Grand Cayman Diving, Stingray City and 1,000 ft Deep Submersible Dive
March 22, 2011
SCUBA diving, snorkelling at Stingray City and a 1,000 ft dive in a mini research submersible in Grand Cayman, B.W.I. (all March 2,001). The SCUBA diving was largely on Spanish Bay reef (including the north 'wall'), as well as 'bullwinkle's reef', 'blue pinnacle', and 'ghost mountain'. The night dive was on 'aquarium north'. The trip out to stingray city took in the barrier reef and coral gardens on the way.
The two-passenger research submersible, run by 'Atlantis Adventures', took us on a 1,000-foot dive down the Cayman Wall, not far from Georgetown. The little yellow sub, a Perry Oceanographics PC 1,203, was piloted by Courtney Platt, a part-time pilot and professional photographer (photographic contributor for Nov 1,988 National Geographic article titled 'Down the Cayman Wall', amongst others).
If anyone is aware that the mini sub still operates on the island, or knows what became of the Spanish Bay Reef hotel, or staff, perhaps they could post the information below.
