Caribbean water

Can anyone here explain why the water in the Caribbean has that incredible crystalline transparency? Everywhere else I have been on the ocean it has been murky to one degree or another - nowhere else was it like the water in a swimming pool.

I'm curious about the natural processes that make the water there so unique.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
