The good - service of everyone involved in the dive operation.  All worked
together to get divers setup on the boats (bring all gear down and setup on
tanks).  Dive briefings were effective - accurate and of the right length
of time.  Boat turnaround was good - getting empties off and filled tanks
on, gear unloading for those not diving in the afternoon.  Staff were
professional yet able to make us feel comfortable.

Cost of being in Grand Cayman is high to be sure.  Accommodations at
Compass Point (joint operation with Ocean Frontiers) included a kitchen, so
we bought groceries and made our own meals most of the time - this worked
out very well for us.  Restaurants are nearby when you need something
