  Coral was in good health, but there were visible signs of hurricane
damage( sand blown on coral, etc.). Newton dive boats were in excellent
condition and crew( Barbie and Chris) were experienced, helpful and very
enthusiastic. For an inexperienced diver( guide in water on every dive and
"valet service") as well as the diver with 400 dives( excellent
three dimensional maps of dive sites with accurate dive briefings and being
allowed to do your own thing); Reef Divers does a good job of pleasing
everybody. Divers were allowed input on choice of dive sites and it
appeared weather( wind and/or choppy water) was the only thing that
prevented divers from getting their choice of dive site. Crew was very
safety conscious and took roll call seriously before departure and after
each dive. Boat had all safety equipment and even a new emergency
underwater recall device which I had never seen before on a dayboat.
Beautiful walls, good visibility, and a wide, plentiful variety of fish(
including nurse sharks, many turtles, spotted eagle rays and southern
stingrays, tarpon, eels) and coral made diving Cayman Brac very enjoyable.
For those looking for topside activities the Brac provides hiking trails,
rock climbing( bring your own equipment) and is a major bird sanctuary.
Also it would seem that bicycle enthusiasts would enjoy pedaling around the
island. However, be aware that nightlife and evening entertainment is
sorely lacking. This is not Grand Cayman so bring a good book if you plan
to stay up after 10:00 PM.
