Booked a shore excursion on the Caribbean Princess and lucked out with
Resort Sports Ltd. Peter and Marlin took us out to the North Wall of Grand
Cayman on a clean, fast, spacious 46 foot Nekton for a wall dive followed
by Stingray City. They told us we were free to do anything that would not
break the boat. The 13 divers on board spread out and enjoyed the vessel.
Plenty of deck space and plenty of shade for those that wanted it. The wall
was beautiful with great visibility and no current but fish life seemed
scarce. The second dive was billed as the world's best 12 foot dive and it
was. Plenty of stingrays and lots of action as we did as instructed and
held squid pieces in closed fists. The stingrays were large (up to 4 foot
wingspan)and went after the squid with great determination. Both of us
ended up with large hickeys and bruises from rays sucking on our arms
trying to get to the squid. When all the food was gone we went in search of
Hector, a 6 foot green moray. Peter had said we might find him and we did.
Lured out by a piece of squid he placidly allowed himself to be petted and
placed around Donna's neck, certainly a dive highlight for her. Dive
briefings were thorough and they did not push either tips or the
availability of t-shirts. Time limits were generous as we were asked to be
back on board with 500 psi. Have had mostly excellent experiences diving
off a cruise ship and would recommend it a way to sample a variety of dive
We take our own gear but most of the rental gear we have seen seems to be
more than adequate.
