One of everyone’s favorite shore dive sites on Grand Cayman is Macabuca. When I say shore dive, it means where you can simply jump in the water and start diving – no boat required. Macabuca is a dive operation and restaurant in West Bay, close to the Turtle Farm.
Not long after getting into the water and once we were 60-70ft down, I was able to get this cool shot of a boat overhead. It always amazes me how sound travels in water – it is loud and clear. But its also very difficult, compared to outside of water, to locate where the sound comes from.
The highlight of the dive was no doubt the friendly turtle we encountered. The lovely turtle swam slowly and gracefully with us for a few minutes. Was not afraid of us at all.
Here you can see how close to us it was – great experience. Such a lovely animal.
Some nice looking coral and formations. The pictures do not do justice – they are much more colorful, less “green” than they look here.
Of course – a diving selfie is required! This picture attests to the clarity of the water. I am +-70ft down here and you can see the surface, the sun, etc. Of course this being Cayman, it was nice and sunny out.
So there you have it – great diving as usual in Grand Cayman. There were lots of people out diving yesterday and lots of tourists and locals alike having lunch/drinks at the outdoor restaurant. A great place for sure. 🙂
