Comments We booked a condo at Conch Club Condominiums, and were expecting to dive with Conch Club Divers. We were booked with another dive operator by the reservation center for our trip (which we did not realize)and could not change this upon arrival, so we opted to pay for a two dive days with Conch Club Divers for our own comparison. What a great decision!

Ann and Steve took us diving along with several guests from another residence. The difference in diving with this group was the true, pure, joyous enthusiasm for each dive shown by the staff - let alone the other guests! From the first handshake you are made to feel like a family member coming home, with the hospitality level of visiting your closest friends. Dives were tailored to give everyone the maximum bottom time possible, and to locate unusual fish and critters. The level of concern about the fish, creatures, reefs and island environment comes from the heart with this group - it is not just another policy mentioned in a briefing. When all safety, technical, amenities, and boats are equal, attitudes and ambience are what make an operation truly outstanding and memorable.

The boat was well-appointed and maintained - the luxury difference was having a warm water rinse after a dive. With overcast skies and a brisk wind, this was a great 'reviver' after a cool dive.

We would return to stay at the Conch Club Condominiums at any time; the condo was very comfortable. Our meal plan was at Little Cayman Beach Resort (a short bike ride away) and the food was quite good - much better than previous reviews led us to expect. We became true fans of Conch Club Divers, and hope we have the opportunity to dive with them again.
