This was my third time visiting Cayman Brac, staying at Brac Reef Beach
Resort and diving with Reef Divers.  Although it was a quick Memorial Day
Weekend dive trip, it was an easily accomplished rejuventation: flew out of
PA Friday morning, on Cayman Brac by friday afternoon; three-tank dive
Saturday, two-tank dive Sunday (including an excursion over to Bloody Bay
Wall on Little Cayman), eight great meals, and flew home Monday.  Only
problem: we proved that this could be done~!

Brac Reef Resort appeared to be pretty much back together after being hit
by the storm surge from hurricane Ivan last summer. The docks are almost
completely repaired; the dive boats and buildings weathered the fierce
winds with little noticable damage.  Under water the reefs and walls
apppear relatively unscathed: just the occasional demonstration of residual
from storm surge was noticable.
Visability was typical of the Caymans: >100 feet in warm still waters. 
Sponges, soft and hard corrals are abundant.  Many juveniles noted on the
reefs, and turtles check in regularly.

Reef Divers as expected provided excellent "concierge-style"
service, even for us 3-nighters! And, to the amazement of my traveling
companion, every one of the dive staff greeted me by name on arrival (last
visit was August 2004). Their friendliness extended to him during our long
weekend at Brac Reef and amply demonstrated why I like to return annually
to this jewel in the Caribbean Sea.
