I can’t believe that the idea of a cargo port at Half Moon Bay has surfaced yet again.
This is one of the most idiotic proposals I have ever witnessed in Cayman.
If the object is to destroy some of the best shallow dive sites on the whole Island, which lie just off shore, then by all means proceed.
Just don’t cry when dive tourism falls further. Cayman’s main asset is its underwater splendour.
I believe that a study commissioned by the water sports association last year proved that divers and their accompanying families contribute a great deal to the Cayman economy as stay over visitors – far more than the cruisers.
It would be very interesting to know who owns the property of the port sites being considered.
