DIVING WITH INDIGO

I booked with Indigo Divers based on the Undercurrent reviews.  Wise
choice.  Kate and Chris took good care of us during our six days of
diving.

We paid a little more booking with Indigo, but it was worth it.  I loved
having only a few divers on the boat and the extra attention.  Fresh fruit
and cookies in between dives was a nice touch.

This was my third trip to Grand Cayman and it will not be my last.  I love
the healthy reefs and the beautiful walls.  If my group is small enough, I
will dive with Indigo again.  They run a first class operation.

SHORE DIVING

Lighthouse Point (Dive Tech) and Turtle Reef at the Cracked Conch were easy
shore dives.  

PLANTANA CONDOS

We stayed here at the recommendation of Kate at Indigo Divers.  I loved it.
 We booked a one bedroom ocean front.  It was on the third floor (no
elevator).  We had two full baths, washer/dryer, full kitchen, dining room,
living room, screened patio, daily maid service and free WiFi.  The
reservation staff and onsite staff were friendly and helfpul. 
Checkin/checkout was a breeze.  We booked a special, five nights, two
free.

While technically on 7 Mile Beach, Plantana is away from all the hustle and
bustle.  It was very quiet.  Their private section of beach was wonderful. 


Divers have so much stuff and I like having the extra room that a condo
provides.
