Comments 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.
