Comments 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.
