Today's caribbean skies was a constant battle between radiant Caribbean sun and sulky grey clouds. The winds have weakened but we were still feeling a strong breeze and experiencing choppy waters in the North Sound (see below!). This is Grand Cayman's winter weather......

However, a good time was had by our tour guests. Captain Mario reports that one had the most infectious laugh he has ever heard, and that this laugh was owned by a really jolly person - so the excursion was one ripple of laughter of the other. How awesome.

The north side of Starfish Point proved unpleasant, so Captain Mario opted for the North Side of the beach. Every captain has "those" days, and Captain Mario put on a display of first - how not to anchor the boat and then a second - exactly how to anchor the boat - to much teasing from those aboard!

It proved to be absolutely worth it! All enjoyed this little piece of caribbean paradise, ogling the starfish in the awesomely translucent water. One vacation visitor even enjoyed a pedicure by a tiny little crab whilst here!

Can you spot the little white crab giving our guest a pedicure at Starfish Point? And just look at the clarity of the water there today!

These are the kind of moments that make each and every one of our shore excursions in Grand Cayman so unique - and we love it!

So if you are planning your next caribbean holiday, we hope you pop on over and give us something exciting to write about!
