Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
Pack your bags and head down to the island of Grand Cayman for a two-day dive trip with Apollo 11 Moonwalker Buzz Aldrin!
You and a guest will suit up and plunge into two full days of diving with Aldrin off a boat provided by Divetech. The waters are swimming with exotic marine life, and you'll have the opportunity to see the Naval vessel Kittiwake, now an artificial coral reef. As an added bonus, you'll cast off to Stingray City to SCUBA or snorkel with tame stingrays.
As the day draws to a close, you will join Aldrin for dinner, during which you can discuss the day's discoveries and Aldrin's historic moonwalk. At the evening's end, you'll retire to your hotel (two nights accommodations are included) to rest up for another day of diving.
One of only 12 men to walk on the Moon, Aldrin is most famous for serving as Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot and his subsequent role as second man to set foot on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969. He also served as pilot of the Gemini 12 mission in 1966.
