand Hole.

Day 1 – Pier

After many hours of traveling, we arrived at the hotel Cobalt Coast Resort, located on the Northwestern region of the Grand Cayman Islands. This resort consisted of many welcoming workers which made my day a whole lot better due to the traveling. A few hours into getting to know the place, my partner, Blake, and myself decided to snorkel...
