Cruise 2 - Day 3 - Grand Cayman

Did a scuba dive in the Grand Caymans. Was hoping for great visibility, but like my experiences in the Florida Keys, winds are stirring up a lot of debris and so it wasn't too great. On the other hand, after 90 or so dives it was the first time that I've dived without a wet suit or dry suit. Click the picture to see more…
