Diving In The Cayman Islands

Cayman Island DivingIt’s no wonder that diving in the Cayman Islands has become so popular, as this Caribbean country boasts some of the best diving sites in the world. Diving enthusiasts can choose from over 40 dive operations, and over 350 sites that are marked with moorings. Add to the mix the excellent underwater visibility of 100 feet or more, and warm water temperatures year round, and it is easy to see why divers flock to these waters.

Although the best diving in the Cayman Islands may be a matter of opinion, many experts clam that Bloody Bay is one of the top diving sites in the entire Caribbean. The area was named for a historic naval battle, and is now a protected area. In addition to the clear blue waters, divers are attracted to the sheer wall, plunging almost 2,000 yards to the sea bed. On a dive here, you can expect to see a wealth of marine life, including groupers, triggerfish, and rays as well as a bewildering array of coral and sponges. The late Jacques Cousteau, who was no stranger to the waters here, declared it was not only the Cayman Island’s best diving site, but the best in the world.

How A Union Benefits You

For many people, when they enter the workforce they end up working somewhere that has a union but they are not sure what a union does or why they need to join it.  There are many things that people take for granted in the work place but that if it weren’t for unions, there is a good chance that we would not  have .  For instance, because of unions, women are paid the same as men for the same job. You would think that is something that would be a given but it isn’t.

Teamsters CanadaUnions such as Teamsters 987 Canada, based out of Edmonton, fight to get their members paid breaks, higher wages and more holiday time or pensions.  While some feel that a union is not beneficial for them, and something they shouldn’t need to join, if you do a bit of research into the specific union you are going to be a part of, you will likely find several benefits to it.   Read the contract that the union has signed and you will quickly see some of the items that they have fought for and that you are entitled to as a union member.  Your non-union counterparts may not get those benefits.
