Captains Log, private tours, sunset
5th August brought on the spectacular opening of the 2016 Olympics in Rio this year, and millions of people around the world were spellbound by special effects created by incredible technology. We wish the best to all those athletes who have worked so hard to get to this point.
Meanwhile, we were experiencing our own little special show put on by Mother Nature. We are so lucky to see so many Caribbean sunsets, but have to say that this has got to have been one of the best. This photo really is a point and shoot production, no special effects done by us bar the watermark.
This was taken during a private tour, in the North Sound, heading back to port. Pretty much had everyone on board stunned to silence. Grand Cayman putting on her own show. Just beautiful. And absolutely worth sharing of course.

The calm before the storm .... Starfish Point in Grand Cayman
It's hard to believe that just a three hours after the above picture was taken, Grand Cayman was experiencing a downpour of note! The morning tour had gone off very well with the sun shining down on our excursion guests, affording us a very comfortable tour and loads of photos opportunities at Stingray City Sandbar and Starfish Point Beach. In the above photo, you can even see Rasta the pelican paddling happily away near to shore. Don't know what happened to his two mates that were with him a few days ago, but hope we see them again.
The afternoon's private tour went ahead as scheduled. This was a bachelorette celebration for a bunch of lasses all the way from New Jersey, and they bravely put their faith into our Captain Mario who was proven correct! The storm hit the island with as much water as it could, but the North Sound was wonderfully rain free and even managed a spot of sunlight here and there. We hope that they enjoyed their celebration with us (no photos published OF COURSE) and wish the bride a very happy wedding in June!
Feeling kind of blue .....
