Comments Arriving at the GCM airport on a direct flight from DFW, I was met by a taxi driver the boat had meet the six or so of us on this flight. He had a van and we loaded up for the short trip to the boat for $10/pp. The return taxi van at the end of the trip made the run for $5/pp (price difference might be due to the arrival driver having to wait 30+ minutes for the group to clear customs).

Dont believe American Airlines if they tell you you dont have to fill out an immigration card going to GCM from the US. They didnt pass any out telling us we didnt need them (wrong). They also managed to not know what time it was and told us the wrong time (off by an hour). Not AAs best day.

The reefs are in phenomenal shape and like I remember them from 20 years ago. Most fish are hand-sized or smaller, but this was offset by some specials. Ive never seen this many turtles on one trip - 12 turtles, with a couple eating coral and werent bothered by divers/photographers getting up very close.

There were tons of 3-4 stingrays and plenty of opportunity to see them in sandy areas on various dives. Saw one eagle ray, a small school of reef squid, good-sized tarpon on Grand Cayman, octopus on a night dive, a few crabs, quite a few lobster, and lots and lots of grouper. Many grouper are like puppy dogs following the divers around and swimming up into your face. Anyon ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
