Grand Cayman Sea Trek Excursion Reviews
This excursion begins a on the ship and ended in the grand cayman.
on Day 1, I signed up for the PADI SCUBA diver certification. Since it was quiet cruise, I was the only student. So I spent all night reading the manual. I didn't mind reading because it was raining outside, the ship was rocking, so I had nothing else better to do.
On Day 2, I took the classroom portion. Since it was just me, i just wanted 3 videos and took 3 tests. I was in at 1 pm , and left at 4:30 pm. Maybe it was 3 hours of my vacation gone, but since it was raining, i didn't miss much.
On day 4, I did the pool exercise at 7am.. Oh gosh the Pool was cold and I couldn't breathe correctly. After switching wet suits and warming up a bit, I was able to do the exercise. but I ended early cause i was cold. I finished up the exercises later on, around 6pm. water was much warmer. Thanks Laura for sticking with me
on day 5, we were the first people off the Ship being tendered to shore. We went in Don Fosters dive shop to do the open water dive. The water was perfect and the sights under water was amazing. bright fishes and so close to shore. We also another student that did the tests course and pool dives before coming on board, but needed to do the open water dives to get the certificate. so i have another dive buddy
Overall. the best experience learning to dive. Everything you needed was all aboard. and the dive was just a tender away. You might spend 6 -9 hours of your vacation, but it was time well spent. you might want to do the course before coming, to save a time. overall great experience
Amazing. No other words.
I do wish it were longer. The guy driving the boat out to the dive sit (Chris) was pretty cool. Hell, if we stayed longer I would have payed the guy to take me out and show me around the island that night. He was pretty awesome.Very safety oriented. The guide that was down there showing us around was awesome and didn't even get to speak because he had a helmet on. He was very animated and interactive. I'll do this one again for sure and see if this company has any other excursions. I WANTED to tip after this one.
