We came to Grand Cayman to dive the Kittiwake, and it did not disappoint.
The foundation has done an outstanding job with it--very accessible, with
lots of swim throughs and rooms to explore. Hopefully, it will get fishier
as the years progress.

Cobalt Coast Resort was excellent. Lovely staff, large and comfy rooms,
very good meals (we took the plan) It is  ...

Hi Laura,

I last dived Grand Cayman West and North during 2 stays at Cobalt Coast in
2007 and 2008. I remember the dives as excellent, comparing favorably with
half a dozen prior trips going back to 1997. I hope things have not
deteriorated significantly.

Before you write-off Grand Cayman, you might want to dive the East end. I
had two stays at Compass Point, diving with Ocean Frontiers, in 2011.
Diving was spectacular and the operator was fantastic. Little Cayman is my
favorite Caribbean location, GC East end very well may be 2nd.

Hey Craig! 

We had orginally planned to come to Grand Cayman just for the Kittiwake,
and then move on to Little Cayman; but we had time constraints. I've only
dived   Bloody Bay Wall once and I thought it was excellent. Would love to
go back. I would be willing to give the East End a try, but it seems like
the sea conditions (chop, wind, etc,) are a frequent concern? In any case,
the East End isn't very convenient if you want to dive the Kittiwake. We
would definitely go back for that--this was my dad's last ship (diving
officer and chief engineer) and there is a plaque for him below, so we have
a bit of a personal connection.
