Field Notes from the Cayman Islands, July/August 2009

For our family summer holiday, we headed to the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean with our son Zac for our long awaited “family week” aboard the Cayman Aggressor liveaboard.

The conditions were ideal for his first taste of dive trips (he’s only 6!) with calm seas and excellent visibility. It made for an excellent week’s diving and offered some fantastic photo opportunities such as Stingray City, the wall dives of Little Cayman and the “Keith Tibbetts” destroyer wreck, and forays onto the islands.

Photographically, it was a successful trip, with Amanda spending more time modelling, with some very nice images being captured. We also managed to get some great images of Zac at the surface with his SASY tank, one step away from becoming a diver.

Back on Grand Cayman, we stayed for a further 10 days based at 7 mile beach and visited a number of the island’s attractions including the turtle farm, the south shore, the eastern shore and Rum Point.

I also had time for some sporadic dives, mostly around the 7 Mile Beach area and the North Shore. – JC
