This was the third time we have dived with Conch Club Divers and they
continue to be my favorite dive operation among the many good ones I have
dived with. We stayed at "The Club" which is closer to Little
Cayman Beach Resort than Conch Club, our usual hang out. It was nice to
have a short walk down the road to dive and eat. The Club is almost too
nice a property for the island, but the units were very well equipped and
very nice inside. Other than us, it was mostly deserted, except when Mr.
Tibbets' extended family arrived to celebrate his 82nd birthday on the
island. That was fun in itself and we spent sometime talking with Mr.
Tibbets who is a fountain of knowledge about the Caymans. The fireworks
Friday night to celebrate his birthday were beautiful to watch. Little
Cayman Beach Resort is still a great place to eat and to depart for diving
from each day. Bill, Tim and newcomer Ann were a fantastic crew, as usual.
We spent a lot of time underwater over 10 days and several times we went
exploring with one of them into nooks and crannies even up near the shore.
The crew makes you feel at home and if you are a careful diver and show
respect for the underwater world they take even more time to show you
things. Bill is fun and gracious as ever. Tim is one of the quickest witted
humans I've ever met and Ann added a feminine side to the crew that my wife
and two daughters appreciated. All of them were simply fantastic and make
it hard for me to think of diving elsewhere as I plan my future trips. The
conditions were spectacular and we had some really incredible dives. On one
dive I managed to catch a Red Hind attack a white spotted filefish. The
Hind then sat there and let me take pictures with the poor filefish
sideways in its mouth. A pederson shrimp jumped on the filefish to pick off
a last minute meal. Sharks were fairly commonly seen by someone on the
boat. Southern stingrays were almost absent, which the crew noted had been
recent and wondered if it was related to the increased sighting of sharks.
The Dive Boat, the Sea-Esta, is 40' Newton and has plenty of room and a
nice topside deck. Usually there were no more than 12 or so on the boat and
occasionally 6 or so. No cattle boat operation, for sure. Could anything be
better? Yes, I could live there and dive whenever I wanted.
