We got up early because we had to take a tender to shore and we were told that we needed to get a ticket for an early tender because we had not booked an excursion with the ship. We had to meet Chip from StingraySailing.com at 9:00 am and the tickets were not going to be passed out until 8:30 am. Sometimes you just have to ignore the stupidity of the system and do what you needed to do, so we headed down to the tenders at 8:00 am and walked on with no questions asked.
We were on shore by 8:45 after sitting on the tender boat for nearly 30 minutes waiting for it to fill up. We visited a few of the shops at the Royal Walter Pier then found Chip right at 9:00 am. There were going to be 30 people on our tour and we were the last two to check in.
After a short bus ride to Chip’s catamaran we hopped onboard and headed out to Stingray City. There had been a 5.6 earthquake here yesterday and another 6.0 in Haiti this morning. The difference was that there was no visible damage in Georgetown and even Chip told us that everyone had just continued on as usual in the Caymans.
