We have been diving off and on in the Cayman Islands since 1987.  The reefs
are getting more damaged each year.  Grand Cayman west side shows the wear
and tear of all the divers but you can still find great areas.  Don't
forget about Hurricane Ivan.  We saw the damage the year after Hurricane
Ivan.  Every piece of soft coral and lots of hard coral down to 60 feet
were gone.  The next year we saw an improvement.  Even though the reefs are
not as beautiful as in the past, any trip underwater is a joy to do. 
Cayman Brac and Little Cayman reefs are in better shape.  Water wasn't as
clear as in the past because of the wind and choppy water but who cares. 
There's always next time.  We enjoy the islands because of the people and
their friendliness to us.  We did have to pay $15.00 in excess luggage
because we flew from Grand Cayman to the Brac in the Otter.  They only
charged .50 a #.  Coming back we were on the jet and didn't have to pay
extra.  Dress is casual and food is fantastic.  Must go on a diet.  Hotel
new furnishings after Hurricane Paloma. Our dive masters Mick and Dave on
Big Sister were great.  Didn't lecture or babysit.  They treated us like
adults with a brain.  We can't wait to go back.
