Are there Sharks on the North Wall while Scuba diving in Grand Cayman you ask? There sure are Mouth Breathers!
So, I just returned two days ago from a two week stint in NY to see family and show off our little one year old girl. Her name is Landyn. Cool name. Thanks.
Wake up the next morning psyched to get back in the water to go diving, and sure enough the company I work for, Deep Blue Divers, is diving on the North Wall here inGrand Cayman! Sweet.
Show up, fuel up, greet our 6 guests and off we go. New engine by the way. Even better.
So, to cut to the chase, the first dive was great and we are getting ready to jump in for dive two and the dad of the group goes on and on that he really wants to see a shark on this dive. We all were on board with this request. Naturally.
No promises, but you never know.
Don’t you know, twenty minutes into a fantastic top of the wall dive, we are greeted by a 6-7 foot hammerhead shark! Real close too.
I could have plucked the remora fish that was having a ride with it! Real Close!!!
She hung out with us for a bit and off she went into the big blue! Awesome day.
Day 2. Dive 2. North Wall Grand Cayman again. This time I’m doing a one way dive. Start between two dive sites and head to another! Great way to cover ground with experienced divers.
Same divers as yesterday, by the way. This time the son is pleading with us to see another Hammerhead. Pressure is on us now. So off we go into the big blue.
First thing, two Lion Fish, Bam! Took care of them. Then, like clock work, a Nurse Shark comes swimming by us. About 6 feet in length. Real close.
Great, took care of the shark request! Wait a minute, what is that thirty seconds later? Reef Shark baby! Real close to him as well! This reef shark had to be 6 feet as well. Back and forth with it for a couple of minutes. Outstanding!!
What a great dive. But wait there is more!! Yep, as the reef shark left our site, over the top of the reef a saw a huge dorsal fin go by us! What!!
I fin up a bit and it is a Hammerhead Shark! Two days in a row we see a Hammerhead. This big fella was easy 8 feet long. I just about went nose to hammer with him! We all saw it as it glided along side of us. Outstanding.
That is what I call a dive instructor appreciation dive! I loved every minute of it. As did our divers!
Safety stop at the end and the rest is history!
Catch you later!
