We arrived in Grand Cayman this morning. It’s the largest of three islands that make up the Cayman Islands, which is part of the United Kingdom. It is well known in the business community for the tax benefits that it offers through its banking system and in the tourist community for being one of the best scuba diving experiences in the World. We scheduled several activities this day; a visit to “sting ray city”, some snorkeling, and starfish beach. Interacting with the Southern Sting Rays was by far the best. We took a boat out from the island to a sandbar. The sandbar was not above the surface of the water, but allowed you to stand in about four (4) feet of water. Many people were there, some with other boats and some having taken jet skis. We went with another three couples, so our group as very small and our guide had the right bait. Within minutes we have 30 or so rays surrounding us. The large rays are the females and swam close to the surface where it was easy to feed them. Apparently their mouths are on the underside. They have a single bone plate on the bottom and a single bone plate on the top of their mouths. Feeding them felt like a vacuum followed by a tug on the fish. I had the feeling like they would not be content biting off a single finger but would want the entire hand. The smaller rays are the males and they stayed down near the bottom. I constantly worried I might step on one and get stung. I’ve posted a couple of pictures. More pictures and video to follow. Internet is still a disappointment. I feel the need for speed.
