UW Photo Comments Dive boat had a camera table but it was usually cluttered with non-camera stuff--tshirts, cups, glasses, clipboard, etc. Had to do a bit of arm twisting to get a camera rinse tank on board.

Comments Conch Club Divers runs a good operation. Bill, Ann and Menne are eager to please and are very easy going. They know the dive sights quite well. The dive boat is a 42' Newton with plenty of room. The boat picks up and drops off at Reef Divers dock at the Little Cayman Beach Resort; about a 5 minute walk from The Club. The boat provides only drinking water -- no snacks or towels. We used the pool towels from The Club. There is dive guide in the water for all dives but staying with the guide is not required. This makes for much more freedom for photography -- a good policy.

The reefs and marine life are some of the best for the Caribbean. Lots of groupers, hawksbill turtles, barracuda, reef squid, juvenile drumfish, cowfish, triggerfish, filefish.
Very few eels.

The Club is relatively new. We had a 3 bedroom/3 bath unit that was very clean and very well furnished. It has satellite TV and wifi; also a pool and spa. Would stay there again.

We were on the Little Cayman Breach Resort meal plan for 3 meals/day. The food was quite tasty with a nice selection of options for each meal. We did not go hungry.

If diving Little Cayman with 3 couples, I would definitely stay at The Club again and use the Conch Club Divers.
