Comments The bad: The camera facilities on the boats were poor(see above).

The good: Friendly staff, excellent food, and the boat crews did a solid job of getting us safely to and from the sites. Seas were very calm, water was warm enough that most people dove using a skin or a T-shirt. Lots of small and mid-sized fish on all the sites. Small hawkbill turtles were seen most days.
Dive trips to Little Cayman were $35 extra per person, but worth it.
