We made our ninth visit to Little Cayman, staying again at Paradise Villas
and diving with Conch Club Divers. Our 2001 stay at Paradise Villas
convinced us that vacationing with the resort operators, Marc and Sabine,
was a guaranteed wonderful experience. Although we have had thoughts of
other dive destinations, we have joined the group of people who are in a
rut (a wonderful 9 year rut) about coming to Paradise Villas. We enjoy
cooking in occasionally, and we made good use of the hot plates and grills
Paradise Villas offers. The frozen meats from the local grocery store have
been of consistent good quality over the years. To minimize costs, we
appreciated being able to order from both the lunch and dinner menus when
we ate our evening meals at the Hungry Iguana. Other staff, Emma, Patrick,
and Michelle, were also helpful in meeting all of our needs. We made eight,
two tank trips with Conch Club divers, a top-notch operation. One of the
dive masters picked us up in a van for the trip to the pier at Little
Cayman Beach resort to get on the Conch Club boat, Sea-Esta. It is a 42 ft.
Newton with head, camera table, water, snacks, etc. We were always the
first dive boat to leave in the morning, giving us the pick of the best
spots. Conch Club divers took us to Nancys Cup of Tea-twice, Mixing
Bowl-twice, Ringer Wall, Mikes Mount, Marilyns Cut, Great Wall
West-twice, Great Wall East, Eagle Ray Roundup, Coconut Walk, Lea Leas
Lookout, Bus Stop, and a new site N. of McCoys that is potentially named
Hatfields.  Owner Bill runs a well-organized, fun operation that includes
talented dive masters and excellent briefings accompanied by drawings of
the sites. Tim and Ann seem to have been with Conch Club divers forever.
Tim gets a gleam in his eye when it is time to catch a lion fish, and Ann
is the mistress of finding small creatures underwater. All dive masters are
very helpful. For example, when my wifes air pressure gauge seemed to
malfunction, Dave quickly attached another one to her regulator.  When
ready to enter the water, you simply bring your fins and mask to the stern.
Once ready, a dive master brings your BC and tank to you. Conch Club divers
serves people staying at Paradise Villas, the Conch Club, the Club, and
other locations not affiliated with the other dive resorts. We highly
recommend Conch Club divers.
