The Meteorological Service reported that sea conditions are producing swells of 6-8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 metres).
According to the director of the Cayman Islands National Weather Service, John Tibbetts, the rough seas have been caused by a frontal trough in the region, which has mainly affected cruise ships’ ability to dock on the western coast of Grand Cayman. Tibbetts said while the seas are rough on the western end, some cruise ships have the option of using the southern end where the sea is calmer.
Cruise ship passengers expecting to enjoy spending time on the Island were unable to get off because the small boats that bring them onto shore had to abandon plans of doing so.
