Late last summer we were treated to a massive school of dwarf herring in the top portion of Alex's Alley. Locally known as silversides, these tiny polarizing fish take shelter in the shadows of the wall during the day before making their way out over the edge of the drop late at night. The presence of these amazing silvery fish makes for an extraordinary dive not soon to be forgotten.

Cayman’s most frequented site by both snorkelers and scuba divers, this 12 foot deep dive is located in the north sound on the sheltered side of the north sound’s barrier reef. Fishermen coming into the sound would toss their leftovers into the water and over time, Southern Sting Rays made it their home. Named by National Geographic as the worlds most exciting 12 foot dive, Stingray City is a...

Decommissioned in September 1994, the Kittiwake made its way to the Grand Cayman in January of 2011, to be intentionally sunk. Within the ship you find ghostly sections like the captain’s quarters,...

Did you know that pike blennies and sailfin blennies have evolved extremely large dorsal fins that are used in elaborate late-afternoon displays to attract females.
We found this little guy trying desperately to impress his female neighbor.
Have you ever spotted a sailfin blenny? This one was not much larger than a pencil lead!

Grand Cayman's northwest point has some of the most spectacular wall dives found anywhere in the Caribbean. Big Tunnels is no exception. A vertical cliff face and colorful corals are not the only attractions here. Large tarpon loom quietly in the shadows watching divers pass by. These silver kings make perfect subjects for underwater photographers of all skill levels.

Diving with sharks on the west side of Grand Cayman has become a daily occurrence. Dive-masters and visiting divers have started handling these graceful creatures as they pass by. Our thoughts on this behavior...

Prior to the sinking in January 2011, the Ex USS Kittiwake was made safe by removing entanglement hazards found throughout her many decks. This process also involved cutting openings along both sides, allowing ambient light to penetrate most areas of this 251ft beast. The Kittiwake is one of the few wrecks of this size you can actually film inside without the use of video lights.

If you've ever been diving in the Cayman Islands, you most likely visited the wreck of the Oro Verde. Dive masters throughout the years have spun tales of high seas piracy and mutiny at sea. The funny thing is, the truth is way more interesting.

While making this video, I was reminded of a famous quote from the late John F. Kennedy- "We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came."
For many, scuba diving is therapeutic. It's a time to clear the mind of cluttered thoughts and focus on the beauty of the here and now.

Do you think diving can be therapeutic?
