This was our fifth trip to Pirates Point, and there are many reasons we
keep coming back.  I just don't know why we stayed away so long between
trips!   My wife and I are relatively experienced divers, and always find
the attention of the dive staff at Pirates Point to be excellent.  Gay,
Martha, Michelle, Mike and Bob are all wonderful and completely focused on
making good divers better.  Our 13 year old son was doing his open water
certification, and Bob, in particular, was great at putting him through his
skills and encouraging his success.  So we rate the dive staff competency
and service levels among the best we encounter.

It was truly wonderful being back in Little Cayman.  Most days the weather
permitted diving on the North Side, along Bloody Bay Wall, Jackson Wall and
the Mixing Bowl where the two meet.  On the two days where the weather was
not favorable on the North Side, we explored some great new sites on the
South Side, including Uncle Lucky's, the first time the site was dived by
Pirates Point staff.  Lots of fish life.  My personal favorites: chromis
spawning, tiny baby fairy basslets swarming on a coral head, juvenile queen
triggers, juvenile yellow tail damselfish (the "Disco Damsel"). 
One of the largest lobsters I've ever seen, and plenty of turtles swimming
among us.  The Wall Blue is still the most amazing color in Nature's
pallette.  Great diving.

So back to shore.  Gladys continues to amaze us with her hospitaility and
cuisine.   Chefs Jeff and Diane always outdo themselves.  This is the most
amazing dive food you'll ever experience, day in and day out.  And after
dinner, dominos are mandatory every night.  Unforgettable experience.  Best
sleeping I ever have done is at Pirates Point.
