This was our second year in a row staying at Brac Reef Beach Resort and
diving with their in-house dive operation, Reef Divers II.  Suffice it to
say that we wouldn't have gone back if we hadn't had such a wonderful
experience last year!  The resort is clean and comfortable, the meals
satisfying, and the company of the resort and dive staff pleasant.  The
divemasters/instructors who staff Reef Divers are genuinely fantastic
people: warm, engaging, witty, knowledgable about the local diving, and
more than willing to go above and beyond to make the whole diving
experience as close to nirvana as possible.  Even with visibility less than
2003, almost every dive site offered a cornucopia of big, small and
in-between treats for the eyes.  And effortless: set up our gear on day
one, never had to worry about a thing until after our final dive on day
six.  Very few sharks, several turtles, but hundreds of thousands of
spectacular coral, sponges, fishes, and invertebrates to feast our eyes on
at every turn.  Snapper Reef was a favorite of ours, a site my daughter and
I got to visit three times during our stay, without any complaint from
either one of us.  She found lettuce leaf sea slugs, secretary blennies,
coral banded shrimp, arrow crabs, yellowhead jaw fish, fairy basslets while
just poking around, in addition to the larger friends: tang, jacks,
barracuda, parrot fish, queen and french angels, trumpets and, of course,
snappers, etc.  She's already making plans to return next year!  And who
knows, as easy as the diving is, as healthy as the reefs look, and as
wonderful as Reef Divers treats us, there really is no good reason to look
elsewhere for an extremely satisfying dive experience.  The only downside:
Cayman Airways Express between Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.  Unlike Island
Air, CAE seems to regularly lose/misplace/forget luggage, and it seems like
it's a regular occurence. Sadly, it doesn't seem to bother the airline
personnel with whom we interacted that the absence of personal belongings
(including dive gear) might negatively impact a weeklong vacation.  Next
time, we'll most likely use Island Air from the big island over to the
sister islands.  They at least made sure our luggage traveled with us.
