First time have dived with Don Foster's Dive Cayman and I thought it was a
well run operation. We stayed at Comfort Suites and shuttled or drove our
own vehicle to the main site, which is the old Parrott's Landing facility,
just south of downtown Georgetown. The boats were clean, and quite
adequate. The crew, especially Tom, Jason, Sterling and Isabel were very
good. We stayed at Comfort Suites, which was clean and certainly adequate
for divers. A restaurant on site, Stingers, was very good, for both lunch
and dinner. The coral looked fine, considering Hurricane Ivan ran through
last September. There was good fish life, turtles, and the reefs still
looked healthy. Trinity Caves is still a superb dive. 

I would return to Don Foster's and stay again at Comfort Suites. The food
on Grand Cayman is quite pricey, such as The Wharf, Reef Grill, and
especially the Cracked Conch, which was not as good as previous times and I
don't need to return there. 

Grand Cayman is still easy to reach and I'll come back. There is still a
lot of work to do as far as clean up and rebuilding. Hopefully, this can
continue, but is a very slow process. The diving is still superb, although
several operations shut down or have yet to reopen.
