On arrival first day some chop kept us on the south side (a bit deeper) but
the viz was great and small eagle rays visited us a couple times.

There were no bottom time restrictions during my visit.  Courtesy and deco
considerations allowed 1:15-1:25 minute bottom times each and every dive
for the full week.  And always one dive master stayed in water to be last
out, so an extra pair of enthusiastic eyes were below spotting and offering
an added safety measure.

All of the dive staff have retained their enthusiasm for discovery
underwater, and are excited to share their passion and skills with you. 
The guides show sincere respect for each other and work well as a team. 
They somehow figure out how to best help the dive guests and results in
better, safer, happier divers.

Occasionally you might have a guest that is demanding in a non stop way, or
destructive underwater, but the staff can usually find a resolution (in a
good way), so that everyone can enjoy their dive time and protect the

I must say that we had a stellar group this vist. I was one one of  6
return guests out of 18 or so, avg 16 on the boat, maybe 2 snokelers.  The
'new' people were pretty much all new divers.  Within the first 2 days the
crew had them properly weighed for good buoyancy that allowed them
increased underwater time, 45 -60 min bottom time and removed all threat of
reef damage.   Even the coral crusher (with claims of 2500+ dives) who
resisted guidance, but must have relented to a quiet prayer from the staff
since behavior eventually improved.

Gay was dubbed 'the scuba whisperer' by one guest, she is the buoyancy zen
master.  Each of the dive staff, Gay, Michele, Martha, Bob and Mike are
great teachers, always willing to help the receptive diver.  I must admit
it's great fun to watch them at work underwater, motioning divers up from
the deep,  coaxing them down from the surface and rounding us all up into a
well spa ...

Good review!  One tip I've learned -- after arriving in Grand Cayman, if
there's a long line to the "gates" when you get ready to make
your flight to Little Cayman, simply tell the security officers you're
flying domestic.  You'll be allowed to bypass the line, since it's being
slowed by customs issues that don't apply to domestic flights.
