Comments This was a great trip. Arrived on Saturday noon and was met at the airport. We departed for Little Cayman that night and began diving on Sunday.

Highlights of the diving were the Russian Destroyer on Cayman Brac, the seahorse at Marilyn's Cut, the Stingray City dive (billed as the best 12 ft dive), the sexual frenzy of Creole Wrasses during a dusk dive, the Great Wall at Bloody Bay, Freddie the petable grouper and his no-name partner, diving with a DPV (diving propulsion vehicle), the Trinity and Devil's Grotto caves and swim throughs with Tarpons that were not afraid of us, ...

Services included towels after each dive, hot water showers on the diving platforms, and munchies after every dive. Fairly standard but much appreciated. Not so standard were a couple of dinners on the upper deck of the boat, and having the munchies delivered while you were relaxing in the deck (thanks, Emma).

The crew was fantastic. They were Piers and Henri (captains), Kory and Tom (divemasters), and Emma (cook). They all worked hard and were a lot of fun. Henri had a lot of stories to tell, and this really added to the trip. The food was also fantastic. I would definitely be very happy if Emma was the cook on my next live-aboard.

The last meal was on Grand Cayman and included karaoke (don't ask) on the taxi back to the boat. I would place this trip at the top of my Caribbean live-aboards, and would happily do it again.
