This is our second trip to Little Cayman.  We found this trip to be
relaxing and pleasurable.  The hotel and dive operation are run very
efficiently with a focus on safety.  Dive briefings are thorough. 
Divemasters are courteous and helpful.  The dive operation uses Newton 42
foot dive boats that are roomy even if the maximum number of 20 divers are
on board.  (Note:  Little Cayman enforces a dive boat limit to 20 divers or
less.)  Fresh fruit, snack bars, chips and water are readily available on
the boat between dives.

Daily routine starts with breakfast between 7:00 - 8:00.  Be on dive boat
by 8:15 for 2 tank dive.  Usually return to dock by 1:00.  Then lunch is
ready.  Afternoon dive is available at 2:30, usually return by 4:30. 
Supper is ready by 6:00 PM.   Food is buffet style and is consistently

Dive boat routine is as follows;  On the first day of diving, your dive
gear is picked up outside your room at 7:30 AM.  Dive staff assembles BCDs
and regulators on tanks by the time you board dive boat.  Once boarding a
divemaster orients new divers to the boat and overall logistics.  Once
moored at dive site, simply walk to the back of the boat, sit down, point
out your equipment to dive staff.  They will bring your gear to you and
assist with donning of gear.  After dive, dive staff will remove gear and
set you up for your next dive.   ...It doesn't get better than this!

Little Cayman Beach Resort is in great shape and it is always kept
spotless.  The resort is picturesque with palm trees everywhere with
hammocks nestled below.  There is plenty of time to nap underneath the
palms while listening to the gentle breezes and distant surf.

We have been to about 30 land-based dive operations and we rank Little
Cayman Beach Resort in our top 5 places to go for overall value and
consistently great dives.
