In 2019 I needed to go someplace different and decided to give Grand Cayman Island a try. When it came to turtle encounters for this trip, I did not have much luck at the beginning of the week. Towards the end of the week my luck changed.
For our first dive on Friday, July 19th we went to a site named Big Tunnels, which is at the northwest “corner” of the island. I encountered the largest Hawksbill Turtle that I ended up seeing during the week. The other people in the group had just gone into the Big Tunnel (I had chosen to swim above the tunnel and meet them at the exit), when this turtle swam by. I was the only one to see it!

During the month of July I was making an effort to stay busy and get out in my kayak more often. One of my favorite upper vally kayak trips is paddeling rom Wilson Landing in Hanover, NH north on the Connecticut River to the Ompompanoosuc River in Norwich, VT.
If you go at the right time of the day (I think mornings are best), stay quiet and know where to look, you can enjoy some great wildlife sightings.
