Comments Our dive shop, Wateree Dive Center in Columbia, SC returned to Little Cayman Beach Resort for another week of diving. The Grand Cayman Airport is undergoing a lot of construction but it was a headache passing thru. The LCBR is a great dive resort, with nice rooms, great food, great service by the staff & super bar. The dive operation is excellent, with nice boats, well trained crew & accessories. Romel, April & Jon were top notch dive masters. The coral looked healthy with good fish life. The viz was great & there was no current of note. We look forward to returning soon.
