Cayman Islands - December-January 2014
A week over New Year's on the Cayman Aggressor IV diving, where else, but the Cayman Islands. We were a group of 17 divers from Ocean First Divers in Boulder and what better way to ring in the New Year? The weather cooperated with us as we were able to make it over to Little Cayman for a couple of days.
