Boat had high pressure freshwater hose for cameras and a camera table. 
Cameras only rinse tank outside dive shop.  Photo operation owner Richard
Brooks produced the best dive video I've encountered.

Excellent food and food service.  Spacious, attractive room always cleaned
before we returned from morning dive.  (The Exit sign outside the room -
215 - was a mosquito magnet at night).  Friendly dive shop management. 
Somewhat disinterested front desk staff (needs improvement).

Dive boats are large and well maintained.  Rental equipment is newer and
well maintained.  Excellent whiteboard dive briefing before each dive. 
Pre-departure and post-dive roll-calls.

Only one divemaster in water with groups of 12-18 divers, perhaps not an
issue in our boat as all divers were highly experience and competent. 
Other than Dottie Benjamin - an institution in her own right - dive masters
made little or no effort to point out sea life.
Staff set up equipment and broke it down after each dive.  Hosed off camera
equipment as you boarded after dive.

Bloody Bay Wall is fabulous and healthy.  It was a week before grouper
spanning - Little Cayman is one of only a few such Carribean spawning sites
- and the reefs were alive with large, docile groupers.  Perhaps because
this is a marine park, turtles (seen on almost every dive) were numerous
and very accepting of divers.

A pod of porpoises fell in with the dive boat on one trip(an unusual
occurence according to the boat staff)and the boat circled for 15 minutes
so we could enjoy them.

All in all, one of the best Carribean experiences and a property and dive
operation I would return to.
