We’re talking Sea Monsters, people. So you know we mean business.
Now, everybody knows that Nessie‘s just a big ol’ lump o’ dinosaur, not a serpent at all. And Caddy‘s a figment of some screech-addled sailor’s story-telling impulse.

Beneath the surface of our crystal blue waters live a myriad of marine life.
Sometimes we can see them from the air — steely eyed shark congregating by the thousands, graceful stingray, gliding along the shallows.
