Cayman Island Passage
The Caymans are an easy and pleasant check_in, with free moorings. The scuba diving is supposed to be fantastic here. We only did a few snorkels. Nice reef and clear, clear blue water.
We’re off today after we check out to sail past the west end of Cuba, through the Yucatan Passage, over the top side of Cuba and then onto the Dry Tortugas. These are the islands furthest out in the chain of the Florida Keys. We’ll spend a day or so at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas, the old Civil War era fort. Then off to Key West to enjoy the US check_in procedure. And then continue on to Ft Lauderdale.
