From mixed reports in the Chap Book we were a little concerned, but this
was one of the best dive trips we have ever taken. The staff was terrific.
You put your gear on the boat at the beginning of the week then they set up
your tanks for every dive, you sit on the stern and they bring your tank to
you and help you get into your BC. Then after the dive you sit on the stern
again and they remove the tank. This is great service, done
enthusiastically, and is also safer. 
You could dive by yourself or follow the leader. We usually followed the
leader because they tried hard to find things and did a great job of
leading divers through the many cuts of Bloody Bay Wall (BBW). The dive
leaders work for tips and a sign in the dive shop suggest about $90 for a
weeks diving per instructor. They are, therefore, quite motivated to be
The most challenging part of the diving is the boat ride to BBW. A barrier
provides a protected anchorage at the resort but as soon as you exit the
cut it gets very rough for about 15 minutes until the boat rounds the point
for BBW. We have been to Little Cayman at times when it is too rough to go
out and we anticipated missing at least one day due to roughness, but this
time we went out every day - a morning two-tank dive and an afternoon
one-tank. The one scheduled night dive while we were there did not go due
to rough seas. LCBR has three dive boats all of which are well made and
maintained with camera tables, tank racks, excellent ladders and a head.
The room was well appointed and air conditioned. We had an ocean front room
which cost a bit more, but had a great view. Exceptional mattresses, and
the room was clean and well maintained with plenty of hot water and good
water pressure.
The food was wonderful. Three meals a day are provided buffet style in the
dining room. A wide variety of choices at all meals, including salads and
vegetables and the desserts were sumptuous. The resort has only 40 rooms so
there was never a long line at the buffet.
The diving is spectacular. BBW is a thrilling site as you float over a
6,000 foot drop off. There was little to no current underwater. Turtles
were encountered on nearly every dive plus a few nurse sharks and one Reef
shark. Several rays were spotted and we spent 5 - 10 minutes watching a ray
feed in a sand flat. All the traditional reef fish were present in good
numbers as well as a pet-able grouper, "Benjie." There were
numerous hard and soft coral as well as sponges.
There is not much to do on this tiny, undeveloped island, and it's pretty
much eat, sleep and dive, which is fine with us. While there's a nice pool,
a tennis court and a pleasant bar, we gave it all to the great diving.
