Six of the nine folks had been here 4 years prior and loved it!! What a
change. Most of the group followed the baggage restrictions religiously
since flew Island Air last time but expected more from Cayman Air this
time. Guess whose bags got left in Grand and who got ALL theirs,
overweighted and all. Next AM tried to reschedule the AM two tanker for a
couple of one tank afternooner's. Thought we were asking for the moon even
though later we noticed the boats were almost empty for some of the
afternooners. No biggy, they loaned us gear for the am dives and since we
had our computers in carry on, we survived nicely. Dive boats crew almost
universally unfriendly, appearing to be overworked and with lousy morale.
One of our crew was particularly unfriendly: "DO NOT TOUCH
ANYTHING". I tried the old trick of scooping up sand on the bottom
when I had spotted a sting ray hoping that it would close in to investigate
and give me a photo op. A sharp tap and shaking finger was my reward with
the follow up tongue lashing about viz and little sand burrowers being
disturbed. Have you ever watched a big ray Hoovering along the bottom??
Talk about kicking up sand and disturbing the critters!
Resort staff also unaccomodating. Although we booked five rooms at the same
time requesting "as close as possible", the rooms were at three
points of the triangle representing the farthest points in the room chart.
This was with five months advance notice. And of course change was
Last trip food was GREAT: a steak night, lobster night, grouper and
snapper. YUM! This time, roast beef night was the highlight. Think college
food with a Caribbean twist.
Not sure if Bob Soto bought the whole operation but we avoided Soto in
Grand years ago because of the bad rep and now I understand why. Sorry to
say we will probably never return even though the diving is wonderful!!
Almost scared to return to Brac after three visits but probably will avoid
Brac Reef since same dive operator.
