This kind of beauty which we have been enjoying lately is best shared with few words, so enjoy.
Sucks not being able to breathe.
THAT is why we emphasise to our guests to keep the precious Sea Stars in the water. Taking them out of the water is the same as someone holding your head under water - not a good feeling.
Imagine having your head pushed under water all day long, again and again.
They do not belong on your head and are also not rugby balls to be kicked around.
We need to look after life, no matter what form. Just look at these stunning specimens we found for our guests visiting Starfish Point. This is what we want our guests to enjoy, this is the heritage we want to leave to the future generations.
Keep them in the water folks - karma will be kinder.
Gorgeous to look at, so special to hold, but keep in them in the water, so they can grow old

July 16 brought on a pleasant enough day in Grand Cayman, offering the the full gamut of tropical conditions throughout the day, which means never a dull moment!
On this day we hosted a private tour for two wonderful guests from the Ritz Carlton. On the itinerary were the ever popular attractions Stingray City Sandbar and Starfish Point, but being great lovers of snorkelling, it was a great pleasure to take them some of the best snorkel sites that can be found along and near the Cayman Reef.
The caribbean waters were relatively clear and showed up splendid colours. Some of the best sightings were of the coral, gorgeous colours along the reef as well as sightings of tropical fish such Angel Fish, Blue Tang and a Yellow Stingray to name a few.
A great excursion which we hope left our guests happy - we know our crew just loved every moment with them and returned feeling all "at one with nature"!
We have been asked by visitors to our beautiful island why we do not go faster.
Well, first off, vacations are supposed to be slow and relaxing? Right?
Yes. "Big John" our gorgeous boat can go faster. Do we want to? Nope.
We truly respect and love the nature that surrounds us in the awesome Western Caribbean where Grand Cayman is situated, and we would like for generations that come after us to be able to enjoy this too.
Stingray City Sandbar lies in the North Sound, as do the snorkel sites and Starfish Point that we include on all of our standard tours. The water here is pretty shallow, and is subject to high and low tides.
If we gun our engines and behave like marauding pirates after a keg of sinking rum, we risk churning up the sand on the floor of the sea bed - and disturbing all the precious life forms residing there. We prefer not to.
It is said that a picture paints a thousand words, and below is a picture of the consequence of another operator's boat in a hurry - not a sight that we enjoy.
So, sit back, relax, take a deep breath, enjoy your vacation - and let's look after this awesome beauty!
