Very nice trip with our dive shop (Wateree Dive Center in Columbia, SC).
Diving was very nice, good viz, good weather and nice critters, small and
large. Saw good many turtles, small and adult. Divi Tiara has put money
into upgrading the facilities on shore and rooms were nice and food was
outstanding. The dive staff was excellent (Daniel and Nicky). However, they
need to put money into the boats. Daniel was under contract for a month
with his own boat from Grand Cayman and his was excellent with 16 divers.
However, the other part of our group (32 of us in all) had problems with
their boat about every day. One boat was in the anchorage with an engine
pulled and the other one was on its last leg, it seemed. The staff did
their best with what they had to work with and it seems the problem is with
the central office, not on Cayman Brac. These were the same boats we were
on here 9 years ago. Cayman Airways from Cayman Brac to Grand Cayman is a
study in inefficiency. All in all, a fun trip and I'll probably go back
some time. Hope the boats are better and the airline more efficient.
