My 5th visit to the Cayman Islands, my 1st staying with Divi Resorts, hotel
staff are top notch and sensitive to their guest's needs, food quality and
quantity are excellent from breakfast through lunch to supper, no
"turista" here, dive operation from the well-appointed boats to
the on-shore staff and the on-board crew are excellent and very helpful at
all times, equipment repair and rental is available, camera and computer
rentals are available, film processing and camera repair is available,
resort management staff are always on site (ask for Max) and are very
concerned for their guest's needs and satisfaction. Our boat crew consisted
of Canadian captain Ken and Brit dive master Richard and they made it their
mission to ensure that our Central Florida dive group (Neptune's Underwater
Tours) dove the best sites with the best conditions available. Each site
was described in detail by our boat crew w/ one or the other of them on the
dive with us. We were fortunate in being able to cross to Little Cayman
three times to dive the incredible Bloody Bay Wall and Jackson's Bight
during our week's stay, and tanks were always available for day and night
shore dives. After your arrival at the resort, you never handle your gear
again during your stay. Your gear is set up on a tank for you for each dive
from the boat, and you use a resort provided mesh bag to transport it for
shore diving activities coordinating that with the boat crew so that your
gear is back on the boat for the next day's dives. You get as much help as
you want on the boat, a fresh water rinse is provided, a water cooler and
ice chest is on board for fruit and snacks between dives. Car rentals are
available on site or close by and an island tour is recommended to learn
more about the Brac and its citizens. Sea Itch was bad while we were there
so be aware of it and take whatever steps you normally take to protect
yourself from it. Bugs are not a problem except at dusk if the wind is
down. Going back to the Brac is always a pleasure for the diving, the
locals, the relaxation, and the increasingly better quality dive resorts 
on the island. Excellent visibility, no currents, normally stable weather,
beautiful corals and psychedelic tropicals, numerous shark and turtle
sightings, and the "Big Blue" diving the walls have made me a
repeat visitor for 15 years and the wife and I will be back. If power
shopping is your bag, do it on Grand Cayman as you transit through.
Thankfully there are not a lot of shopping opportunities on the Brac yet.
There is 110v current on the island, so no converters are needed. See you
on the Brac.
