Dive into Cayman presentation
The Cayman Islands have long been a magnet for Caribbean scuba divers, thanks to great visibility, healthy coral reefs and amazing wall dives. Plus, the islands are only a three-hour flight from Charlotte. Tuesday, Carol Hall will give a program on the Caymans at the February meeting of the Magellan Travel Club. Reservations are not required and there is no charge to attend. It begins at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall of Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1000 E. Morehead St., Charlotte.
