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!
