I had the opportunity to travel with a group of divers. The package
included round trip airport transfers, 17 dives, accommodations and meals.
Nitrox was $10 extra per tank. A trip to the Bloody Bay Wall was an extra
$35 per diver (about 45 minute boat trip away from Cayman Brac). Costs,
all-in $2200 for a single room. (About $315 a night.)

Here's a breakdown:
Arrival at airport....walked out, looking for signage for transportation
with the Resort's logo on it. No such thing....just a guy asking where I

list of names, nothing to indicate that this was the "official airport
transfer". Folks in my group hopped on, so I did, too. It was the
right van. Would be helpful to have a little signage or something with the
resort logo on it.

The airport is only a 5 minute drive away from the resort. In fact, the
rooms overlook the runway. No worries, though--only a few flights a day and
they're generally quiet when they come and go.

The check-in process was very quick and very smooth. We arrived before

me move my bags in. No problem. I went to look for lunch since I had been
traveling since very early in the morning. When I got there, I was told
that lunch on the first day wasn't included. My package says, 7 days
accomodations, all meals, etc. but I didn't argue. (Also didn't get lunch
on final day because we had to leave 15 minutes before lunch opened.) They
