Reef Divers is a very well-run operation. You set up your gear once and
that's the last time you generally have to touch it. They bring it to you
and cart it away at the beginning/end of each dive.  This would be a very
big plus for someone with limited mobility or trouble lifting things. For
the rest of us, it's a nice accommodation. Dive briefings were thorough and
included underwater landmarks and a suggested route. DMs led divers along
the stated profile but you were free to follow your own.  Although DMs were
in the water with each dive, they were fairly hands off as far as showing
things to divers.  Boats were well-maintained and spacious. Camera tables
were available.  Fresh-water rinse hose, towels, water, fruit, and snacks
were all on-board.  Boats returned to shore for lunch.  Rooms were average.
Water ran out one day but was promptly restored.  Room was not cleaned
twice during a week-long stay. Food was good and abundant. Everything was
served buffet-style.  Bikes were available to explore the island. Pool
& hot tub were both clean and in good shape.  Resort grounds were well
  The diving was very good by Caribbean standards. A number of large
groupers (Nassau, Yellow-fin, and Goliath) point to a healthy reef. Hard
& soft corals were abundant. Sponges galore. Some damage from previous
hurricane/storm surge but nothing devastating. The usual assembly of reef
fish, eels, crabs, lobsters, and turtles everywhere.  Barracudas, jacks,
permit, and the occasional tarpon. The only sharks we saw were nurse
  The biggest drawback to getting there is Cayman Airways. They have a
monopoly on flights among the Cayman Islands and are not concerned with
helping passengers. Our departure from Little Cayman was moved up 7 hours
just 3 weeks before the trip and they did nothing to help minimize the
layover in Miami (which they caused). 2 emails to Cayman Air before the
trip produced nothing - not even an auto-reply. Until something is done
about Cayman Air I will not be returning.
