Several years ago the wife and I took a cruise to the Grand Cayman Islands where I tried snorkeling for the first time. It was an extremely windy day and the sees were anything but calm. Regardless, I loved snorkeling and have dreaming about going ever since. Grand Turk, the largest island of the Turks and Caicos island chain, is another island I have never visited before, but it is known as a diver and snorkelers haven. Grand Turk island‘s coral reef system is supposed to be amazing, full of colorful fish and coral and very extensive. Within a very short distance from the islands coastline exists a 700-900 foot drop, often referred to as the wall. My wife and I in anticipation bought our own snorkel gear so we would be more comfortable and it would have a better fit. The wife is not as good of a swimmer so we have decided that we would do a cruise ship shore excursion that utilizes power guided snorkeling. I love swimming, but I do not mind trying something new!
So this is what I am really looking forward to experiencing. Armed with my Fuji xp10 everything proof camera, I am ready to shoot some video and pictures of all the coral and sea life. Supposedly a number of barracuda and a few smaller sharks like to swim around these waters so it should be really fun. Til next time.
