Three of us dove with Indigo four days on the Grand Cayman north wall in
June. We had a wonderful time, and can only confirm all the positive
comments about Indigo on UC and Scubaboard.  Indigo is definitely a five
star operation.  Trips limited to 6 divers.  Chris and Kate are extremely
knowledgable, enthusiastic and friendly and pay great attention to details.
 North wall has dozens of great sites. You can dive your own profile, but
we were happy to have these experts guide us.  Each day we did 100 foot
wall dive followed by a 60 foot reef dive.  Beautiful coral (on par with
Dominica or Bonaire), great vis, hammerheads, eagle rays, turtles, and
great variety of colorful reef fish - be sure to bring a camera and a
light.  Rained one day, but that only intensified the indigo blue colors on
the reef.  Indigo's 32 foot Donzi, Cat's Pajamas, has limited seating and
no head or camera bucket but otherwise is the most luxurious small dive
boat I've been on.  Great cookies, melon, etc during the surface intervals.
Towels provided.  Rental equipment was in good shape. They hot fill on the
boat from a shore cascade, but nitrox is also available with 24 hour
notice.  They pick up at all hotels, normally starting around 7:15 - so
they can't accomodate cruise ship divers unless you charter the whole

Our families stayed at Grand Cayman Beach Suites on 7 Mile.  We did the
fourth and fifth night free deal. Nicely furnished rooms with ocean views,
exercise room, clean beach and pools with shaded lounge chairs, wet bar and
hot tub.  Red Sail has an operation there and three in the family enjoyed
their $60 snorkeling reef/Stingray city trip.  But we were happy we went
with Indigo for the real diving.  Cayman restaurants are expensive. See
Indigo web site for good suggestions. We also had excellent dinners in the
Beach Suites hotel at Hemmingways and Bamboo (sushi), and also at Decker's
Restaurant, just across the street.  Azzurro across the street is good for
breakfast and lunch, and has free wireless. Only negative the entire week:
loud music from Decker's kept many of us awake till 2 AM on Friday.
