Destination Reefs: Cayman Islands

By Leonard Ho - Posted Apr 29, 2012 08:00 AM
It's time to show the Caribbean some love again. While the diversity of fish and corals is dwarfed by their Pacific counterparts, the coral reefs of the Atlantic are still a place of awe and beauty wholly worthy of appreciation.
Destination Reefs: Cayman Islands

Golden gorgonians sway in dazzling contrast to the blue waters of Coral Gardens, Caymans.

The Cayman Islands is known as a major offshore financial center ... three tiny islands that make up the world's fifth largest banking system. As much as the Caymans is known for their finances, don't discount the natural beauty of these Caribbean islands.  While the number of species here is not as rich as the Pacific (and perhaps the Cayman banks), a tranquil, lovely coral reef seascape welcomes underwater visitors.

The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs around the world.  Through these high quality videos, Advanced Aquarist hopes we can all gain a greater appreciation of reef life beyond our glass boxes.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
