Comments Main concern was weather as a hurricane was forming just west of Grand Cayman. DiveTech did a great job of finding dive sites with minimal surge and currents. We only missed one day of boat diving and they offered to take us anywhere for shore excursions on that day. Did not shore dive due to surge, but others were shore diving.

Cobalt Coast was nice and clean. People were friendly and food was good.

Diving was good and varied with Walls, Reefs, Wrecks, and Stingray City. Could not dive Kittiwake due to strong current, strong surge, and 3 - 6 foot visibility.

Saw the usual cast of carribean fish and critters. Most reef dives had schools of horseye jacks, black durgon, blue tang, blue chromis, and french grunts. Spotted Eagle Rays on a couple of dives. Reefs looked pretty healthy.

DiveTech was very helpful. We had one person in our group who had not dove in years and they gave her the extra attention she needed. If you needed any help or assistance they were eager to please.

Overall a great experience and plan on returning.
