Warmest water we have ever dove in--too hot for wet suits.  Fish life is
not as prolific, and coral not as healthy as in past years when we dove
with Cayman Dive Lodge(which we miss!).   Only one dive site out of 10 was
above average and it was newly opened to divers.
Ocean Frontiers took care of equipment, cleaned and stored it, set it up
before and between dives.  Boats clean, and comfortable, and easy to get
into and out of water.  Divemasters and boat crew competent and helpful.
Only complaint about dive operation is failure to offer one tank trip in
afternoon; only two tank trips mornings and afternoons.
The condos are the nicest accommodations we've ever experienced at a dive
resort--kitchen well equipped, and all rooms comfortably furnished.  Small
swimming pool on premises, but water was too warm to be refreshing.
Restaurants in East End are just ok; no restaurant on site.
Mosquitos and no see ems were just fierce, especially in evening and on
beaches.
