This month's Geo-quiz is brought to you by: Cayman Islands Dept. of Tourism
The Answer is: The Cayman Islands
In the Cayman islands, visitors will enjoy a different dive spot for every day of the year. Set in the Western Caribbean, this destination is comprised of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. The largest of these is Grand Cayman, which is often credited as the birthplace of recreational diving. In 1957, scuba pioneer Bob Soto opened the island’s first dive shop. Today, the Cayman Islands offer over 200 spectacular sites ranging from wrecks to natural wonders.
Take a short trip to Little Cayman to discover a deep-sea mosaic unlike anything else in the Caribbean—Bloody Bay Wall. This sheer coral wall provides plenty of marine life to awe at: rare sponges, vast sea fans, as well as a myriad of mobile creatures. What’s more, the plunge of this vertical reef is an unfathomable feat, starting at a mere 20 ft. and drops to 6,000 ft. Consistently considered one of the world’s greatest underwater sights, Bloody Bay Wall is a marvel not to be missed.
Dipping just 12-feet deep, Stingray City is Grand Cayman’s most notable snorkel site. At this shallow sandbar, stingrays careen through the crystal blue waters without a care. These flat-bodied fellows are happy to pose for photos and even accept a petting. Easily reached from anywhere in Grand Cayman, Stingray City is an unforgettable adventure for any age.
