We spent a week at Cobalt Coast Resort on Grand Cayman for Kids Sea Camp. 
It was our dive trip with our 4 year old daughter.  Kids Sea Camp allows
parents to go diving while the kids go snorkeling or other activities or
get junior scuba certifications, depending upon their age.  

Cobalt Coast is a wonderful, small resort on the northwest coast of Grand
Cayman.  The rooms were very nice and spacious and the food was excellent
and varied.

The operation at Dive Tech was one of the best we have encountered.  The
staff was very organized, had excellent facilities, were personable and
knowledgeable and promoted a strong sense of safety while allowing every
diver to dive his own profile.

I was surprised at how outstanding the condition of the reef was in Grand
Cayman - very large coral formations were everywhere  and fish life was
abundant.  We didn't see as many turtles as I expected, but they were
around.  We did see a number or rays on many dives and we saw a lot of
juvenile fish of all kinds, including several types of eel.

Finally, Kids Sea Camp was amazingly well run.  The activities were very
well organized and the supervision of the kids was excellent.  The staff
knows children well and I was especially impressed at how well they were
able to teach the young ones to be comfortable with a mask and snorkel or
regulator while also being able to handle young teenagers.  Clearly, the
staff are carefully selected.

All in all, there was nothing I would change on this trip.  The diving was
fabulous and the operations of all three entities were first class.
