In ten years of diving off of various Caribbean islands, I have never had a
bad experience with a dive operator, until booking with InDepth
Watersports.  We booked in advance with Craig Burhart - the owner - who
told us he could take us to dive Little Cayman while we were in Cayman
Brac.  For reasons that are still unclear, Craig refused to accommodate
this request.  During the week that we were on Cayman Brac, we checked in
with him daily and Craig gave us a litany of excuses as to why he did not
want to go to Little Cayman, mostly clearly bogus claims that the weather
would not permit.

In fact, out of frustration, we booked dives to Little Cayman through
another operator, where we dove Bloody Bay Wall in perfect, flat conditions
and 100'+ visibility (alongside several other dive operators).  Then, Craig
charged us for a two tank dive despite the fact that we never dove with his
shop.  Considering that they charge about twice as much as the competition
on Cayman Brac and advertise themselves as the high end dive option
(despite having smaller boats and much less flexibility), we thought this
was extremely poor customer service.

In summary, I strongly recommend against InDepth, particularly if you have
any interest in diving Little Cayman or the other top shelf dive spots
around Cayman Brac.  They were consistently deceptive with us and not at
all oriented toward more advanced divers.  After this nightmarish
experience with InDepth, we did several dives with Reef Divers at the Brac
Reef resort and had a great experience with them, at half of the prices of
InDepth.  Reef Divers were extremely safe, professional, and customer
service oriented: on par with the best operators in the region and easily
better than InDepth.  The diving off of Cayman Brac is good and a lot of it
is accessible from shore; the diving off of Little Cayman is as spectacular
as advertised.
