We're fortunate to have a month for trying out a brand new place: the Grand Cayman Islands, specifically the Grandview right on Seven Mile Beach. So we did, on our first day, what we always do: jump in the water!
The waters around the Seven Mile Beach, unfortunately, are pretty hostile to diving. Within the no-boat markers, the water's quite shallow. Beyond that, jet skis and motorboats recklessly zip around to the point that we're worried about venturing beyond even with our diver-below float. But that's for another day.
Today, we just drifted around the house reef. Too shallow to really dive—no more than eight or so metres—but clear waters. If similar waters are to be expected at all dive sites, we're in for an incredible time!
