    Stingray City - Schwimmen mit Rochen

    December 7, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Nach der Schildkrötenfarm fuhren wir mit dem Bus 🚌 zu einem Bootssteg und stiegen in ein Speedboot um. Mit diesem ging es nun nach Stingray City - einer Reihe flacher Sandbänke, an denen zahlreiche Stachelrochen leben. Dort angekommen (das ist DIE Touristenattraktion, weshalb schon einige Boote vor Ort waren), fingen die Guides einige Stachelrochen ein, die man dann halten (Fotos und so 📸), vorne auf die Nase küssen oder auf den Rücken gelegt bekommen konnte. Zur eigenen Sicherheit bewegten wir uns nur in kleinen Tippelschritten im Wasser vorwärts, um nicht aus Versehen auf einen der zahllosen Rochen zu treten, die ohne Scheu zwischen den Touristen durch schwammen. Die Haut der Tiere ist etwas glitschig, aber ansonsten unerwartet weich.
    Hoffentlich sind die Bilder mit unserer Unterwasserkamera gelungen✊🏻

    Nach der spannenden Erfahrung ging es mit Boot 🚤 und dem Bus 🚌 zurück zum Hafen. Da noch etwas Zeit bis zum Auslaufen war, gönnten wir uns einen Schokocrêpes und Weihnachtsstimmung bei etwa 26 Grad inklusive (siehe Video) 😂

    4. Landtag: Grand Cayman

    December 7, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Willkommen im Steuerparadies Grand Cayman💰 🏝 Circa 200.000 Firmen sollen auf den insgesamt 3 zum Vereinigten Königreich gehörenden Caymaninseln registriert sein. Allein in der Hauptstadt George Town auf Grand Cayman, der größten der 3 Inseln, soll es ein Haus mit über 18.000 registrierten Firmen geben😱 Zudem sind die meisten international tätigen Banken, auch die größten deutschen, hier mit Filialen präsent.

    Unser heutiger Ausflug startete mit einer Bustour 🚌 zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten von Grand Cayman. Da die Insel nur etwa 35km lang, 15km breit und insgesamt knapp 200qkm groß ist, ist das bereits in recht kurzer Zeit zu schaffen. So ging es vorbei am ältesten Haus der Insel (wie viele Gebäude dort bereits weihnachtlich dekoriert😂) zum Seven Mile Beach, einem der bekanntesten und (angeblich) schönsten Strände der Karibik - er ist dafür wohl schon mehrmals ausgezeichnet worden.
    Weiter ging es zur „Hölle“, einer Formation aus schwarz gefärbten Sandsteinformationen, die aussehen, wie die Höllenlandschaft, einer Rum-Destillerie, die ebenso für ihren Rumkuchen bekannt ist, und einer Schildkrötenfarm, in der Schildkröten aufgezogen und dann ausgewildert werden.

    Cayman Islands - Georgetown

    November 23, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Heute haben wir ein Abenteuer vor uns. Wir fahren erst mit dem Rettungsboot an Land, denn auch vor Georgetown liegen wir auf Reede und müssen tendern. Dann weiter per Bus und wieder aufs Boot. Es geht zu einer Sandbank - Stingray City.

    In dieser „Stadt im Wasser” können wir mit zahmen Rochen im hüfthohen Wasser spielen. Die Idee dazu entstand 1987, als Fischer bemerkten, dass die Rochen für den einen oder anderen Bissen an die Oberfläche kamen und sich füttern ließen. Dieses Erlebnis war auf jeden Fall einmalig und aufregend.

    Cayman Islands

    December 30, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    So, not a real stop in that we didn't disembark, but one we are going to claim! The journey from Costa Maya to Jamaica was supposed to be made at a fairly leisurely speed, around 500 nautical miles in 36 hours. However we found ourselves instead travelling at full speed towards the Cayman Islands as there was a medical emergency on board who needed to be evacuated from the ship. So we stopped just short of the island and a tender collected the medical team whilst we loitered off the coast of Grand Cayman for an hour.

    The extra speed meant a little way back into our journey, the captain announced we were just going to drift for a while as we were somewhat ahead of where we needed to be. This turned the already baking heat outside to an unbearable temperature with no sea breeze. However we were indoors, and whilst we were drifting we were graced with the sight of dolphins, lots of them leaping in the waters around the ship.

    As we headed onwards to Jamaica for one final time, we packed up our cabin and enjoyed some final drinks.

    Exporing the island "over the edge"

    December 27, 2017 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We have a car for a day to explore a bit and show Dominik the island. Walked up to hertz around 11am and couldn’t quite persuade toby to rent the big Volkswagen bus. So white Kia it was ...... we found pur favourite little pub on the water at the north of the island - had a cocktail - amusing that only dominik got carded not Emily. It was lovely to relax as the sun was setting.Read more

    Offiziers-Shaken & Verabschiedung

    December 7, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    Am Nachmittag fand auf dem Pooldeck das sogenannte Offiziers-Shaken statt, bei dem die Offiziere des Schiffes verschiedene Cocktails für die Gäste mixen. Zudem gab es lecker Vanilleeis mit Baileys 🤤
    Am Abend wurden die Gäste, die morgen in Montego Bay das Schiff verlassen, offiziell verabschiedet. Diese waren bereits vor 2 Wochen, also eine Woche vor uns, an Bord gegangen und müssen nun ihre Koffer packen 🧳
    An dieser Stelle mussten wir uns auch von unseren neuen Bekanntschaften verabschieden, die wir bei der Tour de Bar kennen gelernt haben - man lernt allgemein auf einem Schiff so schnell neue Leute kennen, hätten wir vorher nie gedacht😅

    Georgetown, Grand Cayman

    February 2, 2019 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Very smooth journey from Dominican Republic to Grand Cayman, cruising past the southern part of Cuba. We have found a very nice spot on 7 mile beach, where we will spend a few hours. The water is very clear and excellent for snorkelling.Read more

    To Hell and back!!

    February 27, 2013 in Cayman Islands ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Well we hit the town, that is after a 40 minute wait for a tender.
    When we finally got to George town it was like first day of the January sales, there where thousands of people milling around.
    We decided to leave the waterfront and take to the side streets, where John spotted a sign for the local bus that could take us to Hell for $2.50 each.
    So on we got and sure enough after about 15 minutes we arrived at Hell.
    The charge was only $2.50 each as I said, with no messing around or the driver asking for tips as is usually the case.
    The driver told is that when we were ready to come back all we had to do was stand at the front of the post office and a bus would be no more than 10 minutes.
    For those who've not been to Hell before it's quite an interesting little place with it's volcanic rocks and quaint little post office.
    For the princely sum of 95 cents you can buy a postcard and a stamp and send it to your family or friends with the postmark 'sent from Hell'.
    We had a good look around and too lots of pictures, then waited by the road and sure enough within 10 minutes a bus came and took us back to the port.
    Once again no hassle or tips wanted.
    We even had a chat with a lovely Jamaican guy who works on the island.
    I wish our pubic transport at home was as reliable and friendly.
    Back in George Town we joined the rather large queue for our tender back to the ship.
    There must have been 500 people queuing for the Oriana tender and only 5 queuing for the Aida Aura tender, obliviously the Germans can organise things far better than us Brits...
    Their tenders went back and forth like clockwork, ours either failed to launch, which happened with one of them, broke down which happened with another or ran aground on the beach which happened with the third one.
    All in all it failed to instil confidence.
    The tenders aside we all had a great day ashore, even of we didn't manage to continue our cultural tour of Caribbean bars as we couldn't find one empty enough to get served in the limited time we had left.....
