Comments I have dove Cayman Brac and Little Cayman several times and decided to take my family diving there, 4 divers, 2 non-divers. Brac Reef Resort is a very good facility for divers and mediocre for non-divers (not really any place other than the resort to entertain them). The rooms were very clean, roomy and well maintained and the food was exceptional and plentiful. The food improved drastically since the last time I dove there. Most of the night life occurs at Brac Reef for divers and locals, it seems to be a favorite watering hole for the residents as well as a favorite for Sunday buffet. The diving was very good with great boats and the dive masters Mannie and Phil were very accomodating and great at finding stuff, particularly for photography. One numerous occasions I told them what I was looking for and they did their very best to find it, most of the time successfully. The dive one the Tibbets were really great and what can you say about Bloody Bay except it's fantastic. Lots of fish life with some large friendly groupers, top hats, file fish, puffers,loads of French and Queen angels, and many varieties of butterfly fish. Sharks not really the place for them but there is an occasional one. Fish as always seemed less diver skitish at Little Cayman than the Brac. All in all a tremendous week for experienced,intermediate, and advanced beginners.
