Voyage To Grand Cayman

We anchored at Grand Cayman.
We got to the capital of the Cayman Islands, 

George Town,

 on tenders (boats that take passengers to the shore).

You can go back into the sea right here.

I’d like to swim with this equipment.

But we took a sightseeing tour for $15 (price for 1.5 hours in 2011) and went to look at the island. Our first stop was swimming with dolphins, this pleasure cost us $20.

One of them was even dancing on its tail!

The ticket price includes taking photos – if you like photos, you can buy them, if not – you don't have to. But you’ll get so many positive emotions!

There is the 

Turtle Farm 

opposite of the dolphinarium. We did not get there, left it for the next cruise. Not all at once! If we do everything now, what will we do next time?
We also went to Devil’s Valley – well, it’s just a mere name, as there’s nothing else to look at on the island. However, there is a post office and there was a whole line of Americans sending postcards to their homes. Probably, it will be also interesting for philatelists because of Cayman stamps.

And we came back to the city. We went to look at it. 

George Town 

is a paradise for shopping, it’s a free economic zone. Perfumes, watches, LLADRO, and Swarovski are much cheaper here than in Europe! And prices are in dollars...
In addition, there are a lot of restaurants where you can order turtle soup or simply a grilled fish.

Of course, we wanted to take a swim. We saw a ladder to the water right here.

We came closer to see if we could go into the water there.
- There are sharks! - I gasped, seeing a flock of huge fish.

But people were swimming around absolutely without any concerns. We also risked. It’s just an impossible beauty! The water is clear, warm, fish are bright and friendly.

We asked what was the name of that big fish.
- It’s a tarpon - the locals said. They feed them so tourists come here to swim - you can rent a mask here, a snorkel, a safe for bags or even sit in their bar with a beer. That’s a great idea, isn’t it?
