One of the best organized operations that we have experienced. The entire
staff is friendly and very accommodating. Nitrox is readily available. The
Nauticat dive boat was well designed and fast. The boat was very roomy
for 12-16 divers, and a crew of two. Fresh towels, fresh drinking water,
lemonade, ice chest, separate mask and camera rinse tanks. The predive
briefings were very informative and they guide each dive. However, you can
dive your own computer profiles. East End walls and reefs are in very good
condition. These dive sites are great for experienced and conscientious
divers, but beginner and damage-prone divers should stay away. If dive
sites are too choppy on the South side, then the less choppy North side was
only 20-30 minutes away. Accommodations at The Reef Resort were excellent
and the East End of the island is remote and away from mainstream
Georgetown. Save money. Make arrangements to get a room with a kitchenette
and rent a car for the week (Warning: they drive on the left). Go to the
supermarket near the airport and get enough groceries for all your meals.
Stay away from posh restaurants and even the fast food chains. Look for
places to eat that the locals go to such as roadside pubs or outdoor
barbecues, ask the dive shop for recommendations. One of our
recommendations is Vivines Kitchen that was half mile from the dive shop.
This is actually Vivines house where you can your order at her back door
and eat on picnic tables behind her house. Her prices were very reasonable
for Cayman standards and a great place to have lunch after your morning
dives. We love to try these places that are off the beaten path.
