The turtle release program on Grand Cayman seems to be working, we saw
turtles on every dive.  Lots of small fish around coral heads. Diving was
pretty easy.  I was surprised at the lack of color in the reefs.

The boat crew did a great job working with their guests.  We had a few
novice divers and they spent a lot of time with them making them
comfortable in the water.

I dropped below 130 feet on a few dives, the only concern the crew had was
verfiying that I was not on Nitrox.  I appreciated their concern and the
fact that they did not just take my word, but checked the Nirtox sign-up

I spent a few days on Grand Cayman before I boarded the Cayman Aggressor. 
I was surprised at how expensive the island is (the US$ is discounted 20%
to the Cayman $).  All food and beverages include tips and taxes, which I
did not find out until the second day.  At the bar always ask for an
invoice.  My hotel bill included a 10% service tip for all hotel employees
in addition to a 10% government tax, I was told this is required by the

Its easy to tax the tourist, they don't vote.
