  • Sea Turtles of the Cayman Islands

    On May 10th 1503, Christopher Columbus and his crew sailed past the three Cayman Islands on their way back from their forth voyage from the new world. Their journals noted the abundance of sea turtles present in the waters just off the sleepy uninhabited Cayman Islands. “It was as if you could walk to shore on the backs of turtles”. This gave rise to the name, Los Tortugas or "Turtles", which was later changed to the Cayman Islands. While walking to shore on the backs of turtles is certainly not possible today, the Cayman Islands are still home to an abundant population of Hawks Bill Turtles. Considered to be critically endangered, these turtles can be seen all throughout the three islands. Sea Turtles are breath hold divers.

The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, located south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is often considered a major world offshore financial haven for many wealthy individuals The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. While there is no archaeological evidence for an indigenous people on the islands, a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, refugees from the Spanish Inquisition, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden who was probably one of Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the taking of Jamaica in 1655. England took formal control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, as a result of the Treaty of Madrid of 1670. Following several unsuccessful attempts at settlement, a permanent English-speaking population in the islands dates from the 1730s. With settlement, after the first royal land grant by the Governor of Jamaica in 1734, came the perceived need for slaves. Many were brought to the islands from Africa; this is evident today with the majority of native Caymanians being of African and English descent. The results of the first census taken in the islands in 1802 showed the population on Grand Cayman to be 933 with 545 of those inhabitants being enslaved. Slavery was abolished in the Cayman Islands in 1833. At the time of abolition, there were over 950 Blacks of African ancestry enslaved by 116 white families of English ancestry. The islands continued to be governed as part of the Colony of Jamaica until 1962, when they became a separate Crown colony while Jamaica became an independent Commonwealth realm. .

Cayman and Jamaica were governed as a single British colony until 1962, when the Cayman islands became designated a British overseas territory, one of 14 territories under the sovereignty of the UK but not part of the UK, while Jamaica became independent. 2. Cayman was first sighted by Christopher Columbus in 1503. He named the three islands Las Tortugas after the sea turtles he found there. The name Cayman, a Carib Indian word, came later, after a local species of crocodile (also called caimans elsewhere). 3. The three Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, are located in the western Caribbean about 150 miles south of Cuba. George Town, the capital, is on the western shore of Grand Cayman. 4. The Cayman Islands were the birthplace of Scuba Diving and the popular pastime was introduced in 1957. The island is home to dive sites for people of all skill levels including both shallow options (like Stingray City) and deep dives (such as Babylon). 5. Grand Cayman is a fantastic place to do absolutely nothing. Hotels line the soft white sand of Seven Mile Beach. Five minutes on this beach and you enter lazy mode. Your greatest exertion on some days may be holding your hand out to take your next iced beverage. 6. The Cayman Islands have the dubious honour of having experienced the most hurricane strikes in history. Due to the tropical location of the islands, more hurricanes or tropical systems have affected the Cayman Islands than any other region in the Atlantic basin; it has been brushed or directly hit, on average, every 2.23 years. 7. The Cayman Islands have more registered businesses than people (population is around 56,000). The government’s primary source of income is indirect taxation: there is no income tax, capital gains tax or corporation tax. Based on income, the Caymanians enjoy the highest standard of living in the Caribbean.

Moody’s Investment Services credit rating analysis of December 2013 is instructive and still holds true. Affirming the Aa3 Cayman government bond rating, the report read: “…the country’s strong institutions further support the rating. A long history of policy consensus and a sensible macroeconomic approach explains its high economic development and still low debt burden. “Cayman scores highly and outperforms most of its peers in such measures as the World Bank’s governance indicators. The UK’s Aa1 rating provides further institutional support through oversight and ultimate judicial review.” The Caymans’ economy is built on three sectors namely – tourism, financial services and infrastructure development. The country is also assisted by a 0% tax rate regime on both companies and individuals and there is no capital gains or property taxes. This has attracted many wealthy people and blue chip companies that prosper from a fixed exchange rate and buoyant economy. The country has a population of around 56,000 with financial services accounting for 67% of its GDP. It is the world’s sixth largest international financial centre. It is characterized by low crime, political and economic stability.

Nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean, lies the peaceful British Overseas Territory known as the Cayman Islands. Consisting of three islands just 480 miles south of Miami, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman remain our little piece of paradise. Government The Cayman Islands highest official is the Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Duncan Taylor, CBE, who is the appointed representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. He presides over Cabinet, the ruling body of the country. Mr. Taylor succeeded Mr. Stuart Jack, CVO. The Governor's term is four years. The existing constitution of the Cayman Islands, introduced on August 22, 1972, provides for the government of the Cayman Islands as a British Overseas Territory. It established a governing body called the Cabinet, which consists of three officials and five elected members, the latter being selected from the 15 elected representatives of the Legislative Assembly. To see the 15 elected representatives or to get more information visit the Cayman Islands Government website. Currency The Cayman Islands has its own currency, first issued in 1972, whose basic unit is the dollar, issued in notes with denominations of CI$100, 50, 25, 10, 5 and 1 and coins valued at 25 cents, 10, 5 and 1 cent. The CI dollar has a fixed exchange rate with the US dollar of CI$1.00 equals US$1.25. Or, the US dollar equals CI $.80. There is no need for visitors to exchange their US dollars into local currency. The US dollar is accepted throughout the islands at a rate of CI 80 cents. However, this can be confusing to visitors: for example, a US$20 note becomes CI$16. Banks do NOT give a better rate of exchange! Major credit cards (with the exception of the Discover Card) and traveller's checks are widely accepted. Canadian dollars, Euro dollars and pounds sterling can be exchanged for CI dollars at local banks. In addition, Automatic Teller Machines accepting VISA and MasterCard with Cirrus affiliation are located at Cayman National Bank and other banks and at Owen Roberts International Airport as well as a few other locations such as the grocery stores. Geography The total land mass of the three islands is 100 square miles. Grand Cayman occupies 76 square miles; Cayman Brac, 14 square miles and Little Cayman, 10 square miles. Grand Cayman is approximately 22 miles long and 8 miles at its widest point, reaching a maximum elevation of 79.77 feet in North Side. Cayman Brac is 14 miles long and 2 miles wide and has the most dramatic topography of the trio. Its majestic Bluff rises west to east along the length of the island to 151.75 above Spot Bay. Many mysterious caves are carved throughout this awe-inspiring natural attraction. Little Cayman, only 10 miles long and a mile wide, is flat, reaching a maximum elevation of 55.75 ft. Its famous Bloody Bay wall Marine Park has been called one of the world's best dive sites. Inland, the 203 - acre Booby Pond Nature Reserve is a RAMSAR site and nesting ground for the Caribbean's largest population of Red Footed Boobies.

Cayman Water has begun construction on a new water tank and a new desalination plant at its Abel Castillo Water Works facility in order to meet the demands posed by Grand Cayman’s growing population. The tank is nearly completed and will be operational by June, but the new desalination plant will not be up and running until December. At that point, Cayman Water will be capable of producing 4,650,000 gallons of potable water a day, and it will be able to store up to three days’ worth of water.

The Cayman Islands is an autonomous British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. The 264-square-kilometre (102-square-mile) territory comprises the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman located south of Cuba, northeast of Costa Rica, north of Panama, east of Mexico and northwest of Jamaica. Its population is approximately 60,000, and its capital is George Town. The Cayman Islands are considered to be part of the geographic Western Caribbean Zone as well as the Greater Antilles. The territory is often considered a major world offshore financial haven for many wealthy individuals. The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. While there is no archaeological evidence for an indigenous people on the islands, a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica. The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden who was probably one of Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the taking of Jamaica in 1655. England took formal control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, as a result of the Treaty of Madrid of 1670. Following several unsuccessful attempts at settlement, a permanent English-speaking population in the islands dates from the 1730s. With settlement, after the first royal land grant by the Governor of Jamaica in 1734, came the perceived need for slaves. Many were brought to the islands from Africa; this is evident today with the majority of native Caymanians being of African and English descent. The results of the first census taken in the islands in 1802 showed the population on Grand Cayman to be 933 with 545 of those inhabitants being enslaved. Slavery was abolished in the Cayman Islands in 1833. At the time of abolition, there were over 950 Blacks of African ancestry enslaved by 116 white families of English ancestry. The islands continued to be governed as part of the Colony of Jamaica until 1962, when they became a separate Crown colony while Jamaica became an independent Commonwealth realm. The Cayman Islands historically have been a tax-exempt destination. On 8 February 1794, the Caymanians rescued the crews of a group of ten merchant ships, including HMS Convert, an incident that has since become known as the Wreck of the Ten Sail. The ships had struck a reef and run aground during rough seas. Legend has it that King George III rewarded the island with a promise never to introduce taxes as compensation for their generosity, as one of the ships carried a member of the King's own family. While this remains a popular legend, the story is not true. The government of the Cayman Islands has always relied on indirect and not direct taxes. The islands have never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or any wealth tax, making them a popular tax haven. On 11 September 2004 the island of Grand Cayman, which lies largely unprotected at sea level, was hit by Hurricane Ivan, creating an 8-ft storm surge which flooded many areas of Grand Cayman. An estimated 83% of the dwellings on the island were damaged including 4% requiring complete reconstruction. A reported 70% of all dwellings suffered severe damage from flooding or wind. Another 26% sustained minor damage from partial roof removal, low levels of flooding, or impact with floating or wind driven hurricane debris. Power, water and communications were disrupted for months in some areas as Ivan was the worst hurricane to hit the islands in 86 years. Grand Cayman began a major rebuilding process and within two years its infrastructure was nearly returned to pre-hurricane status. Due to the tropical location of the islands, more hurricane or tropical systems have affected the Cayman Islands than any other region in the Atlantic basin; it has been brushed or directly hit, on average, every 2.23 years.

The Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory, encompasses 3 islands in the western Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman, the largest island, is known for its beach resorts and varied scuba diving and snorkelling sites. Cayman Brac is popular for deep-sea fishing of tuna, marlin and barracuda. Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman Island is the largest of the three Cayman Islands. Whether you are looking for complete relaxation, exquisite dining, exciting nightlife or the awesome underwater sights of our oh-so-accessible reefs, we have something for everyone. The water, the beach discover the nature that makes us beautiful. On the west side of Grand Cayman you will find the famous Seven Mile Beach, the crescent-shaped natural wonder with boundless capacity for relaxation. With sand stretching as far as the eye can see, Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is often rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Caribbean - and the least populated. Take a trip into the North Sound and visit Stingray City and the Sandbar where you and your family have the rare opportunity to play with friendly Southern Stingrays. ------------- If you want to get off the beaten path and you are looking for adventure, then a visit to Cayman Brac on your beach holiday is a must. Named for its breathtaking 140 ft bluff, the “Brac” is a rugged and charming 14 square miles and provides adventure seekers and nature lovers with the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our islands’ most dramatic scenery, exotic flora and fauna. Those of us who make our home on Cayman Brac take great pride in our island. ---------- The least developed, smallest and most tranquil of our three Cayman Islands, Little Cayman epitomises the definition of "barefoot luxury". Our beautiful island offers seclusion and striking scenery everywhere you look, making it the perfect romantic getaway and one of the top honeymoon destinations. With a population of less than 170, this Caribbean honeymoon destination remains uninhabited. Only ten miles long and one mile wide, Little Cayman offers you a rare combination of sun drenched solitude, glistening beach and miles of untouched tropical wilderness. --------- Find out more tour info on our website: http://banita.lv/ Contacts us: info@banita.lv www.banita.lv The video(s) brought to you by "Cayman Islands Department of Tourism" and is offered to the public for information and entertainment purposes only.

Scuba Diving in Grand Cayman 2018, Grand Cayman diving packages, Grand Cayman Districts, Grand Cayman Attractions Travel Vlog 4K https://www.youtube.com/TravelVlog4K The Cayman Islands are a group of islands in the Caribbean Sea approximately ninety miles south of Cuba. Grand Cayman is by far the largest, the most populous, and the most visited. Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, together referred to as the Sister Islands, are remote, rural, and sparsely populated. The great majority of visitors arrive by cruise ship to spend the day in Georgetown or doing activities elsewhere in Grand Cayman. Those who vacation in Cayman often come for excellent scuba diving or for the white sands, turquoise waters, and exclusive hotels of Seven Mile Beach. The Cayman Islands function as a self-governing British Overseas Territory. George Town is the capital and with only 20 000 people, is the largest settlement in the islands. Districts, Settlements, and Regions ============================= Grand Cayman ============= George Town - the islands' capital city, the largest settlement, and the hub of commerce and tourism. It is also the location of the main ferry port. Its population is approximately 20 000 inhabitants with as many as 10 000 to 15 000 thousand additional cruise ship visitors and tourists on busy days. George Town has a small, historical downtown area with a number of attractions, shopping areas, and restaurants within a few minutes' walk from the ferry port. Seven Mile Beach - a long stretch of white sand beach, calm turquoise waters, and exclusive luxury hotels. There are also shops and restaurants across the street. The beach itself is public and can be accessed through marked "public beach access" paths if you are not staying at one of the hotels. West Bay - The region north of George Town on the west side of the island. Home to many Caymanian residents as well as popular tourist attractions like the Turtle Farm and the Dolphin Discovery. Bodden Town - A smaller settlement on the south side of the island. East End - The farthest east region of the island. Sparsely populated and home to a few resorts. North Side - The north shore of the island, west of Frank Sound Road. Home to beachside cottage mansions, a few resorts and restaurants, and a few tourist destinations including Rum Point and Starfish point. Diving ========= Ever heard of Australia's Great Barrier Reef? Well, Cayman's got a barrier reef too, and it's a scuba diver's dream! If you are already certified, there are plenty of options for offshore diving or a spot on a dive boat. There are also options for "try it out" fun dives for beginners that don't require any certification.

Liz's Awesome Fun Bay, North Side, Toll Free: 1-800-945-7884, fax: 345-945-6875. Snorkelling ========== Want to take your first look at sea life? You'll need a mask, a snorkel tube, and a pair of fins. Many dive shops rent gear, or if you join an organized snorkel tour they will provide you with some. It takes a little getting used to, but you can see lots of neat fish without venturing far from the beach, so give it a go! Don't feed the fish! Some people think it's cute, but it's actually unhealthy food for them, plus it trains them to chase tourists looking for a handout. And watch out: the chubs bite!

On May 10th 1503, Christopher Columbus and his crew sailed past the three Cayman Islands on their way back from their forth voyage from the new world. Their journals noted the abundance of sea turtles present in the waters just off the sleepy uninhabited Cayman Islands. “It was as if you could walk to shore on the backs of turtles”. This gave rise to the name, Los Tortugas or "Turtles", which was later changed to the Cayman Islands. While walking to shore on the backs of turtles is certainly not possible today, the Cayman Islands are still home to an abundant population of Hawks Bill Turtles. Considered to be critically endangered, these turtles can be seen all throughout the three islands. Sea Turtles are breath hold divers. This means they breathe air from the surface much like you or I. It is for this reason that we never touch, tease or harass turtles while diving. Because they have a limited amount of air in their lungs, if excited, these turtles can quickly burn through their limited supply of air, causing the turtle to drown. Sea turtles make the perfect subject for any photographer or videographer. Their slow movement can be used to your advantage and will often pose for calm, non aggressive divers. Photographing these majestic creatures is easily done with a steady hand, patience and by following a few simple tips. Stalk your subject. Never swim directly at the Turtle. Let him know your there for a few moments so he can get used to your presence Anticipate his movement. If you can situate yourself in his path, you can get a great shot as he swims toward you Relax. Heavy breathing and lots of bubbles can run off most critters Never chase a turtle. This will result in shots of his backside only. Practice good buoyancy. Make sure your not touching anything living. Remember, take only pictures, leave only bubbles! Happy Diving!
