We were trying to decide what the next topic of our Sail Cayman Blog would be and lo and behold we received an email from Orneil Galbraith, one of our Sail Cayman Captains from a wonderful snorkeling charter he had with some of our Sail Cayman guests this week. And just like that we had the perfect topic to blog about because snorkeling in Cayman is inevitably and always a great time.
Orneil happens to be an excellent free diver and snorkeler so let’s take a look at his photos and tell you some more about these really cool ocean creatures;
Spotted Drums as you can sea are very unique looking fish. The Juveniles are born with pea sized bodies, and long flag-like tails. As they mature the tail fins become smaller and the stripes become more noticeable. Quite rare and very hard to spot as they like to hid under coral heads.
Stunning Caribbean Reef Squid. They change colours continuously, truly brilliant little creatures that have their own jet propulsion that allows them to swim forwards and backwards and shoot out of harm’s way super fast.
Back at the boat Orneil was greeted by a Remore, also knows as a suckerfish as they have ‘sucker pads’ on their heads. Commonly seen on sharks and rays, these fish hang on for any morsel of food and a fast ride.
We hope you enjoyed our blog this week on our Snorkeling Charter in Cayman and we hope that, when you do make it down to Grand Cayman we can show you our awesome underwater world!
