Gave dive briefing but had to stay with group on first dive which was not
good because there were people diving that really didn't know what they
were doing and it was a bit dangerist at points.

We booked this dive with the cruise line which we would never do again. The
boat was way to crowded and some of the other people who were diving were
not very nice. We had to put our gear together on the front deck of the
boat because there wasn't even enough room for each person to have there
tanks and gear set up. I was thankful that my husband handled the tanks
because I would have lost my temper. They should have never had so many
people on one boat. We enjoyed or dive master Scott from South Africa who
helped make the crowded boat not as bad. Our second dive was better because
we didn't have to stay with the group and could get away from the people
who had no business being in the water in the first place. The diving it's
self was wonderful and the most beautiful we had ever seen. We would go
back to Cayman without a second thought.
