Veteran diver picks Cayman for last ‘dip’

| 08/04/2013

Cayman_Aggressor_Frink_1832.jpg(CNS): Stan Waterman, an internationally renowned diver and underwater photographer who plans to hang up his fins this year, is making his last dive here in the Cayman Islands this week. The scuba veteran will be 90 years old this week when he takes his final dive trip and will be staying aboard the Cayman Aggressor. He is returning to the islands for his last dip where he shot his first film in 1980 about the Cayman Islands dive tourism. Waterman chose Cayman to start his dive film career aboard the Aggressor because, the local owner said, it provided the best platform for filming and had a lot more space than other boats of its kind at the time.

Dubbed his “Last Hoorah”, and hoping for a little assistance as a result of his arthritis to get into the sea, Waterman said on his Facebook page that once he gets in the water, he feels 65 years old again.
