Comments All good. This is an experienced operation and came as advertised. Rooms were air conditioned, and comfortable with some TV stations available. Full Breakfast and Dinner were included in price and the selection and food were great. The dive package we chose included a daily two tank boat dive in the morning. Leave at 9AM return by 12:30PM - 1:00PM. Dive sites scheduled depending on weather, made two crossings to Bloody Bay Wall on Little Cayman, about 45 minutes each way. The dive service couldn't have been much better. We were each given a numbered bag which we put all of our dive gear in, with the exception of our 1/2 mil. wet suits, and put them on our porch. The dive crew picked them up, and until they returned them after our last dive, we didn't have to touch our gear, except to put it on. It was always on the boat we had signed up for and ready to go. We chose to dive nitrox, only $85 each for the week for 14 tanks. Afternoon dives were available at a reasonable cost. We went the last part of July and the first of August. They had special low season rates and we absolutely love it. A true winner.
