Comments The reefs were covered with algae and sand. Many of the dive sites had damaged coral. There were very few fish. Diving highlights included a side trip to Little Cayman's Bloody Bay National Marine Park, and the Capt. Keith Tibbets wreck.

There was no shore diving allowed.

Unless you purchase a 6 day dive package, there is an additional charge to go to Little Cayman, and for a DVD taken by their in-house photo pro while diving on the Tibbetts.

The resort was clean and well kept. The food was awesome.

The dive staff were professional, and helped divers into and out of the water. This included setting up gear between dives.
