Brac Reef Beach Resort along with Reef Divers is  all inclusive. This not
only was for the three meals a day, 3 dives a day, 3 drinks and a dive
video. I have been to several all inclusive resorts before and this was the
best by far. The resort it self was very well kept up. The meals were a
buffet for the most part, exceptionally good and a wide variation. There
were activities every evening during the week.  There were Kayaks, paddle
boats and bicycles for guests to use. The resort also had a swimming pool
and hot tub. There was also a very nice dock for people to walk on. At
night there were lights on the dock and many fish to look at includng the
Tarpon.  Many people painted rocks or other found objects. These were found
all around the resort and were very fun to look at. The entire atmosphere
was very friendly and laid back. 

The dive operations was also exceptional. I was concerned about the large
number of people per boat usually 15 to 20. But everything was so well
organized it was never a problem. Before each dive the dive master drew the
dive site. You were then free to go with your buddy or follow the dive
master. A profile was given, but I had several dives of 60 minutes or more
and that did not seem to be a problem. The Dive masters  were very good at
finding small critters. Jayson was very outgoing, friendly and
professional. Josh was also on our boat and was very good. The topography
of most of the dive sites was very interesting, with many swim throughs. We
did go to Bloody Bay one day (weather permitting for that trip) and it was
outstanding. We also dove the wreck The Tibbets which was very interesting.
My favorite was Tarpon Reef (3 minutes from the resort) where 6 large
Tarpon hung out. Night dives are scheduled twice a week weather permitting.
Snorkling was also good right at the resort. Overall this was one of my
best diving vacations. 

The only real problem with Cayman Brac is getting there and I would suggest
going during the week if possible rather than on the weekends which are
very crowded.
