Comments Overall great boat. Crew and guests all got along well, which always makes for great trip. Solid crew with good sense of humor. Food was well above average.

Word of Warning--if you want to dive Bloody Bay Wall or Destroyer on Brac, go with land operations on those islands as wind/seas appear to (from other UC reviews as well as our experience) prevent crossing +/-50% of time. Promo materials as well as UC reviews clear that passage btwn islands is iffy, but some on boat disapointed. Capt. tried, but seas were brutal and we turned back.

North side of Grand Cayman was outstanding and Stingray City was a blast, but only got one day on North side due to seas. Some on boat saw sharks (not us). Huge lobsters cruisng out in open. Saw one seahorse. Turtles and Rays were everywhere.

West side (7 Mile Beach) was were we spend most of time and it was decent, but variable by site. Eagle Ray Rock and Devil's Grotto were highlights for sure. Tons of turtles and rays on this side of island too. Nevertheless, clear issues with overdiving/population on this side of island.

Water was cooler than Island's web info leus to d believe. Dove in Polertec only and was cold on 3rd dive most of the time.

Overall great trip and would recomend to all.
