Cliff Diving in the Caribbean

When my husband and I visited a few of the southern Caribbean Islands during a ten-day cruise to the area, we took a tour that included a trip to see ‘Cliff Divers’, local islanders who leaped off rocky cliffs to land in a pool of water at the bottom. The attraction was free to watch, but donations were highly ‘encouraged’, and we willingly complied. I was just happy that I wasn’t asked to take part in any ‘cliff diving’–I would have had to be pushed off, fighting and clawing against it the entire way!

Look at the man at the top of the cliff in the first picture, and see the splash he makes in the fifth photo!

Ready to jump.

Off he dives!

Almost there!

Look at the splash!

Once again, just happy it wasn’t me jumping or diving off that cliff!
